Two Melbourne men have been jailed after leaving a man blind in one eye due to taking offence at the victim's man-bun hairstyle in a nightclub.

Both Brent Moresco, 20, and Bradley Elmore-Jeffries pleaded guilty to recklessly causing serious injury to environmental scientist Elliot Harvey.

Mr Harvey was attacked in a nightclub in May 2017 and lost sight in his right eye, despite multiple operations.

Prosecutors said the pair had taken offence at Mr Harvey's man-bun hairstyle and punched him.

Mr Moresco, who also sports a man-bun, will be setenced to time in a youth justice centre.

Mr Elmore-Jeffries, who is also facing a separate assault charge, was taken into custody pending sentencing later this month.
