Oh, the mullet.
What glorious being came up with such a phenomenon? It has given us laughs, tears, sneers and Halloween costumes over the years… And I don’t think the style will ever disappear – although, many stylists would like to see it banished to the deepest, darkest places on Earth.
But love them or hate them, mullets are one of those things that no matter how hideous, you just can’t look away. It has to be one of the most talked about hairstyles over the years, and no matter how many people badmouth them, there will always be that guy (or girl… But mostly guy) who will one day declare his hair to be “business up front and a party in the back” in an attempt to “bring the mullet back” – cue the snickering from friends.
So since I have concluded that the marvel of the mullet will never leave, we should celebrate it (but never – EVER – get one ourselves). Here’s a few of our favourite flavours of mullets that we could never possibly erase from our memories, no matter how hard we try. (Due to the sheer volume of mullets out there, it was impossible to include ALL the classics. But here’s a taste…)
The pretty boy
The Billy Ray
The Rock Star
As you can see, the mullet is a complicated and confusing beast. You never quite know what a person who chooses to go the mullet-route was really thinking, but you have to give them credit for going for it. Having said this, one last word on the cut that just keeps on giving:
Friends don’t let friends get mullets.
