Mullet Madness

Business in the front, party in the back - you know we be talking ‘bout Mullets this week.

One of the most defining haircuts from the 80’s and 90’s is making a surprising comeback. If you have been living in tragic ignorance, the Mullet is where you rock a short front and sides, but let it hang at the rear. The hairstyle has been around as long as high fashion, but the name was popularised by the Beastie Boys banger, Mullethead, which features sound advice such as: “Cut the sides, but don’t touch the back”.

Consider a mullet.

Suitable for both men and women, the Mullet has found its way onto the heads of many iconic figures in history. Billy Ray Cyrus, David Bowie and even Rihanna have all been seen donning the accomplished look. Want to be more like them?

Grow a mullet.

A more heroic Mullet can be found upon the one and only, Man Of Steel. In 1992, DC comics decide to kill off Superman. However, when he made his inevitable comeback in 1993, Superman returned sporting a super-Mullet. Seriously though, how rare is it that you can rock a hairstyle so dazzling that Lois Lane does not realise you have exactly the same face as the bloke flying about town?

Get yourself a super-Mullet.

With thick lips and a small triangular mouth, Mullets are occasionally known to jump out of the water. They are found in temperate and tropical waters but you will also find some species in freshwater. With unusually muscular stomachs for this type of fish, when th… hold on, that’s that wrong kind of Mullet.

Catch a Mullet.
