It’s True, Mullets Are Back In Fashion

We’ve all suffered a bad hairdo or a few… and we all know someone that probably has one at the moment. A bowl cut to a short fringe. We’ve all experienced it!

Remember the Mullet? The ultimate hairstyle back in the day? The hairstyle we thought had long gone and was STAYING in the past? Well. It’s back. Not sure what to think of that.

24-year-old hairdresser, Idalina Domingos, who works at a salon in London, stated she cuts the long gone hairstyle for customers on the regular.

Idalina said:

“I cut at least one or two a week.

“There are these modern mullets, people are coming round to the idea. It’s a fun haircut to have and it’s only going to get more popular.”

Peckham-based hairdresser Jackson Acton also said: “You can’t go wrong with a mullet.

“I’ve done a lot of them in the last year for both girls and guys.”

Not that we need to explain but the mullet is a hairstyle that is short at the front and sides, but left longer at the back. Nice.

It was huge in the 1970s and 1980s, when stars like Rod Stewart and David Bowie rocked it.

We can probably blame the return of the look on Stranger Things….

Reader in performance and visual culture at Queen Mary University of London, Dominic Johnson, believes the reason behind the mullets return is political.

He explained:

“It sounds silly but it’s tied to a longer tradition of using whatever means are available, whether that’s a haircut or wearing lipstick, or changing the way you use language, in order to attach to a particular identity.”

Will you rock this look?
