What Is A Mullet?
Mullets, mullets are so fun. Mullets could be for anyone! (But they’re not). The term “mullet” typically refers to a hairstyle that is short on the top and sides and long in the back. People who rock the “business in the front, party in the back” are truly special and they should be glorified at all costs.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the History Channel did an entire feature on mullets. Apparently dudes have been rocking the mullet from the ancient Roman days. That’s a long time right? Is that too far to think back to? I don’t disagree. So let’s go to someone we see every single day. Mister Benjamin Franklin on the $100 bill. That is a “skullet” if I’ve ever seen one. (bald on top but hair in the back). The mullet really took on popularity in the 1980’s. Still today, mullets are associated with country music, but there are a lot of other artists in other genres who have sported the mullet in their days.
Different Types Of Mullets
Over the years there’s been many different names for mullets and many different forms of them. There’s the “classic mullet,” which you know is the traditional version of the mullet. The hair is shorter on the tops and sides, but longer in the back. Then we have the “Camaro Cut,” which is when the hair is shorter on the tops and sides, but there’s a longer, layered back that is styled with feathering. How could we forget the “Kentucky Waterfall,” that looks like a beautiful cascading waterfall in the back? Or the “Missouri Compromise,” that features short hair on one SIDE but longer hair on the other. My husband and his hockey friends have their own unique one called “The Hockey Hair.” I can’t really explain that one, but anyone who plays hockey knows what I’m talking about. And lastly, the “Tennessee Top Hat,” where the hair in the back is piled high on top of the head, resembling a top hat.
No matter what style, the outcome is unique. And studies show that people with mullets are more fun, more free-spirited and have a better look on life. According to StudyFinds, “…the study finds that those with the unique haircut enjoy an average of five nights out a month. Meanwhile, the non-mullet crowd lag behind with an average of only three nights out.”
So, who are the party boys and girls of entertainment? The following superstars rocked a mullet at one point in their careers.
