Both men and women wear the mullet hairstyle, which was highly fashionable in the 1970s and 1980s. If you are wearing a mullet hair, it means your hair is short everywhere, except in the back. The mullet is still a popular hairstyle today, although it was not taken seriously among the American youth in the 1990s. It is not clear where the term “mullet” came from, but the Beastie Boys popularized it in their 1994 anti-mullet song “Mullet Head.”
In the 1970s, David Bowie wore mullet hair and he got away with it. Other popular musicians and artists donned the mullet in the 1980s. However, since the Beastie Boys aired their anti-mullet song, the mullet popularity sank. Still, the mullet kept its popularity among certain groups in America and Europe. Just like everything else, the mullet has a group of fans and frown-upons. The punks did not hide their derision over the mullet, just as heavy metal fans donned the style. The mullet has also remained a popular choice among players and fans of certain sports, like football and soccer.
The mullet has recently been resurrected as a fashionable hairstyle, mostly among the young ones. Emo music supporters do not mind donning the mullet, and perhaps this will go on for quite some time. It is just how it goes with hairstyles that go along with seasons and fads.
