mullet? Really now? Actually, we associate this weird hairstyle trend more with Prollo soccer players in the 80s. But stars like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, or Dua Lipa and also the designers and models of the fashion shows at Gucci, Saint Laurent & Co. are now showing that the question “Is a mullet modern again?” There is only one answer, namely: Yes!

What is a mullet?

The mullet hairstyle is a haircut in which the hair is worn short in the front and long in the back. This is how the German name is composed, namely from the first two letters of the four words “front short, back long.” The "mullet" - that's what the mullet is called in English - originally became popular in the 70s and 80s by musicians like David Bowie or Paul McCartney. But even with stars like David Hasselhoff, Nena, or Patrick Swayze (we just say “Dirty Dancing”) we immediately have to think of the mullet. Around the time that footballers like Oliver Kahn or Mike Werner started wearing trendy haircuts, the mullet lost its cool image. Wearing a mullet is considered embarrassing and chubby. Until now.

Is Mullet back in fashion?

As in the 70s and 80s, the stars are bringing the trend of mullet hairstyles back onto the scene in the 2020s.

Hairstylist Laurie Heaps, who is responsible for some of the current star mullets, finds it hardly surprising that Generation Z is jumping on the mullet cut trend and taking advantage of its macho image:

"We women feel freer, break norms and go against the grain. The look is bold and strong - it's a kind of renaissance of female empowerment. As women feel freer to express themselves, styles like the hi-low are reappearing."

This also fits the increased demand for the mullet in the trend salons in Germany, mainly in Berlin, as the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” reports. Although the mullet is a hairstyle that can be worn by both men and women - it is a non-binary cut - the demand among women is particularly high at the moment.

Mullet Cut: Who does the trend hairstyle suit?

The nice thing about a mullet haircut: it actually suits everyone. The unisex hairstyle can be worn with curly hair as well as with straight or wavy hair.

Since it's an "ugly" haircut (similar to ugly sneakers), you don't need to worry if the mullet cut suits you either. It “flatters” almost every face shape.

How long does the hair have to be for a mullet?

That's the good thing about the mullet: it can be worn in many different ways and with different hair lengths. Only the hair on the back of the neck (also colloquially called “neck wallpaper” in the case of mullets) should always be at least five centimeters longer than the hair on the front part with the fringe. Otherwise, you can also wear the “Voku” shoulder-length or medium-length or with long hair.

 

How do you style a mullet?

To style the mullet, you should invest some time so that the hairstyle does not look unkempt. When it comes to styling, the structure of the hair is particularly important.

Mullet Hairstyles Curls:

Curly hair should be prepared with appropriate care (hair mousse) and blow-dried with a diffuser.

Mullet Hairstyles Straight Hair:

It is best to blow-dry straight hair with a paddle brush and then gently twist the front section and side hair with the straightening iron.

Practical: You can still style classic hairstyles such as a braid or a bun with the mullet, the hair on the back of the neck is enough for that. Sleek hair also looks classy with a mullet – simply add gel to your hair and sweep the bangs back.

Cutting mullet hair yourself

Trend researchers give another possible reason for the comeback of the mullet hairstyle: in times of Corona you can simply cut it yourself and don't have to go to the hairdresser. It is difficult for us to judge whether this is really true. The fact is that the mullet with its fringed bangs is more forgiving than a sleek bob.

Which shag cuts are currently in fashion?

Not only do the catwalks show it, but shag hair or mullet hairstyles for women are also absolutely hip. In order to be able to style the mullet in a modern way, you can also rely on trend hairstyles 2022 that are strongly inspired by the mullet.

These currently include the "Wolf Cut", which is already conquering street styles...

… or the “Shullet” is what fashion professionals and bloggers are currently into.

The “Long Pixie” is also a relative of mullet hair.
