Mullet


The plague of the mullet has been regarded by many for years as the worst hair style know to mankind, although the Beehive runs a close race……. the mullet wins by a hair! Some people believe that the Mullet originated in the United States of America in the early 1980’s when in fact the Mullet has been around for thousands of years well before Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue. 

It is stated that the Neanderthal was the first known Mullet wearer in history.


If you take a look at the Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt, which has been dated back 4500 years ago, it is clearly evident that the Sphinx has a mullet. There is a Geologist, Robert Schock that claims the Sphinx actually dates back 10,000 years, if this IS true then the mullet has been with us since the beginning of mankind. Although the years and weather have taken a toll on this wonderful piece of artistic history you will notice the short hair at the front, the long hair at the back and no sideburns so voila…The Mullet!



James K. Polk the 11th President of Untied States of America is generally regarded as having the most notable Presidential mullet.




The mullet became popular in the 1970s, due in part to the influence of David Bowie, who wore the haircut during his Ziggy Stardust and Diamond Dogs phases.


Many famous people in modern day culture sported this hair style. The most famous would be Billy Ray Cyrus. He wore one just because he liked it.




Mel Gibson also had a mullet in the lethal Weapon series. Brad Pitt even had one. I have a confession. I dislike the mullet hair style immensely but Patrick Swayze made that style look damn good!

The mullet is fron an era gone by and it should be illegal for hair salons to agree to such a cut. lol

I'm gonna go out on a limb here in defense of the mullet. I really liked it on my British punk/new wave bands, esp. the lead singer of The Vapors. I never knew that hairstyle as 'mullet', I used to call it 'the Dave Fenton'. My friend even cut my hair like that when I was a senior in high school. I figured it evolved out of the 'shag hairstyle'.

I hope the mullet doesn't come back! Clever writing here!

The mullet is more than a hair cut, it's a life style. Just look at Jared Allen from the MN Vikings. Best mullet ever.

Only a Canadian would be writing about a MULLET!!!! Hilarious!! Seriously. And you know what? I actually like that haircut. I do! Guys look like hunksa-aburning-love when they've got all that long hair hanging down the back.

Nice! I saw a lady in a store recently who had a mullet that was frosted on top, and dark in back. It was awesome.

Some of those mullets were quite sexy, but I still couldn't date someone that had one.
