The Mullet Haircut

Even at the height of popularity, the mullet haircut was not for the timid. Known as the “business at the front, party at the back” cut, the mullet has some attitude.

Some of the most famous mullets are from hockey players like Jaromír Jágr and Patrick Kane and country music’s Billy Ray Cyrus and Blake Shelton. Baseball has seen it’s share of mullets and there is definitely more flow emerging from the back of baseball caps these days. One of the most dedicated mullet wearers is Oklahoma State University football coach Mike Gundy.

Believe it or not, the mullet is making a come back. Well, for men with attitude. Modern incarnations of the mullet add mohawks, fades, pompadours, flat tops and hair designs to the look. They can be short, medium, or long but mullets always have flow.

What stays is the same is short fringe at the front and hair long enough to cover the neck at the back. Check out these pictures for 25 classic, modern, and futuristic ways to get some flow.
