The Mullet

"Business up front, party in the back!"

That's how the classic 1980's and early 90's hairstyle, The Mullet has been described.

The popular harido consisted of short, cropped and some would say conservatively-coiffed locks around the forehead and over the ears, and a flowing cascade of locks that started behind the ears and continued on as long as the wearer wanted. Curly hair, straight hair, wavy hair, frizzy hair - this style was worn by people with all textured hair, indiscriminately.

Popular Mullets include David Bowie and Paul McCartney in the 70's, and in the style's heyday of the 80's and early 90's one can't help but envision Billy Ray Cyrus and Michael Bolton sporting their famously-styled locks.

The hairstyle did eventually go out of style (thankfully) but on some occasions, one is often surprised to see the 'do crop up in the most unexpected of places.
