Mullet

Definition: Mullet

A mullet is a hairstyle that was most popular in the late 1970's through the early 1990's, spreading its "business in front, party in the back" look across the country thanks in large part to hockey players, rock stars and MacGyver. Thank goodness it's almost extinct!

The mullet leaves hair short on the sides and in the front, but long and flowing down the neck. Some mullets also have a rattail or a 'tail'. This is a thin section of hair that extends much longer than the rest of the hair in the back and is often braided. Mullets have been worn by both males and females; however, the proper feminine term for mullet is femullet.

Singer Billy Ray Cyrus is well known for wearing the mullet far beyond its time, and Joan Jett is hugely responsible for making the femullet rocker chic. Most recently, the mullet has been spotted in hipster enclaves such as Williamsburg, Brooklyn; Ukrainian Village in Chicago; and the Mission District in San Francisco.

I noticed way too many guys in Europe with mullets when I was there last summer. Ugh. At least, they're virtually nonexistent here in the US. I've never seen any really pull it off.

I live in the South and yeah, the mullet is a major DO for many guys and gals alike. My brother has one. the back is very long-probably 8-10 inches from the nape of his neck. It is prized by all his redneck friends who can only boast a mullet of half that size. Some of his older HA buddies have braids longer than that running down their backs. PS. betty white - me gusta su comentario 'trabajo enfrente, fiesta detras'!!!

y'all i was in buenos aires last week and the mullet is THE HOT hairstyle for the hipster male (and some females, too). i tried to explain that it wasn't cool (trabajo enfrente, fiesta detras) but the language barrier wouldn't allow it.

There was this a-hole in Orlando, Florida a couple of weeks ago rocking a mullet when I went down there to visit. You don't know how overjoyed I was when I turned around and realized he had a mullet..I didn't have to say anything to him, obviously he has been punishing himself for a while.

I work with a woman who has a femullet. Nasty. The mullet has to be the worst hairstyle in the history of hair. I'd rather be completely bald.
