The mullet; the most rebellious cut around
We bet you remember that iconic album cover of David Bowie with lightning painted on his face and his hair bright red and… sporting a mullet! Yes, this singer was a frontrunner when it comes to transgressive styling and it’s back with a bang.
Business at the front and party at the back, the mullet is certainly a bold and modern cut. This vintage style is winning fashion followers all over the world. Even though its origins are attributed to ancient fishermen who let their hair grow longer at the back, it had its most popular moment when the iconic David Bowie wore it on the cover of “Aladdin Sane”. Years later, this haircut is still as cutting edge and looks like it’s making a comeback thanks to the likes of actresses like Úrsula Corberó, Tokyo in the series “La casa de papel”. Designers like Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Phillip Lim have also shown just how much personality this style can be on the catwalk..
Who does it suit?
It is certainly one of the boldest and most out there cuts of the moment. It’s ideal if you have a sweet good girl face or your face shape is round or oval. If, on the other hand you have strong features or a square or long face, then this cut might not be for you. However, your hair stylist will advise you and help you find the ideal shape for your skin tone. So if you’re bold enough to try the mullet then you’ll need to pay regular visits to your hairdresser to maintain the essence of the look.
Touching on the theme of color, the mullet is in itself a bold and cutting-edge style, to we would recommend combining it with brown, brunette or mahogany to let the cut take center stage. You’ll feel more comfortable with one of these.
