According to the Oxford English Dictionary, use of the term mullet to describe this hairstyle was “apparently coined, and certainly popularized, by U.S. hip-hop group the Beastie Boys”, who used “mullet” and “mullet head” as epithets in their 1994 song “Mullet Head”. The term “mullet head” had previously always or nearly always been used to refer to a person of dubious intelligence, e.g. as in the movie “Coolhand Luke,” where defeated villains had been referred to as “mullet heads.” Since the term probably originated from the song “Mullet Head”, and that term had previously been defamatory, “mullet” is very likely only short for “mullet head”, and is almost certainly derogatory.

The mullet and its associated lifestyle have been central themes in movies such as Joe Dirt “business in the front, party in the back” , and the television show The Mullets (2003–2004). Christian ska band Five Iron Frenzy sang about the mullet in “The Phantom Mullet,” a song off of their 2000 album All the Hype That Money Can Buy, referencing Billy Ray Cyrus and REO Speedwagon in the lyrics. The 2001 film American Mullet documents the phenomenon of the mullet hairstyle and the people who wear it.

“Giving yourself a mullet for the night is super easy and doesn’t require you to commit to a long-term mullet cut,” he continued. “You pull hair into a half-up ponytail, then wrap it into a half bun with your hair pieced out. Fan it out to shape around your face and pin the hair tie to keep in place. Spray the fanned pieces to ensure your mullet stays intact for the night.”

Hairstyles in the 1980s included the mullet, tall mohawk hairstyles, jheri curls, flattops, and hi-top fades, which became popular styles. Amongst women, large hair-dos, puffed-up styles, permanent waves, and softer cuts typified the decade. Big hair that was “often permed to achieve the desired volume” is especially associated with women of the mid 1980s as well as male rockstars of that era, especially of the glam metal genre. Television shows such as Dynasty helped popularize the high volume bouffant and glamorous image associated with it.

Between 2006 and 2008, the mullet was in fashion among individuals of Lebanese descent in Australia. The style had already been popular with the bogan subculture. The fashion trend quickly waned by late 2009. This was the type of a mullet which had a crew cut at the front, top and sides, and long hair at the back.

The Mullet haircut existed in several different styles, all characterized by hair short on the sides and long in the back. Mullets were popular in suburban and rural areas among working class men. This contrasted with a conservative look favored by business professionals, with neatly groomed short hair and very short sideburns for men and sleekly straight hair for women. White collar men’s haircuts were often shaved at the nape of the neck to create an artificially even hairline. Women’s hairstyles became increasingly long in the latter part of the decade and blunt cuts dominated. Blunt cuts of the late 1980s brought long hair to an equal length across the back. Bangs were popular, with “mall bangs”, attributed to teenage girls who frequented shopping malls, were styled by ratting bangs into peaks or mounds, and then using hairspray to keep them in place.

Totally shaved heads gained popularity among men. The sideburns of the 1960s and 1970s saw a massive decline in fashion in late 1970s. Big and eccentric hair styles were popularized by film and music stars, in particular amongst teenagers. It was these hairstyles that the 1980s became iconic for. Although straight hair was the norm at the beginning of the decade, as many late 1970s styles were still relevant, by around 1983 the perm had come into fashion. This was in large part due to many movies released at the time, as well as possibly being a rebellious movement against the 1970s. In 1984, sideburns made a comeback but were slightly thinner and shorter, and better groomed than those of the 1970s, lasting until the end of 1986. These sideburns were usually (but not always) used as an add-on to the Mullet haircut. Spiked hair, teased hair, brightly colored hair, and shaved hair sections were popularized in the 1980s by the punk movement, as were the Mohawk and its twisted variant, Liberty spikes.

Mum’s implication is clear – the mullet makes me look like one of those other Eighties throw-backs, the women from Greenham Common. A tad narrow-minded, maybe, and hardly flattering.

After the much-publicized 1992 DC Comics storyline in which Superman apparently died, the character returned in the 1993 follow-up storyline, “Reign of the Supermen” in which he was depicted with a mullet. He remained with that hairstyle until 1997, and this look was depicted in an action figure released by Mattel in 2009.

Indie rock duo Tegan and Sara sported mullets during their The Con album era. Tom O’Neill, famed hair stylist and underwriting thief, was also known to sport the mullet hairstyle in the early 2010s.

Scalia is also all about doing a “muhullet,” which is a combination mohawk-and-mullet look that’s fun for long hair. “You leave the hair long in the back but you create volume at the top like a mohawk!” Scalia said. Like they say, this isn’t for the weak of heart.

I’m flattered but not convinced. It’s amazing how I suddenly start to notice everyone else in the salon – there isn’t another mullet among them. Is it me, or is the woman in the chair next to me, with the impeccable, bouncy, feminine blow-dry, suppressing a smile?

Style: The modern mullet is a swept-behind-the-ears, choppy version of the party/business appropriate ’80s sensation that evokes Bowie, not Billy Ray. Flexible length and optional bangs make this bold style casual and customizable.

Many young women in Europe and North America dyed their hair a rich burgundy or plum-red in the last half of the decade. Auburns and reds were favored by those who aspired to emulate Molly Ringwald. But non-traditional haircolors, such as bright blue, crimson, green, and shocking pink gained favor from the punk subculture. Contrasting color streaks were popularised by teenagers. Big permed hair for women (and some men) was popular. Chemical hair treatment was popularized by the perm hairstyle, which resulted in soft, full curls. By the late 1980s, the permed bouffant had become highly fashionable among women of all walks of life, notably Princess Diana. The long, permed hair look was particularly popular amongst male rock stars of this period, associated with heavy metal and glam metal bands of this era such as Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and Whitesnake.

During the middle and late 1980s it was unfashionable to part either men’s or women’s hair as the perm made the center parting look unattractive. Mousse was used in styling an individual’s hair to attain a desired shiny look and greater volume; some mousse even contained glitter. Hairsprays such as AquaNet were also used in quantity. Artificial dreadlock extensions were inspired by the Rastafari movement. Michael Jackson wore his hair in Jheri curl style in the 1980s; it was popular among African Americans in the early decade, but its popularity waned by the end of the decade, with the hi-top fade partly replacing it. Hair gel was used by young men to effect the preppy look of a well groomed, short hair style. Crimped hair was as fashionable as the large wave.

Editors Note: In light of today’s article in The Daily Beast in which I’m quoted about lesbian haircuts, I wanted to repost this article that Chloe Curran wrote for us two years ago. It’s interesting to see what has changed regarding women’s hair. I have to say, I don’t personally find a haircut particularly “liberating” as the Daily Beast article highlights in the buzz over Kristen Stewart’s new cut. But hair and fashion can certainly make a statement.  Style is always interesting to watch as culture shifts, particularly concerning lesbians.  Should we add the new Kristen Stewart blonde and buzzed look to Chloe’s list?
