For those of you unfamiliar with the mullet hairstyle, let me enlighten you: Picture a man with medium-to-long Rock Star hair. Now picture he shaves the sides and cuts the front short so that from the front, he looks like a respectable businessman. Only that you can still tell he has Rock Star hair. Have you got that picture burned into your mind? Good, that’s a mullet.
I’m going to sidestep the negative class or other assumptions that smaller-minded folks make of men with this hairstyle because that’s not my point. My point is that a mullet is never okay anymore, guys, just because it looks terrible. Also, no matter how else you choose to change your appearance, you will never be more frustrated with a hairstyle than you will be with a mullet. This is a hairstyle that not only demands that you keep the sides trimmed super-short, but demands all of the upkeep, drying time, and hairspray of long hair as well! Guys, do you really want to fight your significant other for mirror time?
I’m not sure why this hairstyle ever had a time in the first place. Maybe we can blame Billy Ray Cyrus (who, coincidentally has also lost the mullet) for starting the trend. Whatever the case, I think its time we retire it. What do you think?
