tHow To Style A Mullet
The mullet, a hairdo often associated with the '80s, has made an unexpected and stylish return to the hair fashion scene. This legendary cut, characterised by its 'business at the front, party at the back' ethos, is seeing a rebirth, embraced by celebrities and influencers alike. So, how does one style the modern mullet? Let's delve into the glamorous possibilities.
1. The Shaggy Mullet
If you're seeking a softer, less structured look, the shaggy mullet might just be your style. This variation features more texture and volume at the back, and soft, face-framing layers at the front. To style, use a texturising spray or styling spray, like FUL's Styling Spray, on damp hair and scrunch it up with your fingers for an effortlessly tousled effect. It's low maintenance, yet high impact!
2. The Curly Mullet
For those blessed with natural curls or waves, the curly mullet is an excellent option. The longer back allows your curls to shine, while the shorter front keeps it cool and manageable. To style this mullet, use a curl-defining cream or mousse to enhance your natural curls. A diffuser attachment on your hairdryer can also help reduce frizz and define your curls.
3. The Punk Rock Mullet
Channel your inner rockstar with a punk rock mullet. This look, featuring significantly shorter hair at the front and longer at the back, makes a bold statement. Styling this version involves some texturising products and maybe a bit of backcombing for that added punk edge.
4. The Chic Mullet
The chic mullet style marries sophistication with edge, featuring a softer transition from the short front to the longer back. Styling can be as simple as a blow-dry using a round brush to give the hair volume and movement. Use a smoothing serum for a shiny, polished finish.
5. The Pixie Mullet
The pixie mullet is a delightful fusion of the mullet with the cute characteristics of a pixie cut. The front part of the hair is usually cropped very short or styled close to the head, while the back maintains the traditional length. Styling this cut involves defining the short part with some pomade or wax for a sleek look, and using a texturising spray or styling spray, like FUL'S Styling Spray, for the longer section.
Remember, the mullet is a statement style that celebrates individuality, so feel free to make it your own. Don't be afraid to experiment with different products to see what works best for your hair texture and length. The modern mullet is versatile, cool, and allows for plenty of personalisation.
Whether you choose to rock a shaggy mullet, a curly one, or you lean more towards the punk rock or chic versions, remember that confidence is the key. Strut your mullet with attitude, and you're sure to turn heads with your trendy throwback style. After all, the mullet is all about standing out from the crowd. Embrace the party, and make the mullet your own!
