Believe it or not, there was a time when a male celebrity as established as Jared Leto wouldn’t be caught dead with his hair tied-up in a somewhat fashionable man-bun. But, it’s back. Whilst we’ve been talking a lot lately about the dangers of the hipster fad known as the man-bun, today we’re returning to the dark corner the man-bun was rescued from to find one of its banished inmates – the mullet.
Kick-started by the likes of Rod Stewart and David Bowie in the 1970’s, and rocked by anyone who was anyone in country music in the 1990’s – the mullet was the belle of the ball for male haircuts. It may shock you – but having your hair short at the front and the sides and long at the back was all the rage – even legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan, and comic-book hero Superman wore it with pride.
Along with many of the trends that rocked the 90’s, it died a painful death at the turn of the millennia. But – it’s coming back.
Comeback of the Century
It’s been thrown about by the who’s who of fashion in a game of Chinese whispers all year – but it’s with the arrival of the news that legendary ice hockey player is bringing back his infamous mullet that it’s all been confirmed.
The legendary right-winger who brought the Pittsburgh Penguins the Stanley Cup two years on the trot in 1991 and 1992 respectively is bringing back his infamous mullet claiming that he has to. The mullet-king is currently playing for the Florida Panthers and is jumping in the time machine in hope to not only bring back the trend, but to bring back the success – only this time for the Panthers.
It’s an interesting thought to imagine the celebrities of today rocking the mullet once more – Jared Leto anyone? Perhaps Jagr will create the comeback of the century or maybe it’ll die out just like it did before?
