A British man has been crowned for having the world's best mullet hair cut. Go hard or go home, right?

Rob Ayton, 31, a graphic designer, got his first mullet cut three years ago while on holiday in Australia and at first he wasn't keen.

He only had it cut for a joke, but over the years the style began to grow on him and he kept it long at the back - going past his shoulders.

Now, on a return trip to Australia, Rob, from Bideford, Devon, has won best international mullet at the annual Mulletfest, held in Kurri Kurri, New South Wales.

Rob said: "I was coming out here for a skateboarding competition and it just happened to time with me being out here for that so I could go out to Kurri Kurri and see the mullet fest itself.

"There was eight of us from all over the globe, it was good fun, a good laugh. Three years ago, I came over to Australia got a mullet haircut, chopped it up in irony really.

"I've never been a fan of the mullet or the rat's tail, but I have to say I do like the mullet now so my point of view has changed dramatically.

"It genuinely feels like it's been a religious ceremony for me, Australia - you've been amazing."

Rob said his hair is currently down to his shoulder blades, and growing a good mullet takes 'time and patience', adding that you have to be able 'to handle a s*** tonne of negative feedback'.

He went on: "It was actually amazing, I was so stoked. There were 12 entries, eight of which actually turned up. The standard was way higher than I had first envisioned.

"I won the 'international' category, so I have the best 'international' mullet.

"You couldn't print a lot of the comments I get. The most PC one is 'you look like an 80s pornstar'.

"Generally, feedback in the UK isn't great for mullets, however more recently I've had better comments about being an individual, whatever that means."

Mulletfest is an annual event that honours the best Mullet cuts in various styles and categories, including everyday, grubby, vintage, and extreme, among others.

Their website states: "All competition entrants are judged on their haircut, overall presentation and stage presence."

Australian Paul Gee went on to win the illustrious 'Best Mullet of them All', pipping Rob to the post.
