Mullet Is Making Comeback As The Hairstyle Of 2021

If you thought 2020 was bad, strap in folks because 2021 isn't looking much better and it's all down to the mullet making an almighty comeback*. Of course we're only joking, 2021 is going to be much better. But the mullet business still stands.

There were some questionable dos knocking around this year. Mainly because hairdressers and barbers were forced to close due to the coronavirus pandemic which meant people were having to sort out their own barnets.

But Tony Copeland, the co-founder of the British Master Barbers Alliance, explained that things are going to take an unexpected turn, telling the Daily Star: "The modern mullet is only going to get bigger in 2021.

"We will see more men up and down the country walking around with this style. Long hair will be big news in 2021 and hair products to give control to longer styles will explode next year."

This year already we've seen Miley Cyrus take on the mullet as well as Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones, Little Mix's Leigh Anne Pinnock and of course Tiger King's Joe Exotic.

In fact, after people started tuning in to watch the Netflix documentary there was a 1124 percent rise in the search term 'how to cut a mullet'.

One of the most iconic mullets to date will always be David Bowie's crimson Ziggy Stardust do which was created by Suzi Ronson.

Writing in The Moth: All These Wonders, she said: "[Bowie] walked over to show me a photo in a magazine. It was of a model for fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto with short, red, spiky hair. He said: 'Can you do that?' As I said yes I was thinking: 'That's a little weird - it's a woman's hairstyle. And how am I going to actually do it?'"

We doubt many people will be able to perfect a mullet as well as Rob Ayton - winner of the 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."
