MULLETS are making a comeback as the hairstyle of the young and trendy.
The cut, short at the front and sides and long at the back, has been seen as a fashion disaster for decades.

Now, hairdressers say they are giving people the cut several times a week.
David Bowie used the “business at the front, party at the back” style for his alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Other famous mullets were worn by footie aces Chris Waddle and David Beckham and rockers Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger.
It is thought Netflix’s Stranger Things’ bad boy heart-throb Billy — played by Dacre Mongomery — has boosted the profile of the retro trim.
London hairdresser Idalina Domingos cuts a mullet at least once or twice a week. She said: “It’s a fun haircut and it’s only going to get more popular.”

Another explanation is that people who don’t want to be defined as male or female opt for mullets because it is not seen as being masculine or feminine.
Celebrity stylist Charlie Le Mindu said: “It works for every gender. We are seeing it a lot.”
And Vogue stylist Tina Outen said: “We are in an era of playfulness.”
