Everything you need to know about the modern mullet : 2021’s coolest (and most surprising) hair trend

23/07/2021 / Editor's picks

If you’d have asked me a couple of years ago to name three styles I would have put money on *not* coming back into fashion, I would pretty easily have chosen juicy tracksuits, crocs, and (most definitely) the mullet. 

Cut to 2021: Juicy tracksuits are a fave of every insta baddie from Kylie Jenner and Addison Rae to Bimini Bon Boulash. Crocs are a summer staple of Justin Bieber and Post Malone, and are selling out in Urban Outfitters. And most shockingly of all, the mullet is pretty much officially the coolest hairstyle out there – and I’m 100% here for it.

Whilst the rise of the iconic ‘business in the front, party in the back’ hairstyle might be a trend we didn’t expect, it’s for sure one that continues to grow – with a tonne of our fave celebs sporting the look over the past year. The modern mullet is edgy, sexy, gender-neutral, and surprisingly wearable – which goes some way to explain why everyone is kind of obsessed with it. We’ve gathered some info and tips for those bold enough to consider the chop. Read on to find out more.
