    And yes, they were called "Mullets" back in the '80's.

    Kurt Russell's modernist mullet in Deathproof is a veritable mane of majestic coifage, while his Big Trouble in Little China locks set the gold-standard for the classic 80s mop. I contend he's been the mullet master for decades. He's had some form of the cut nearly continuosly since his earlier days and explored nearly every permutation of the artform: west coast fluff, southern rock drape, frontiersman neck protector, Roadhouse special, pretty-boy pompadour, etc. If you made a graph of the business-to-party ratio and plotted all of the most popular points along it, ol' Kurt would be there at every one of them and likely doing it better than his contemporaries.

    The man is both an innovator for the future of the cut a vanguard of its venerable legacy.

    All naysaying aside, (and I definitely get the humour of it all),
    back in the day the so-called mullet really worked for me.
    I could make a long-hair statement and still be acceptable for the workplace environment.
    A few years down the road I finally went back to the full bore long hair of my youth, but the mullet served it's purpose at a certain point in time.

    I grew up in the age of the mullet. Good times.

    This post very nearly brought my breakfast coffee and sweetroll up.
    Even when I was younger, I recognized that the so-called "mullet" haircut was about the dumbest thing ever. Never had one......never will.

    Well, I might be in contention :D

    I have a short, business like cut in front, and my hair in back goes almost to my waist. Although I pretty much wear it in a pony tail 100% of the time (except when I'm sleeping).

    But when I do have it down (like after a shower), it's a pretty sick mullet.

    Cheers,
    Doug

    It might not be the best of all mullets but it looked ridiculous in DWW.

    So you're becoming all party? And that's grounds for a frowny face?
