There isn’t any delicate strategy to tackle this, so we’re simply going to return out with it: the mullet haircut is staging a comeback, and no, we’re not kidding. Oh, wait, do not go! We’ve excellent news, and it is that that is not the identical throwback look you would possibly keep in mind from the ’90s (as a result of that one firmly belongs within the Tiger King documentary and “Achy Breaky Coronary heart” music video). Translation: Mississippi Mudslide haircut, ’tis not.
“This haircut is for somebody who’s assured, who steps outdoors the field, and whose model is on the edgier aspect.”
No, the newest rendition of the faithfully divisive “enterprise within the entrance, occasion within the again” model is far cooler and far more low-key. (Though you can all the time pull an Iris Legislation and stick with the unique.)
