StyleSpeak looks at how the trendy 80’s Mullet has evolved today

The iconic Mullet hair style that has set its own fashion benchmark, is re-emerging today as a trending hairstyle. In the 1970s and 1980s, the mullet hairstyle was very popular. From sports stars to musicians, the style became associated with a variety of subcultures.

The mullet offers a bold, edgy style -from the classic to its modern variations that make it perfect for anyone looking to make a statement with their hair. Whether worn by men or women, this versatile hairstyle can be tailored to a variety of face shapes and hair textures.

StyleSpeak explores the latest and trendiest variations of the mullet hairstyle for both men and women.

The Modern Mullet

The Modern Mullet is an updated version of the classic mullet that features more texture and layers. It may include shorter layers at the top of the head that gradually get longer towards the back, giving the hairstyle more movement and flow. The hair at the back of the head may be tapered or thinned out to create a more polished look. This style can be worn by men who want a more contemporary take on the mullet trend.

The Permed Mullet

The Permed Mullet is a popular variation of the Classic mullet haircut that has gained popularity in recent years. It typically features a longer, shaggier back section and shorter hair on top and at the sides. The hair is usually layered throughout, with a more defined shape at the back and a looser, more tousled look on top.

The Short Mullet

This is a more subtle version of the classic mullet, with shorter hair at the back and sides of the head and gradual layers at the crown of the head. Back hair can be cut in a graduated or layered style, while the front sections can be left loose or styled with product to create a more defined, textured look. The Short Mullet is a great option for those who want to try the trend without fully committing to the longer and more dramatic style.

The Fade Mullet

This is a modern take on the Classic mullet hairstyle that combines the edgy, dramatic look of a traditional mullet with the clean, sharp lines of a fade haircut. The Fade Mullet typically features shorter, faded sides that gradually blend into longer, layered hair at the back of the head. The fade can be a low fade, in which the hair gradually gets shorter as it goes down towards the neck, or a high fade, where the hair is shaved almost to the skin.

Wolf Cut Mullet

The hairstyle Wolf-Cut Mullet is a more creative take on the mullet. It is inspired by the choppy texture of a mullet and follows a similar pattern that has the softness of a shag cut. It provides a ton of volume at the crown and less at the sides, with lots of movement and layers towards the bottom. This style allows for a lot of styling options, whether you want a softer wolf cut or a lot of layers, and whether you have long or short hair.

The Mixie

The hybrid of both the pixie and mullet haircuts is also known as the the Mixie. It’s a very short mullet, with only the very longest parts of the hair reaching the shoulders. This style gives a chic playfulness of the standard pixie, where it’s shorter in the front, as it softens the shagginess of the mullet, making it less bold with the rock-and-roll, while long, flicky layers at the back and around the ears give the mullet an edge.

The Shaggy Mullet

Also known as ‘Shullet’, this hairstyle is the combination of the extreme shagginess of the Shag cut and the essence of a Mullet. The Shullet has the volume, texture, and fringe of a shag, but it can be cut super short around the face to chop things up a bit. A perfect Shullet has a face-hugging fringe and framing while being blended all the way down.

Curly Mullet with bangs

Women with curly hair can embrace the mullet with a style that showcases their natural texture. A Curly Mullet with curly bangs gives a softer feel around the face. Longer curly bangs make them appear lighter rather than more aggressive. Curly mullets are very in, and anything from going bold or subtle with the length and layers is up to the individual.


The Mullet hairstyle is an amazing versatile option for both men and women who want to experiment with different looks and hair lengths. The variations of the Mullet style allow men and women with different face shapes and hair textures to experiment with this popular hairstyle!
