The Comeback of Mullets and How to Rock Them


In a stunning turn of events, mullets are back. A mullet haircut is affectionately referred to as “business in the front, party in the back.” This choppy cut has a short front and a long piece in the back. It's gender-neutral, edgy, and the epitome of 70’s style. After its initial rise to fame, this look became dismissed as dated. However, now in 2021, it’s been recognized as a haircut that’s incredibly versatile and unique. Celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Zendaya have been seen sporting variations of the mullet and looking fantastic.

There are many variations of the mullet, some sleeker and others wilder. If you’d like to style your mullet in more of a smooth, straight style, massage the hair with Living Proof’s No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner. This nourishes the hair and blocks humidity. Then, spray the hair with KEVIN.MURPHY’s BLOW.DRY EVER.SMOOTH. This is a heat-activated spray, so it will smooth out the hair when you hit it with a blow dryer.

2021 has brought mullets back. Now, many hair lovers are rocking the “shag mullet” that features a heavily textured mullet with lots of layers. If you’d like a mullet with a little more volume and this is the look for you. We love this look from Jenny from @greenopalsalon. This look is texture, unique, and beautiful.

To achieve a style similar to the one above, spray down the hair with UNITE’s 7 Second Detangler Spray to free the hair of any knots. Curl the hair away from the face, wait for them to cool, and run your fingers through them to separate and loosen them. Then, mist some of ELEVEN’s Dry Finish Texture Spray throughout the hair and scrunch with your hands to create a slept-in look.

Alexis @alexismoulds also brings us a rad mullet shag cut shown above. It gives a spotlight to the client’s curls, color, and personal style. It’s important to remember that the client’s wants and needs go into what kind of mullet they’re thinking of rocking. If they’re a curly-haired babe, try Moroccanoil’s Curl Control Mousse. This seals in moisture, keeping the curls defined and shiny.

Mullets are back in a brand new way and we LOVE it. If you’re ready to embrace the mullet life, load up your cart with the necessary items. Look through Premier’s webstore to snag these must-haves.
