No I am not talking about the fish that you find swimming along the South African coastline but that awesome hairstyle that some of us either sported back in the day when we had hair (well especially me) or we knew of someone that felt they where really “cool” with this particular style
For those who may have been in a coma or asleep for years the mullet is a type of haircut, in which the hair is long at the back of the head (usually at least the shoulders), but much shorter on the top, front, and sides of the head. The result looks like long hair from behind, but short hair from the front. In the United States the mullet was trendy in the 1970s, 1980s, an' early 1990s, although in different forms - plain and spikey in the 70s/often bouffant and blonde highlighted in the 80s; the style has on account of the early 90s, become the subject of ridicule in some circles. A common description of the mullet hairstyle and its versatility is "Business in the front, party in the back".
Rednecks who shop at Wallmart and people from the far East of South Africa (Benoni, Springs etc) are possible candidates these days to sport this style.
