The Mullet Is Coming Back (And With It A Revolution)
With the past year's hottest social spot being a tiny video conference window, fashion statements were mostly limited to picking which unwashed hoodie to wear. But with the moment fast approaching when we can literally show our faces again, it's time to start thinking about how we want those faces to look. And what better way to express what a strange and unexpected journey we've gone through than by telling your hairdresser you want to look like Ziggy Stardust.
The mullet, the world's least employable hairstyle (pro-wrestlers and roadies excluded), is making its first-ever (unironic) comeback. First reinvigorated by Miley Cyrus/Joe Exotic in mid-2020, it's now predicted to become one of the major fashion trends in the post-vaccine summer. But instead of calling it a mullet, Gen Z influencers are going with "wolf cut," a valiant rebranding attempt to get that banjo twang out of the people's head while still paying respect to the mullet's panel van roots.
