A mullet is actually the fashion icon of the decade. The problem is: we are talking about the 80s and the 90s, and some people may think that a mullet haircut has gone out of style many years ago.
That’s 100% NOT true.
Mullet is one of those fashionable and trendy haircuts, and it doesn’t matter what year is it now. What we (and millions of men) like about this hairstyle is that there are dozens of types of mullets, so you can find something suitable even if you need something unique.
Alright, let’s make it clear: mullets are not only for country boys and they are not only for hipsters. Basically, every man (and woman!) can try it, so if you don’t know what hairstyle to choose, we recommend not to ignore mullets. Let’s see if there’s anything interesting here.
Coolest short mullet hairstyles
A traditional mullet hairstyles look like this: the hair on the top and on the sides is short, while the back is quite long. That’s what we imagine when we hear the word “mullet”, and that’s a very traditional hairstyle.
However, it’s very popular even nowadays, in 2018. Of course, there are lots of variations — and here we’ll talk about short mullets, which have only one difference (that changes the look radically)..
We are talking about short mullets — in short words, it means that you don’t need to have long hair to make such a hairstyle. All you have to do is to visit your barber and to tell him what you need — look at these two pictures in order to understand what we are talking about here.
Looking for amazing modern mullet haircut?
So, you wanna make a mullet haircut but afraid that it may look outdated? Well, it makes sense, because such hairstyles have been popular since the 1970s and someone may think that mullets aren’t the best choice in the late 2010s.
We are here to tell you the truth, and the truth sounds like this: mullet is a very modern haircut, and it doesn’t look like something from the previous decade. A modern mullet is actually a mullet with long back, short side-hair and medium top hair — but as we’ve said, there are lots of variations of this hairstyle.
Lots of variations mean that you can do anything you want with your hair (and it will still look amazing). Use gel, slick it back or get it up, do lots of other things — we are sure your hairstylist will welcome this idea. Don’t be afraid to try something new, because it’s almost impossible to spoil a mullet with new ideas!
Cool mullet hair (just like in the 80s!)
Yes, we’ve just said that a mullet is a very modern hairstyle. And yes, here we are going to tell you that it’s a perfect 80s style haircut — and no, there is no contradiction here. Let’s see, why.
The thing is, a mullet can be both modern and traditional — it’s all about details, basically. You can look like a hipster with vape and fake glasses, or you can look like a rockstar (or like a redneck) from the 80s — mullet is the hairstyle that will suit all your looks.
Long story short, if you like the style, and if you like the 80s and the 90s, mullet hair is exactly what you should try. Of course, it may take some time to grow your hair, but believe me, it’s definitely worth it. Look at these pictures and you’ll get it:
What about a cool mullet mohawk haircut?
You know how people call the mullet hairstyle? “Business in the front, party in the back”. That’s because of mullet’s nature — it looks like a business hairstyle because of the short sides and front, but when you look at the back, it’s a total party — from the back, it’s a long haircut that can hardly be called business.
Mohawk mullet is much more like a “party in the front, party in the back”. It’s a quite radical hairstyle, which looks like an Indian haircut with long hair at the back and a shaven scalp. Of course, such a hairstyle wouldn’t suit everyone.
Well, if you are sure that a mullet mohawk will suit your style, congratulations — you are truly a brave person! Check these photos out in order to see how will you look after making such a haircut:
Mullet hair cut for curly hair!
Some people believe that curly hair is a problem. Most often, it’s people with curly hair who complain about their type of hair, while people with straight hair often say that they’d like to make it more curly. Well, we don’t know the reason, but it’s true.
What we know is that curly hair isn’t a problem for those who wanna make a mullet. Indeed, wavy hair can make a mullet look much more impressive because of its texture. We mean that, well, flipped ends look amazing with mullet hairstyles, and if you have wavy hair, you most likely have curled ends — and with such hair, mullet can look even better.
But if it’s not about the ends, don’t be disappointed! Some gel would make your mullet look cool, too — look at these pictures if you wanna see the examples:
3 Best mullet fade haircut styles
Look, a cool fade haircut mustn’t be all about short back hair. It may sound strange, of course, but the long length of hair can create a contrast, and when we are talking about mullets, it’s all about contrast here. The balance of business and party, remember that?
And of course, a mullet with fade sides can look very, very stylish. Just show your barber one of these pictures and he (or she) will get it. But make sure that your hair is long enough to create the mullet!
What about a hipster mullet haircut for a girl?
Alright, we hope this statement will not offend anyone, but it’s completely true: mullets are often associated with boys and men only. Well, of course, women wear mullets, too, but it’s history that makes lots of people think so. History and stereotypes, ofc.
The good news is, we are ready to break these stereotypes here, and here’s what we are trying to say: girl mullets look amazing, too! Moreover, such mullets look very good with shaved sides, and as we all know, shaved sides are perfect for women — so if you are looking for a cool hipster mullet hairstyle, check these two photos out. You’ll love them, 100%.

Everyone knows that there are no bad mullets. Seriously, you just can’t find a bad mullet anywhere — and we are happy that lots of the celebrities agree with this statement, too.
We can’t forget all those superstars of the 80s and the 90s, like John Stamos (Jesse Katsopolis from Full House), Patrick Swayze (do we really need to introduce him?), Mel Gibson, Kurt Russell, etc. However, some stars from the 2000s and the 2010s wear mullets, too — and we are sure you didn’t know that.
Yes, we are talking about Rihanna and Cristiano Ronaldo — it was a big surprise for us, but they made mullets a few years ago. It’s almost impossible to look as good as Cristiano, of course, but you can try! Check these images out:
Mix of undercut and mullet — is it possible?
You can’t deny that mullets look quite similar to undercuts. An average mullet looks very much like an average undercut with a long hair in the back, but there is one more difference here: the back must be long. All the other differences depend on the type of undercut and on the type of mullet you are comparing.
Imagine a mullet with a gap (it’s necessary!), with shaved sides, with slicked back hair and with all this stuff — and voila, you’ve got what you needed. Here are some images for those who want a mix of undercut and mullet:

When it comes to fashion, mullet hairstyles are not the most popular, yet very interesting choice. Long mullets look very fashionable and really GORGEOUS — if your hair is long and thick enough, you will definitely be in the spotlight. You and your mullet, that’s what we are talking about.
Let’s make it clear: if you want to be cool with your long hair, and if you feel brave enough to wear a mullet, well, these examples would definitely suit your style:
Faux hawk (or fohawk) mullet pictures are here
Mullets make comeback, is it true? Well, no. What we know about mullets is that they have never gone out of style, mostly because it has always changed. Nowadays, there is another cool hairstyle that can be mixed with a mullet. We are talking about a fohawk.
Fohawk (faux hawk) looks very similar to a mohawk, with short sides and long top. It makes sense that the hair in the top must be formed into a peak. If the hair in the top is long enough, you can put fohawk and mullet together, and it looks quite interesting. Look at these photos:
