The modern mullet has become something of a phenomenon of late, and as far as we can tell its popularity is only continuing to grow, pun intended. If you're looking to dip your toes into the mullet world here's everything you need to know: how to style your mullet, how to grow a mullet and how to ask your barber to cut your mullet.
What should I ask my barber for?
You can discuss the type of mullet look you're after with your Barber who will advise on the best style for your hair type and lifestyle. How defined and short at the sides you wish to go is your call. A tapered mullet is something we see a lot of, but you can also have a softer, scissor cut finish which would result in a more subtle look. What's imperative is the length at the back, ask your barber to maintain the length through the back but ask for texture to be created by layering. This works particularly well if you're curly back there. As for the top, again, you have some options here. The most dramatic look would require a crop type finish on the top, super textured and only a few inches in length. A more modern twist is having the top and back similar lengths. Simply ask your barber to continue on as they did at the back.
Styling your Mullet
Texture and volume is the absolute key to styling any mullet, you have two choices here - either our Sea Salt Spray or Sea Salt Volume Mousse are your perfect companions. The mousse is best applied to wet hair before drying to give fullness and texture whereas the spray can be used on wet or dry hair to give an even fuller look. These products will add sizeable texture and help define the waves you'll be after. When it comes to how you finish your mullet there's plenty of wiggle room depending on the desired effect. Our pomade will be great for adding high shine and hold, particularly useful for a curly mullet. If you've more of a short mullet or a dyed, perhaps blonde mullet we'd say you're better off emphasising the texture and flow with our best selling texture paste.
The mullet is a cut that requires patience and whilst in the growing phase, much like a beard, there's going to come a time where you'll be faced with the temptation of giving up. We advise you to stay the course, when executed correctly (with our help this part is easy), the mullet is a great cut, super modern yet totally timeless. Business in the front, party in the back.
