For the record, I’m not anti-mullet. In fact, I have a deep abiding love and appreciation for Connor Claire’s baby mullet!
I’ve also had a mullet before, but it was unintentional. A stylist at a froufrou San Francisco salon I used to go to “razored” my hair a little too enthusiastically once, so rather than leaving with “J. Lo’s latest hair” (which was how the stylist sold me on the idea), I left with steep, shaggy, disconnected layers — or, in plain-speak, one hell of a mullet.
I’ve seen mullets that work on people, but…this one did not work on me.
My hair’s wavy on the top layers and straight underneath, so the top parts puffed up and radiated outward like a bowl cut that took a very, very wrong turn, and the straight parts underneath kept flat. The only way I could wear my hair down and have it look halfway decent was to straighten it out, and even then I still looked like a Filipino Carol Brady impersonator. For months I wore my hair up in a ponytail.
How about you? Have you ever had a mullet?
