Mullet: The Terrible Hairstyle of the 1970s, 1980s and Early 1990s

The mullet is a hairstyle that is short at the front and sides and long in the back.

Mullets were used by rock stars Rod Stewart, David Bowie, Andy Mackay of Roxy Music, and Paul McCartney as far back as the early 1970s.

The zenith of the mullet’s popularity in 1980s continental Europe has been described as an “age of singing tattooed Swedish Flokati Rugs”.

In the United States of the 1980s, the mullet became popular within lesbian culture, where it came to be used as a way of identifying oneself as a member of that culture in public.

These interesting photos show people in mullet hairstyles from between the 1970s and early 1990s.
