The Mullet is Back!
Or so says the chick who cuts my hair. She should know -- she's about 25, Japanese, with starkly chopped hair and big black boots. She cuts the hair of movie and television actors, models and musicians. She also does some modeling.
If Sashumi is correct, then the mullet has gone through major rehab. A staple among guys in the Eighties (including me) who thought they looked cool, the mullet eventually became a joke, a default setting for Southern rednecks, many of whom suspiciously were named Randy and whose follicular role models were Billy Ray Cyrus and John Daly .
It may well be that the mullet is making a comeback. Maybe we will soon see the stars of the entertainment world and others sporting the wooly, neck-shielding mane whose clarion call is "business in the front, party in the back!" If so, this time you and Sashumi can count me out.
