Return of the Mullet
Yup. It’s back. The Mullet!
I remember a couple months ago when I got my first request for the cut… it was a teenager who came in and said that he wanted a different kind of cut.
He wanted the sides shaved close. He also wanted the top of the head cut short and the hair in the back to stay long.
Me: “So you want a mullet, then?”
Him: “No man! Not a mullet! Just shave the sides, cut the top short, and leave the back long…”
Me: “That’s a mullet.”
Me: “Yup… still want it?”
Him: “Yeah… but that’s really a mullet?”
Shortly afterward, a local hockey team had made it to the playoffs, and as a show of unity and a rally point, they all decided to get mullets (one didn’t have enough hair for a mullet, so I carved “ATL” into his head).
Then a lady came in and asked for “The Wolf.” – essentially a wild shag
How long it will stick around… who knows? But at the end of the day, more and more people are requesting this style, and they are asking for different versions.
I am a barber in Marietta and the Cobb County area. I graduated from the Gwinnett Barber Institute and have been cutting hair since 2019.
Atlanta has always been my home, minus eight years when I was a Navy musician in Japan and Seattle.
When I am not cutting hair, I am usually found spending time with my family or at Atlanta United matches with the Terminus Legion in the supporters section.
