This hairstyle — short in the front and long at the back — has been described as “business in the front and party in the back.” The term mullet has been credited to U.S. hip hop group Beastie Boys, thanks to their 1994 song Mullet Head.
Mullets have been around since the sixth century, but back then they were called the “Hunnic” look. Modern versions were made popular in the 70s by British singers Rod Stewart, David Bowie and Paul McCartney. In the 80s,the mullet spread through Europe and around the world. Moving through the 90s, mullets started to die out. In July 2010, Iran has banned men from wearing mullet hairstyles.
