Decay is back!
2022 will not see the end of this trend, on the contrary, it will put it back on the map. repeatedly. And for good reason — the mullet, rather than taking a back seat, has gained enough fans around the world to spawn new forms, some more futuristic, some not. The evidence comes in the form of a mixed haircut, which is counting huge numbers of likes on social networks at the beginning of this year.
Nostalgia makes us under the influence of its magic. For several months now, we’ve been moving into the ’70s, both in fashion and in beauty. Not only resurrecting flared pants, one of the signature pieces that received a new spin on Netflix TV show “Snake,” the ’70s is also the source of a much-criticized, if not downright mocked, haircut reboot: the mullet.
Made famous by actresses, musicians, and a handful of athletes, including Chris Waddell, the famous mullet has become one of the best hairstyles of 2021. And it looks like we’re not done with this bouncy hairstyle.
Mixy, the hybrid haircut
At the beginning of this year, the mixed haircut – a combination of mullets and pixies – was a sensation on social networks. Its name lets you guess what the new hair trend could look like… but when in doubt, it’s simply a mix between a mullet and a pixie cut.
Extremely bold, and more modern than its older version, the mix is short – or almost – like a pixie cut in the front, and longer in the back in the spirit of a mullet, this time. Pay attention to keep up!
Note that for the rest, it’s all about ingenuity. The longer the back is also more tapered, while the mass of hair is more dense on the top of the head, although shorter, just like the sides. We are already seeing several versions of the cut-mix on social networks, of different lengths, with or without bangs, in different colors. All in a rock-chic spirit.
Triumph Triumph was cut off
Who would have thought, just a year ago, that mullet would count so many devotees around the world? Criticized, considered the best in tacky hairstyles, yet the mullet has won the hearts of both men and women.
Because it’s truly a cut for anyone, and that’s undoubtedly one of the two strong features of this retro-inspired cut. The other is the sense of nostalgia it can evoke, even among the younger generations who missed out on the ’70s and ’80s.
Regardless of the reason, the hairstyle has been such a hit that we’re seeing new, many unstructured versions pop up, including the mixed-street haircut.
This difference has already started on social networks, especially on TikTok. On social media popular with millennials and millennials, the hashtag #pixiemullet has already amassed hundreds of thousands of views. We’re still a long way from the 4.5 billion views dedicated to #mullet, but the year is just beginning.
