A haircut that will make your appearance remarkable

written byDanny Puopolo

The modern mullet can refer to quite a fewdifferent men’s hairstyles. While a mulleton its own is defined by long hair all over, especially at the back, a modern mullet is shorter on top and the sides. The mullet is often seen as an out-of-date, unattractive style, but if you can wear it right then, it doeslook the part. Here is what you need to know to make the modern mullet work for you.

The modern mullet is characterized by two things, a long mullet (i.e. a lengthy body of back hair and short side hair) and medium-lengthfront and top hair. The word ‘modern’ in this haircut simply refers to the shorter hair at the front, so you are left free to style it however you please. Because the term ‘modern mullet’ is so broad, you might see it describing quite a few different cuts. Just remember that it’s a mullet with a short-ish top, however, it may be styled.

Long Strands Make the Best Mullet

More often it is the tops with short hair length that make up a nice mullet but here it is quite a different one. The top is fairly long as it reaches the back whilst the back is similarly extended to form a curled mullet.

14 / 77

That Faded Temple with Thick Beard

We always strive to strike a balance between hair and beard. The volume density on top with a beard is where the fun is. The fade on the sides makes this look neat overall whereas the top is all tossed with length kept relatively short.

Short Messy Mullet

Not all mullets have to be super drastic. This mullet is kept short and messy. There isn’t a huge different between the sides and the rest of the hair, but the sides are noticeably shorter which gives it that mullet look.

36 / 77

60 Stylish Modern Mullet Hairstyles for Men (41)

Modern Temple faded Shaved Slit

This is what modern hairstyle looks like, the undercut on the side is just a smart move in order to separate sides with that cheeky taper fade. Moreover, the slit shave makes it more trendy and the curled mullet in the back is where all the attention is.

37 / 77

60 Stylish Modern Mullet Hairstyles for Men (42)

Dense as Amazon Forest

Density is that one word that comes to mind when one sees this style. The balance of hair to beard is quite special especially the sides are tapered. All of that plus the beard is quite thick and dense for that balance.

60 Stylish Modern Mullet Hairstyles for Men (43)

Wavy Temple Faded Mullet

40 / 77

Long Haired Mullet with Retro Feels

Mullet is an instant receipe to a retro look. The long haired top makes it one whole unified look. The side burns here are extended in the good old 80’s times. Not to mention the mustache is that last KO punch for the retro style.

41 / 77

60 Stylish Modern Mullet Hairstyles for Men (46)

Rusty Flat Top and Mullet Yes Please

Flat Top by itself is quite a jazzy hairstyle but when paired with a cheeky mullet it becomes even better. This is a blend of two retro hairstyles and nothing about it is subtle, which is quite special.

42 / 77

60 Stylish Modern Mullet Hairstyles for Men (47)

Mullet with Straight Fringe

Although mullets are said to be haircuts inspired by dads of the 80s, it does not mean you can’t put a modern twist on it. The mullet with a straight fringe is one of them. What you need to pull this off is hair that falls slightly above your shoulders and an over-encompassing love for leather jackets (though this one can be optional). And before you think that you need to have straight hair for this cut, think again. This can work well with most hair types, straight, wavy, and curly – as long as a straight fringe is possible.

If you have a diamond or square face shape, this one’s for you. And don’t forget to sport a medium stubble (beard) to compliment not having hair on the sides.

43 / 77

Next Level Asian Mullet

For those of you with thicker hair, this style will really let you show it off. This is one of the longest mullets on this list, so if you really want to channel 1987, this one’s for you.

Peaco*ck Colorful Mullet with Temple Fade

46 / 77

60 Stylish Modern Mullet Hairstyles for Men (51)

Frizzy and Pocky Asian Mullet

This short and spiky mullet combines the classic spiky look with a short mullet. What’s great about this haircut is that the mullet is a natural extension of the spiky look.

Thick Rusty Mullet with High Fade

Thick mullets are always on fire and this one literally looks like it is. The high fade on the side with semi curled thick textures make it perfect. The lineup is tapered a bit with a sharp angular fade.

More than Buzz, Less than Long

Can it be any more retro than this? The classic mustache with sides faded slapped on with a short top and a long mullet. The top is brushed up with mullet is wavy yet rough-textured. Get on a muscle car and that’s all you need.

How Do You Style This Cut?

The modern mullet takes quite a bit of length off of the standard mullet, but there’s still more than enough to style with. You can do this however you like, but here are some good suggestions to start with:

  • Brush or comb it to one side
  • Gel it up and towards one side
  • If long enough, comb and/or gel it back
  • Gel it up into spikes (while this may be seen as a bit too ’90s, it’s still a possibility)

While those suggestions only pertain to the top, you can try styling the mullet itself in a few different ways. You can leave it to drop down, bunch it up into a ponytail, or flare it out.

How Do You Get The Modern Mullet?

If you want to try the modern mullet, you’re going to need some relatively long back hair to start with. You’ll need to have your hairstylist — or whoever else may be cutting your hair — cut the front and sides to your desired length.

Typically, the modern mullet involves relatively short sides (up to an inch or two) and a somewhat longer front and top (between one and three inches). As for the back, you can choose how long you want to keep it. Then, you’ll need your stylist to fade the long back hair into the shorter top hair.

FAQs

Is Mullet Coming Back?

The quick answer to this is “Yes.” Formal in the front and party at the back is returning.

Various athletes and actors first rocked this hairstyle to signify style and a non-mainstream look. It has been a blend of a meeting room with a nightclub due to its look.

Mullet’s focal points are those strands at the back that try to pop out of the cluster, making it look like a bunch of strands all over the place where the top is an orderly short haircut.

Some people believe that this retro look will look amazing on people having a longer facial structure as the hair gets area to expand and cluster.

Modern applications of Mullet with faded sides or brushed up top will surely innovate the classic look so get ready for some new versions of mullet.
