Business in the front, party in the back, that's how you used to describe a mullet cut. Today, a trend that was sometimes looked on as a haircut gone sorely wrong has re-established itself in so many variations. Sometimes your mullet is a mullet-pixie and sometimes it's a mullet-shag. It might have been shaped by a razor, it might be buzzed up into a mohawk and it might be a teeny-weeny-micro-fringe-wispy-bits-at-the-nape-mullet. Whether mini, micro, mohawk or pixie, we wanted to know more about the re-emergence of the mullet.

We spied some must-have mullets by Reilley Jenks (@alottavagyna), a hairdresser at Lavish Hair Lounge in Albuquerque, and asked her to give her take on the mullet and why it’s been staging a comeback the past few years.

“I think people have come to this point in self-expression where hair provides so much fun for people,” Reilly says.  “And I think a mullet is such a great way for people who like to do things a little bit different to set themselves apart.  I think the expression of hair has changed so mullets have become more acceptable.”

So what makes a mullet?

“A mullet is classified as having a shorter fringe, something above the eyebrow, and the top or the areas around the ears being much shorter; it can be personalized for whoever is wearing it,” Reilly continues. “I generally do like for them to be blended vs disconnected though that's a personal choice. I’m so drawn to a mullet-shag which is to me the perfect haircut.

"I cut my mullet with a razor because I like to achieve an edgy and soft look around the face, particularly, though I might do some finishing with shears once the hair is dried just in case there are any areas that are a little heavy. (I don’t dry cut with a razor.)  When I dry the hair, more often than not I am diffusing it because I love to play with people’s natural texture.”
