The 1980s were a decade where bigger was definitely better. Everything from the music to the popular hair styles were wild and over the top. In the decades that followed the laid back ideology of the 1970s hippies, music took a turn towards excess. The lead guitarist famed for big rock band Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora mullet hair styles took his fame to a new level.

By the mid eighties every young boy wanted to sport a hair style just like their rock idols. Perms and aerosol cans of hairspray made every wild hair style within reach. As the concept of men with mullet hair styles revolutionised, it was mainly the hair cut that made you an all-star.

A mullet is a hairstyle where the hair in the front and top of the head is cut shaggy and short and the back of the hair is grown long. The mullet is also best known for its unisex application, there was no gender discrimination when it was first introduced as the most trendy style of the eighties.

Today the mullet is considered to be a relic of the past party years. Not commonly worn in the nineties it is more a joke than a hair style now. In the decades of the twenty first century the mullet is most commonly referred to as a redneck or trucker hair cut. The youth of today are not savvy enough unlike their peers to truly appreciate the mullet let alone wear the dual purpose hairdo.

However, to this day the band Bon Jovi still performs all over the world with Sambora as the rocking lead guitarist. His fame, sex appeal and hair seem to be as big as ever.

The hair style may be dated, but rock on Richie Sambora.

A Brief History Of The Mullet

The history of the mullet goes back nearly fifty years. The mullet is a hairstyle that has received some amount of fame and notoriety. It is typically considered as having the hair short and fairly well trimmed in the front while being much longer in the back. It has been a popular hairstyle among rock and roll stars and fans as well. Because it is typically considered a more masculine hairstyle it is not often that women wear their hair in a mullet. However this does not mean that no women have had a mullet, just that it is a bit more unusual.

The mullet originated some time in the 1960s with pop singers and rock artists beginning to sport them. They continued to grow in popularity throughout the 70s and 80s as well. They have often been modified in one way or another to make them stand out a bit more, but the general pattern of having short front and sides with a long back has remained the same.

The mullet continued to persist well into the 90s and even the 2000s now. The hairstyle has grown so well known even that it can sometimes have particular lifestyles associated with it. Those lifestyles may be viewed as good or bad by some.

The strong association of lifestyle with hairstyle is not altogether typical, but it is certainly the case for the mullet. There have been several movies and television shows in which characters have even been recognized specifically for their mullet. To this day that trend continues, and there is no significant indication that it will stop anytime soon.

The mullet has clearly had a long history going on four decades now. There have been plenty of famous people from movie stars to rock stars to wear their hair in a mullet. There are even instructions available around the web on ways you can cut or style mullets. As such it does not seem like this hairstyle is a fad or dropping in popularity anytime soon.

Faux Hawk Mullet - For A Mohawk Look With A Difference

This is a Mohawk cut with the sides of the head not shaven. Men and women may wear this style alike. Woman can carry this look with long hair and men should ideally have short hair.

This style with long hair lends itself to a look that is both classic and rock and roll punk flavor because of the hair being swept upwards on the sides of the head.

In order to achieve this you will need: hair styling product, gel or paste, a fine tooth comb and a bristle brush.

It is important to not wash your hair before attempting this look. Soft and fine hair must most certainly not be washed. Application of the styling product to your hair on the sides of your head must be done using the palms of your hands. For best results use styling glue or paste.

Make a high ponytail with the bristle brush with two thirds of your hair on top of your head. The hair that forms the hairline on your forehead should be excluded from the ponytail.

Under the ponytail, you must make another ponytail with the lower section of your hair, then tease the hair in front of your head with a fine tooth comb in order to create volume. This gives the height in the faux-hawk. Softly brush your hair backwards whilst smoothing the front section. Bobby pins can be used to hold this hair in place.

Once this look has been achieved, strong hair spray should be applied in order to hold the hair in place. Check that the back of the head is okay with a mirror.

Short hair follows a similar process, using hands to make the hair straight. Thin hair should be teased in order to create volume and hair can be smoothed with a blow dryer and or a curling iron. This is the way to create the faux hawk mullet look.
