How The Mullet Wig Started

Photo of mullet wigA number of people do not exactly know where the mullet wig came from. This is perfectly understandable when you eventually know how far into history this hairstyle actually goes. Comprising of long locks of hair this style is very much similar to Rastafarian dreadlocks. The only difference is that the locks of hair are not as many and not as thick as dreadlocks. Anyway, let us get deep into how this style actually became what it is today, a flashy global hair trend.

For your own information the mullet is yet another hairstyle adopted from the commoner and attributed to celebrities. This is to say this style was not popular until celebrities in the 1970s and 1960s started manipulating its humble origins. David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust started the very first experimental phase with a rather jittery start riddled with much nervousness.

I mean, what would you do if you tried out a hairstyle that everyone might end up laughing at? However, this very modest beginning was in later years to be sabotaged by women readily embracing gender rights. So Florence Henderson stepped up a gear and established herself as the first female celebrity to try it out, and boy was it a resounding success.

But this is just a tip of an iceberg melting at the hands of a planet warming up gradually. Michael Bolton, Phil Collins and Hulk Hogan then took advantage of a growing media industry to set it apart from the normal trend it had begun to become. Eventually more and more celebrities started trying it, with the obvious result of people going out of their way to have it.

So as you go through this article you might be thinking, why not? If anything people around you will love it. Just try it out and see how well people respond to it. And even if they do not it does not matter, it is a fine hairstyle all the same.
