The Ever Sexy Girl Mullet
The girl mullet, female mullet, femmullet, whatever you want to call it, is a hairstyle worn by few, mastered by fewer, and attempted by many at the risk of failure.
To wear the femmullet, you need to be okay with that, you need to be okay with the potential of becoming the Icarus of hair. It's not something that just anybody can pull off. In the wrong hands, it can be a travesty, but in the right hands, it can transform your entire lifestyle.
We're not talking about the Joan Jett, pseudo-mullet. While sexy, Jett played it safe with that style. She knew better than to tempt fate by wearing a true femmullet on stage.
No, we're talking about shaved on the sides, long in the back, feathered and short on top female mullets. The real deal, one hundred percent pure.
How do you attain this style? Very carefully. Before you even consider this do, you'll need to be prepared, because the style doesn't look good at all unless coupled with a few accessories: A sleeveless men's t-shirt, tucked in and preferably with some sort of attitude slogan on the front. A pair of tight, acid wash jeans. And finally, a cigarette. If you don't smoke, get some herbal cigarettes and put them in a pack of camels.
Now if you're ready to proceed, you'll want to have a pair of good scissors, some buzz clippers and some styling product like mousse, gel or, preferably, spray. This style looks better the shinier your hair is, so conditioning is a must.
For the first variation, you'll need long hair, and then to trim it to a few inches long, or to your own preference, on the top. From there you can tease it and style it as you please, so long as it stands up on end and the back, the party end, is feathered nicely.
The second variation is the same as the first, but with one incredibly daring difference. You take the clippers, and you trim the sides like a buzz cut. As we said, it's a potentially dangerous variation, and should be done only by the truly brave. If you're even more daring than that, try clipping a saying or image into the side, as well.
