The Duane Chapman Long Blonde Mullet Hair Cut
The haircut known as the mullet is short at the front but longer at the back. It is different to the cut known as the rattail. This is where there is a long thin length of hair hence the name rattail. Even though it is more common on men, it is popular with people of both genders and ages. The notion is party at the back and business on the front. People will often mirror famous people like David Bowie to achieve the Duane Chapman mullet hair.
The hairstyle has been around for forty years and began in the nineteen seventies when icons such as David Bowie started the trend. Before this, he would wear his hair long. There is an urban legend that fishermen sported long hair on the back to keep the cold from their neck. That is how the term mullet came about.
Ziggy Stardust aka David Bowie sported a rather bright orange colored mullet. At that time, the shape of the mullet was rather squared. In 1980, styles changed to big and voluminous. Men went a little mad and began spiking their hair and highlighting their hair blonde. One such celebrity that sported this style is Billy Ray Cyrus in the nineties. Numerous people attempted to carry the style off while others simply could not stand it.
In nineteen ninety-five there was an article written in a magazine and it slated the hairstyle pretty badly. This article contained shots of famous people wearing the hairstyle. There was one band in particular where every member of the band had the hairstyle and young people copied him or her.
To this day, numerous people still try to copy the Duane Chapman mullet hairstyle. Another celebrity people want to copy is David Bowie. Then there is still the legendary Billy Ray Cyrus.
