Local Kentucky Fair Hosting a Mullet Pagent Open To Anyone
If you're rocking a mullet in 2022 and want to show it off for a cash prize, you are in luck!
I don't know how it happened, but over the past couple of years, the mullet has made a comeback. So many men are proudly displaying the “business in the front, party in the back” look. Perhaps we can credit its resurgence in popularity to Morgan Wallen?
History of the Mullet
You might be surprised to find out that the mullet has been around long before the late 80s and early 90s. Even though that's when the hairstyle's popularity was at its highest, that hairdo has actually been around for centuries. According to History.com:
While literature’s first mullet mention may have come from the ancient Greek poet Homer—in The Iliad, he described the Abantes, a group of spearmen, as wearing “their forelocks cropped, hair grown long at the backs,”—the term “mullet” wasn’t actually coined until 1994, thanks to the Beastie Boys’ song “Mullet Head.” The Oxford English Dictionary credits the hip-hop group as the first to use “mullet” to describe the high-low cut that’s long been described as “business up front and a party in the back.”
The Mullet is Back
It seems like ever since 2020, the mullet has been making a comeback. Men from all over are letting their hair grow out in the back and proudly showing off the "Kentucky Waterfall". That's no knock from me at all. I am actually kind of jealous that my hair won't allow me to have that look. However, if you are one of those guys out there that has been growing their hair out to rock the mullet, you are in luck. One local Kentucky fair will be hosting an event just for you...with a cash prize!
