Ah, the mullet! A hairstyle that screams retro but has been making a significant comeback in recent years. While some might remember it as the ‘business in the front, party in the back’ style of the ’80s and ’90s, today’s mullet has evolved to become a fashion-forward choice for the daring gentleman. If you’re intrigued and wish to grow a mullet of your own, House of Handsome is here to guide you through every step.

1. Understand the Mullet

Before diving into the growing process, it’s essential to understand the mullet’s anatomy. Traditionally, a mullet features shorter hair at the front and sides while leaving length at the back.

2. Start with an Even Length

If you’re starting from a very short haircut or a buzz cut, give your hair some time to grow to a uniform length. A minimum length of about 2-3 inches will set the stage for a more balanced mullet.

3. Trim the Front and Sides

As your hair grows, you’ll want to maintain the front and sides by trimming them regularly. Use scissors for a more natural finish or clippers for a sharper look. However, always leave the back untouched to let it grow.

4. Choose Your Mullet Style

Modern mullets have various styles, from the more subtle ‘short mullet’ to the dramatic ‘tail mullet.’ Decide early on what type of mullet you’re aiming for, as it will guide your trimming and styling decisions.

5. Maintenance is Key

As with all hairstyles, maintenance is crucial for a mullet. Visit House of Handsome regularly to keep the front and sides in check, while ensuring the back remains neat and free from split ends.

6. Styling Your Mullet

  • Depending on the look you’re going for, you might want to add some volume or texture to your mullet.
  • For a textured look, use a light pomade or hair wax, working it into the back of your mullet.
  • For a slicked-back style, a hair gel or mousse will provide the shine and hold you need.

7. Embrace the Look

A mullet is more than just a hairstyle; it’s a statement. Own it! Confidence is key when rocking such a distinctive look.
