2020 has given us several hair trends that we didn’t see coming, and mullets have sparked the most attention. It’s one of those hairstyles people either love or hate, but how did they become so popular after many years out of the spotlight?

Celebrity Approval

No matter how polarizing a certain hairstyle is, most people are willing to embrace it after seeing it on their favorite celebrities. Miley Cyrus is one of the biggest fans of this trend, but Maisie Williams and Rihanna are also among the stars that seem to love it.

Nostalgic Feel

Many beauty and fashion trends from decades ago made a major comeback this year and we welcomed them with open arms. Nostalgia is ruling the world, and that’s one of the reasons why we were ready to accept this haircut that hasn’t been in style for quite some time.

DIY Potential

Mullets emerged during the early days of quarantine when we spent our days binge-watching Tiger King and enjoyed experimenting with our hair. They can look quite messy, even when well-done, and their DIY potential is a part of their charm.
