GOT YOUR ATTENTION, HUH?
You’re probably scratching your head and scrolling down to view pics that you’re thinking will resemble Joe Dirt. …And now scrolling back up to try to make sense of this post. Isn’t the word “mullet” scary?
Be that as it may, my haircut is in fact a version of “The Modern Mullet”. I KNOW! WHY would anyone even bring back such a word? We all know that history repeats. Hopefully, with improvements.
Before you view these pics (which are self-pics with the exception of one) keep in mind that I don’t exactly use the word “mullet” when discussing my haircut. With the exception of the Works For Me Wednesday Carnival, of course.
My wonderful hairstylist and friend, Suzonne, was recently given free reign over my hair. I ended up with what I like to call “The Rod Stewart” look. That’s about how I’d sum it up. A crazy, rocked-out, Rod Stewart look. Also keep in mind that this “do” works best with lots of teasing and volume of which I had little today. I’m so prepared.
This website (enter if you dare…but beware of extreme styles and bad spelling) states, “The Modern Mullet is cut short and at an angle in the front. It also has the appearance of multiple layers, long in the back and shaggy…”
Okay…the first three pictures are obviously taken by yours truly. AND, I might add, on a not-so-great hair day. This haircut begs for lots and LOTS of teasing which I don’t mind AT ALL! Yes, you heard right…I am actually welcoming big hair. Guess I miss the ’80s. IMPROVED big hair, of course. The last pic was taken by Joe (Joedaddy, NOT Joe Dirt 😉 ) while I was none the wiser. The hair was a little fuller and of course would have made for a great full shot picture for this post. Buuuuttt, instead, I did my best to pull off those first few on a day that I did not wash my hair. GASP. Not something that I can get away with, people. But I had a sick kid today. Didn’t you read my last post?
There you have it. This post might not have been pulled together enough to do the “do” justice. You may be laughing. You may be thinking I should’ve saved this for a Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You post. Or maybe you’re still horrified over the word mullet.
If you view the aforementioned website, you probably noticed that this cut can be very edgy. Mine, not so much. At least I don’t think so. Hopefully you’ve learned something. If so, leave a comment.
