A 10-year-old boy from Plainwell recently competed in the USA Mullet Championship and now that it's over he is going to donate his locks to charity.
"The Mullet Haircut"
The mullet haircut is famously known for the slogan "Business in the Front, Party in the Back."
The hairstyle was first worn by French fashion guru Henri Mollet who invented the style in the early 70s.
Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones famously donned a mullet haircut for most of his career but probably the most famous for sporting the mullet was country singer Billy Ray Cyrus seen in the picture above.
Many people claim it was actor Kiefer Sutherland who along with the rest of the vampire actors in The Lost Boys movie for being the instigator of the mullet style to spread in America in the late 80s.
Even actor Keifer Sutherland won't take credit for creating the mullet craze in the 80s claiming he got the idea from a young singer by the name of Billy Idol who was sporting the mullet long before the movie The Lost Boys came out.
Nonetheless, 50 years later America's love affair with the mullet haircut lives on.
10-Year-Old Michigan Boy to Donate His Mullet Locks to Charity
Emmett Haire from Plainwell, Michigan, is 10 and just came in 15th place in the USA Mullet Championship. According to FOX 17, it took Haire 18 months to grow the mullet and now that the competition is over he will donate his locks to Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan. This is a pretty cool exclamation point to put on the end of a year and half long journey by helping others who do not have hair.
