Forget Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the Friends get-together part, and the return of low-waist jeans… With unexpected returns in 2021, we have another guest from the 20th century: mullet hairpieces. Think Jane Fonda’s hair in the ’70s or Patrick Swayze’s hair in the ’80s. In the early 2000s, Rihanna also tried mullet hair, which is one of the indispensable hair parts of the punk rock era. Miley Cyrus joined Rihanna, who returned to her mullet hair exactly this year.
Mullet hair parts, which became known among the celebrities in quarantine and adopted by everyone during the exit period of quarantine, became the most sought-after hairstyle on the internet last year. With 15.5 million searches, mullet searches increased 142%, proving how recognizable this style is! This hair style, which has a layered cut at the front and a real tail at the back, is in the middle of all ‘cool’ girls.
The mullet hair part, which signaled that it was about to be recognized last March, covered our entire Instagram page in a short time. While the 70’s hairstyles were emphasized with Farrah Fawcett’s fluffy wavy hair, the place of the mullet style in the middle of hair trends was evident. This hair part, which looks multi-layered and messy, is in the middle of the models recommended for fine hair. The mullet hair section, which makes your hair look heavier, at the same time turns you into a rock star.

Especially in the 70s and 80s, male punk and rock stars preferred mullet hair parts, which began to be tried by female celebrities in the early 2000s. We can say that this hair section, which is now on the rise again, is in the middle of this year’s sideburns without hesitation. The key to this style, which can be tried by those who like a little more rebellious and different styles, is a layered and short cut at the front and a longer style at the back. Mullet hair, which can be styled in an effortless form, seems to be in our lives for a while.

The 2021 version of the mullet hair part, which offers two different looks in a single hairstyle, looks more layered. We have to say that this style, which increases self-confidence and is tried by Rihannas and Mileys around the world, is a little outside of the comfort zone.
