From Then To Now: All The Times Celebrities Have Rocked The Mullet Hairstyle

Demi Lovato is the latest to give the trend her seal of approval.

As far as hairstyles go, there are none as contentious as that of the mullet. But over the years plenty of Hollywood stars have proved time and time again that the shorter-in-the-front, longer-in-the-back hairstyle can actually prove to be both chic and on-trend. And surprisingly, the cut once reserved for country crooners and awkward family photos from the ’80s is having a major resurgence among modern tastemakers. 

And if 2020 proved anything, it’s that the mullet is officially back with a vengeance. Below, we’ve rounded up all the times celebrities have turned to the shaggy, layered style–from Joan Jett’s iconic black rocker ‘do to Zenday’s tweet-provoking 2016 Grammys mullet. But be warned, it might inspire a post-lockdown switch-up.
