How Much Do You Know About The History Of The Mullet?

It’s a hairstyle that’s been around a lot longer than the 1980s.

There are certain styles that come and go and in some cases, we’re more than happy to see them disappear.

I think that’s how many people feel about the mullet, a unique hairstyle that has come and gone several decades ago.

Although the mullet did die out back in the ’80s, at some point, it has made a resurgence over the years. If you live in certain parts of the world, however, you might even think that it never died out in the first place.

The mullet is so famous that people have even gone on “mullet hunts “in order to see how many they can find at a location or event. It’s a lot of fun, but for some people, it’s also a little disturbing.

In 2022, The Mirror ran an article about how the mullet was coming back into fashion. This was also disturbing to some people, who were more than happy to see that fashion die.

It also made some people wonder how long this fashion has been around. Was it something that only got started in the 1980s or does it have a much longer history? A man by the name of Lance Geiger wanted to find out as well.

Lance is The History Guy, and he shares some interesting videos on YouTube on a variety of historical subjects. He did a video on the history of the mullet, and he perhaps surprised us in ways that we never even imagined.

He said that the “business in the front, party in the back” fashion was not something that got started in the 1980s, it has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years.

After springing that news on us, he showed us various examples of the mullet throughout history, from ancient Egypt to medieval times. With each of those, we realize that these trends do come and go, but this one has been around for a very long time.
