Since Crystal Lindy's video, where she is giving her hair a trendy mullet makeover, I can't stop thinking about this hairstyle. Mullet is a highly controversial hairstyle, it is both strangely appealing to me and kinda repulsive all at the same time. The only thing I know for sure ‒ mullet haircuts for women don't go away from my mind. And the only way I can put my thoughts together is to literally gather all of my favorite mullets in this blog post. So, in case you needed some mullet inspiration, check out this compilation of cheeky and playful mullet haircuts. Is your hair ready for the change?

Mullet with Short Bangs

Wikipedia describes mullet as a versatile haircut that looks business in the front and side parts, and playful in the back. Usually worn by men, but actively conquered by women in the past few decades. It also describes this haircut style as the only easy option available for those people, who had to cut their own hair at home, due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Apparently, the only parts of the head they can visualize well are the sides and the front. 

Would you give yourself a mullet haircut with short bangs? I think this look is my favorite so far! You may need a hair dryer to achieve this hairstyle, if you are an African American, consider reading this in-depth review of blow dryers for black hair before buying.

Many celebrities went through the mullet hair phase, including Miley Cyrus, Scarlett Johansson, and even Irina Shayk. But, Yolandi knew her mullets like no one ever, she owned this style a long time before the 2020 mullet fever. With her long mullet tail and buzzed sides hairstyle she would be a perfect candidate for the main role in 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie, isn't she? 

Anyways, here is a similar to Yolandi's mullet, which looks like a mohawk, featuring long hair on the back and buzzed sides. Want to look a bit more glammed up for a special occasion?

Mullet with V Bangs and Buzzed Sides

V bangs are my long-time passion. I never dared to make them happen, but always admired those, who can effortlessly rock the sharp like a dagger, perfectly cut bangs. Combined with buzzed sides and longer hair on the back, this hairstyle is an ultimate daring statement and it is so hard to take your eyes off of this look. And what do you think, lovelies, how do you like this mullet haircut?

Shaggy Mullet Haircut

The next mullet variation is my second favorite, it looks like a chunky short bob cut, dearly loved by Demi Lovato and mentioned in my 10 Best Short Hairstyles blog post. Shaggy or chunky mullet has a grunge vibe to it, because of its messy appearance. It is a basic short mullet with short sides and a longer back part but with some extra short layers on the back. I don't know about you, lovelies, but this style and blonde hair color remind me of young Courtney Love.

Mullet Haircut for Curly Hair

Some say that a mullet haircut was made for naturally curly hair. Because of its volume and bounciness, curly hair makes the different layers of the mullet haircut blend seamlessly. Plus, the short hair on the front keeps your natural curls freeze-free, giving you a chance to show them off in their best state. So, if your hair is naturally curly don't miss the chance to rock the mullet look, you'll love it!

Of course, if you don't have naturally curly or don't want to perm your own hair, you could try wigs for women. The wigs could help you achieve any hairstyle."

Casual Mullet Haircut

And, lastly, a few words about this casual mullet haircut for those, who aren't ready for the crazy experiments with their hair. It is kind of an in-between look, which you can also name a 'layered' haircut or wolf cut. A similar effect you can get with some voluminous hd lace wigs if you desire more volume. The layers in this haircut are longer, they are well-balanced and the top layers are usually 'teased' for a voluminous hair finish. Keep your back part even longer and style it with gel for a Kesha-like wet mullet style.
