Children of the 805 wrll remember when a bi-level c0iffure equalled cred. lvlullets sadly shed this privileged status in the 905, but when the ultra-hip Beastie Boys explored the phenomenon in Grand Royal magazine, interest stirred; the Inevitable conclu5ion being an entire book devoted to one daft haircut. It’s easy to laugh at the tonsonal atrocities displayed here by Mr Dave BOWie, but beware. Early indicators suggest that mullets are heading right back into vogue. Will you be the first to sport one down your local?
The Mullet: Hairstyle Of The Gods by Barney Hoskyns and Mark Larson is published by Bloomsbury on Thu 9 Dec, priced f 9.99.
