Not everyone is a fan of the mullet haircut. In fact, it often gets mocked. However, those daring souls with the polarizing coif may be having more fun than the rest of us.
According to SWNS Digital, research shows that people who rock mullets enjoy more nights out – an average of five a month, compared to three for non-mullet folks. And that’s just the beginning.
A new survey of 2,000 adults – 500 of whom sport mullets of their own – reveals the top traits of those who proudly wear the “business in the front, party in the back” hairstyle:
- Those with mullets think of themselves as free spirits, somewhat mischievous, and “doing the unexpected.”
- They’re more likely to be fans of spicy food and they think they have a better wardrobe, too.
- The mulleted are less likely to sit down for a game of Monopoly, but twice as likely to suggest a racier game of Truth or Dare.
- Mullet-wearers also describe themselves as “more influential” in their friend groups than pals with more traditional haircuts (66% versus 37%).
- 21% of all respondents claim their hair defines their personality and 22% say they’ve gotten more conservative with their hair as they’ve gotten older.
The poll also identified the best celebrity mullets of all time. Rod Stewart took the top spot. He deserves bonus points for maintaining his mullet since the ’60s. The late David Bowie and Patrick Swayze also made the list, as did two members of the Cyrus family. You can see more who made the cut (pun intended) below.
