Here at the barbershop we have seen the mullet making a real comeback in recent times. One of the things that makes the style so special is that it is so versatile. There are endless possibilities with how it can be worn and everyone seems to own their own special version of it.


The team has been crafting many modern takes on the old classic and there is some real popularity growing around the zero fade styles. There are also a lot of traditionalist starting to come in and get themselves trimmed up and ready for this years Mulletfest event.


Mulletfest is a celebration of the unique ‘mullet’ hair style and the fun-loving atmosphere that goes with it. In the 2018 inaugural year they ended up with over 150 entrants and there was a worldwide reaction with media coverage that spanned around Australia and to countries including  Russia, The UK and Croatia.


Now entering the third instalment of the event, the contestants will compete across ten different categories for the ultimate title. There are four junior age group categories and for the adults there are six with vintage, grubby, extreme, international, everyday and a special ‘ranga’ category that is just for the red heads.


All the competition entrants are judged on their haircut as well as their overall presentation and stage presence. The person with the “Best Mullet Of Them All” will be crowned the worthy winner on the day and will be taking home that very special and quite unique accolade.


The event is making an impact globally but also doubles up as a fundraiser that supports local charities and those in need here in the local community.

FAQ - HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU VISIT THE BARBERS

June 8, 2020
A man’s hairstyle speaks volumes about their upkeep and character. While some men love to sport the shabby ‘I just walked off the beach look’ and others just strait up look better with a longer hairstyle, the majority of men prefer a traditional, short, sleek and clean haircut.
