We Hope Miley Cyrus Never Gets Rid of Her ’80s Mullet Haircut – It’s Just Too Good
It’s been a little over a year since Miley Cyrus first debuted her modern take on the mullet haircut – and over the holiday weekend, she debuted a more classic iteration of the trend during a July 4 performance at Resorts World Las Vegas.
The dramatic chop practically runs in her family since her dad, Billy Ray, made the look famous during his “Achy Breaky Heart” days. It’s been a couple of decades since the mullet’s heyday, but in the spirit of ’80s nostalgia, more and more celebrities are sporting a “business in the front, party in the back” style. Nine Zero One salon cofounder Riawna Capri previously dubbed this haircut a “chill mullet” or “the chillet” for its laid-back look. “It’s a more modified and more fashion-forward version of the mullet,” she explained. Basically, it’s not quite as divisive as Billy Ray’s original look. “This haircut is for someone who is confident, who steps outside the box, and whose style is on the edgier side,” Capri continued.
Cyrus first shared a glimpse of her shaggy cut on Instagram last year, along with some hints at new music. Fast-forward to today and the music – and mullet – have come full circle. See her transformation for yourself ahead.
