Style Alert: Introducing The MoMu – Modern Mullet

The mullet is making a comeback on the runways of the world, and fashion leaders have coined the term 'MoMu' to encapsulate this 2017 take on the 80's hairstyle.

The fundamentals of the traditional mullet is that it's business (shorter) at the front and party (longer) at the back, and Aussies used to champion this 'quirky' hairstyle better than almost any country on the planet. While the MoMu might sound like some sort of modern art museum, it's actually the latest trend to grace high fashion runways around the world.

Today we're (thankfully) seeing a much softer incarnation of the mullet than its more dramatic predecessor. By adapting the MoMu to the person's age and face shape, it is fast becoming a style that will work for anyone. It's softer and less angular in 2017, with a much more glamorous, blended and tapered finish than the original.

Despite the increasing popularity of this rock star style, it's still very much considered an edgy look, and something that will work best for a cool evening event rather than your average day to day activity. It's a fun and updated alternative to ponytails and braids, and a great way to keep hair out of your face and still look chic when you're out on the town.

If you're not ready to take the plunge and ask for a MoMu cut at your local hair salon, you can always fake the look by slicking your hair back around the ears with a wet-shine product like and letting the back fly free. Happy Momu-ing!
