Funny pictures show hilariously bad mullet hairstyles

It was infamously described as ‘business in the front and party in the back’, but on reflection most of us would agree there was nothing to celebrate about the deeply regrettable mullet. 

The long at the back, short at the front hairstyle was a style staple for men, and some brave women, in the 1970s and 80s.

But the hairdo has since become something of a hair ‘don’t’, as these hilarious pictures shared online prove.

One man was so proud of his mullet that he echoed the patterns shaved into his scalp with a lightening bolt design on his chest.

And proving just how popular the look once was, one cringeworthy photo captures an entire family sporting matching mullets.

Below FEMAIL reveals some of the most heinous examples that are enough to dissuade anyone from attempting to spark a revival.
