It’s no secret mullets have come full circle, becoming a mainstay in modern barbering circles. Trading the flare of the 80s for texture, tapered lines, and blurry fades a Modern Mullet takes ‘business at the front, party in the back’ to a new place.
Executing a mullet is no easy task, striking the balance of not too long and not too short is a fine walk of the plank. One wrong move and your luscious mop is looking down the barrel of a “quick one blade all over.”
This Modern Mullet from Benjamin Kane of Bonnie & Clyde’s nails the execution and is paired with a mid-length beard while dialling the texture up to 11. The heavy texture on top is helped by the ‘C cup’ blast on the temple, a technique that draws your eye to the height on top and the shape of the beard. Adding a reverse fade to the beard, enhances the overall shape and length that graduates off the chin creating a seamless transition from top to bottom.
Asking your barber to nail this style is one thing, but to pull it off at home you’ll need the tricks of the trade. That’s where Uppercut Deluxe Styling Powder and Beard Balm come in. First step is to get your hair squeaky clean, after a quick shampoo and condition, blow dry ready for styling. If you’re needing extra volume and hold, a quick dab of Uppercut Deluxe Clay in damp hair before blow drying will go a long way.
Next take your Styling Powder and shake it through. Once applied, use your hands to scrunch in texture while pinching and piecing out with your fingertips. Need a stronger hold? Add more powder.
Don’t forget about the crumb catcher, grab some Beard Balm and give it shape. One to two pumps will do the trick, spread through your hands and start by working the product into the hair, using long strokes with your palms to shape the beard.
