If there’s one hairstyle that’s guaranteed to bring a smile to the face, it’s the mullet.
The classic “business in the front, party in the back” hairdo was all the rage back in the 1980s when that sort of thing was very much in fashion.
But unlike other styles of its kind, the mullet has lived on, helped by a sub-section of society who insist on sporting this most unique of looks.
Those folk were out in force down in the small town of Kurri Kurri in Australia, which played host to the first ever Mulletfest.
There’s not a whole lot to explain here. Basically, a load of people with mullets got together and handed out a series of awards for the best mullets on show.
It was essentially a bit like the Crufts Dog Shows, except with carefully crafted and consistently crap hairstyles on display in place of shiatzus and well-trained Yorkshire terriers.
A grand total of five awards were up for grabs including best female, best junior, best Ranga (redhead), best “every day” and best male.
Shane Hanrahan (below) took home the latter, beating off stiff competition from a veritable cavalry of mullet-wearing men folk.
The event proved to be a roaring success, with everyone at the event looking very happy with their lush, flowing locks.
In fact, this could be the first of many more Mulletfests to come, so take in these images shared to Instagram and remember where you were the first time this unique festival finally came of age.
