A hair style that started in the early 1970's as a result of employers discriminating against long hair. The person would get their hair cut regularly, but keep the back long and tuck it into thier collars to hide it's length. Hence the phrase "business in the front, party in the back". The haircut was first seen worn by Paul McCartney in the early 1970's, but then became extremely popular in the 1980's and 1990's because of MTV videos by U2 and the "Lethal Weapon" movies. The term "mulletthead" was first coined by the actor George Kennedy in the movie "Cool Hand Luke" These people are known to have had (and may still do)have mulletts: Kurt Russell, Bono, Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, Paul McCartney,& Billy Ray Cyrus,
Someone better tell that dude the eighties are over and to cut that mullett.

When a dude or a chick (ckick: often known as a femmullet or a shemullett) has long hair in back and short, often spiked, hair on top.
Mullets are perhaps the best most awesome hairstyles a guy could ever have. Girls, stay away form the shemullett or anything that would even suggest it.
