Due to the coronavirus lockdown, Netflix has seen an unprecedented surge in streaming activity and the documentary series Tiger King, starring Joe Exotic has been the undeniable breakout hit of quarantine.

The lockdown has also meant that it’s near impossible to get a haircut, which is why, the mullet, like the one that Joe sports, could be seeing a resurgence, according to one hair brand, Fudge Urban.

According to the brand, history could be repeating itself as many guys will be forced to cut their own hair or get their partners or housemates to get the scissors out.

A statement from the brand said,

“Having previously been one of the most iconic men’s hairstyles back in the 80s, the mullet’s short on the top and long at the back style has had its fair share of jokes.

“The fresh and modern mullet means you don’t need a head full of long hair. With its new even shorter length at the top, this modern-day spin on this vintage style is stylish and sharp. As seen on the runway by Gucci and YSL, it’s high fashion with many celebrities sporting the new look”.

So how do you feel about growing a mullet? We’re not so sure.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
