This post is part of a weekly series of ‘link-up’ Posts which reflect on life’s journey, old memories and family stories (see below for more info).
I noticed this week that there appears to be a new fashion skirt in town. They’re calling it the Mullet, apparently, in homage to the eponymous and much-maligned 1980s ‘business in the front, party in the back’ hair style (ably demonstrated by Mr Gibson, above).
As an 80s teen myself, I can provide personal testimony on behalf of the many interesting hair and fashion combos which ran as rampant as my hormones back in the day. Personally, I was a Lady Di disciple *ahem*.
But in honour of the hairstyle which was so-good-they-have-named-a-skirt-after-it-30-years-later, I give you my Top 5 awesome and mighty Mullets of all time……
Coming in 5th, Andre Agassi.
Stubbornly clung on to his wisps at the bottom until there was nowt left on the top.
In 4th place, Mr Billy Ray Cyrus.
Possibly realised that his music might sound better with his ears covered.
In 3rd place, the awesome Michael Bolton.
The loss of his locks apparently inspiring his hit record, “How am I supposed to live without you?”
Our Runner Up…. Chris ‘why ay’ Waddle.
Half of infamous footie duo Hoddle and Waddle (you can’t make this stuff up you know)…

And the winner is….. Melanie Griffith!!
Who knew that Melly was a staunch supporter of the Big M?!! Taking the Ginge to epic proportions, here in Working Girl.
