Sophisticate’s Blog:             The Mod Mullet

We’ve seen sexy style trendsetter Rihanna rocking a mullet-inspired coif, and now it’s taking the hair scene by storm. The Marc Jacobs Fall 2013/14 runway show featured this edgy style that, Joi Rooks, KMS California Artistic Team Member and owner of Fresche Salon in Atlanta, GA, calls the mod mullet. Get all the details on this rock-star ready style right here!

“This fall, I’m loving the mod mullet – it’s super easy to maintain and it’s really chic,” Joi says. “The back is slighter longer than the sides like a mullet, but the styling makes it fresh and modern.”

With medium or longer length hair, determine the length of the perimeter first buy razor cutting the edges to create a shaggy lived in feel and piecey texture – remember to cut an oval shape shorter around the fringe/front area and angle the sides and back to be longer. Then, find a starting guide by choosing a facial feature like the tip of the nose and cut horizontal layers throughout the entire head – this will create a chunky layered top for the mod mullet with shaggy textured edges.  The dual textures are what make the look modern.

Work KMS California HairPlay messing creme through towel-dried hair and air or blow-dry for fullness and chunky texture – the grip creates a lived-in, unkempt sexy style with modern movement.

“Fashion Week is so inspirational for hairdressers, whether you’re back stage doing the hair or watching from the sidelines, a creative frenzy that inspires us to look at new trends and ways of doing things,” says Patrick McIvor, Artistic & TechniCulture Director for Goldwell and KMS California and social media mentor. “It’s like a bi-annual check in to make sure we’re on our toes…love it!”
