Ponderings

June 16, 2007

For some reason I was googling worst mullet ever in an idle three seconds today. Why I ask myself? I don’t bloody know! the other side of my brain shouts. Then I stumbled across an Australian Top Ten of worst hairdo’s of all time as conducted by Braun in a telephone survey for Australian broadsheet The Age. So – please relax and imagine if you can dearly beloved and departed Alan ‘Fluff’ Freeman at the controls and here goes for the Top Ten Worst Ever Hair-Don’ts. Not ‘alf you beautiful lot!

Straight in at Number 10 – it’s the Mohican – you haven’t heard the last of them yet!

Next up at Number 9 – like a fish out of water – that’s a mullet and a half mate – not alf!

Halfway to paradise in a back-combed Bouffant – it’s Number 5 – should be 666 – it’s a fright alright!

Everyone wanted it, grown men lusted after it. A stunner at Number One. Goodnight. Stay tight. All right!

    No, I’m number 9, the fella taking a wiz on the curtains.

    Ha ha. Do you think he keeps his hair in a special mullet-protector-net overnight to maintain that perfect oblong shape in the morning?

    hey hey, now, I had a girl-mullet. and I looked DELISH. <br/>actually it was more like a new romantic-girl mullet thingie. <br/><br/>anyway it was on my head.<br/><br/>if anyone cares, I HAVE THE TRUE AND REAL ANSWER TO THE SACRED ORIGINS OF THE MULLET. really.

  7. First Nations permalink

    ..oo, and i once had a pageboy, but I was about nine and it looked CUTE.<br/><br/>and I still know secret stuff about MULLETS.<br/><br/>yes i do.

  8. I think I’ve mentioned this before…the Phil Spector. I had one for a while…there were a few around… Noel Redding springs to mind. I don’t miss it.

    thank heavens they haven’t tracked my new demiwave down yet!

  10. rockmother permalink

    Or that I can not seem to find any photo’s of my poodle-perm disaster c.1984 from The Alan School of Hairdressing which was situated in a now defunct bit of an underground pedestrian subway leading to Hammersmith Underground Station. It cost me a fiver – and it looked like it has cost me a quid. The ‘trainee’ burnt half of my head by mixing solution at the wrong ratios and then did one side tighter than the other. Hilarious now – suicidally hysterical then – street cred down the pan in one fell swoop!

    Firsty – ooh – I need to know your secret mullet information<br/><br/>Dickley – was it natural or did you bouffe it up of a morning/afternoon?<br/><br/>Pod – I can imagine it – I’m sure it looks fabulous daaaahling! x

  12. I had no control over it at all rm. After a bit of hitchhiking it was almost early dreadlocks.

  13. rockmother permalink
