NSW's First Mullet Fest Is Bringing Business Up Front, Party In The Back To The Hunter Getty

The time has come, NSW, to celebrate THE hairstyle of the '80s.

Mullet-wearers will descend on Kurri Kurri in the Hunter Valley next weekend for the inaugural Mullet Fest, an event which can only attempt to honour that business up front, party in the back 'do.

Local hairdresser and the brains behind the operation Laura Hawkins explained that the festival would centre around a competition to find the best mullet in five categories: every day mullet, grubby mullet, ranga mullet, ladies mullet and junior mullet.

An overall "best mullet" will then be awarded - although we can't imagine any crown fitting of such a title.

"The mullet scene is very strong here," Hawkins said. "We've already had 50 entries.

"There's such variety. There are the hardcore, tough mullets but also the coiffed, well-cared-for kind."

Hawkins, whose husband boasts a razor-shaved "skullet", is calling for one more thing though.

"I see plenty of lady mullets walking around town but I know they're not signed up," she revealed. 

"I think they're a bit shyer than the proud male mullet."

Ladies, you know what to do.

Mullet Fest will take place at the Chelmsford Hotel on February 24; details here.
