Nothing symbolises the spirit of American liberty more than the almighty mullet.

The hairstyle instantly conjures up images of rocking out to some Lynyrd Skynyrd, shooting a gun, and riding a four-wheeler through the desert – possibly all at the same time.

It also played a part in the punk scene of the 1970s and lesbian culture in the 1980s – an ultimate symbol of rebellion and self-expression.

Known for the expression ‘business up front, party in the back’, the mullet really encapsulates the duality of man.

The style has made somewhat of a comeback in recent years, with plenty of celebs and trendy young Londoners and New Yorkers getting in on the action.

But in many communities, the mullet never went away, and there’s a whole new generation of young children already carrying on its legacy.

Voting is underway for the children’s division of the annual USA Mullet Championships, which has been running since 2020.

The race has been whittled down to 25 contestants, and voting closes tomorrow, so cast your vote while you still can.

Initially set up by Michigan men’s clothing store Bridge Street Exchange as a marketing idea, it has since grown into a national event.

The contest describes itself as ‘the nation’s official mullet-ranking authority’ and ‘a powerful platform within the mullet space’.

Among this year’s child contestants is a boy named Jameson, from Delaware, Ohio, sporting spiked up hair on top and a killer pair of riding shades.

There’s a lad from Duncan, Oklahoma named Landry with an American flag shaved on the side of his head for added patriotism.

We couldn’t leave out a boy named Epic Orta, from La Joya, Texas (if there is anyone else in the world with that name, we’d love to hear from you).

‘Epic just exudes mullet energy and if I was told his hair grew like that naturally I would 100% believe it. He’s like the reincarnation of Dog the Bounty Hunter,’ one fan wrote.

But he will have some tough competition from Rustin Alphin, from Pocahontas, Arizona, who is among the longer hair contestants and already looks like he belongs in a hair metal band.

‘Rustin has a perfect mullet no doubt, but Epic is exuding pure mullet energy from his very being,’ wrote one spectator.

‘Mullets are 50% style and 60% attitude and Epic is the mullet personified. I mean he has two pairs of gas station sun glasses.’

Earlier this year, the competition joined forces with Major League Eating, the people behind Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – another extremely American competition.

‘MLE’s experience building a sponsorship-driven live-event brand will help support the rapid growth of the competitive mullet world,’ organisers said.

Major League Eating Chair George Shea added: ‘The mullet is more than a hairstyle – the mullet is a lifestyle.

‘We believe that the USA Mullet Championships is a cultural phenomenon that lies at the core of the American experience and we are excited to help showcase the platform to new fans and sponsors alike.’

The Mullet Championships also includes teenager, adult male and adult female (femullet) categories.

Registrations for the adult competitions don’t close until August 31, so feel free to sign up if you think you have what it takes.

First place winners will take home $2,500, while second and third prize will receive a Mullet Champs gift set.

Delivering a potted history of the mullet on its website, the championship says the peak of the hair-do ‘ended in the early 1990’s’ but ‘never completely faded from relevance’.

‘Instead, it slipped from the good graces of the masses and became iconic in various subcultures: everyone from country music stars and lesbians, to hockey players and Native Americans.’

Jennifer Arnold even made a documentary about the haircut in 2002 titled American Mullet, which is available on Amazon Prime.

The website tells how the mullet was banned in Iran for being considered too much of a ‘western hairstyle’, and North Korea is also cracking down on the bodacious barnets.

It adds: ‘No matter what you think of it, the mullet has become enough of a staple of the American aesthetic.’
