Fauxhawk declared “Mullet of the 00s”

The combed mohawk or “fauxhawk” hairstyle, has officially been recognized as “The Mullet of the 00s”. Much like the “business in the front, party in the back” mullet before it, the fauxhawk represents a partial submission to and partial flouting of societal norms, most commonly worn as a sort of half-assed symbolic rebellion against the powers that be. With ever-changing hipster culture currently retro-focused on the fashions of 1978-1983, it is expected that the mullet hairstyle itself will become repopularized as an ironically-appreciated fashion statement by fall of 2009.
