3 Variations on the Mullet

The once-derided mullet is back. And while the cut is known for its “business in the front, party in the back” esthetic, a craft hairdresser knows that the key to making clients happy—especially when it comes to this cut—is having a good understanding of suitability and versatility. Judith Viola, Charli Boell and Margeaux Hamrock take a well-rounded look at the mullet and share their unique approaches to this iconic and sometimes polarizing style.

You will learn:

  • How to craft a mullet with three different sectioning approaches, tools and cutting techniques.
  • How to work wet to dry so you can watch the texture and shape react to the haircut.
  • Ways to cut the mullet with a straight razor.
  • How to cut it by slicing with scissors.
  • How to back-cut or stroke the haircut into shape.

Instructors

Charli Boell

Finding their passion for hair at nine years old, Charli Boell’s first “clients” were local skateboarding kids. After attending both cosmetology and barbering school, Charli (@shrunknheads) became licensed in 2015, and in 2019 formed Hair Punx education team, which was later picked up by Pulp Riot. In 2020, Charli revealed they are transgender, which allowed them to find themselves and a family within the LGBTQIA+ community. Now known for their clipper cuts and on-trend mullets, Charli seeks to empower individuals to break free from the gender binary. Their mullets gained fame when Doja Cat wore a wig on the Grammys red carpet that had been cut by Charli. Today Charli cuts hair from a private studio in Arcadia, California; is proudly affiliated with LYC Naturals, Olaplex and JATAI international; and offers independent education.

Judith Viola

Judith Viola (@judeviola) thrives in an educational environment, whether she is the teacher or student. A #crafthairdresser at heart, she has carved a space in the industry with her recognizable style and constant desire to learn and grow. With deep roots in Toni&Guy Hairdressing, Judith’s work marries precision and personalization. She designs unique looks for the individual, drawing inspiration from personal style with respect to modern nostalgia. Specializing in shorter, textured haircuts, Judith uses a combination of wet and dry cutting techniques to create styles that are both soft and bold. Judith’s personal mission is to align the visual and the technical through the mindful sharing of process. Today she achieves this as the creator of Headparty (@headparty), a movement of hairdressers seeking to connect beauty with thought.

Margeaux Hamrock

Margeaux Hamrock (@margeauxagogo) has been a hairdresser for nearly two decades and is the co-owner of Long Beach, California’s Salon Wire with her brother Chris. She is a clean beauty and sustainability advocate who specializes in razor cutting for effortless, soft and natural hairstyles. An educator who loves to travel the country to offer in-person education, Margeaux has also been a guest educator for Reverie Haircare. When she’s not immersed in hair, Margeaux can be found surfing, practicing meditation and yoga, hanging out with her boyfriend and two dogs, or adding to her Bob Dylan collection.

“I really enjoyed the information but I would have preferred to see each hair cut individually and not jumping back and forth between the three. It made it a little confusing for me”

— MARGARET B.

“Enjoyable. I love 'the spider' grip for styling. So cute, clients will get a kick out of it. I take a lot of online education and in person education. One opportunity for improvement next time we multiple artists at once is just more detail from each or, like a go to head sheet by the camera so that we can map out what's happening on each head. Sadly, I wouldn't be able to duplicate any of these cuts. The main takeaway was like : stylists are different and approach things differently and they're all legitimate and included. I like that idea! But, in addition I want to be able to say : I learned x from Charli and y from Margeaux and z from Judith and now I'm going to practice these different techniques or strategies . And finally, I would want be able to reconfigure the ideas in my own way. Glad to have watched these excellent artists. I appreciate the diversity offered at Hairbrained. Love ya'll!”

— BRETT F.

“Would have been nice to actually see them do the haircut, especially Margeaux. Couldn't get through this video. I may as well just attend a hair show and watch 10 platform artists on the same stage doing different techniques.”

— ELIZABETH P.

“This class is fantastic... such good verbiage and imagery when describing the cuts + great ways to communicate the shapes to our clients. So glad I watched !”

— MARISSA A.

“Loved this! Learned something from each hairdresser. Nerd hair and spider hands. The 3rd dimension! Small hair. Xx”

— ECHO D.

“I loved watching the three cuts come together simultaneously. It emphasized how different artists can use similar yet different techniques to create the looks and showcased the nuances that those subtleties create. I’m a nerd for Jude’s cutting style, but now am happily introduced to two other amazing cutters. Thanks to Hairbrained and the artists who brought this here.”
