What Not To Hair

I can never be accused of being less than forthcoming with you guys. I share a lot of myself and I've never shied away from throwing myself under the bus for your entertainment value. It's in that spirit that I'd like to reveal something to you I've never shared before. Yes. You guessed it. Your dreams have been answered. Allow me to introduce you to...my mullet.




Yeah. That's hott with the extra t. And I'm sure no one would blame you if you wanted to throw a third t in there.

Aside: Damn. What the fuck was I thinking? 1991-92 was apparently a weird time for me. Note the extra-large hoop earring too. It's as if I was trying to dress the part of a hockey playing bemulleted pirate...or something. Please don't think less of me.

Dude. Just... Dude. The mullet is very scary.

Posted by: amber at August 2, 2006 06:54 AM

Oh wow. wow, wow, wow.

But back in 91-92, I was so way INTO the hockey mullet. Did you wear Z. Cavaricci pants?

Posted by: Nicole at August 2, 2006 07:12 AM

Ahem . . . a table for two, please? LOL!


Tootles,

What the fuck?

Dude!

Posted by: Allan at August 2, 2006 07:16 AM

Hey, let he who has never had a mullet throw the first stone, I always say.

That is an uber-mullet, dude. It's not even trying to be anything else. Whoo.

Posted by: Contrary at August 2, 2006 07:24 AM

and bangs! if i didn't have an equally bad photo of myself around that time i'd make more fun of you but seriously, we were all on crack in our teens i think.

Posted by: pea at August 2, 2006 07:26 AM

Dude, that look is still alive and well on the heads of many here in Canada. Your youthful self would fit in here just fine.

Posted by: mamatulip at August 2, 2006 07:29 AM

You've gone wrong... But you clearly had attitude.

Posted by: Katherine at August 2, 2006 07:30 AM

I needed a good laugh this morning. Thanks, Chris!

Posted by: Dolly at August 2, 2006 07:43 AM

OMG!!!!!!! I have a picture of my husband that looks JUST LIKE THAT... his Mom gave it to me AFTER we got married...
What was it with guys in the early 90's? Its almost as bad as "Mall Girls" with the koosh balls on the front of their heads (high bangs)

Posted by: Stephanie at August 2, 2006 07:45 AM

Wow, and you had such potential. ;)

Posted by: A.K. at August 2, 2006 07:46 AM

Nice! It looks like you took a lot of time styling it just right that morning for the photo.

My senior portrait from '92 is just as bad, with poufy bangs and a perm. Not that it's a bad picture, just...what were we thinking???

Posted by: Alissa at August 2, 2006 07:48 AM

My Eyes....MY EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Wicked H at August 2, 2006 07:49 AM

Anyone that rips on you for your mullet is a total liar. Everyone had one. Or at least a rat tail. And we all thought they were cool as hell.

But I think we need to draw attention to your PERFECT eyebrows! No teenager has eyebrows that perfect! Were you waxing? Come on, you can tell us. It's only the Internet... who are we gonna tell?

Posted by: RSM at August 2, 2006 07:50 AM

Nice, business in the front, party in the back. I'm speechless, thats just awesome!

Posted by: E at August 2, 2006 07:52 AM

Mullet + tux? Brain cannot comprehend. I thought mullets only went with ripped sleeveless flannel shirts and dirty jeans. And work boots. I guess I was wrong!

We forgive you though. It's been a long time.

Posted by: Liberal Banana at August 2, 2006 08:07 AM

No worries, Chris - I have photos of me at that time with teased bangs so high, a bird could've nested in them and I'd have never known.

Posted by: Emily at August 2, 2006 08:10 AM

#1 - What's up the tux? Was the mullet your prom date b/c it definitely is in a class of its own!! I think "E" said it best - "Business in the front, party in the back". Wow. Just wow. And it looks uber sweet, you must have taken a good amount of time getting it to do that bang stuff in the front. Simply amazing.

Posted by: Michelle at August 2, 2006 08:15 AM

Wow. *gazes in awe* I'm just so amazed that I had to leave another comment. That is something you should defintiely sport at the office. It would take care of that too many meeting crap in no time flat.

Posted by: Michelle at August 2, 2006 08:16 AM

Wow......I mean...it's.......wow.

Posted by: alektra's boy at August 2, 2006 08:22 AM

At least it's not the super-d-duper cool bowl cut that guys had later in the mid-90's... although, hmmm... that's a pretty rockin' mullet. Wow... Did you have the mullet when you met Beth?!?! Because, you're one lucky fella if you did... hehehe

Posted by: Corinne at August 2, 2006 08:28 AM

Oh ... oh man. W.O.W. I just died and went to heaven, I think. Those are some damn pretty eyebrows. And I love the 40-yard stare. Hottt (note the third "T").

Posted by: Fraulein N at August 2, 2006 08:33 AM

gadamn young man!

I can't really judge, because I was recovering from a Wierd Al perm in 1991 . . .

Posted by: Betti at August 2, 2006 08:37 AM

Can't. Stop. Laughing. *deep breath There. I think I'm ok now. ;) Love you too much to judge you by your mullet. Hell I married a man whose mullet in 1991 was stunningly like yours, only with curly hair. *shudder
Thanks for sharing!! Maybe I'll post my 1989 big hair, blue eyeliner wearing self!

Posted by: tulip at August 2, 2006 08:41 AM

i cannot ridicule, because I too once sported a mullet. Granted I was 9 and it was the 80s and my parents still had the most say when it came to what the hairdresser did, but still, there is photographic proof of my mullet days too...

Posted by: suze at August 2, 2006 08:42 AM

Haaaa! Okay, sorry. I shouldn't have laughed. But I do laugh at the picture of my husband from when he had a mullet. But his was spiked on top. It's hillarious. If I ever get my hands on it (it's framed at his grandma's house, otherwise it would be mine) it's so going up on the internet faster than you can say "Business up front, party in the rear".

Posted by: Jessie at August 2, 2006 08:49 AM

I really do not have a comment I just wanted to acknowledge that I saw this picture.

Posted by: Bill at August 2, 2006 08:50 AM

You look like every guy in my brother's graduating class! I mean, my brother even rocked a mini-mullet for a while. If I showed everyone my class picture from that time period, no one would be my friend anymore. Helloooooo awkward puberty phase! Which stayed with me until well into college.

But major props to you for being a brave soul. After careful consideration, I've decided I can still be your friend.

Just don't grow that mullet back.

Posted by: Sparkle Pants at August 2, 2006 08:50 AM

Dude, what bet did you lose to post that ?

Just kidding, what cute kid even with the mullet(just don't ever grow it back).

Posted by: Jenn at August 2, 2006 09:00 AM

We're not laughing AT you...we're laughing WITH you.

Posted by: wordgirl at August 2, 2006 09:04 AM

we're laughing with him? really?? 'cause i am so totally laughing AT him!!!

OMG that was the best laugh i've had all week!

thank you chris, thank you so very, very much *grin*

Posted by: at August 2, 2006 09:08 AM

OMG! Somebody help me! My freaking eyeballs are on fire!

Posted by: MetroDad at August 2, 2006 09:15 AM

Forgive me for laughing so hard at that. But yeah, I had one too... it was temporal insanity.

Posted by: martin at August 2, 2006 09:18 AM

Now I have to find someone new to star in my fantasies...damn you!

Posted by: fauve at August 2, 2006 09:19 AM

Is this in keeping with your neighborhood freaks post????
And I am so laughing over the "business up front, party in the rear" comment - hysterical.

Posted by: Traci at August 2, 2006 09:22 AM

OMG! Thank you. That is classic. Sooooo horrible. Hell, I think you just made my day. ;-)

Posted by: Ginny at August 2, 2006 09:28 AM

Sweet!

I'm guessing you had the accompanying tank top, acid wash jeans, and black reeboks to go along with it.

Posted by: Phil at August 2, 2006 09:28 AM

Whoa. How on earth do I comment on that? How brave you are posting that. I would have ripped it to shreds and flushed it down the oilet!

Posted by: Heather at August 2, 2006 09:29 AM

OK, Toilet - my t isn't working well on my keyboard.

Posted by: Heather at August 2, 2006 09:29 AM

OH MY GOD. That's it. Those are all the words I can muster up to explain this hair.

Posted by: Carrisa at August 2, 2006 09:32 AM

Ha!

...Ok, I'm done.

...Actually, no I'm not.

Ha!

Posted by: Melissa at August 2, 2006 09:54 AM

Oops. Sorry about that double post. Thought I was quick enough. Ok, one more...HA!

Posted by: Melissa at August 2, 2006 09:55 AM

In your defense, the mullet wasn't exactly out of fashion in 1991-1992 so you know, I don't judge. I had big hair in my senior picture along with the brown dress with white polka dots, a la Julia Roberts at a polo match in Pretty Woman. What could we do? It was the style then.

Posted by: donna at August 2, 2006 09:58 AM

Thanks for the chuckle, I really needed it this morning! I've destroyed my own bad hair photos, so I can't share them with the world :)

Posted by: christina at August 2, 2006 10:04 AM

Hee! I believe you mentioned the mullet to me at one point, but to actually see you in your bemulleted glory is priceless.

You are not alone. I did not have a mullet in 1992, but I did have a really short bob that was shaved in the back. Instead of a sexy college girl, which is what I think I was going for, I looked like a boy.

Posted by: bad penguin at August 2, 2006 10:05 AM

Oh my God! O H M Y G O D!!! The hickey on the forehead was funny, but this is fucking hilarious!!!!

Posted by: linda at August 2, 2006 10:06 AM

That was '92? It looks more like a mid 80's Duran Duran thing... The Reflex... flex flex flex flex flex....

Posted by: krystyn at August 2, 2006 10:10 AM

Oh no... high school flashbacks. I think most of us who graduated from high school back then have similar hair disasters lurking in their past. I, for one, had mall bangs.

That is a very hottt mullet, though. Thanks for sharing!

Posted by: Kate the Shrew at August 2, 2006 10:11 AM

Awesome! Love this photo. Can't be any worse than the "wave" hair that most of the girls in my class had.
Do you still wear an earring?
Thanks for sharing.

Posted by: Jamie at August 2, 2006 10:16 AM

Oh. My. God.

I am so grateful not to have a working scanner.

Posted by: Lisa V at August 2, 2006 10:17 AM

I agree! I think Chris may miss the WTF.. :)

At least it was THEN, when it was popular..

My cousin's kid is 10.. poor kid.. his blonde Mullet reaches his butt. We've nicknamed him Joe Dirt.. of course.. :)

Posted by: molly at August 2, 2006 10:22 AM

did you have a rusted out pick-up with no back gate and a dog named bubba? too funny!!! then again i think all of us from that generation sported a mullet for a bit of time. hahaha great pic!

Posted by: nikki at August 2, 2006 10:37 AM

Ugh! Were you and Beth trying to outgross each other with your tales of Past Hairdos?

This wins! This wins! But, I should add, your hair does seem expertly brushed at least. And very shiny and healthy.

Posted by: Jacqueline at August 2, 2006 10:48 AM

he he (done in my very best simpsons voice, of course) that's too funny.

and i have to agree...there are far too many canadian men who still try to get away with this look.

Posted by: ali at August 2, 2006 10:49 AM

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHHAHAHA.

Oh my god, thank you Chris. I needed that laugh.

Posted by: Stacey at August 2, 2006 10:53 AM

Hahaha! I don't know what to say...

Posted by: Ava at August 2, 2006 10:59 AM

Oh come on....don't be modest. Your hair deserves at least 4 extra Ts ;). I think we should all take your lead and post old pictures of ourselves. You can never have enough huge bangs and mullets on the internet, can you?

Posted by: kim at August 2, 2006 11:01 AM

I believe my class picture from 1991/92 involved a spiral perm (including the bangs) and a beflowered jumpsuit with Hammer pants. By comparison, I think yours really is hottt.

Posted by: Julie at August 2, 2006 11:05 AM

OMG? WTF? LMAOROTF


Posted by: Red at August 2, 2006 11:05 AM

It's so nicely styled! Business in the front, Party in the back baby!!!!

Posted by: Christina at August 2, 2006 11:26 AM

It's so nicely styled! Business in the front, Party in the back baby!!!!

Posted by: Christina at August 2, 2006 11:26 AM

ok - I noticed the eyebrows too!! Damn hottt! Hee! That was brave... I think I have buried all of my hair disasters - though most of mine came in law school when I was working 40+ hours/week and doing the law school thing at night so I thought a perm was the solution to carving an hour out of my days. Why didn't anyone tell me I should have fired my salon? Hmm? Some friends.

Posted by: Sue at August 2, 2006 11:27 AM

Oh. Oh my. Wow. That being said...you still look hottt. I would never post a picture of me from 1991-92. Oh lord no way.

Posted by: JuJuBee at August 2, 2006 11:32 AM

One of the theatres I worked for had a mullet photo contest within the staff and actors. MAN that was good stuff. This one would have made the top ten, easy.

Me from 1992? BIG HAIR. So not pretty.

Posted by: Elaine at August 2, 2006 11:35 AM

Is that your senior picture? You wore a TUX in your senior picture?! What were you, some kind of geek or something?

Yeah, the mullet rocks, but I can't get past that tux...

Posted by: mrlady at August 2, 2006 11:36 AM

OK, let me regroup. Whew. Ok.

That is SO AWESOME. I bet you were the prettiest boy in the senior class! So did you use gel or hairspray that day? No wait, I know....Mousse! And as for that earring...ARGH!

That being said, we all have those moments in our past which we wish weren't captured for all enternity, but most of us don't have the balls to post them for the world to see. You rawk!

Posted by: Kate at August 2, 2006 11:44 AM

Now that's what I call a welcome home!

Posted by: Vaguely Urban at August 2, 2006 11:48 AM

seriously...can't. stop. laughing. My stomach hurts now....

Posted by: VirgoJen at August 2, 2006 11:58 AM

bwahahahahaha!!

oh my god... that is priceless. i'm stunned. i don't know what to say. i wonder if i can find a picture of me with my hair feathered. if i can, i'll have to post it on my blog. because i want to give my readers as much joy as you have today.

Posted by: jodi at August 2, 2006 12:14 PM

Awesome! I love it. Classic 91/92!

Makes me think back to the day I got my senior pictures back (Class of 91) and I remember thinking 'Aw, my hair was too flat' and now I look at it and think 'How is 3 inch tall permed (then curled again) hair too flat?'

Posted by: Jody at August 2, 2006 12:23 PM

Adorable!

Posted by: Maribeth at August 2, 2006 12:27 PM

What a brave, brave man you are. :)

Posted by: Zandria at August 2, 2006 12:28 PM

At least you weren't sporting the Flock of Seagulls look...

Posted by: Liz at August 2, 2006 12:35 PM

You are a brave, brave man. I commend you for sharing. I, however, am not nearly brave enough to even know where I've hidden my yearbook photo with the really bad asymmetrical cut from the late '80s. It's actually physically painful even to remember the picture, much less look at it. Ugh.

Posted by: shelley at August 2, 2006 12:39 PM

Oh my God. Just. Oh. Um? Dude. WOW.

Posted by: Noelle at August 2, 2006 12:53 PM

DUDE.

Like.

DUDE!!!!

My entire office is gathering around me now, checking out your mullet.

BTW - Kudos to you. You have some brass balls putting this on the internet, by the way.

Posted by: oakley at August 2, 2006 01:04 PM

I originally read the title as "What Not to NAIR". Entirely different subject matter...hmmmm...

P.S. The mullet? Still enjoying a high level of popularity in Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore. Scary!

Posted by: Amanda at August 2, 2006 01:05 PM

at least you're not requiring us to post our senior pics. OH MY is all I can say. 80's hair, blue eye shadow. Yeah. Thing of it is, in 20 years we'll look back at photos of us now and say, "What were we thinking?!"

Posted by: Amy at August 2, 2006 01:16 PM

Seriously, that mullet looks like it has a spinal cord and a central nervous system. And I also like how the color accentuates the sweep-the-leg-Jhonny expression you have on your face.

2 thumbs up, Chris.

Posted by: melati at August 2, 2006 01:18 PM

no matter what anyone thinks of the style, you are the bravest person I know to even post this photo.

Posted by: pam at August 2, 2006 01:27 PM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Diet. Coke. All. Over. Screen.

Posted by: Amy at August 2, 2006 01:42 PM

Rad!

Posted by: Jessica at August 2, 2006 01:45 PM

Great, I just cleaned my keyboard and now it is covered in soda again.

I would show a pic of myself during my hair days but then I would have to kill everyone who looked at it in order to avoid the embarassment.

Posted by: Jeff A at August 2, 2006 01:52 PM

Holy cow, man. Where did you grow up where this was allowed?

JK. Actually, I've got one in my repetoire as well.

Posted by: Brad at August 2, 2006 02:22 PM

That is AWESOME to say the least.

Posted by: Rengirl at August 2, 2006 02:33 PM

Oh man. Too funny!

A cousin of mine finally cut the back of his mullet about two years ago. They took photos. There was an email that sent to all his friends and family. It was a big thing.

Posted by: Denise at August 2, 2006 02:39 PM

Wow. I remember mullets. I can't really say much, I graduated in '83. Can you say big hair? So, were you doing the sun in to get the blonde look?

CD should be in the mail by the end of the week... hopefully tomorrow. :)

Posted by: Karen at August 2, 2006 02:57 PM

Ohhhh myyyy! I think my retinas are burnt! Just goes to show that men do get better with age.

PS. I think I might get fired for laughing too hard...lol

Posted by: ku nkiko at August 2, 2006 03:45 PM

I can tell by the number of comments that you have completely shocked the shit out of the internet too!!

Kudos to your braveness for posting (and no doubt wearing!) that picture. Those are some killer brows. Were you getting them done?

Posted by: Debbie at August 2, 2006 03:46 PM

Wow, I broke your page.

Posted by: ku nkiko at August 2, 2006 03:46 PM

also? I am so glad there were no mullets at USC that year. that was my senior year and it is mullet free thank God for the preppies!

Posted by: Amy at August 2, 2006 03:58 PM

Chris -

We're sorry too. If I find it - I'll post mine.

Posted by: Greg at August 2, 2006 04:35 PM

ROFLMAO...and yes it's at you.

Of course, by the 90's I was a cool college student and way past the mullet stage...mine was in the early-80's and I permed the back only! Oh yeah, I'm proud! ...not so proud that I'd show you a picture of it, but proud nonetheless.

Posted by: Kelly at August 2, 2006 05:24 PM

The mullet? Very "rad" but I just want to know why you're in a tux.

Posted by: Karen at August 2, 2006 05:25 PM

Oh dear LORD.

You can be forgiven, though. It was the early 90s. We were still reeling from the 80s, wonderful as they were, and 1999 (and the partying like it's) was only a few years away.

Posted by: candace at August 2, 2006 05:27 PM

that is the most perfectly groomed mullet i've ever seen.

that's not just Hottt. that's Rad.

Posted by: Sarcomical at August 2, 2006 05:41 PM


I love you.

Posted by: Pamalamadingdong at August 2, 2006 06:05 PM

Holy shit! I haven't laughed so hard in ages! What were you thinking?? I didn't even realize they still had mullets in the early '90s. I remember that as such a mid-80s thing.

Posted by: Jen at August 2, 2006 06:10 PM

Woho - Look at how many comments there are on your mullet. I just wanted to add mine and a belated Happy Birthday to Mia.

Posted by: Lyn at August 2, 2006 06:32 PM

Oh, my. I trust you've mostly come to your senses, though not entirely or you would have burned the evidence.

Posted by: Caryn at August 2, 2006 07:10 PM

Classic! Thanks for sharing.

Posted by: Milly at August 2, 2006 07:23 PM

Ah man that is so dope! Did you cut if off and leave a tail?

Posted by: Dennis at August 2, 2006 07:26 PM

WOW. How long did it take for you to arrange all those hairs on the top in front so they were *just right*??!??!

And? I think maybe you went to my high school... or at least your hair did.

WOW.

Posted by: ironic1 at August 2, 2006 07:58 PM

OK, I literally laughed out loud when I saw this. The feathering up front is so perfect - it must have taken a bunch of time to get just right!

My senior picture from 1992 is laughable too, don't worry. And the guys in my class? Pretty much the same hair style that you're sporting here.

Posted by: Beth in StL at August 2, 2006 08:15 PM

Mullet :

Also known as Business in the front, Party in the back. May also be called a Tennesee Waterfall. Rarely spotted in the wild, there are several specimens to be found captive in trailer parks.

"Yeehaw! Chris that's the biggest mullet I've ever seen!"
ROCK ON!!! Joe Dirt has nothin on that.

Posted by: Jennifer at August 2, 2006 08:19 PM

I could never think less of you;) In fact, it may sound weird but the mullet is a reminder of a few good years (what seems like forever ago).

I have pictures with my hair standing up three feet. OMG its just scary. I have to see if I can find a few to humiliate myself with ;)

Posted by: Chrissie at August 2, 2006 09:18 PM

First of all, there are 111 comments before me--everything has been said about that hair cut.

Second, I honor you--thank you for sharing that with us all.

I think in Glamour magazine you'd be what they refer to as a fashion "don't"...but hott none-the-less!

Posted by: kristen at August 2, 2006 09:22 PM

why why why did I put off blogging for late evening? Why? (&$(@&#(*&@ I'm mad at myself now. This would have caused my morning to be far more entertaining...now I have so few hours to hit "refresh" and giggle.

p.s. I met my first husband in 91 and he immediately tagged my "giant stick up in the air bangs" with the nickname "Shark Fin". Long live mullets and shark fins!!

Posted by: PoeticaL at August 2, 2006 09:31 PM

Heeeeee heeeeeee heeeeeeeee! It's so perfectly coiffed, too! :)

Posted by: Kristina at August 2, 2006 09:47 PM

Damn, you look so serious. I bet you're wearing a wife beater under that shirt and its dirty?

Posted by: chantel at August 2, 2006 11:32 PM

You look like all my small-town Canadian tight-jeaned hockey-haired boyfriends, but with a certain...je ne sais quois.

Super sweet ride. I hereby like your blog even more.

Posted by: Kristin at August 2, 2006 11:50 PM

Oh. my. lord.

I go away for a while and this is what I return to?!?! Horrors!

I totally dig the manicured eyebrows, by the way. Did your stylist do them too?

LOVE IT!

Posted by: The Straight Poop at August 3, 2006 01:26 AM

I'm back to ask if you could please add that to the lovely display of photos in your banner thingy? It's just too priceless (or "wicked cool") to only display once.

What a sweet sweet mullet.

You should have held a contest to create the best caption for this pic. Could have been quite interesting. heehee.

GODDAMMIT, Chris. Do NOT do that to me while I'm drinking Pepsi.

Posted by: Stephanie at August 3, 2006 03:21 PM

My favorite euphemism for the mullet is "the ape drape."

Posted by: Broad at August 3, 2006 04:51 PM

No f-ing way!!! And, did you put hairspray in it? There's like not a hair out of place!

Seven words....Spiral perm, big bangs, lotta hair spray.

Yep that was me from about 1989 to 1995. Oye.

Now jump to 2006, hair all one length, bangs grown out, hair sorta naturally wavy (go figure), and quite a bit of gray hair (s) mixed in. That is a good pic of you tho...you would have fit right in at my highschool in Idaho.

HAHHAHAHAHA! How did I miss this?!

If it makes you feel better, the first thing I laug...er... noticed was the bangs. BANGS!

HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Half of my graduating class had a mullet. They basically looked like clones of you. I somehow escaped this shameful stage, but I did manage to pair pegged jeans with a cardigan and a turtle neck and go through an entire bottle of Dep gel within a week. Alas...

Sad thing about your pic? In 1992, you were completely normal.

Let me correct my previous comment by saying in 1992 your mullet was completely normal. You probably did not look out of place in your high shcool yearbook (or any high school yearbook back then).

My mom once encouraged me junior year to grow a mullet. I told her no. She said but everyone was doing it. So I rebelled against her by not growing one. I come from a not normal Pakistani family.

Ha! That is an intense mullet.
