Here’s Joshua, a Mullet Legend

Josh's work introduced new health regulations which meant he had to shave off his beard, so he decided to make the most of it by shaving off his beard, skullet and eyebrows to make a difference for Black Dog Institute. Josh raised over $5,700 for mental health!

"I had my mullet (skullet) for 8 years, I loved it. 

I always looked after my skullet. People thought it was a bad haircut so I always washed it and made it at least look nice. I work at Mcarthur River Mines so I do fly in fly out work. My hair would get so dirty at work that I’d have to wash it three times a day.

I found my fundraiser rewarding because I know what the Black Dog Institute does for people. They have helped out a few people I know. Mental health affects a lot of people on mine sites, being away from their family so much due to the fly in fly out nature of the job."

How to shape your mullet

Step 1
Tell everyone!

Let everyone know why you signed up to Mullets For Mental Health, and that you are shaping it in today!

Step 2
Section into 4 parts

For long hair, section it into 4 ponytails; top, back and sides. Draw a line from the arch of your eyebrow to your hairline. For shorter hair, use clips to hold hair in place.

Step 3
Snip Snip!

Snip the top and side ponytails/ sections, and leave the back (the party).

Step 4
Shave the sides

If you have clippers shape in the sides shaving up towards section 1. If using scissors section the sides into smaller parts with a clip. Hold hair between fingers or with a comb and snip.

Step 5
Trim the top

Clean up the top however you like! You can either shave or just snip this section.
Again segmenting into smaller sections may make it easier and even.

Step 6
Don't touch the back

This is where the party is!!
Let this section flow.

Please be careful when using any sharp appliances. Under 16's make sure you have someone to help you!
