Style is cyclical, and haircuts like permed mullets that were extremely popular in the 80s and 90s are in trend again. A combination of perm, shorter sides, and longer strands at the back is the highway to a cool and experimental hairstyle that won’t leave you unnoticed! Check out these 30 trendy permed mullet ideas to add stylish retro vibes to your fresh everyday look.
1. Softly Permed Mullet Haircut
Take your mullet to the next level with perms, which add texture to any mid-length haircut. This style is great for men with dark brown or brunette hair, as darker shades usually look more presentable when permed.
2. Long Permed Mullet with Tight Curls
You are very lucky if you have long strands, as you can effortlessly get this magnificent mullet haircut. Those having naturally loose curls can keep the hair texture as it is, but you can also go from surfer waves to tight ringlets to make this style more spectacular!
3. Permed Hair with Temple Fade
The temple fade plays a significant role in this mullet hairstyle, as it adds definition to the permed locks and enhances the contrast of the hair and shaved sides. Looks catchy and unique!
4. Perm Mullet Haircut with Bangs
Permed mullets reflect the nostalgia for the 80s and 90s, and if it’s close to your self-feeling — go for this trendy haircut! It looks fun, catchy, and very stylish!
5. Mullet Perm with Subtle Highlights
This option is a good match for those with naturally curly hair or a desire to get modern beach wave perms. Complement this cut with warm blonde highlights to contrast your black hair, thus making it look more textured and dimensional.
6. Timeless Perm Haircut for Thick Hair
If you don’t want your long thick hair to look bulky, opt for this mullet with a permed back. It will thin out your mane at the crown and accentuate trendy perms. Remember to use a texturizing mousse or spray to define your layers on the top and perms at the back.
7. Natural Blonde Curly Mullet
We love this hairstyle for its magnificent volume, highlighted by the ashy blonde hue. To create these appealing curly textures, you can use medium-sized perm rods. Use some hair oil to make your locks shinier.
8. Long Permed Mullet with Undercut Design
The best thing about perm mullet is that you can match it with other popular styles. For example, this signature mullet look pairs great with an undercut that has quite an extravagant design.
9. Wet-Look Short Perm Mullet
This option looks carefree yet presentable thanks to the shorter permed hair strands. It is suitable for all hair types, so you are free to adopt it for your thin curls. Apply a glossy spray to give your perms this cool, wet look.
10. Natural Perm Mullet with High Fade
The duo of curly hair and mullet can make you look offbeat! To achieve these voluminous curls, simply go to the barber shop and ask for perms. Save this photo as an inspiration for your new style to clarify to the barber what you want.
11. Stylish Shaggy Cut for Permed Hair
Showcase your playful curls with this shaggy cut that’s quite short at the back and longer in front. For better results, use clarifying shampoo and a leave-in conditioner to make your perms look more natural and relaxed. A tip: add a mustache to look funkier.
12. Neat Short Curly Mullet
Those with naturally curly hair can easily get this relaxed look by air drying your layers. However, if your strands are straight or you want to enhance the curl in your naturally wavy texture, a perm will organically match a short mullet cut.

Although a permed mullet haircut seems unusual on its own, you can make it even more creative and eye-catching. Add contrasting highlights to emphasize your kinky bangs and increase the volume and definition of your perm hair.

A great thing about permed mullets is that they work perfectly on locks of different lengths. However, if you have long hair, luck is definitely on your side, as you can experiment with the size of your curls, as well as with the length of your tail.
