The mullet doesn’t get much love these days—and for good reason.
But there’s one place it has always enjoyed a warm welcome: the world of soccer. In fact, you’ll still spot a surprising number of them on the fields of Brazil this month. (Look no further than tournament favorite Brazilian wunderkind Neymar, who’s sporting the updated Euro-fied version of the haircut that verges on faux-hawk in front, ducktail in back.) Needless to say, if there were ever a group of people who knew how to make an already flamboyant hairdo even more flamboyant, it’s soccer players.
