USA mullet championships

USA mullet championships: Call it a Kentucky Waterfall, a Tennessee Top Hat, or a Missouri Compromise, at the end of the day it’s the same iconic haircut: the mullet.

And now fans of the business in the front, party in the back hairdo have a chance to vote on their favorite styles in this year’s USA Mullet Championship.

Finalists in the kids and teens categories were selected earlier this week, and it’s up to online voters to decide who wins the dubious honor of champion mullet-head before polls close on Friday.

Business in the front, party in the back: Meet finalists of the USA Mullet Championships

According to organizers, the contest has grown from local competition in Michigan in 2020 to a national extravaganza of flamboyant and questionable taste. This year’s participants are supporting the full spectrum of the infamous haircut from patriotic vibes, featuring a shorn-in American flag, to the classier Mozart-Esque flowing curly locks look.

Contestants pay $10 to enter and CBS reports that “all of the donations are going to the Michigan Wig Foundation for kids.” First place winners each take home a whopping $2,500 prize.

For those who are curious and have the time to mull-et over, below are a few of the top finalists. Who do you think deserves to win?

2022 USA Mullet Kids and Teen Division Championships

It’s been two years since young Axel Wenzel started growing his mullet – all because his uncle promised him an IROC-Z Camaro if he would grow it until he turned 16.

Little did the 5-year-old small-town Wisconsin boy know his luscious locks would land him in the national spotlight this week.

From spiky tops to patterns shaved on the sides, homegrown cuts belonging to three dozen minors across the country, including Axel, have made it to the final round of the USA Mullet Championships.

Finalists from 16 states hope to take home the title of best mullet in the nation for their age divisions and a $2,500 cash prize.

“I wanted to donate money,” Axel told USA TODAY on Wednesday, giggling when asked about why he entered the competition.

His mother, 34-year-old Jessica Wenzel, said that if her son wins, he plans to donate money to a homeless shelter near their home and a reptile shelter in their hometown of Brillion, just 25 miles south of Green Bay.

To enter, kids from California to North Carolina and Florida to New York submitted photos of their haircuts to garner enough likes on Facebook to advance to the next round. Contestants submitted front, back, and side images of their mullets, as well as a name for their locks. 

Nearly 700 original entries for the kid’s division were whittled down to the remaining group of 25. Eleven teens are competing in their category, down from 80 contest entrants.

The contest has already been making rounds on social media, with celebrities like J.J. Watt voicing their support for the mullet-laden youngsters.
