PUEBLO, Colorado — In the world of radical hair stylings, Pueblo, Colorado now stands as a shining beacon of all things mullet. On Friday night, 15 mullet-wearing Coloradans took to the stage and appealed to the gathered crowd and assembled judges in a competition to see who had the best do.
“The Mullet Lifestyle resonates with Coloradoans,” said USA Mullet Championships founder Kevin Begola.
The competition served as a qualifier for the USA Mullet Championships. The winner will go on to compete against the top 25 mullets in the nation.
USA Mullet Championships considers itself the nation’s official mullet-ranking authority and determines the best of the business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back hairstyle. Top mullet competitors come from around the region and can participate in the event. Judges will assess multiple categories: adult male, adult female (femullet), teen, and children.
