CBS Detroit – Some might say a mullet in the wild is an uncommon sight. With celebrities like Billy Ray Cyrus and Kurt Russel once bringing the hairstyle to pop culture, the style is now viewed by many as a throwback to the ’70s and ’80s. However, a Michigan men’s shop is having a contest to prove the mullet in all of its glorious forms still lives on. Bridge Street Exchange is a menswear shop in Fenton that sells men’s apparel and accessories on South Leroy Street has reached the backstretch of finalists for its “Mullet Man Contest”.
The winner of the mullet Man Contest takes home $500. For second place is Suavecito and Detroit Grooming gift pack, and third place gets a Suavecito T-shirt & Swag pack, and a Detroit Grooming product.
The finalists were judged by Uncle Keith from the Machine Shop Concert Lounge in Flint. Bridgestreet Exchange owner, Kevin Begola told MLive that he always sees men with beards and lots of local beard contests. “Then it was like, well, this is really good timing right now because everyone’s letting their hair go,” Begola said. “Even if you didn’t have a mullet going into it, you might have ended up with one.”
According to Begola, they were not short in demand for contestants as some people drove as far away as Gaylord and Columbiaville to enter. The voting phase for the finalists is underway and you can click here, to vote on your favorite.
