I find it very interesting how cyclical trends can be. You know what I mean, right? A trend becomes popular, and everyone jumps on board - that trend lasts however long, and then next thing you know, that same trend is suddenly unpopular. Just give it a few decades because, for whatever reason, that trend will most likely become popular again. Some examples of recurring trends that I've seen come and go and come again are bell-bottom pants, high-waisted pants (mom jeans), tight clothes, baggy clothes, popped collars, and up top - the mullet.

Business Up Front, Party in the Back

I can't believe this hairstyle was ever popular back in the day, and I certainly don't understand why it's popular again. Like it or not, it seems to be here to stay - the fact that I'm writing this article is proof.

One Mullet to Rule Them All

Sorry for the Tolkien reference, I'm a Lord of the Rings nerd. One of the most interesting events at the 2022 Indiana State Fair is the USA Mullet Championship. Actually, it is a qualifying event for the nationwide mullet competition. It's a two-part contest that starts with online registration and submitting pictures of your mullet. Judges will then choose finalists for the live portion of the contest taking place at the fair.
