The only thing more common than mullets in the early 90s were Raiders, UNLV, Michigan and Georgetown snapbacks. Trust me.
Mullets just barely surpassed San Jose Sharks, L.A. Kings and Miami (aka “The U”) Starter caps as the headwear of choice. And if you wore a mullet AND one of the previously mentioned hats, then you were just covering all the bases, I guess.
What I love the most about them is the whole two-hairstyles-for-the-price-of-one element. That’s the kind of bargain my parents would really go for…
Another classic b-boy/beater haircut for the era – shaved on the back and sides, long and gelled on top. Usually gently nestled in a Starter cap featuring primarily either the Bulls, the Raiders, UNLV or Georgetown. Other faves included San José, Miami (the U) and Syracuse. Duke, too, I guess…. but eff Duke, nawimean?
Shit, how could I forget Michigan and UNC? Though it seemed like UNC-mania didn’t rilly get into full-full swing until the early mid-90s. Michigan wuz huge, though. It wuz the Fab Five era, after all. Even timeouts mistakenly called couldn’t dull the fervor for the maize and blue.
This is still early in the 90s – hence the prevalence of mullets. But by the time I graduated, I’ll bet there’s nary a mullet in sight in that yearbook. My own hair vacillated between many common Asian haircuts, usually faded on the back and sides with some gelled shit up front. I’m only gonna draw myself, once, though – every yearbook picture but one I look like a total tool.
