Patrick Kane’s playoff mullet is unlikely to catch on in Vancouver, some of the city’s hair experts said yesterday.
They added that’s a good thing.
The Chicago Blackhawks forward has been sporting a playoff mullet instead of a playoff beard.
Chris Funk, style director of Blow Dry Bar salon in Yaletown, said that the Euro mullet — a type of faux mullet where the hair is just slightly longer in the back — is becoming a more popular request in Vancouver salons, but Kane’s trashy mane is just too much to handle.
“The mullet has to be understated. It’s a case of less is more,” said Funk.
Ludovic Jan, owner of Opus Salon, said his clients aren’t interested. He said Kane’s hairstyle is a good look, “except for the cabbage at the back.”
Mullets, also known as hockey hair, have been worn by some of the NHL’s biggest stars, notably Jaromir Jagr and Mario Lemieux in the ’90s.
