From the front perspective is where the illusion lies, Patricks mullet is not apparent until he turns to the sides.
Barber Carmelo Preiti cut Patrick’s hair during training camp years ago which is now part of the athletes routine.
Preiti showed Kane an old picture of Jaromir Jagr’s mullet which inspired his look and sometimes that’s regularly trimmed this way for maintenance.
A perfect example of a instantly recognisable mullet even from the front view would be the classic 90s Billy Ray Cyrus Hairstyle! Trimmed super short with shoulder length hair.
Here’s where we see the Patrick Kane Mullet get more creative as he has lines shaved in to further compliment his temple fade.
While the traditional mullet has a more straightforward contrast between the short hair in the front and sides with long at the back, the modern mullet follows the same principle but adds subtle detail like the fade or creative lines.
To quote his barber Carmelo Preiti
“These mullets go back way before my time, “It’s not the easiest haircut, But it’s like we say: Business up front, party in the back.”
It may not be easy but it certainly pays off when the hairstyle is the centre focus throughout sports media.
From the back angle we usually see Patrick hair just above shoulder length, he will alternate between this and having his hair cut much shorter.
Whilst he’s been influence by Jaromir he takes the same principles make it his own which is evident by the lines at side and shorter back.
Outside of all aesthetic reasons the shorter back offers a versatile and manageable alternative which is perfect for an athlete.
Less time consuming, allows for easy styles and one the less to focus on during training and game days.

Mullet Maintenance in 3 Steps
1. Regular Trimming
To maintain the distinct shape of a mullet, regular trimming is essential and whilst this can be achieved by yourself we do advise you visit your hair stylist.
If you insist of self-trimming then, Trim the front and sides every 3-4 weeks to maintain a neat appearance. Ensure that the back is well-groomed and free of split ends.
2. Shampoo and Condition
Given the varying lengths of a mullet, it’s important to keep the hair clean and well-conditioned.
Invest in a high quality shampoo thats focused on removing any product build-up, sweat, and oil.
Apply a moisturizing conditioner, especially to the longer sections at the back, to keep the hair soft, manageable, and healthy.
3. Style Appropriately
To enhance the look of your mullet, use styling products that are suitable for your hair type.
You know that wet hair look wrestlers typically do for a defined look? Yeah that’s down to using sprays, gels and sometimes a light pomade to provide hold and texture.
For the longer section at the back, a leave-in conditioner or hair serum can help in managing frizz and adding shine.
Avoid using excessive amounts of styling products; a small amount should be enough to maintain the style without making the hair look greasy.
