When I wrote about the Top 10 Fashion Mistakes that you should NEVER make, life coach Tim Brownson commented that I forgot the mullet. He said, “The mullet has to be the worst thing ever, there’s no competition in my book.” Tim’s comment inspired this post, so if you like this post, you should thank him, and if you hate this post, you might as well direct your hate email and your hate comments to Tim as well.

The Mohawk is a hairstyle which consists of shaving both sides of the head, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the middle. Mohawks became common in youth punk subcultures in the early 1980s, then gradually spread to mainstream fashion. The hair in the middle is often elaborately shaped:
