While this look might not be for everyone, there’s an easygoing edge and coolness to it that the actor totally rocks.
A modern mullet offers a more subtle, fresh take on the old-school haircut, while still maintaining that iconic length at the back. It’s surprisingly versatile (just check out this curly one on Brodie Townsend) and gives you plenty of room to play around with styling.
Considering the bleached route like Sebastian? Proceed with caution: bleach can leave hair vulnerable to damage and dryness, so book in with a trained stylist and be prepared to give your dyed strands lots of TLC.
Extra intel: adding a purple-tinted shampoo and conditioner to your haircare routine can help to ward off brassiness in bleached hair.
- For Sebastian Quinn’s bleached textured modern mullet, take a photo reference to your appointment and discuss the best approach for both your cut and colour. You may need a separate stylist for the latter.
- A modern mullet tends to mean your hair is shorter at the sides, while the hair at the back is the same length – or slightly longer – than the hair on top. It’s less drastic than an old-school mullet.
- The shorter sides can be achieved via a soft scissor cut, taper or skin fade, depending on the look you’re after.
- You may need regular trims to maintain that streamlined mullet shape, so ask your barber how often to book in.
- Recreate Sebastian Quinn’s modern mullet hairstyle by working some sea salt spray through gently-towel-dried hair.
- Scrunch and ruffle on top and at the back as your hair dries, before warming a pea-sized amount of texturising product – like a wax, clay or powder – between your hands.
- Work the styling product through your hair, using your fingers to create volume, lift and that tousled feel.
- Prioritise caring for bleached hair with moisturising, conditioning products designed for your hair type.
- Keep damage in check by getting regular trims and advice from your stylist; enjoying nourishing hair masks and treatments; and avoiding heat styling where possible.
- Use a heat protection product and a low heat setting if you are blow drying or using a hot styling tool.
