Although you can observe mullets in various forms all over the world, only the Australian mullet, or the 4'n'20 as it has been affectionately renamed, crosses all social barriers and class divides. The American mullet (Amerimullet) for example is a working class do and the Tongan mullet is a royal haircut. The 4'n'20 on the other hand can be been seen on the likes of movie stars, politicians and mechanics alike. Here are some pictures and terms for the Great Australian Haircut.
