10 Wild Skullet Haircuts To Show Off Your Inner Rebel

Skull + mullet = one badass haircut!


10 Slides

So you’re a badass with a devil-may-care attitude and confidence shooting through the roof. Now you’re looking for a hairstyle to go with that tough personality. Enter the skullet!

A portmanteau of the words “skull” and “mullet,” this haircut is as rebellious as they come. Think mullet, but at least 10 times edgier! Like the mullet, the skullet is also characterized by long hair at the back, but while the former has some hair at the top and sides, the latter is completely bald or shaved down in those areas. If you think the mullet is extreme and hard to pull off…well, let’s just say it looks like child’s play compared to this rougher, tougher older bro!

Now if it’s so hard to pull off, what is the point of a skullet? It takes a man with a certain level of confidence (read: extremely high) to rock this haircut. But if you’re out to make a statement and you don’t mind the stares, you couldn’t pick a more standout look!

Dyed Skullet

While a skullet – however you style it – already says a lot about your bold personality, dyeing it a crazy color makes it even more of an eye-catching look. Choosing a bright color like this also plays up the texture and amps up the cool factor!

Skullet With Tattoo

What better way to show off your ink than with this hairstyle? The short length and shaved sides really put the beauty of that head and neck tattoo on full display. Honestly, have you seen a tougher pairing than ink and a super edgy haircut?

Rainbow Skullet

We’ve already shown you an example of a dyed skullet above, but you’re by no means limited to just one color. Why not try literally all the hues of the rainbow? This has got to be one of the most unique and creative ways to rock the style!

Horseshoe Flattop Skullet

Believe it or not, there’s a way to make the skullet a lot more offbeat than it already is. Wear the back extra long, shave the sides, and have your barber finish it off with a horseshoe flattop. This is definitely hard to pull off but you’ll be the most confident-looking guy in the room!

Bald Skullet

This has all the typical characteristics of a basic skullet – a bald top and sides and long hair at the back. But as you can see, even the most basic skullet can’t be called simple. It still takes a lot of guts to pull off!

Long Skullet

When you wear the back extra long, it makes a striking contrast to the shaved sides and top. The result is a super edgy hairstyle that’s guaranteed to grab attention!

Artsy Skullet

Perfect for the creative types, this hairstyle has a lot of cool elements to it. It is dyed pink and purple, the hair at the back is worn in a feathery style, and even the shaved sides are given a dye job and some artsy line designs.

Skullet With Design

When you leave a bit of hair at the top and sides instead of shaving it down completely, you open up a lot of possibilities in terms of designs. Here, a pair of lines are carved across the top and the haircut is finished off with a shape up. The whole look almost has a 3D effect – so cool!

Two-Tone Skullet

There are so many ways to add an extra cool factor to your skullet using color. Here, the long hair at the back is kept natural but that strip of hair at the top is dyed a bright red hue (it looks almost like a bird’s crest). That little detail is definitely the crowning glory of this look!

Long, Straight Skullet

Long, straight hair can be a good starting point for a statement-making skullet. It doesn’t take a lot of styling – just shave the top and sides – but it sure takes a lot of confidence!
