Mikey’s mom Krystal tells KSN News that her son has had the hairstyle for three years. She mentioned the contest last year, but they missed registration, so they tried again this year. She says the first-place winner will walk away with $1,000 and some Pit Viper sunglasses.

The mullet is a style in which the hair is short in the front, at the sides, and longer in the back. The style was popularized by actors and rock stars in the 1980s.
