Maisie Williams Just Got A Mullet
Marc Gordon - September 28, 2020


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

It has been quite a wild ride of a year! From the coronavirus pandemic to the excitement in Hollywood with all the celebrity pregnancies, there is a lot going on. To get through these crazy times, we need to be brave, courageous, and strong! Maybe that is why ever since last year the mullet has been making a steady comeback. The hairstyle isn’t a trend anyone saw coming back (like, ever) but, hey, it’s 2020 and anything is possible! On Monday, the Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams visited London-based hair salon Bleach London for a dramatic cut and color. The star left with a dark blond mullet. Honestly, if anyone could pull off the look, it’s Maisie Williams. To give us a look at the fresh cut and color, Bleach London posted two photos of Williams’s new style on Instagram captioned, “Mullet for My Valentine, Colour and cut for @maisie_williams by @freddie.yeah,” which Williams replied saying, “dreams rly do come true.” Yes, girl!

Williams’s modern mullet just reaches her shoulders with a lot of choppy layers throughout the middle lengths and ends. Of course, the mullet needs epic bangs! Her bangs are parted in the middle and have choppy layers to give it an edgy feel we love. As for the color, Williams chose a sandy blond shade with dark brunette roots to compliment her new cut. Other celebrities have been rocking the modern mullet as well. Miley Cyrus and Barbie Ferreira are rocking the look. The mullet practically runs in the Cyrus family since her dad, Billy Ray, made the look famous during his “Achy Breaky Heart” days. Nine Zero One salon cofounder Riawna Capri dubbed this haircut a “chill mullet” or “the chillet” for its laid-back look. “It’s a more modified and more fashion-forward version of the mullet,” she explained. “This haircut is for someone who is confident, who steps outside the box, and whose style is on the edgier side,” Capri noted. That pretty much sounds like an on-point definition of Miley Cyrus, doesn’t it?
