KURRI KURRI, AUSTRALIA - FEBRUARY 29: Participant Aaron Styles poses for a photograph during Mulletfest 2020 at the Chelmsford Hotel on February 29, 2020 in Kurri Kurri, Australia. Mulletfest is an annual competition that celebrates the well-known and infamous hair-style while helping support local charities. The best mullet cuts are judged in various styles and categories, including 'everyday', 'grubby', 'ranga' (red hair), 'vintage', 'extreme', 'international' and 'junior'. All entrants are judged on their haircut, overall presentation and stage presence, and the person with the "Best Mullet of them All" is crowned on the day. The mullet is a hairstyle in which the hair is cut short at the front and sides, but left long at the back. (Photo by Sam Mooy/Getty Images)

A new record for the world’s largest mullet has been set!

The new record holder’s name is Tami Manis of Knoxville, TN, and if you can believe she’s been growing her mullet out for the last 33 years.  Guinness World Records found out about a competition she was in recently where her record-length mullet was recorded.  They sent her a certificate to make it an official world record.  In 2002, Tami competed in a USA Mullet Championship and her mullet was recorded at 5 feet 8 inches.

Her division was called the “Femullet” division and somehow she placed second.  Since the record-setting length was recorded last year this means that her mullet is probably longer today.

This all began back in the 80s for Tami.  She kept her mullett for most of the decade until one day when she decided it was “Last Call” for the part in the back.

In 1989 she cut it off and Tami told GWR that it was the biggest mistake she ever made.  She said she missed it immediately.  By February of 1990, she started growing it back and hasn’t cut the length since.

If you look at the post about Tami below, you’ll notice that she isn’t very tall.

Does her hair ever glide across the ground when she walks?  How long does it take her to get ready in the morning?  Also, can this work as a blanket too?  I applaud Tami for her achievement and her 33-year-long dedication to keep growing out her mullet.

My favorite mullets used to be Billy Ray Cyrus, Joe Dirt, and Morgan Wallen before he shaved his off.  Neither of them holds a candle to Tami Manis of Knoxville, Tenessee. A new record for the world’s largest mullet belongs to her.
