There are not many things that withstand the test of time and you may have thought that mullets are definitely not one of them. But you’re wrong. There’s even an annual festival called "Mulletfest" in Kurri Kurri, Australia dedicated to honoring these hairstyles. London-based photographer Craig Gibson traveled there to photograph the best of the 2020 contestants.

"I'd seen the festival online and researched it by watching various YouTube videos and following hashtags and then I just decided to book a flight and go. The festival seemed quite loud, but I wanted to make something a bit quieter and fashion-based,” the photographer says to Bored Panda.

In his series "Kentucky Waterfalls," he captures some of the faces of the competition of all ages from all over the world. His aim was to capture a more intimate side of the event and its attendees, so he chose to wander around and ask people whether they would like to take an interesting portrait. Here are the best photos that he captured there.

The kid himself is cute, so maybe you'd have a different opinion if this haircut is attached to another face.

Just because you don't agree with a hair style doesn't make it abuse. There real kids being physically and sexually abused in this world.

In Switzerland you can see this unbecoming hairdo in the Valais. The Valais has many farmers that have this horrible haircut, otherwise elsewhere it's extremely rare to be seen in city. It's mainly fashionable in remote parts of this country.

I love mullets. Jousters and bikers and people who wear helmets find them comfy and practical, and guys are sexy with long hair.

Agree with Scagsy about the lack of mullet BUT the photographer reflected in the pupil is pretty remarkable photography!
