Back on March 17, Blake Shelton announced that since he, like most Americans, was taking the advice to shelter-at-home seriously, he was also going to use the break from road and television to bring his popular mullet back. Now, we’re finally getting an update on his neckwarmer.
“I have an announcement. With basically EVERYTHING I had scheduled being canceled for the foreseeable further @gwenstefani and I have made a decision together. I am growing my mullet back as a symbol of hope or some shit like that.. Anyway it’s coming back! For real. Stay tuned…,” he wrote in the Tweet.

In a new post on Twitter, we can see that it’s just an itty bitty baby mullet, barely covering the back of his neck, but two things that are massively different from his early Kentucky waterfall is the addition of stripes on the side. Blake writes, “Quarantine mullet update 3/26/2020…Gwen Stefani has decided to take it to the next level. Stripes.”
Sure enough, Gwen has cut two rally stripes into the side of her fella’s Tennessee topcoat and in the video you can see her combing his curls with her fingertips.
The other thing that’s quite different from his early bi-level is the color. When country music fans first became aware of Blake Shelton, his hair was a warm chocolatey brown and now there’s a little bit of sparkly silver mixed in. Actually, it’s more than just a little, but it looks quite distinguished.

For many, their first glimpse of Blake’s mullet, was the music video for his debut hit single, “Austin.”
In the 2005 video for “Nobody But Me,” it was obvious that Blake was starting to shear his mop a little shorter.
Three years later, Blake’s head of thick hair was starting to look more like what we see now as you can see in the video for “Home.”
The length may change and the color may change, but the one thing we can count on is all of those great curls.
