Latkatukka - Hairstyle and Social Networking


In Finland mullet is sometimes called "lätkätukka" (hockey hair) or "tšekkitukka" (Czech hair), the latter a likely reference to Czech-born NHL hockey star Jaromír Jágr, who during his glory years wore a curly mullet long enough to obscure his jersey number. Jágr became so well-known with the style that when he decided to cut it off in 1999, his new haircut actually made headlines.

Latkatukka - Hairstyle and Social Networking

The mullet and its associated lifestyle have been central themes in movies such as Joe Dirt "business in the front party in the back" (2001), and the television show The Mullets (2003–2004).

The mullet remains a moderately popular hairstyle among certain social groups in various countries Spain especially, where it was associated with the Basque independence movement, which claims working-class origin.

The Recommendation:

Joe Dirt has it right: Business in the front (LinkedIn) and party in the back (Facebook - with very tight security setting - limit who can view your profile and posts).

Employers, insurance companies, and business associates are using social media for many different reasons.What is your public social face?
