I think the first sentence sounds more natural in English but I'm not sure because I'm not a native English speaker.
Which sentence is correct?
You don't remember them, vel?I don't know how far in the past that was, but it must have passed me by because I had no idea what a "mullet" might be, apart from the fish of course. I may not be the only one, so I think it's best to keep "haircut" in the equation.
I like Ylr's first suggestion best- or maybe in the plural: "...lots of men had/used to have mullet haircuts".
There's no need to mention 'hair' or 'head', vel, because those of us in the know would not automatically think "fish - large tank- living room" or "fish - fridge - dinner tonight".OK guys, I accept that I may be the only person in the English-speaking world to have never heard of this hairstyle, but the proposed version: In the past many/[a lot of] guys had a mullet doesn't actually mention HAIR or HEAD.
I rather think not. You are not alone, veli. I would never (until very recently (*)) have associated the word mullet with a haircut. Men in the 1970s just had long hair, it didn't (as far as I was aware) have a name.most of us would assume this is what it meant
