Mullet Championships: SWVA boy’s mullet takes him to top 25 in national competition

Virginia News

LEBANON, Va. (WJHL) — Link Prater has spent the last two and a half years watching his mullet grow and flourish, and in October, he’s putting his hairdo to the test.

The 5-year-old is a finalist in the USA Mullet Championship’s Kid’s Division and has the opportunity to bring home $2,500 if he can claim victory. If he wins, Link wishes to donate a portion to a local children’s hospital and then visit Lego Land.

His mother, Emmalee Plotner, told WFXR’s sister station, WJHL, that Link’s haircut of choice was just a spontaneous trim, but Link’s love for the style grew with it.

“We cut his hair into a mullet on a whim,” Plotner said. “We thought it would just be something fun to try. It ended up sticking, and it’s a big part of his personality now.”

Link’s family throws him and his ‘do the annual “Mulletversary” to celebrate another year of rocking a mullet that might just be the best in the country.

Top 25 finals voting will launch from HERE beginning Oct. 5.
