Blake Shelton is following through on his promise to bring back his famous mullet. Last week, the country star announced his plans to bring back his signature '90s haircut while quarantined with longtime girlfriend and pop star, Gwen Stefani.
Shelton turned to social media on Thursday afternoon (March 26) to share an update with fans on how his mullet is coming along. It looks like Shelton and Stefani decided to take it a step further and add "stripes" to the hairstyle.
"Quarantine mullet update 3/26/2020... @gwenstefani has decided to take it to the next level..Stripes," Shelton wrote on Twitter alongside a clip of Stefani helping show off the growing mullet.
Shelton decided now was a good time to switch up his look since most of his upcoming events have been canceled. "I have an announcement. With basically EVERYTHING I had scheduled being canceled for the foreseeable further [sic] @gwenstefani and I have made a decision together," he previously explained on Twitter. "I am growing my mullet back as a symbol of hope or some s— like that.. Anyway it’s coming back! For real. Stay tuned…"
"Omaha, I’m here in your city with my friends and heroes and am ready to play a show for you, but for all the right reasons — chiefly everyone’s safety and wellbeing — we have to reschedule tonight and the rest of the tour," Shelton said in the statement on social media. "Please take care of yourself and your loved ones. You can bet we’ll see you back here soon!"
