If you've ever wondered what your child might look like with a mullet, then we've got the answer. The USA Kids Mullet Championships are here, and they're everything we need them to be.
The finalists have been announced and it's the ultimate throwback as the mullet hairstyle seems to be making an official comeback with these juniors.
With celebrities including singer Halsey and Stranger Things' Eddie rocking the 80s style haircut with shorter locks on top and a longer 'tail', it's no wonder it's come down to kids too. And these kids are rocking it.
The official Facebook page for the hairstyle competition revealed the 25 finalists before they choose their winner later this year.
The official page said: "Let's give it up for the 2022 Kids Top 25 ! It was a close race at the finish for those last few spots into the finals.
"We will now take a short break before the Final round takes place. Voting will happen on our website (Date-TBD).
"Parents will be contacted this week as well to go over how the finals will work.
"Thanks again to everyone who voted for all these amazing kids! We hope you are having a blast."
Of the 25 finalists, the hairstyles vary from short mullets to curly and longer styles too. And fans of the page have gone wild for the shortlist.
One fan commented: "How to pick one? They're all glorious."
"Every single one of these haircuts is certified bad ass i dont know how anyone could choose just one," said another.
A third wrote: "Any human with a mullet is a winner."
However, some people have taken issues with the competition and even called it 'child abuse'. One commenter wrote: "Somewhere between child abuse and cruel and unusual punishment."
Another echoed their thoughts, adding: "This is child abuse."
However, one fan clapped back, saying it was all in the name fun: "I’m all about making fun of folks and making them feel bad when they deserve it but these are children, they don’t deserve it and they look great. Adults need to shut their traps and let these kids have fun. These are just little guys."
However, the hairstyle competition isn't just a bit of fun — it raises money for charity, too.
The Facebook page revealed the kids and teens competitions have raised $3,500. The page wrote: "We are thrilled to announce that through our 2022 Kids/Teens contest we were able to donate $3,500 to Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan, Inc.
"Our donation was made this morning and we are hopeful that we can make a small difference in some kids!
"We hope that this contest can continue to bring some fun and smiles to everyone and we can give back along the way.
"Thanks everyone who participated so far in 2022. We appreciate It."
