Hockey Hair

What does Hockey Hair mean in the sport of Hockey?

Hair that is long, flows and has flipped wings

Hockey hair is a style popular among hockey players, featuring long, mullet-like hair that typically reaches the shoulders. The sides often flip up, mimicking the look of wings, a result of frequent winter hat wearing. This style rose to prominence in the 1970s, a stark contrast to the previously preferred, more polished haircuts.

Interestingly, it’s unknown who first described this hairstyle as ‘hockey hair’. It seems to have just sprung up naturally within the community. Not only hockey enthusiasts but also people who aren’t big on the sport are familiar with this hairstyle, especially in the midwestern regions of the United States.

Highlighting the popularity of this hairstyle, a YouTube channel named ‘Game On! Minnesota’ created a series titled ‘Minnesota State High School All Hockey Hair Team’. These videos showcased the best hockey hair from each tournament throughout the 2010s. Several of these videos have gone viral, attracting millions of views from fans and hair enthusiasts alike.
