I've never seen them here in KY, although some people still proudly wear their mullet

They're a Southern thing from what I gather from this thread. If I lived in South Barolina, then they would probably be called "Barolina Bangs." I think the fact that Bama and Bangs sound similar is the only reason they are called by that name.

Let's just call them "Tellums." The classy man's mullet.

Hehe please take no offense if you actually have a mullet.

I've been in Alabama all of my life and I have never heard of "bama bangs" (except this thread).

I have never heard of "Bama Bangs" either. Then again I don't keep up with hairstyle nonsense. My hair is very short, does it have a name I wonder?

See alot of shaved heads and buzzes here in Lousiiana; not that much long hair. Seldom ever see a mullet anymore. Way back in the woods some the older guys wear long ponytails. Other than that, no. Some of the high school kids have taken to longer hair; some is downright sloppy. Reminds me of the early 70s at times.

Exaggeration seems to be one of your main qualities i've noticed.

Why i've been all over the South, met all kinds of people. But not all southern people are "well groomed" like i pointed out. It's the same everywhere you go my friend.

I'm female, you know that word "lass" means FEMALE or didn't you get proper education at school??? Not likely with that statement you made.


I'd advise you not to step on my toes, us Scottish women do not take kindly to twits like you trying to be smart arses.
