As the mullet makes a comeback - refer to the locks sprouting on the back of Sam Cane and Brodie Retallick's heads - this Southland man is cutting his off. And it's all in the name of charity.

Alex Terry has been growing his "majestic" mullet since March 2014 for the sole purpose of cutting it off for a good cause.

Sharing on his Givealittle page, Terry has decided it's time to chop the mop so he can raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

"At 1pm on November 2, 2018, I will be cutting the mullet off, and raising money to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities," he wrote on the page.

The Southland bloke also explained the heartwarming reason he chose the Ronald McDonald House Charity.

"I have had friends of mine that were quite ill and the Ronald McDonald House helped them and their families an insane amount," he said.

"Also as I am technically still a child I felt donating to a charity that helped children directly would be fitting."

"I would appreciate it greatly if you could help me to raise as much money as possible."

Meanwhile, the All Blacks have started a "mullet movement", led by Sam Cane, Brodie Retallick and Liam Squire, encouraging other team members to be part of the hair trend.

Last month, Cane revealed "the movement" was gaining traction within the team with the recruitment of Beauden and Jordie Barrett.

"We've started to see a bit of a trend that the movement has taken off a wee bit," he said.

"It's exciting that Beauden and Jordie are on board, obviously theirs will take a bit of time, but that's the beauty of the mullet - it doesn't happen overnight."

At the end of September, the All Blacks' "mullet movement" inspired a fan to shear his sheep Boofy a mullet, which went viral after Retallick posted a photo of it online.

Sir David Fagan's son Jack – a gun shearer in his own right – ventured home for a week, before heading to Western Australia for a shearing contract. The current world speed shear titleholder decided Boofy needed a trim, settling on a mullet-style do.

"Jack just came in the door and announced he was going to give Boofy a mullet, like the All Blacks," said David.

However, the men didn't realise how popular the hair 'do on the sheep would become online.

"We didn't expect it to take off like this, with Brodie Retallick himself posting a picture of Boofy."
