Popular Frito-Lay chip Fritos and Floyd's 99 Barbershop are joining hands for a limited-time partnership as they offer free mullet haircuts to fans across the country this month. Once popular among Americans, mullet haircuts are back as a mainstream hairstyle, and the snack brand is offering fans a chance to get one for free.

Available throughout August, the free haircuts can be availed of by booking an appointment with Floyd's 99 Barbershop under the "Free Fritos Flow Fridays" promotion. Fans across the United States can get themselves the mullet look that has even prompted several celebrities, including Paul Mescal and Miley Cyrus, to sport it.

With a limited number of free haircuts available for grabs, fans may have to be quick on their feet to snag a free mullet hairstyle from the acclaimed Floyd's 99 Barbershop.

Introducing the limited-time promotions to fans across the country, Frito-Lay made a press release on August 2, with Tina Mahal, Senior Vice President of Brand Marketing, quoting:

"People express themselves with their hair, and since we're seeing this tremendous resurgence of the mullet hairstyle, we're excited to help people embrace their individuality by making it easier than ever to rock this epic look while enjoying an iconic snack...."

Briefing fans about the resurgence in the popularity of the mullet hairstyle and the limited-time partnership with Frito-Lay, Patrick Butler, Senior Director of Creative and Technical Education at Floyd's Barbershop added:

"Mullets are back! We've been seeing an uptick in the number of customers requesting them, and we want to embrace that. That's why we're so excited to team up with Fritos to help make it the hairstyle of the summer by providing free mullet cuts at all our locations every Friday in August. Because of how in demand this haircut has been, we anticipate appointments booking quickly, so get yours while you can!"

"Free Fritos Flow Fridays" promotion offers 1,000 free haircuts
