Jai Arrow's Legendary Mullet Is Raising Money For The Leukaemia Foundation

Jai Arrow's Legendary Mullet Is Raising Money For The Leukaemia Foundation

It's the mullet that has its own postcode.

When you see Jai Arrow take to the field for the Gold Coast Titans, you'll see his luscious long hair trailing behind him about two seconds later.

From the way it moves in the wind to it's sharp transition at the front - it's a thing of sheer and utter beauty.

And fans across different sporting codes have heaped praise on the 25-year-old for pulling off such an iconic look.

But now the Titans forward has finally lifted the lid on his 80s throwback cut.

For round 17 in the NRL, Arrow's glorious mullet received a slight touch up, making it even more aggressive than it already was - if that's even possible!

But this isn't a lavish $50 cut from a stylish men's hairdressers or even your standard $10 job from the local barber shop near the train station.

No, Arrow has gone for a way cheaper option than either of those.

"I definitely didn't pay for it," Arrow told ABC Grandstand.

"So Youngy (Arrow's Gold Coast teammate Young Tonumaipea) rates himself as a hairdresser and it's obviously for a good cause, I'm not doing it because I want to do it - I'll just keep telling everyone that. So Youngy butchered me the other day."

But while many would assume that this is just a style preference, there's actually a far more important reason as to why Arrow is pulling off this classic look.

"He (Young Tonumaipea) said 'what do you want' and I said 'I obviously want keep the mullet for the World's Greatest Shave that I'm doing' to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation," Arrow said.

"So he said 'OK I'll fix you up' and all of a sudden he started butchering my hair and I said 'oh well, we're too far in now, you may as well shave it'. So he shaved half of it and left the back so I couldn't do much about it but I'm just going to have to put up with it for another couple of weeks."

The Leukaemia Foundation is something that is very close to the heart of the future Rabbitoh.

It's understood Arrow is raising money for his mother who was diagnosed for Hodgkin's lymphoma.

And incredibly, Arrow and his glorious mullet have already raised over $2500 with a total goal of reaching $5000.
