Mop-top is a hairstyle often employed by males, with combed-over layers and side-swept fringe. The name comes from the resemblance of the hair to an actual mop.
Origin of mop-top
The slang term "mop-top" originated in the 1960s to describe the hairstyle popularized by The Beatles. At the time, the hairstyle was controversial because of its stark departure from the clean haircuts of the era.
Variations of the mop top
The mop top has spawned several variations, including the trending "wet mop" style that went viral on TikTok in January 2022. The main difference is that the wet mop is messier and wavier.
