The kid from Carthage has been growing his hair since COVID started and barbershops were closed. Now is a finalist in the USA Mullet Youth Champion contest.

CARTHAGE, N.C. -- A North Carolina boy's quest to be named the 2022 USA Mullet Youth Champion has landed him in the top 25.

Emmett has been growing his hair since the COVID-19 pandemic began and barbershops were forced to close.

When he finally got a haircut, he decided he wanted a mullet - which meant business in the front, and party in the back!

His mom, Abby Miller, reached out to the WTVD-TV in Raleigh after he made it to the top 100 of the contest.

Voting for the top 25 finalists has not started yet.
