It's perhaps rugby league's most famous haircut and Wests Tigers powerhouse winger Mahe Fonua promises it's not being clipped anytime soon.
In his first game back in the NRL following a two-year English Super League hiatus, Fonua set social media alight on Sunday with his short-on-the-sides-and-top and long-at-the-back do.
Fonua's cut defies comparison and even he was somewhat at a loss to explain the inspiration behind the hairstyle which is part buzzcut and part mullet.
"What I feel like, I do," the 25-year-old said.
"I'm not too fussed about what people say and there's a little bit of banter going around about my haircut.
"I'm me and I don't really care about what anyone else thinks.
"I do what makes me happy and my hair makes me happy."
Fonua said despite presumptions to the contrary, his haircut was carefully cultivated and well-maintained.
Each week teammates Esan Masters and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak bring in a barber for a touch-up and he said he usually joined them.
"If I had a dollar for everytime someone said 'cut the back off', I'd probably be a millionaire," Fonua said.
"Every time I sit down in that barber's chair they say 'cut the back off'."
Following a bulldozing effort against the Eels, Fonua once again gets an opportunity to shine in Saturday's clash with the Warriors in Auckland.
After being a part of the Storm set up from 2012-15, he went to the Super League in 2016 in search of opportunities.
He proved a standout in England, helping Hull FC to back-to-back Challenge Cup title wins and earning selection in the 2016 Dream Team.
Granted a second opportunity at an NRL career, he said he wanted to embrace the lifeline given to him by Ivan Cleary.
"I'm pretty pleased to finally get a chance with my new club," Fonua said.
"After the game I said it's been eight weeks in the making and I'm happy to get my call up.
"It's been a couple of years since I last played in the NRL and it's good to get the lungs used to it again and the nerves out of the way."
