hockeysveis n., the haircut popular in the 80ies – short on top, long at the back – I believe it’s a “mullet” in English. Literally “hockey haircut”, which seems harsh on hockey-players, but it’s amazing how many of them sported (and still sport) that particular style (a misnomer if ever there was one, what’s style got to do with it?).

So, hands up: Who had “hockesveis” at some point? (I know I did, when I was trying to grow my hair long from it being very very short – I was 13).
