There's a good reason you might be noticing a sudden influx of mullets walking around the Windy City these days.

When the Chicago Blackhawks' Patrick Kane continued his playoff tradition of getting his hair shaved into a mullet-inspired cut -- complete with the requisite racing stripes shaved into the side -- last month, it wasn't long before others followed suit.

Carmelo Preiti, general manager and barber at the 316 Club in Chicago, is responsible for Kane's signature cut and told WGN this week that between 20 and 30 people -- from adults to small children -- have come into his shop to get the Kane mullet since the playoffs began. He told the National Post he's noticed other mullets being sported at United Center games, proving he's not the only barber in town who's getting the request.

"It’s become a regular thing," Preiti said.

Among the latest adopters of the Kane mullet is teammate Brandon Saad, who also went to Preiti to get a playoff mullet for the second consecutive year.

The Hawks have won the Stanley Cup two of the three previous times Kane has sported the mullet. They will face off with the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Here is the 2014 edition of the Kane mullet in all its glory:
