Mullet/ toupée: when will it grow out?!?

Friends: can we talk about Trudy's mullet right now? It's really intense. And I'm starting to worry that it will never go away. She'll be 1 year, 3 months in a few days. It's not obvious when she's dry (unless the fur on her back stands up.) . But it's crazy when she's wet. From what I hear, this is supposed to correct itself...? The first couple pics shows it quite well. The other pics are just for the cute/aww factor <3

It might be bunching up in that area if she's cold or excited too....

Perhaps she just a party in the front business in the back kind of gal?

FWIW, My dog looked the same when she was around that age!
