This is Beth. And it’s finally here… June.

1. The Do—Mullet.

Inspired by, sigh, a few classics:

Mullet Billy Ray Cyrus Mullet Andre-Agassi Mullet David Bowie Mullet Florence Henderson CLOONEY: 1980s HEADSHOT Mullet John Stamos Mullet Patrick Swayze Mullet Scarlett Johansson

And Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett (with mullet, not shag):

2. Music (what was playing at the salon during the doing of the do)—Note: music plays all the time at Bang, I don’t get to pick do-appropriate songs. This week I didn’t even notice the music with all the hair going on.

3. Drink (what I sipped at the salon during the doing of the do)—Note: I do get to choose the do-appropriate drink. This time, PBR. Liz and Gretchen joined and I think at least one of the talented Bang hair doers had some. Cheers!


4. The Theory—You know what they say: business in the front, party in the back. From “To say that the mullet is a hairstyle barely even scratches the surface of the issue. The mullet is a way of life, it is a state of mind, it is every person who wears it.” From “It is the sign of the redneck.”

5. Reactions—Before I disappoint, I have to admit that my mullet is not that short at the top and sides. Monica did it under protest; with her artistry and the help of extensions, the front-to-back ratio is well proportioned. We’ll see if it reads as a mullet.
