This is Beth. When we started the little hair/blog project I watched this documentary:

Good Hair

So full of amazing facts I can’t begin to describe it, I’ll only recommend it. And although far removed from my mullet month—it did prepare me a bit for the buying of hair. A crazy industry hair trafficking.

Yes, to achieve the faux mullet I used extensions. Mine came from China by way of Sally Beauty Supply on South Broadway.

I may have missed the mark on the mullet, but my hair did get incredibly long. Thanks to Liz for helping pick the right color and Monica for matching my hair so exactly—seen here with my sis:

The hair (yes, it’s real) clips in.


People feel compelled to touch. It’s okay, go ahead. Thanks for the braid JJ!

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.
