Before Miley’s Blonde Bob, Billy Ray Cyrus Had a Pretty Awesome Mullet

By transforming into something between The Robyn and The Skrillex, Miley Cyrus continues to work extra hard to shed her Hannah Montana history and solidify herself as a unique adult and bride-to-be. But she’s not the only one in her family with important hair history. Father Billy Ray made a career out of his achy, breaky mullet, and later, that stubborn piece of stubble below his bottom lip during the family’s collaborative Disney run. Because we’re feeling hairy ourselves, here’s an appreciation of the famed mane, particularly for those who haven’t yet had the chance to revel in its glory.
