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.

ALAS, THESE DAYS HE’S GIVEN IN TO CONVENTION

Adding one of those terrible fedoras, too. Let the hair flow, Billy! We don’t even recognize you anymore!

Luckily, Billy’s children have bravely decided to carry on the family’s great hair tradition. Yes, interesting—for lack of a better word—styles seems to run in the family. Who could forget about older brother Trace?
