    Spring 2005: Blake still holds onto his precious mullet. Look at the fire in his eyes, thinking about his love of this mullet.

    Winter 2005: But then a twist! A trim! The mullshelt (mullet+shelton) is shorter, but still remains intact

    2006: Finally mullet-free! Coincidentally, this happens the same year as he divorces his first wife and starts dating Miranda Lambert.

    2007: Now that he has a new girlfriend, he cleans up a little. The front of his hair doesn't really seem to know what to do, Blake with short hair is like a fawn learning to walk for the first time.

    2008: I can only assume he's having a bad hair day under that hat, which explains this very ill-advised photo op.
