Call it a Kentucky waterfall, a Tennessee top hat, or a Missouri compromise, ultimately it’s the same iconic haircut: the mullet.

And now business fans front and back have the opportunity to vote for their favorite styles at this year’s USA Mullet Championship.

The finalists in the children’s and teenagers’ categories were selected earlier this week, and it’s up to online voters to decide who will earn the dubious honor of mullet-headed champion before polls close on Friday.

According to organizers, the pageant has grown from a local competition in Michigan in 2020 to a national extravaganza with flamboyant and dodgy taste. This year’s contestants support the full spectrum of the infamous haircut, from patriotic vibes, with a cropped American flag, to the classier look of Mozart’s flowing curly locks.

Contestants pay $10 to participate, and CBS reports that “all donations go to the Michigan Wig Foundation for Children.” First place winners each take home a whopping $2,500 prize.

For those who are curious and have time to think, here are some of the top finalists. Who do you think deserves to win?
