The small Australian town of Kurri Kurri is having a festival to celebrate the mullet haircut. A contest for best cuts will include categories like everyday wear, grubby, kids and women.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A small town in Australia is holding a festival to celebrate the fact that it's people love a good mullet. And why wouldn't you? All business in the front, party in the back, the hairstyle that says, I will not fit into your petty boxes - I'm a man living my best life. The town of Kurri Kurri will honor the best cuts in several categories, including everyday wear, grubby, and mullets for kids and - the often forgotten, but no less bold - ladies' mullet.
