THE GREATEST HAIRSTYLES OF ALL TIME.... DID YOU GUESS THE MULLET?
A national online survey from Great Clips has revealed the greatest hairstyles of all time.
Both sexes agreed and most often ranked the following women's styles in the top 3:
1) Medium layers (79%)
2) Long Straight Hair (69%)
3) Bangs (45%)
The following women's styles were ranked as the worst 3:
1) Perm (60%)
2) Feathered (56%)
3) Asymmetrical (54%)
Both sexes agreed and most often ranked the following men's styles in the top 3:
1) Bed Head (72%)
2) Side Part (60%)
3) Hockey Hair (53%)
The following men's styles were ranked as the worst 3:
1) Bowl Cut (63%)
2) Caesar (57%)
3) Faux Hawk (45%)
The study shows that men and women had an average of three to five hairstyles in their lifetime and a lot of them chose their hairstyle based on the shape of their face and maintenance.
More than one out of three people base their hairstyle on what their significant other finds attractive and men are more concerned with that opinion over women.
The survey notes that men find women more attractive with long hair and that both sexes agree that men and women are both taken more seriously with straight hair.

~~ In honor of the late George Jones, Sammy Kershaw released his latest single and music video, "The Route That I Took".
Sammy notes, "George was a major part of my life for many years. He was my friend and mentor and I wrote this song with him in mind a while back and hoped that he one day might record it. I couldn't think of a more appropriate time to put it out. God Bless you, Possum and see you again someday my friend."
"The Route That I Took" is available for download now on iTunes and Amazon.com. A portion of the song's proceeds will go to a to-be-announced charity.

The project by Arkansas State University also includes restoration of a nearby theater and the Dyess Colony administration building. The structures should be ready for visitors in fall of next year.
The home is being renovated to look as it did when the Cash family moved to the Dyess Colony in 1935 in the middle of the Great Depression.
The center has obtained a $500,000 grant for the work, and an annual music festival at ASU helps fund the effort in the northeast Arkansas town. This year's festival is set for Aug. 17 and is to feature country singer Vince Gill.

So with all the artists still planning on coming, we are going to honor George one final time."

~~A restaurant co-owned by Montgomery Gentry singer Eddie Montgomery has closed, without warning.
According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, Eddie Montgomery's Steakhouse in Harrodsburg, Ken. was open for business as usual on Saturday night (May 4). On Sunday, Tracy Nunan — Montgomery's ex-wife and co-owner of the steakhouse — posted the following message on the restaurant's Facebook page:
"I'm grateful for all the hard work you've done and will cherish all the memories made. I pray that everyone finds a new path and your journey is successful. I thank you all for your dedication and apologize for the lack of notice and ask for your understanding, as this was not within my control."
The log restaurant opened in 2009 and threw a huge grand opening celebration in 2010 that featured Montgomery's brother, John Michael Montgomery. In late 2010, Tracy Montgomery filed for divorce from Eddie Montgomery, reportedly serving him with papers as he dined at the steakhouse with their daughter. New management was brought in late last year.
IF MOM'S GOT PAID TO DO MOMMY WORK, THEY'D MAKE A LOT LESS THESE DAYS
If moms earned money for the work they do around the house and with the kids, they'd be getting a pay cut this year.
The take-home pay that a mother would earn for everything from cooking to handling the family finances would total $59,862.
According to Insure.com, that's down from $60,182 in 2012 and $61,436 in 2011.
The drop is because typical wages for some domestic jobs have fallen.
The Mother's Day Index listed 14 jobs that moms might perform, including cooking, driving, cleaning and taking care of the kids, then looked at Bureau of Labor Statistics wage data for those tasks.
** A mom's average work week would be "significantly longer" than 40 hours, although most moms would also agree that parenting requires longer hours than your average desk job. The total didn't include the wages that moms earn for paid work they do outside the home.

~~ "American Idol" runner-up Crystal Bowersox and her husband, musician Brian Walker, are calling it quits.
The couple says, "After two and a half years, we have decided to end our marriage. The friendship and love which brought us together remains strong, and we will continue to support each other in our careers and personal lives. We are hopeful that people will be respectful of our privacy as we face this emotional and challenging time for our family."
The couple tied the knot in front of 60 friends and family members in Chicago in 2010.
While the couple had no children, Bowersox, 27, has a 4-year-old son from a previous relationship.
