Best Hair - Beavis Or Butt-head?

Are you a fan of Bevis and Butt-head?  If so you know that they are famous for a wide range of antics as well as their trademark big hair.  Bevis has brunette hair which is sometimes not coiffed as big as Butt-head's blonde helmet.

It's unlikely, based on their characters, that either of the teens spend any time creating their hairstyles and they just form based on their natural texture.  Either they have very thick hair which naturally billows up and out or they don't wash their hair.

Ultimately the teens either have bad bed head or consciously work hair dryers to get their big pompadour style hairstyles.

If you had to choose which hair would you vote as the best?  Personally I would select Butt-head because of his vibrant blonde hair which seems to fit his personality best.

What Is Beavis & Butt-head

Beavis and Butt-head is a famous animated television series created by Mike Judge and co-starring two unique teens from Highland, Texas.  It has a cult following around the world.

The series originated from Frog Baseball, a 1992 short film by Judge. After seeing the short, MTV signed Judge to develop the concept. Beavis and Butt-head originally aired from March 8, 1993 to November 28, 1997.  It was revived in 2011 and began airing on MTV on October 27th.  The popular show has been a source of controversy as the show has been claimed to promote dangerous behavior.

Reference to Beavis & Butt-Head In Movies

In 1996, the series was adapted into the animated feature film Beavis and Butt-head Do America.  References to Beavis & Butt-Head have appeared in over 100 different major films including Knotting Hill starring Hugh Grant as William Thacker.

In the film Thacker was trying to uncover the secret name of movie star Anna Scott played by Julia Roberts.  At one point he guessed Beavis or Butt-Head.  Of course it was the wrong name, but it was funny.

Hatred For Hair Bands

Beavis and Butt-Head are socially awkward, rock/metal-loving delinquents who are undereducated, barely literate, dim-witter and with an obvious lack of empathy or moral scruples.  Their most common shared activity is watching music videos or being involved in a variety of schemes.

It's ironic with their wild hairstyles that they are extremely vocal in their hatred for generic 1980s "hair bands" since in some ways their hair spirals out of control like some of the bands they detest.

Bands who received considerably large amounts of criticism during the tenure of the show included Poison and Grim Reaper.

Beavis And Butt-Head Exhibit

According to, Beavis and Butt-head are making a rather disturbing appearance in Santa Monica this month as part of "Conjoined II," an exhibition at Copro Gallery.

Featuring "more classic sculptures, lifelike models, surreal assemblages, mixed media paintings, life sized toys and other conjoined works in 3-D,"  the exhibit includes two sculptures of the animated duo created by special makeup effects artist Kevin Kirkpatrick.

Special Hair For Lifelike Molds

The teenage delinquents are humanized in Kirkpatrick's works, making it hard to look at and even harder to look away. Several photos of the sculptures can be seen on Kirkpatrick's Facebook page, where he writes, "Just finished these fellas for the Conjoined 2 Art Show. It was like a little boot camp. I started from scratch 2 and a half weeks ago. I'm very tired, but very happy. Special thanks to Nicole Michaud for the beautiful hairwork, and Jason James for help with the molds."

Indeed the hair on the sculptures is spectacular and really seems to fit the two obnoxious teens.  If you must have the sculpted pair of Beavis and Butt-head they are  for sale for $14,000.  "Conjoined II" displays at Copro Gallery in the Bergamot Station Arts Center from January 21 through February 11.


Which hairstyle do you like best?  Beavis or Butt-head's?  Do you think they have exagerrated bedheads or just big hair that they consciously style into their own versions of a pompadour?
