Katie's hair is all business up front. But it's lost the party in the back. That's right, The Couric Mullet has gone missing!

Katie committed a major beauty blunder when she appeared on the CBS Evening News in early December sporting a mullet (pictured, right). Now don't get us wrong - we love a good rattail....on 15 year old Taylor Momsen. But not so much on the lead anchor of a major broadcasting company.

Now, Katie has switched it up on us again with a pert pixie hairstyle (pictured, left). While we prefer it to December's mullet, we do find her new look a tad masculine - but Katie's strand shenanigans are distracting us from the dire economy and the Iraq War, so we guess that's a good thing. Whatever happened to the fun-loving, stylish Katie with the cute shoulder-length coif?

Of course, she's had a few hair missteps in the past (see the gallery of Katie's hair through the years, below) but we think this stoic and serious version is a total snore. It's a change we definitely don't believe in - how about you? - Dana Oliver
