    Child in the 1980s with a rattail A rattail is a hair style that is characterized by a long "tail"-like element of hair growing downward from the back of the head. The rattail usually hangs naturally; however, it can be braided, treated as a dread, permed, straightened, or poofed, curled with an iron. In some instances, an individual might choose to grow several tails as opposed to a single very long tail. The rattail saw a brief period of mainstream popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s and has rapidly fallen out of vogue. However, it has recently seen renewed popularity.
