That's not a haircut for a child; that's a haircut for a 48 year-old accountant named Phyllis. (Notice that I didn't say it was a GOOD haircut... for anybody.) 

I don't know about you, but looking good for school picture day was kind of a big deal when I was a kid. We'd all wear our best outfits, run a plastic comb through those crooked bangs and generally do our best kid-spruce-up routine. The kids in this gallery, however... not so much.

Some of them are just victims of the times; you'll find some bad 80s 'dos, some terrible 90s spikes, and even one 1960s bouffant. Yet some of them are just plain bad taste, and for that I think we have to blame their parents. Seriously, who lets their kids walk around with a rat tail? Call child protective services, because that is some damn child abuse.

Click through to see them all -- you really have to see them to believe them!

It couldn't just be a bowl cut. Oh no. It also had to have a rat tail/mullet.
