For most of the world, getting through the '80s was a bumpy ride, and the '90s weren't much better until later on. Kids, or their insane parents, did the most regrettable things with their hair, and these school photos are most likely not something they look back on even a little bit fondly. In fact, we're pretty sure all of these hairstyles are now illegal.

If you or your kid's hairstyle was also straight up trippin' back in the day, we want to see it. Add it to our list below, then vote for the ones that made you the most glad we now live in 2017.

Not just the sideburns, the haircut is incredibly ridiculous and hideous. I just can't believe my eyes!

These may well be a Hassidic Jewish boy, and if so, his religion is involved here, or at least religious tradition. So think twice before you comment, please.

I remember wanting a mullet in the 80's. It was one of the few fashion choices my mom ever put her foot down on . She said, with the most sincerest of wisdom, "NO F*CKING WAY ARE YOU GETTING THAT STUPID HAIRCUT". Thanks, Mom, you were right!!!
