Ewww Ewww Ewwwwwwwww!!! So gross, never suggested EVER!!! No matter how hot you are you can never pull this off. This is so nasty and hickish. I don't want to offend anyone but please if you have one, shave it off. Okay so bottom line, rat tails are just repulsive and no one should get this hair style. Long or short, braided or loose, just never get one guys.
