          I always associated that look with Moe Howard from The Three Stooges. I don't really know anybody who had that haircut growing up, or any of the haircuts associated with 90s kids. We all just wore our hair however we wanted...Within reason, of course.

            Hahaha. I remember nearly all the boys at my school had that haircut when I was in second grade.

                  Most of the kids where I lived in the 90s had the sides shaved with a 0 - #1 faded to the top. The top was often times slicked back or spiked with gel. There were also boys that had long hair and/or bangs. I usually saw the Mushroom hairstyle on TV and in more suburban parts. The rat tail was gone by the 90s, but was common in the 80s. The bowl cut was also common in the 80s with little kids.
