Tomboyish Sidetails YKTTW Discussion
A Tomboy who has two sidetails to complement her short hair.
Japanese media’s version of Tomboyish Ponytail and tomboy braids. Short hair and two tail on each side of the head that reach at least down to her shoulders used to set off girls who are Tomboys, Ladettes, or at least don't act in a "proper" girlish manner. Has similar effect as Short Hair with Tail, because short hair is boyish but the tails makes the hair just girly enough. Sometimes the sidetails are the only visual clue that the character is in fact a girl. Contrast Princess Curls.
