"My awkward phase spanned a nine year period from second grade to sophomore year of high school. (Ouch!). The before photo is from freshman year of high school. This was, quite possibly, the climax of my awkward streak. The 'after' photo was taken a mere two and a half years later at age 16 (2012). Very quick and thankfully dramatic transformation once those awful bangs and short hair were gone!" -
"Ohio, age 14, 2005. This was a school picture from my competitive spelling days. People would often tell my mother, sister, and brother that they were 'so beautiful'... then turn to me and ask if I was 'really smart.' Obviously, I was not -- a smart girl wouldn't have left the house with Motley Crue hair. Eith years later, my enthusiasm for Star Wars and accounting still earns me the nickname 'Nerdelei,' but at least 'Frizzelei' is finally in the past!" -Lorelei
