One of my most favorite pastimes is looking at awkward photos, especially of friends and loved ones. If they’re nice about it, I’ll even share my pics from 5th grade, when I wore an off-the-shoulder peasant top, frosted lipstick, and had big bangs. Fun stuff. I think the best awks pics I’ve seen are of my best friend when she was in middle school. Was there a reason why she wore a bolo tie in her 7th grade yearbook photo? Hours of laughter. Hours. A new blog, Before You Were Hot, documents the before and after of ugly ducklings becoming swans. Looking at awkwardly fug kids turn into hot adults is a good time guaranteed. Just trust me, you need to check it out. Some of my favorite fug-to-hottie transformations after the jump. [Urlesque]

Ahhh, the bang perm. It can make the best-looking Emma Watson look-a-like look-a-like crap.
