NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Almost everyone went through an awkward phase growing up, but some emerged as smokin’ hot babes.

On BeforeYouWereHot.com, former ugly ducklings can celebrate the braces, thick glasses, acne, and awful hair they sported back in their gawky years by sharing their photos and stories from those times.

They also post a current picture to show what beauties they blossomed into after discovering hair products, face wash, and themselves.

Creators Anne Ichikawa and Melissa Walker say that the point where hotness happens for most is when they become comfortable with who they are.

Ichikawa adds, “You feel happier and look hotter when you stop worrying about what you look like.”

Walker feels the website is “a place to get a ‘we’re all in this together’ feeling” and get inspired by the process of growing up.

The ladies, who posted their own before and after shots, say boys tend to have the most dramatic transformations for unknown reasons.
