How to Capture Rebellious Teenagers’ Before & After Photos


Thinking about this topic brings back memories of my teenage days, and I can’t help but cringe at how silly I was. I actually had not one, but two mohawks (also known as bihawks) at one point. Needless to say, my mom was not impressed. Looking back, I’m a bit embarrassed about my past self, even though it was a long time ago.

Nowadays, things are completely different, and I can’t help but chuckle at the outrageous before-and-after photos of other teens who have moved on from their emo, punk, goth, and rebellious phases. There’s no judgment here – as teenagers, we all go through those stages. It’s actually pretty cool to see how much people can change in just a few years after leaving high school.

This was “never really a phase,” she says

Teal hair and success? She’s proving that what some might call a “phase” is just a part of her authentic self.

Talk about a drastic change! She used to mock Britney Spears fans, and now Britney is her main musical preference. It just goes to show that you can’t judge the teenage angst-filled book by its cover. With her on the path to a Ph.D., she’s clearly evolved and defied expectations. It’s a reminder that tastes and pursuits can change dramatically over time, and we shouldn’t underestimate the growth potential in everyone’s journey.

All grown up with his big-boy job

How times change! From teenage hairstyles to being all grown up with a big-boy job as a tax consultant.

Cheers to her for navigating and thriving in these new and fulfilling roles!
