    Too cute! I also had headgear, but dared never to wear it in public. But I love this photo. So epic, so 80s!

      Hey there. Am a recent college grad with braces. As rare as it is for an adult to wear braces, I also wear a headgear as of Wednesday (yes, wearing it Wednesday night wrecked my ability to eat on Thanksgiving!). Was curious, since you said you once wore it, did you wear it or not? I’ve read that a lot of kids don’t wear it and things still work out. It’s just so hard to come home from work and don this thing. Any advice? Thanks, and sorry to bring back painful memories, lol! – Dave

    why oh why would this poor girls parents commemorate this with a photo? The only reason i can think of is black mail.

    I had to go back and look for “the duck bill” – Oh man, I’m laughing – Thank you so much!! I don’t even know the name of mine, but it started on the top of my head and went down my part and around my neck. There was no denying it and I think I only cared that I got a purple one. YOU, my dear, wear this one oh so well!

    Oh, man…headgear. Kids these days are luckier than they know. My parents always used to threaten me with it…”Do ______________ or you’ll have to wear your headgear to school.”

    Oh, I didn’t even see the mullet the first time! I like how her bangs go to the back of her head.
