View Full Version : Hair after braces: a 17-month-progress :)

I can see you thinking 'mmm what does hair have to do with braces?? NOTHING??'. Well, that's true I guess! However, during the progress I got a lot of comments from the assistants that my hair had gotten so long! So I thought it would be fun to share the progress :) Back then it was still an ear-length bob (I honestly have very 'low' ears haha!), but after 17 months I have almost reached a new goal: APL! Just half an inch or so more and it's APL. 17 months flew by and I'm so relieved that I got the braces off (today!!) AND my hair has gotten a lot longer too, I just felt like showing off ;) My hair hasn't been this long since I was a kid, so it's definitely a bit of a milestone for me :)

Back in February last year!

And today! Excuse the goofy face, I was just very happy :D And blinded by the sun haha. Hair is a bit frizzy because I had just washed it AND brushed it and my hair hates that haha.

I just don't realize that it's been 17 months already, time flew by! Okay, that is all, now I'm done showing off :D Bye!

Congratulations on getting your braces out! I also had braces as an adult and I know how wonderful it is to have them taken out. Both hair and teeth looks great! Go out and rock it and celebrate your new smile now! :hollie:

Wow, oktobergoud, what a progress! Very pretty!
I remember when I got my braces off, I couldn't stop smiling for a week.

Where does "oktobergoud" come from by the way? Just curious :)

It comes from a site that was literally called 'pretty words' haha, I was looking for a username for something. I liked this one :)

And I can't stop smiling either, it's so weird! I feel like a different person ;)

Thanks! And you won't regret it, trust me. It's definitely a pain in the bottom but it's so worth it!


You look gorgeous!

Thanks :flower:
