You may be tired of being called "four eyes" or "face braces," and you may not think that wearing glasses or braces is fun. But it's all in the attitude! These days, glasses and anything else that can make you labeled a "geek" can actually make you cooler because we now live in a geek culture. If you want to look great with braces and glasses, then you need to know how cool you really are and how to look and act accordingly. If you want to be on your way to loving the way you look, take a look at Step 1 to get started.
Part 1 of 2: Getting the Right Attitude
Step 1. Don't think that braces and glasses make you a nerd
Although recently, the terms "nerd" and "geek" have been reclaimed as being pretty cool, if people are still using both words negatively at your school, then you need to realize that your glasses and braces are anything but. has to do with your actual personality. If you don't want to be labeled a geek, then you have to think that you're not a geek (unless you're a geek, of course -- and that's cool too!).
- People may have an idea of what it means to wear braces and glasses -- it's up to you to prove them wrong!
- If you act like you're cool, then people will definitely follow you. But if you act weak or fearful, then you will leave an opening for people to call you a geek or a geek.
Step 2. Stick to your original personality
Stick to your original personality and be confident. No matter what people tell you, you are still your usual self. If you don't change your personality, your feelings, or your behavior, then people won't think twice about your glasses and braces. Wear what you normally wear and still be your smiling and cheerful self. If people notice a change in your behavior, they will know that your glasses and braces are to blame.
If you're normally friendly, don't let your glasses or braces get in your way
Step 3. Don't take yourself too seriously
Learn to laugh at yourself. If you want to tease yourself for having four eyes or a metal face, go for it. Why not get ahead of people before they do? If people know that you are comfortable with your quirks, then they will back down. If you act like you're constantly worried about what people will say about your braces and glasses, they're more likely to make fun of you.
Be kind and friendly. If you have a good personality, fewer and fewer people will notice your metallic mouth. Remember Ugly Betty, who did this successfully
Step 4. Remember that glasses are trending right now
Wearing glasses, whether in the form of thick sunglasses or a thinner type, is now a trend. Celebrities like Ryan Gosling, Anne Hathaway, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber have been spotted wearing this trendy accessory. It's a cool thing to wear glasses, and although glasses make some think of computers and "nerds," guess what? Computers, tech, and programming are all very popular in this world, so even if that doesn't describe you, wearing glasses will make you cooler, not less cool, because of those associations.
Step 5. Know that braces don't last forever
Even in the most extreme of circumstances, you won't be wearing your braces throughout your entire elementary, middle, and high school years. We're talking about a year or two of discomfort in exchange for clean, white teeth. You shouldn't be counting down the time to when your braces are removed, but you should remember that soon, your teeth will no longer display any extra metal.
Step 6. Tell yourself that everyone feels self-conscious about something
It doesn't matter how old you are, but especially if you're almost a teen or a teen, you're going to spend most of your time around people who are just little balls of stress and inferiority. Everyone at that age has something they don't like about themselves, from acne to height, so you can just rejoice that the only thing you have to worry about is braces and glasses, and learn to love those aspects of yourself. yourself.
Step 7. Know that people will get used to your new look pretty quickly
It will only take you about a week of wearing your glasses for you to take your glasses off for a bit and find people saying, "Wow, you look weird without them!" People will quickly adapt to your new look and will forget that you used to look different. And that includes you too. Once you get used to it, you won't even expect yourself to be wearing glasses or braces because you'll get used to your new self.
Step 8. Stay confident
Remember how amazing you are -- glasses, braces, and all that stuff. Don't be afraid to attend a party because you don't like how you look. Don't be afraid to approach your crush because you think that, after all, you'll never be able to kiss while wearing braces. Live your daily life remembering how amazing you are, and the rest will be as easy as pie.
Remember that you love who you are, what you do, and everyone in your life. If you've always had low self-esteem, work to overcome your weaknesses and find something you're interested in. If you are happy with yourself, then you will be happy with how you look
Part 2 of 2: Getting the Right Look
Step 1. Find a part of yourself that you want to show people
Whether it's your cool sense of dress, your athleticism, singing or dancing talent, whatever! Find the part of yourself that makes you the most unique. Let this be something people will notice, not your glasses. Point out your favorite personality trait or ability (without being overly cocky), and you'll see that this is what people are really going to focus on.
If you like singing karaoke, don't be afraid to go on stage and sing your favorite song
Step 2. Free yourself and change your appearance
Are you bored with your always the same haircut? Think you've been choosing the wrong hairstyle? Feel like you've been using the wrong way to make up? Well, this might be the perfect time to reward yourself with a look boost. If you're already happy with how you look, of course, you don't have to do this!
It can be fun getting a new haircut when you have to wear braces and glasses. Just don't try to style your hair to cover your face more, or people will make fun of you
Step 3. Don't hide your smile
Don't be one of those people who have been afraid to smile for three years because of braces. Not smiling much externally will make you a less happy person on the inside. So keep on putting on your smile, to be a happy person, and to let people see your teeth. Don't let your appearance stop you from having a great time with your friends. You'll become a little self-conscious about smiling with your new braces, at first, but after a little practice, you and everyone around you will forget you're wearing braces.
Step 4. Choose glasses and braces that suit your personality
There is a wide range of color and shape options available for eyeglasses. There is also a choice of contact lenses. Some patients can use Invisalign instead of braces, but even the rubber bands on braces can be adjusted for those who want colored teeth or made white/clear for those who want unobtrusive braces.
- Don't think that wearing glasses or braces means you have to look unattractive for a while. You'll have to wear them all for a while, so you should all use them to get your best look.
- It depends on the look you want. Some people use their favorite color in their braces to add style to their appearance, while others prefer clear braces. It's all about what makes you feel good.
Step 5. Take care of your appearance
Don't stop caring about your clothes and appearance just because you're wearing glasses and braces. If you usually like to wear nice clothes, then keep doing that. Don't switch to sweatpants just because you feel lethargic about how you look. In fact, you can even dress up a little more if you think it will make you feel energized and special.
If you usually wear make-up, stick with it. Don't think that you want to distract people from your pretty face
Step 6. Take care of yourself
Keep yourself clean and well-groomed. Wear a little mascara, blush, and lip gloss, and a little perfume if you're a girl. And if you're a guy, make smelling good your top priority, this will not only attract girls, it will also boost your self-confidence. Showering regularly, and putting on deodorant is just enough, although wearing cologne is always good.
