Tons of celebs have been posting throwback photos, tagged #puberme, to raise money for Puerto Rico relief efforts. Some are blah. Some are brilliant.
And some are downright, well, sublime. In particular, we’re talking about This Is Us mom Mandy Moore’s submission. The actress has generally been killing it on the red carpet and is also the new face of Garnier. But things weren’t always so, well, glam for Moore, as you can see in this throwback photo she shared to her 1.5 million Instagram followers.

For starters, we have to give her major hair points, because she had an on-trend lob even during her childhood. So yay for Mandy. On the other hand, though: “Oooof. #permedbangs strike again.” Indeed.
How many of us, during our formative years, had ill-advised and poorly-executed experiments with our hair? Yes, guilty as charged. Though low-key, those waves Moore was sporting as a wee one are kinda everything.
Normally, Moore has polished, lustrous waves, styled usually by Ashley Streicher, so we’re loving the fact that she’s not afraid to laugh at herself.
“I think Mandy (and all my clients) is most comfortable when she feels herself. Working together, we’ve developed a friendship and I can tell when we’re starting to go too far into that uncomfortable zone. She has so many looks and loves to take risks, so my approach is to communicate with her what I think would look best, and then work with the whole team to complete a total look — not just a hair look,” says Streicher of her star client.
