15 people share the embarrassing ways they tried to be 'cool' when they were younger.

Most people spend their adolescence trying on different identities, and some of those identities are just plain embarrassing.

Whether you attempted an at-home hair bleach, a snarky new persona or an ill-advised emo phase, you can look back on your teen years with a mixture of embarrassment and relief that your attempts at edginess didn't stick.

A recent Reddit thread asked, "What’s the 'edgiest' thing you’ve ever done to make yourself 'look cool' but that actually made you look stupid?" The results are a cornucopia of cringe.

1. Hey, at least a wig can be taken off.

Purple wig. 14 years old. To classes. - abbylikesoreos

2. A lot of millennials can relate to this one.

My whole emo phase - dacringeyfangirl

3. Oh no, never be that guy.

I used to be sunglasses-indoors-and-at-night guy. - onomatopaella

4. Why do overly long bangs carry a strange allure when you're young?

When I was around age 10, I thought it was the coolest thing ever to wear my bangs in front of my eyes like an anime character. Like, BOTH EYES. I couldn't see and it wasn't cool. - struggleglot
