If you’re still waiting for your glow up, don’t worry, there’s still hope for us all. Just check out what your favorite Asian celebs used to look like as children.

It doesn’t get any cuter than this photo of Constance (right) and her older sister. Who knew this little girl with a bowl haircut would become the elegant queen that she is today?

I’m convinced that every Asian child was forced to get this exact haircut at some point and it looks like even the “13 Reasons Why” and “Riverdale” hunk was a victim of this look.

3. Mindy Kaling

Actress, comedian, writer, producer, director and role model, Mindy Kaling is showing us what it really means to glow up. Please teach us your ways, Mindy.

4. Henry Golding

Nick Young..? Is that really you?

5. Shay Mitchell

Please, can we take a moment of silence to appreciate the beauty that is Shay Mitchell?

6. Zayn Malik

The former One Direction star Zayn Malik was still way cooler and more stylish than the rest of us even as a child, and honestly, we’re not surprised.

7. Gemma Chan

Congratulations to the “Crazy Rich Asians” actress and real-life princess Gemma Chan (right) for being the only Asian child in the world that wasn’t forced to get a bowl haircut.

This photo of young Steven at Medieval Times is the only thing on the internet that matters.

9. Chrissy Teigen

Even the Queen of Twitter isn’t immune to chickenpox, but LOOK AT HER NOW.

10. Daniel Henney

Daniel Henney, aka the ultimate heartthrob, looks almost unrecognizable as a child. How is this even possible?

11. Riz Ahmed

“Venom” actor Riz Ahmed, the first Asian man to win an Emmy for acting, is still a little bit goofy and we all love him for it. This is proof puberty and just a bit of facial hair can make all the difference.

12. Jamie Chung

Everyone’s woman crush, Jamie Chung still has the same adorable smile as her younger self, but she’s taken her brow and hair game to a whole new level.

13. Randall Park

The “Fresh Off The Boat” actor, Randall Park, has come a long way since this photo of him was taken. Drunk Santa is nowhere to be seen, but now he has a stunning, talented wife by his side.

14. Awkwafina

Awwwwww, but also, DAMNNNN. The “Crazy Rich Asians” star has really mastered the art of glowing up.

15. Keanu Reeves

If we’re honest, everyone’s favorite human, Keanu,has always been beautiful. While he has aged like fine wine, it’s lucky for him that his hairstyle hasn’t really changed.

16.  Lucy Liu

Can I just say, Lucy Liu (right) has always been a style icon even with a bowl cut.

17. Daniel Dae Kim

Daniel Dae Kim definitely wins the award for the best baby photo, hands down.

18. Priyanka Chopra

This photo of Priyanka from when she was 18 proves that she’s the only person on this planet who has never had an ugly phase ever in their lives. How is this fair? It’s not.
