Thought this would be a fun and interesting little question that you don't hear too often, but for girls and guys.
Have you ever seen someone completely transform? I was watching the Beauty and the Geek and when they do the "Make over" part, the reactions are incredible. Guys who look totally different before and after, and a lot of them are actually pretty popular with the girls!
Or to the guys - that one girl who was sort of cute in her younger years, but when you see her again, your jaw drops?
I tend to stay away from superficial questions, but hopefully this should generate some fun answers.

I see lots of people transform. One of my friends went downhill. She used to be a good friend with me and this other girl when we began high school, and then she kind of turned bitter and mean. I still feel bad about how she turned out...
Another friend was a major prep, goody-goody that the more popular kids wouldn't give the time of day, and then she started hanging with them and is now an edge member of them. Good for her? She's happy.
A friend a year younger than me went through a huge one. He was always really short, and sang in the school choir as the only guy and had a beautiful soprano voice. He was also short and a little immature. People would tease him and they would get a rise out of him. Then I went off to high school, and I didn't see him for that whole year. (We weren't best friends or anything). When he got to high school, he had grown at least six inches, had a deep, and frankly, pretty sexy voice, and is now super patient/calm/mature. Complete 180.
I also went through one. I was always the girl people called "cute" or "sweet" and then I got my braces off, got contacts and took up enough sports to get super trim all in one year. I think it was too spread out for people at school to notice, so they all treat me the same, but strangers definitely treat me differently. It's a strange awareness, when you realize that people look at you and recognize at lease some form of hotness. It makes me feel a little icky inside. :S0
