All are great, but headgear is my favorite. I also like how elastics instantly make regular metal braces more dramatic.

I agree with above poster -- can't beat the look of a dark colored powerchain contrasting with white teeth!  Really looks good towards the end of treatment when teeth are straight.

In my opinion most removable braces are more attractive but  most people remove them when going in public so I go for fixed metal braces

Intensive Headgear! The more embarrassing the better, Via: submissive public wear, bulky parts, mass of metals, bright colored straps, squeaky and clinky parts when talking or chewing and lisp causing :)

I like bulky and functional appliances with lots of extras functionality
I’m currently into frankels and activators since they are combined upper and lower in 1
Thus her activator has cool wires on each anterior tooth as well
Lots of expansion screws added also
I like active plates for upper and lower that are connected with herbst, I would add a sever tongue crib for full effect

Combination headgear - I think since I’ve never seen it in person it’s all the more exotic and interesting.

definitely fixed. I also kind of like the idea of a Herbst appliance, seems like an interesting balance of visible/invisible with the patient always knowing it is there. I'd love to know what it feels like!

...and of course headgear is kind of a favourite look....but it's almost TOO obvious, for me the Herbst is more interesting in many ways!

I would agree, I get more questions about my herbst than I ever did about wearing headgear. There's a certain tension between super visible and unique.
