This is a hard stage for children in "trying to fit in" instead of focusing on the "look cute" stage ask your child what makes them feel good. Reinforce that looks aren't everything and focus more on the positive things your child shows. Best of Luck.
There is an awkward phase in a child's life as they are about to hit puberty. All you can do is get them a cute hair cut and dress them nice. Just embrace your child for who they are and don't worry if they look ugly or not. It's just a phase.
