JoJo Siwa has officially traded in her signature side ponytail and bows for a dramatic new do’.
The childhood star, who has become known to rock bright-colored outfits and matching hair bows since her first appearance on television, has shown a new side of herself since turning 18 years old.
After becoming known to have long hair — primarily straight and slicked back into a high ponytail — for most of her career, Siwa decided on Wednesday that it was time for a dramatic switch.
JoJo Siwa posted the photo of her new haircut after teasing followers
Siwa took to both Instagram and TikTok to show off her transformative new cut where she went from hair below her shoulders to a much shorter style. Siwa’s hair is now shaved on both sides, with a bit more length on the top that she has both left wavy and pushed back since getting it cut.
“HAPPPPPY,” Siwa put in the caption of her debut photo, insinuating that she is satisfied with her new look.
Siwa also posted an Instagram story to show off another style of the new cut after experimenting with it a bit. “So I just got my haircut yesterday, and yesterday I went for the ‘down and curly’ moment, but today I went for like an ‘up and back’ moment,” she said in a video showing off her new do’.
“It’s gonna be different every day as I’m still learning how to do it,” she went on, “It’s way different than long hair, it’s crazy, but, I’m obsessed!”
Siwa also took to the popular video-sharing platform TikTok to share the dramatic change with her 40 million followers. She uploaded a video shaking her new hair around while exuding happiness in front of the camera.
Before JoJo Siwa officially debuted her new haircut to her fans, she also teased it on both her Instagram and TikTok accounts. The 18-year-old businesswoman posted a video in a hair salon chair, laughing while somebody cut a lower section of her hair right above her shoulders.
Siwa wrote in the caption, “Mayyyyy have done something todayyyy 💇🏼♀️ .”
