I’ve been spending countless hours scrolling through TikTok since I’ve been in quarantine. While I haven’t actually made a TikTok video yet, plenty of celebrities sure have. Bella Hadid debuted “gray hair” on the app (it wasn’t real) and now, JoJo Siwa has shown us what her hair looks like when it’s not up in her signature high ponytail.
If you don’t know who Siwa is, she first burst into the spotlight as a star oon the reality TV show Dance Moms (seriously, if you haven’t seen this girl dance, you’re missing out).
Today, she’s a YouTube personality, singer, and dancer. She’s rarely seen without her signature ponytail, styled with outrageous hair bows (versions of which she sells, by the way).
But on April 21, Siwa said a brief goodbye to her typical look, and instead decided to give her fans on TikTok a little treat, showing them what her hair actually looks like when it’s not swept up into a bow-laden pony. The video was posted in response to a viewer commenting, “Dress normal for a day.” Let’s just say the 16-year-old sensation took the challenge and ran with it.
The dancer started her video in the attire you’d typically see her in — bright, sparkly, unicorn-esque. Her hair was styled as it always is, in a high ponytail with a bow. She pops up in a series of these outfits, but at the end she makes the ultimate transformation, showing up in a simple black graphic T-shirt, with her hair in loose, beachy waves. Let’s just say it: Siwa’s wavy texture is gorgeous and very mermaid-like. While we do love her usual snatched ponytail, it’s nice to see her step out of her on-screen persona and serve us a little siren goddess tease.
JoJo, if you’re reading this, we need to see more of this hair, please and thanks.
