Changes are possible! You can make changes! JoJo SiwaHer long, blonde hair is a hallmark of her. She often wears it in a high ponytail with an accent bow.

“So, I just got my hair cut yesterday, and yesterday I went for, like, [a] down and curly moment but today I went for, like, an up and back moment,” the Dancing With the Stars 18-year-old season 30 finalist explains in an Instagram Story video on Thursday, April 7. “I think I might be into the up and back [style]. I mean, it’s going to be different every day as I’m still learning how to do it. It’s way different than long hair, it’s crazy but, ahhhh.”

Siwa first debuted her new haircut via an Instagram post on Thursday, sharing a selfie of her new ‘do. She captioned it, “HAPPPPPY.”

The Nebraska native rose to fame as a cast member on Lifetime’s Dance MomsShe often wore a ponytail and a hair bow in bright colors. The style soon became her signature look and even inspired a line of hair accessories sold via Nickelodeon’s licensing branch.

“Back on Dance Moms, we were all very lazy with getting ready is what I’ll say,” Siwa exclusively told Us Weekly in May 2020. “To think back to those days, I could go a week without showering. Literally, I would put my hair up in a ponytail. I’d fall asleep with it in a ponytail. I would wake up and re-slick it. Like I’d just spray down my wispies and I’d go on with my day. Like, I would leave it in for days at a time.”

She continued: “And as I got older, it just kind of just stayed with me. I just never felt a need to do anything different.”

As the Nickelodeon alum — who publicly came out in January 2021 — has grown up, she’s been getting used to showing off her natural hair texture via social media, which made headlines as she showed off a different side.

“It didn’t encourage me to have it down more often,” Siwa told Use It was at the time. “It also though, didn’t scare me of putting it down, because when you’ve done something for so long, it can be scary to do something different. And to see that the world was like, ‘Whoa, we like this.’ I was like, ‘Oh, that’s pretty cool.’ Now, if I ever want to put it down again, they love it.”

The “Kid in a Candy Store” performer’s new hairdo isn’t the only change that she’s made in her life recently. Siwa, a former sex partner Kylie PrewA new love has been in her life for almost a year.

“I was gonna erase my whole bio but just put the lock [emoji],” the J Team star gushed during an interview on the “Rachel Uncensored” podcast on March 30. “We’re not single. I say ‘we’re’ because it’s me and my multiple personalities within myself. … I am not single and I don’t want to mingle. No, I’m a loyal lady.”

She added: “Listen, I went around the block, I tried a lot, and I learned a lot and I’m very, very, very happy where I am now.”
