Eighteen-year-old YouTuber JoJo Siwa – who came out as pansexual earlier this year – recently decided to switch up her hairstyle, ditching her now-legendary signature bow for a “more mature” look. A difficult decision, to be sure, and one that was fraught with emotion. For instance: How would her mother deal with it?
When Siwa’s mother asked her if it was “harder to come out to me or tell me that you wanna wear your hair different?”, she said: “I was like, ‘It surprisingly was harder to tell you that I wanted to wear my hair different.'”
In a chat with Instagram head Adam Mosseri, she explained:
“I just had my 18th birthday and it was right around my birthday that I realized, ‘I kinda wanna do my hair different today.’
“It just felt like the right time and to do something different and to do something maybe a little bit more mature or a little upgrade.”
However, the ‘Dance Moms’ star claims she won’t be ditching bows for good just yet.
“The bow is still a part of my life. I still love bows, I forever will. They’re who I am, but maybe I won’t wear it every day.”
Oh! We are all SO relieved.
