JoJo Siwa is ditching her signature look of an oversized bow and high ponytail. The Dance Moms alum, 16, took off her bow and let her natural hair shine in a recent TikTok video that took her fans on social media by storm. Shared with her followed on Monday, the video set to "Float on the Sound (Ey)" by Tiagz shows Siwa dancing in an array of brightly colored and energetic costumes before cutting to a more toned-down look of her in a t-shirt and wavy hair.

The seconds-long clip, which was shared with her 18 million TikTok followers, generated plenty of buzz. Used to seeing her with her hair pulled back into a sleek high ponytail, many were floored by Siwa's more natural appearance. On both TikTok and Twitter, where the clip was also shared, many commented with their reactions, applauding her decision to show off her natural hair.
One person wrote that "this is a whole other JoJo and i love it," while a second fan declared the split-second image of Siwa with her hair down a "historic moment." That sentiment was echoed by a third person, who jokingly asked "what chapter of the history books do y'all think this is gonna be in?"
