JoJo Siwa transformed her hair into a mullet for the algorithm. In a TikTok posted on Monday, August 15, the 19-year-old debuted a blonde mullet hairstyle — short hair in the front and on the sides but longer (in Siwa’s case, much longer) in the back. She made faces and lip-synched to the audio that said, “What fuck? Did you just call me ‘mullet daddy?'”
“It’s giving…” Siwa wrote in the post’s caption, followed by a series of cowboy emojis. In a TikTok video posted earlier, Siwa introduced the hairstyle from the inside of her car. The video contains the same audio. In that post, the caption is simply the blonde child emoji.
Siwa fans had a field day with their reactions, comparing the do to those of Billy Ray Cyrus, David Spade’s Joe Dirt (with some fans calling her JoJo Dirt), and Joe Exotic of Netflix’s Tiger King (just when I had completely erased that show from my brain). Will Siwa turn the mullet into her once iconic, now gone ponytail?
Back in April, the Dance Moms alum chopped off her signature blonde ponytail in favor of a pixie cut that is now the mullet. On Instagram, Siwa shared a video of the ponytail being snipped off. “Mayyyyy have done something todayyyy,” Siwa captioned the post. The following day she posted the final look, a pixie cut with shaved sides and loose curls on top.
