JoJo Siwa Reveals Stress Rash From Her ‘Dance Moms’ Day Caused Her To Be Bald

JoJo Siwa said goodbye to her signature ponytail in April 2022, ending an era of super tight ponytails adorned with bows and sequins. While the ponytail could now be replaced with a cute short cut, the dance moms star Is have a reminder of its roots – literally.

Recently, JoJo took to TikTok to explain the origins of her baldness, and spoiler alert, it’s not really the ponytail’s fault. “When someone notices my baldness and asks where it’s coming from,” JoJo posted on TikTok on July 27, flipping the camera to show the small lock of hair near her temple where no hair is currently growing.

She then flashes on a series of photos of herself younger on dance moms looking emotional and stressed, revealing that the culprit of baldness was not tight ponytails but rather a stress rash.

JoJo may be missing a few hairs, but that doesn’t stop her from experimenting with her look. She’s been having fun playing around with her short haircut lately and has tried many different styles during her time on Dancing with the stars and beyond.

When she initially ditched the quintessential JoJo Siwa arc that often came with the pony, she told Kelly Clarkson it was time to move on. “She’s just on vacation. A long vacation,” JoJo told the host. “I love my bow and I always will. It’s a piece of my life [but] I had a lot of fun exploring with my hair. Every day I do something fun with it.”
