The Wipe It Down challenge is set to BMW Kenny's single "Wipe It Down," and users are filming themselves squirting Windex onto a bathroom mirror and wiping it, revealing a new version of themselves. Many people have posted TikTok videos of themselves dressed-up or in cosplay before wiping it away.

JoJo got in on the action, revealing a "dressed-down" version of herself. Gone was her sparkly bow, colorful jacket, and side ponytail. When the teen wiped the mirror, she showed off her hair in loose waves, and a black Gucci T-shirt. She captioned the post: "It's my birthday tomorrow."

Twitter reactions to JoJo Siwa's new TikTok video!

After showing off her underdone look, people took to Twitter to share their reactions.

Thanks to TikTok I now stand @itsjojosiwa. Just a queen living her beautiful sparkly life. I wish I was being ironic but I'm not, this is what 8 weeks of isolation has done to me," wrote one person. Another added: "The people bashing jojo siwa for her brand (bows, glitter) while simultaneously praising her for putting down her hair and stuff for that tiktok are all clowns."

This user compared JoJo to another iconic teen idol, writing, "JoJo Siwa takes ONE TikTok w her hair down and suddenly she’s the new [Miley] Cyrus." 

Someone wrote: "I love that the TikTok of Jojo Siwa makes it look like she finally broke a curse that was keeping her a cartoon child for all eternity."

While JoJo may lay her hair down sometimes, it seems she's not ready to give up her iconic bow just yet.
