Grace VanderWaal, best known for winning America’s Got Talent in 2016, has finally joined TikTok.
The singer-songwriter, who is just 16 years old but already has quite the career under her belt, skyrocketed to fame at 12 after performing original songs on the ukulele and bearing a striking resemblance to Taylor Swift.
Those days are gone now, though — she’s got an entirely new look.
Instead of rocking a sharp bob, VanderWaal’s hair is now shaved.
She debuted the look on her brand new TikTok account.
