Joy-Anna, 25, excitedly told viewers: “Today is a huge day. Huge. Austin is out of town. His parents are watching the kids for me. I’m going to get my haircut. I’m so, so, so excited. … I’m going to get it probably like armpit length to start with.

“I’ve always had long hair, I love it. I feel like you can always do so much styling, but I thought for the winter and this pregnancy it’d be fun to change it up, so I’m doing it.”

The star filmed herself getting ready to head to the salon, as well as her time in the stylist’s chair and the final product.

Once home, she waited for Austin to arrive to gauge his reaction.

Joy-Anna and Austin hugged and kissed before she made the grand reveal.

She asked, “Is it too short?” before adding, “It’s curled so it looks shorter than it is.”

The pregnant former TLC star then asked, “What do you think?” to which her husband replied: “I don’t hate it. … I think it needs to be that much longer.”

The video was shared on Reddit, where Duggar fans and critics alike weighed in.

Many laid into Austin, calling his reaction to Joy-Anna’s new look “sad.”

The original poster wrote: “Austin was so unenthused at Joy’s haircut, saying it needed to be longer. She stayed up until 1am to show him and spent so much time trying to convince him it looked good, how sad to always search for and need your husband’s approval on your physical appearance.”

One critic replied: “Not only was he unimpressed but HIS DAD had already told Austin that Joy got her hair cut.”

“His attitude changed when he knew she was recording. When he walked in, unaware she was recording he said things like “I don’t know if I like it” “maybe if it was a little bit longer” etc but when she was holding the camera in front of them and he knew she was recording the kind things came out about liking that it makes her happy and loving it,” a second critic wrote.

They added: “I’d say it was interesting to see but really.. it wasn’t surprising.”

A third commenter wrote: “I would kill to have hair like that. It looks great and looks great on her. Nostrils [Austin] can go fly a kite.”

“Nostrils is just jelly that he doesn’t get to have shiny, bouncy waves too,” a fourth hater wrote, also referring to Austin by the nasty nickname.

“That makes me sad. She looks happy with it in this pic,” someone else added


A hair change is not the only exciting thing going on in Joy-Anna and Austin’s lives.

The pair recently announced that they’re expecting another baby together.

Shortly after that, they shared the child’s gender.

Now they’re giving clues about what they’ll name the child when it’s born.

Joy-Anna recently hosted a Q&A, fielding inquiries from fans.

A supporter asked: “Any name ideas for the baby boy? Congrats!”

Joy-Anna replied: “We have one name on our list so far. We normally don’t choose a name until after the baby is born!”

In addition to the answer, she shared a beautiful photo of her two other children holding her sonogram photos.


Joy-Anna and Austin announced the gender of their baby after throwing a gender reveal party with family and friends.  

They posted a video on YouTube to share their news with the world. 

In the video description, Joy-Anna wrote: “Austin built the dartboard, Aunt Jana, set up all of the balloons and we had so much help with the party prep!”

When Joy-Anna asked the crowd what gender they thought the baby is, her parents Jim Bob and Michelle both said they guessed that it was a girl.

The video shows the dart board covered with balloons that were each filled with blue and pink powder. 

After every balloon was popped, a confetti cannon with blue confetti was shot into the air to confirm the baby is a boy.

Austin said: “I’m just in shock… I’m so grateful… if it was a girl I’d be just as happy, but I’m really glad Gideon is going to have a little brother.”

Joy-Anna also said that she was “so happy” and “excited.”
