It’s one of the most used emojis in the world and we may finally know what it actually means.

We look at the lady in pink as a sassy independent woman when we send it our friends but that may not be the case.

Jessi Stern, an event planner from Toronto, Canada, believes the woman in pink is part of a two part emoji series involving a haircut.

She says that instead of putting her hand out in a sassy gesture, the woman is in fact demonstrating her new hair do, following on from the haircutting emoji.

In a Facebook post that was sent out at 1:13AM (peak thinking time), Jessi writes.

”ALERT: Everyone I am a genius.

It is 1:13 in the morning and I have to go to work tomorrow but I found out the meaning behind the woman in pink emoji.


Look, in the haircutting one she has long hair. That gets cut at her shoulders and now she’s showing it off”.

She then adds ”There is meaning to everything in life”.

This is the latest in a long saga of Emoji related reasoning, with one tweet last year saying it was the story of a marriage and a divorce or another person thought she was carrying an invisible tray of drinks.


It’s still sass for me. I am the royal family of sass.
