Olivia Jade Giannulli is soaking up the sun with her new red locks.

The social media influencer, 22, took to Instagram this weekend to share some sultry photos of herself in a brick-red bandeau-style bikini.

"Photo credit Ursula," she wrote in the caption, riffing on her resemblance to The Little Mermaid's main character, Ariel.

Giannulli received plenty of responses to her bikini shots from her friends and followers. Natasha Bure, daughter of Candace Cameron Bure, replied with "So firrrreeeeee" and "THAT'S MY BABY.

Upon completing her hair transformation last week, the influencer recognized how much the fiery locks made her resemble her mother: Full House star Lori Loughlin. In a screenshot of a text message from her mom, Loughlin shared an old shot of herself from the beloved sitcom in which she closely resembled her daughter.

Back in January, Giannulli spoke about her drive to succeed on her podcast, Conversations With Olivia Jade. She made it clear that she was a good student in school, even though her famous parents, Loughlin and business tycoon Mossimo Giannulli, served time in prison for bribing both their daughters' way into the University of Southern California after becoming embroiled in the college admissions scandal of 2019. Giannulli went on to leave the university.

"But then there's also a part of me that feels ... it's tricky. It's hard to speak on because I know that to the average human, I have it easy. I know that to myself as well."

But she defended her work ethic, pointing to her successful YouTube vlog and the straight As she says she received in school.

"There is a big misconception about me, I feel at least personally, where I get that comment of, 'You don't work hard,'" Giannulli added.
