What does Yassification mean?

A glamorous makeover, also known as Yassification

Yassification is all about turning something or someone ordinary into extraordinary and glamorous. It could be a person, a house, a car, or any object, and the transformation is usually so stunning that it gets a ‘Yasss!’ approval from onlookers. It’s a term that’s become quite popular among the younger generation, especially on social media platforms like TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram.

Originally, the word emerged from the ‘yasss’ exclamation, which was part of the drag culture back in the 1980s. A yassification should make others exclaim ‘Yasss!’ in approval of the fabulous makeover. It started to gain more attention in November 2021 when a Twitter account named @YassifyBot began posting yassified images of celebrities.

The yassified images typically include features like plump lips, prominent cheekbones, smoky eyes, and a fabulous hairstyle. They were created to make famous people look even more glamorous, almost like a drag queen.

While most yassifications so far have been happening online, they can also take place in real life. You could yassify your friend for a special occasion or even give your living room a yassification by making it look more stylish and glamorous.
