How to change the datetime format in Pandas

My dataframe has a DOB column (example format 1/1/2016) which by default gets converted to Pandas dtype ‘object’.

Converting this to date format with df['DOB'] = pd.to_datetime(df['DOB']), the date gets converted to: 2016-01-26 and its dtype is: datetime64[ns].

Now I want to convert this date format to 01/26/2016 or any other general date format. How do I do it?

(Whatever the method I try, it always shows the date in 2016-01-26 format.)
