We've gotten so used to seeing Ariana Grande with her signature long, silky ponytail, we had almost forgotten that it's not actually her real hair. A few years back, Ari took to Facebook to explain why she always wears her hair in the same style, after being called out by a fan.
"Since people give me such a hard time about my hair I thought I'd take the time to explain the whole situation to everybody. I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first 4 years of playing Cat... as one would assume, that completely destroyed my hair. I now wear a wig on Sam & Cat."
"My real hair is back to brown and I wear extensions but I wear it in a pony tail because my actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down. I tried wigs, they looked RIDICULOUS. Tried a weave because I am working on a new project and want to try some different looks and literally wanted to rip my scalp off."
"So as annoying as it is for y'all to have to look at the same hair style all the time, it's all that works for now (AND I'm comfortable for the first time in years).... And trust me, it's even more difficult for me to have to wait forever for my natural hair to grow back and to have to wear more fake hair than every drag queen on earth combined. So PLEASE gimme a break about the hair (or just don't look at me lol). IT'S JUST HAIR AFTER ALL. There are way way way more important things. Love y'all very much."
Ari has stayed true to her word and has quite literally NEVER been seen out without her trusty pony tail, until today, that is. The 25-year-old posted an adorable throwback photo of herself when she was five years old, sporting a head full of ringlets.
"This is exactly what I look like without lashes and my pony, anyone who knows me knows like i'm twenty five' she captioned the pic.
Fans quickly jumped at the chance to get Grande to share a rare photo of her curls and to our utter delight the singer actually agreed. Rather than just posting a pic, Ari really stepped up to the challenge, showcasing her natural 'do in a video and she looks totally stunning.
Not only does she have the cutest, curly bob we've ever seen, she also has a fringe!? Personally, we think we prefer Ari's hair au naturel and we really wish she would wear it more often. The last time we saw her sporting curls was circa 2008.
Ariana, If you're listening, please put down the pony and embrace your curls, they're the bomb.
