Ariana Grande Ditches The Ponytail And Debuts A Brand New Look!
Ariana Grande ditched her signature ponytail on Thursday and sported a new look. Not too far of a departure from her classic half up half down style, the singer shared with fans her new Star Wars inspired do.
“Princess Leia-ish vibes on my day awf in japan,” she wrote on the social media website.
In a series of snapshots, the 21-year-old can be seen sporting two mini buns on top of her head while the rest of her hair flows down her back.
Grande, who is reportedly dating rapper Big Sean, always wears the same hairstyle, but in a Twitter post written earlier this year, the star explained why she doesn’t opt for anything but.
“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,” she wrote in a series of tweets.
“I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years of playing Cat [on Victorious]…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 ponytail because my actually hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.”
Grande continued, “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 hairstyle 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 ya’ll very much.”
