Ariana Grande’s ponytail is so iconic that it makes headlines when she switches its position. Grande keeps her hair straight, high, and tight, even when she’s just posing for the ‘gram. But every so often, she decides to (literally) let her hair down. This weekend, she reminded fans that, no, she didn’t exit the womb with a high ponytail. In fact, her natural hair is short and curly.
Grande shared a photo of herself at five years old with shoulder-length hair in ringlets and curly bangs. “This is still exactly what I look like without lashes and my pony,” she wrote. “The only difference is that hand now says bbq grill finger,” she said, alluding to her misspelled Kanji tattoo.
When a fan responded asking Grande for pictures, she obliged. Grande tweeted out a video of her playing with her natural hair — which is indeed shoulder-length, curly, and cut with bangs.
The video proves two things. First, one should never underestimate the power of a good hairstylist and lots of hair extensions. Second, Grande looks lovely with her natural hair texture. As one fan responded, “please throw away the extensions, your real hair is so cute.” We won’t hold out for her to ditch the extensions permanently, but maybe someone in Grande’s camp can temporarily hide her ponytail holders.
