Short hair, don’t care! Ariana Grande said “thank u, next” hairstyle please by unveiling her new short cut in an Instagram video.
The “my hair” singer ditched her signature long ponytail that’s always swaying from side to side and unveiled her shoulder-length bob peeking out from underneath a fuzzy orange bucket hat in a video posted Wednesday (June 30).
Her photographer Alfredo Flores commented, “there she is!!!” as a way to announce the new Ari to her fans, who are all here for the major transformation. Even if Grande’s ponytail has long been her common identifier, she told Zach Sang in November that her then-boyfriend (now husband) Dalton Gomez is a big fan of her real, big curly hair and is always here for when she wants to ditch her long locks.
“My real hair, which is the humungous, curly, curly poof, is kind of, I don’t know. … So few people get to see it, and it’s cute, and it reminds me of me as a kid and it reminds me of … It’s who I am privately,” she said. “But so is this. I wear my ponytail all the time too, but the curls are definitely something that I don’t bring around much. … And my boyfriend loves it. He’s like, ‘Curlies, yay!’ So it’s a very intimate thing. … Hair, for me, is such a guard, character, facade-type thing and it’s had its own evolution, but it has always been this kind of costume piece.”
