Thought the obsession with Ariana Grande’s hair was over? Think again. If anything, it’s probably reached its peak, after a photo of the singer sporting her natural curls was shared by hairstylist Josh Liu.
In the pic, Ari is laying on a pillow with a cute filter over her face, surrounded by masses of thick, shiny curls. Lui, who's accompanied the singer on her Sweetner tour captioned the snap: "Natural curls coming in strong with a little tlc."
Judging by the picture (and caption), it looks like she has been working on getting her curls back to optimal health, and who knows, maybe soon she’ll be able to give up her trusty ponytail for good.
Ari perviously discussed her decision for keeping her hair near constantly in a ponytail on Facebook, after being called out by a fan a few years back.
"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."
Since then, her curls have been such a rare sighting that whenever she strays from the signature, sleek style fans collectively lose their shit. Earlier this year, she gave people a sneak peek of her natural style, after initially posting an adorable throwback photo of herself as a 5-year-old with a head 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.
