Ariana (finally) lets her hair down!

We’ve always associated Ariana with her signature ponytail perfectly, but can you spot her now?

Ariana Grande

Hooray! Ariana Grande has finally shaken it up and has gone with a beautifully relaxed hairdo! #bravo

The 21-year-old was snapped in London, rocking a seriously natural ‘do with subtle ombre hues that ALMOST distracted us from the recent pic that emerged of her and Big Sean kissing.

The star is rarely seen not sporting her trademark high ponytail (that boasts around three heads worth of hair extensions), so this is BIG.

Do you think Ariana embracing her (sort of) natural locks could have something to do with her new BF? In any case, we're hoping these two lovebirds are in it for the long run.

Don’t get too excited about Ari’s gorgeous new ‘do, it might be a long time till we see the petite pop star going sans ponytail again.

So why exactly does she always rock that pony?

Back in January, Ariana took to Facebook to spill on the big mystery:

“I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years of playing Cat… as one would assume, that completely destroyed my hair…. I wear extensions but I wear it in a ponytail because my actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.

“And trust me, it’s even more difficult for me to have to wait forever for my natural hair to grow back.”

We just love Ariana’s honesty. And today, we’re loving her hair!

What do you think, is the world really ready for a free-spirited and wild-haired Ariana, or is her signature ponytail iconic?
