1. Sky-high ponytail

There was a time when we felt like we wouldn’t be able to recognize Ariana Grande without her sky-high pony. The pop star and her ponytail were inseparable—from concerts to the red carpet. A high ponytail lends a youthful, playful vibe to her look; and it would do the same for yours too, should you choose to try on this sleek sassy hairstyle.

2. Hair-wrapped hair tie

Ariana never shows the world her hair ties. Whether she’s sporting her usual high ponytail or switching to a half-up-half-down ‘do, her hair ties are always concealed with a section of her own hair. This is quite easy to recreate. After you’ve secured your pony with an elastic, get a small section of hair and wrap it around your tie. Secure it in place with a bobby pin and spray the area with a little bit of hairspray to hold.

3. Hair extensions

We don’t recommend the use of hair extensions every single day as this may result in permanent hair damage and hair loss; but it’s a good hair styling trick if you have thin hair or want to have longer hair for the day (or night). You can skip the extensions when you’re headed for school or work; but if you’re heading to a party or a fun night-out in the city and want to make a grand entrance, then by all means, extension away!

4. Voluminous, bouncy waves

Ariana is blessed with naturally thick voluminous hair. She usually amps it up with hair extensions; but her natural hair is thick enough to create huge bouncy waves even without them. Cop Ariana’s sexy hairstyle with heatless sponge curlers or a thick curling iron.

Boring will never be a word that describes Ariana’s different hairstyles. She often embellishes her hair with pearls, studs, and hair rings, and of course the infamous cat ears headbands. So stand out from the crowd by rocking your own version of hair accents — from ribbons, to rings and studs, to hair glitters…the options are endless.
