Ariana Grande has crimped her ponytail and it’s so ’90s!

Arianna | 23 August 2016

Ariana Grande has upgraded her ponytail.

We’re not quite sure who’s more famous: Ariana Grande or her signature ponytail. Typically worn high and straight, the Ariana Grande ponytail has become an iconic hairstyle in its own right. And just when we had got accustomed to it, the Into You singer decided to switch it up – this time, with the help of a trusty hair crimper!

Back to the ’90s: Ariana Grande ponytail revamp

Taking to her Instagram to post a series of ponytail-related pictures, Ariana showcased her new and improved crimped updo, which she wore at a concert at the Billboard Hot 100 FestivalHer super long ombre hair had been styled into a super high and extra poofy ponytail (because the more dramatic, the better, right?).

Not only does her crimped hair make her ponytail look even more voluminous, but it also adds a ’90s-inspired cool-girl vibe. What a way to do a throwback, Grande! Credit: @arianagrande

Here’s a closer look at her ombre pony, which has been secured with a stone grey coloured headband wrap to match her joggers. And it may not be new news anymore, but we gotta say, we’re still crushing on Ariana’s full, blunt fringe. Bang on point as usual, Ariana! Credit: @arianagrande
