Talk about a new look!
On Sunday, Ariana Grande FLOORED her 43.5 million followers on Instagram and let down her high ponytail so that her natural, curly hair could be free. FABOOSH!

We think she looks absolutely gorgeous with her natural hair down.
Though we know the pop princess has been waiting quite some time to show the world her real locks — since her signature (and necessary) up-do has received its fair share of criticism in the past.
Previously, she revealed that for her role on the Nickelodeon hits Victorious and Sam & Cat she completely destroyed her hair from dying it.
"I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years of playing Cat. I wear extensions but I wear it in a ponytail because my actually hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.
So as annoying as it is for y'all to have to look at the same hairstyle 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.""
Though some days we do miss that bright red hair. Only some days.
However, it seems that this is no longer the case as the Love Me Harder singer is flaunting her mane loud and proud on the picture sharing site. Bravo!
Not mention her fans are LOVING the look as much as we do.
One fan wrote:
"OMG PLEASE WEAR YOUR HAIR LIKE THIS FOR THE REST OF YOU LIFE DAMN MOM."
HA! We love the use of all caps in that particular message (above) — it was totally necessary.
Another follower commented:
"You need to wear your hair like this ALWAYS!!!"
Aww! We agree with your fans Miz Grande.
Unfortunately, the pint-sized diva was back to her classic look only a few hours later as she posted another snap (below) to IG:
We hope Ari brings back the curls sooner than later because we think this look is both youthful and beautiful on her. Way to slay.
What do U think?? Do U like her ponytail or her curly hair better?!
SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
