Ariana Grande had quite the weekend. On Friday, February 8th, she released her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next, to (mostly) critical acclaim. She also released the next video from the album for “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” and publicly decided to skip the 2019 Grammys due to conflicts with the show’s producers, even though she won her first-ever Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.
But the most charming part of Ariana’s weekend? Tweeting an old newspaper article that showed the now-25 year old singer had been struck by a hockey puck twice (!) by the age of five.
Fans were quick to notice that in the decades-old photo of Grande, the singer sported some pretty adorable curls.
“if i’m honest ….. this is still exactly what i look like without lashes and my pony,” the singer wrote. “anyone who knows me knows me knows ….. like …. i’m twenty five. i was five here. the only difference now is that hand now says bbq grill finger.”
Of course, because inquiring minds want to know, fans asked for photos of Grande’s natural hair, which is almost always hidden underneath her famous ponytail. To our delight, Grande obliged and posted an adorable video of her natural hair. And we were surprised to see a curly bob.
Though, a quick search of vintage Ariana would also reveal her natural ringlets.
Ariana explained that dyeing her hair blonde last year left it in pretty bad shape and she’s trying to grow her hair long enough to show off her curls’ full potential.
Until then, we’ll enjoy Ariana Grande’s famous pony and wait patiently for the official public reveal of her curly ‘do.
