Okay, there’s a certain amount of buzz that accompanies any celeb hairstyle change, but when someone with a signature look as recognizable as Ariana Grande’s goes and shakes things up, the fan freakouts are inevitable.

So when Ariana posted some pictures on Instagram of herself with bangs, naturally, we lost it. Yup, her iconic ponytail is now accompanied by some frontal fringe, and she looks seriously adorable.

We got the first inkling of the big change yesterday, when Ariana posted this dark, blurry selfie — the bangs are unmistakable.

Later, she posted this photo, where you can see how the fringe is angled on the sides, giving it a choppier, edgier appearance. We’re into it, especially paired with those acid-wash mom jeans.

And then, finally, Ariana shared a much clearer, close-up shot so that we could all bask in her bangs’ glory.

As Teen Vogue pointed out, Ariana was cast as Penny Pingleton in NBC’s Hairspray Live!, so it’s very possible this hairdo is part of her role. We’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, she looks amazing with this new cut!
