People keep asking why mega-star Ariana Grande won't switch it up?
They're talking about her signature high ponytail, which continues to appear EVERY time the petite pop princess belts out another hit. Most recently, she showed off the high pony performing at Rockefeller Center on August 29th for the Today show.
Well, so what?
Ariana is cute as a button, and the 60's go-go hairstyle along with her often worn white, go-go boots are working for her.
But there is a real reason why Ariana is comfy with her signature ponytail, and she explained it on her Instagram site way back in January. Yet critics keep picking on the star:
...."Since people give me such a hard time about my hair I thought I’d take the time to explain the whole situation to everybody.
"I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years of playing Cat [on Victorious]…as one would assume, that completely destroyed my hair. I now wear a wig on Sam & Cat. My real hair is back to brown and 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. I tried wigs, they looked RIDICULOUS. Tried a weave because I am working on a new project and want to try some different looks and literally wanted to rip my scalp off.
"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.
"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. There are way way way more important things. Love ya’ll very much."
