Ariana Grande Explains Her Ponytail, Turns Out Her Hair Really Is Full Of Secrets

By  | 


So I'm going to trust that we all know Ariana Grande is a talented performer full of magic and wonder. She can sing, act (despite not loving it) and her signature ponytail is the best in the world!

In a rare act, Ariana recently posted a photo on Instagram of her with her hair down only to delete it soon after. What?!?! The conspiracy theories started flying. What is she hiding in her hair? Is her ponytail holding her head onto her body? Is she maybe pulling a Professor Quirrell and hiding Voldemort under there?

After much speculation, she took to Instagram on Sunday to explain and defend her hair situation.

“I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years of playing Cat… as one would assume, that completely destroyed my hair…My real hair is back to brown and I wear extensions but I wear it in a ponytail because my actual air is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down.”

Yikes, that's some harsh treatment for hair. I can't be surprised it got destroyed and I can't blame her for keeping it in a pony tail while she waits for it to get healthy again. But is she hiding Voldermort though?

“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)…So PLEASE gimmie 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.”

This is exactly why I like Ariana. She says this is comfortable and this is what works for her and if we don't like it, that's not her problem. I love it!

I am happy she’s trying to get her hair to a healthy place again. I know how frustrating it can be to wait for your hair to grow out. I didn't start to grown hair until I three years old. But Ariana's right, we should leave her alone about her hair. There are much more important things to talk about like if Voldemort isn't in her hair then where is he?
