Ariana Grande's ponytail is almost as famous as she is. The high, tight ponytail has been the singer's trademark look for years. It's been her signature look for so long, in fact, that some critics and even some fans would love nothing more than to see Grande let her hair down and try literally any other style.
Unfortunately for anyone on Team New Style for Ariana, the singer says she still really likes her ponytail and doesn't plan to get rid of it any time soon.
"I feel like there's a thousand different ways to do a ponytail. A million!…It brings me so much joy, honestly," she gushed in an interview with Byrdie. "Every time I put my hair up, it's like a surprise. Like, I forget how much I love it, and then I tie it back and I'm like, 'I love this look! Ooh, girl!' Every time I tie it up is like the first time. It's like true love."
There you have it: True. Love. Oh, and for anyone who would still like to tell Grande how to do her hair, know that she has words for you.
"S**t, you don't like my ponytail?" she said in the interview. "I'm gonna have it two times bigger tomorrow, and higher, tighter, more hair in there too! S**t, I'll crimp it! You ain't seen a crimp like this in 20 years!"
