Ariana Grande added a retro twist to her signature ponytail! The singer performed at the Billboard Hot 100 Festival in New York over the weekend with a crimped pony that we need your thoughts on. Get the details ahead on Ari’s latest beauty look, and let us know if you think it was a hit or miss.
Ariana Grande, 23, might just have us convinced we need to dust off our old hair crimper. The “Into You” singer added a bit of ’90s to her beauty look on August 20th by sporting a crimped high ponytail, complete with a scrunchie and stacks of choker necklaces.
While her crimped hair was doing all of the statement-making, the rest of Ari’s beauty look was flawless. Sharing a pic of her longtime makeup artist, Daniel Chinchilla, getting her ready for the show on her Instagram, Arianna showed off a crisp cat eye, long lashes and iridescent highlighted cheekbones. Daniel also added a matte lip to Ari’s look in a soft rose shade that’s so much easier to wear than the usual nudes.
For the hair, Aaron Light pulled Ari’s blonde ombré locks back into a high ponytail that sat just above the crown of her head. Leaving her new bangs out to frame her face, Aaron turned Ariana into the ultimate ’90s girl by adding crimped sections to her pony. Focusing on crimping her hair from the mid-shaft down, Aaron also added an oversized green scrunchie to complete the throwback look.
While Arianna is known for rocking her ponytail, she’s definitely been switching up her look a lot more lately. In the spring, she tried another ’90s trend with her space buns hairstyle, and over the summer, she also got in on the new hoop-accented look that we’ve seen other celebs like Shay Mitchell and Kim Kardashian try.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Ari bringing back a retro look, or should this one stay in the past?
