Ariana Grande Finally Let Her Hair Down (Literally)

The pint-sized, chart-topping songstress Ariana Grande is best known for two things: an impressive vocal range (even if it sometimes prohibits us from understanding the actual words she's singing) and a perpetually perfect beauty look.
Yes, even in selfies, you'll rarely see Ariana without her face turned to the side, her mouth in a slight smirk, and her ponytail secured high atop her head. In shoots for major magazines, her mane always looks full — surrounding her petite frame like a giant, hairy halo. (Hairlo?) "I use my hair as a mask, as a shield," she once told V. "I hide behind it, and it's what keeps me."
That's why, when Ariana emerged earlier today sans pony — opting instead for a flattering, half-up style — it was a major moment. Who knows? It could catapult her into her next chapter of world domination. Maybe, she's stronger than she's been before, and this is the part when she breaks free, 'cuz she can't resist it no more. (Sorry, I had to.)
Do you prefer Ms. Grande with her hair up or down?
