15 Favourite Ariana Grande Hairstyles: From Her Iconic Ponytail To Her Bleach Blonde

If there's anyone who know a thing or two about rocking an iconic hairstyle, it's Ariana Grande. From her signature high ponytail to her platinum blonde hair transformation, the girl's always on top of her hair game!

More often than not, she's wearing her iconic Ariana Grande ponytail, but that's definitely not the only hairstyle she rocks.

We've seen everything from space buns to soft waves and pierced ponytails – and we love it! She's definitely someone to look up to if you're in need of some major hair inspiration.

Here are just a few of our favourite Ariana Grande hairstyles from over the years:

The ICONIC Ariana Grande Ponytail

Of course, the first on our list HAS to be the classic and iconic Ariana Grande ponytail. The slicked-back high ponytail is one of our favourite looks and it's definitely her signature style.

The ICONIC Ariana Grande Ponytail

She executes it perfectly every single time and it's a look we've seen her in countless times. But we're not complaining!

Studded Ponytail

This is more of an edgy vibe for Ariana, but we're still loving it! More than once, we've seen her put a twist on her classic high ponytail and add in some metal rings to the top of her hair.

It's super stylish and we definitely want to see more of it!

Soft Waves

Ariana Grande's hair isn't always slicked and straight, she rocks the waves too. On her wedding day, she wore her hair in super soft curls and looked absolutely stunning – we don't know how she does it!

But one thing's for sure, she looks fantastic doing it.

Silver Half-up Half-down Ponytail

Silver Half-up Half-down Ponytail

Another classic Ari hairstyle is a half-up half-down ponytail. We're pretty convinced she might have even been the one to inspire us all to start rocking this look.

She first brought us her silver hair back in 2015 when she released her "Focus" music video, but she's brought it back a few times since then. We definitely wouldn't mind if she kept it around a little longer!

Crimped Ponytail

We all love a crimped ponytail – it's 80's fashion at its finest. Ari's crimped loose ponytail is definitely something to add to your hairstyle inspiration list.

The result is a stunning high pony tail that looks perfectly effortless. If you're looking for some major hair inspiration, this is definitely the style to try!

Ponytail with a Bow

This wouldn't be a list of our favourite Ariana Grande hairstyles if we didn't talk about her obsession with bows! And we're not talking cute, little bows either – we're talking big, statement bows.

She loves wearing bows and ribbons paired with her classic high ponytail. If you're looking for a way to add some fun and unique flair to your hair, then this is definitely the look to try!

Space Buns

We've seen Ariana in space buns a few times before, letting her natural hair show through. It's a super cute look, and we can't get enough of it!

Space buns are a really fun hairstyle and they're perfect switching up your style, just like Ari!

Double Pig Tails

Ariana loves to wear her hair in pigtails in a whole variety of different styles. But her classic high double pig tails are one of our favourites for sure. Her super long hair falls perfectly into two cute pigtails, and it looks absolutely stunning.

Ponytail with a Fringe

We'll never forget the moment when Ariana debuted her voluminous bangs. Whether you loved it or hated it, it was a major statement and definitely something to talk about.

With her hair in the classic high ponytail, Ariana added her fringe to the mix, and we just couldn't get enough!

High 90s Ponytail

Just like everyone else recently, Ariana has been rocking the 90s ponytail look. It's definitely a classic, and she pulls it off perfectly!

Combining the sleek fringe and long ponytail is genius, and it's definitely a style we'll be trying!

70's Winged Fringe

As if we couldn't love Ariana anymore, she went ahead and debuted her amazing 70s-inspired winged fringe as part of her 'chapter 3' of her r.e.m launch.

Not only did she have a new fringe, but she was wearing her hair down, too – a rare glimpse into Ari's hair!

Bouncy Caramel Brown Curls

Ariana's caramel brown curls were a major hit, and we're still not over them.  She pulled off the style perfectly, and we can't help but swoon.

The gorgeous highlighted caramel brown shade and the soft curls were an absolute dream!

Double-Braided Fringe

This ethereal look is one of our most favourite Ariana Grande hairstyles - the double-braided fringe. She debuted the look in the 'Off The Table' music video with The Weeknd, and it's something we'll never forget!

The gorgeous double braids framing her face are just too beautiful.

Blonde Beehive

She's done the 90s and 80s, and 70s, so it's only right she tries out something from the 60s too! Ariana's blonde beehive look is something we can all take some serious inspo from.

Ombre Pigtails

Now we know ombre hair is a controversial topic, but Ariana's ombre pigtails speak for themselves. The big, bouncy pigtails are something we've seen before, but with added ombre highlights - it's perfect!

Take a small section of your ponytail at wrap it around the hair band to hide it, using a bobby pin to pin it down.

Is Ariana's hair natural?

Most of the time, Ariana does wear extensions to get her super long hair, but her actual hair is still gorgeous!.

Why is Ariana Grande's hair always tied up?

She commented that the reason her hair is always tied up and why she wears extensions is due to the damage her hair has been through over the years.
