Ariana Grande is getting back together with her signature hairstyle, and fans are already losing their minds. The pop star has tried a few new looks over the last few years, but none are quite as iconic as the half-up, half-down ponytail—consider it part of the Ari starter pack, which also includes oversized sweatshirts and dreamy makeup from her beauty line, REM.
Grande has been teasing the release of a limited edition line of REM Beauty cosmetics inspired by “Thank U, Next” on TikTok since January 14. To the tune of an Elle Woods quote from Legally Blonde remix, Grande introduced the “utmost importance plumping lip gloss—xl,” an extra-shiny lip gloss that made her lips look reflective. There’s something nostalgic about the simple tube of gloss, which is reminiscent of something you would find at Claire’s in 2008, but so, so much better.
As exciting as a new REM collection is, the real star of the show was Ariana Grande’s honey-blonde hair (preparation for her role as Glinda in the upcoming Wicked movie) pulled back in a throwback style. Half of her golden locks were pulled into a defined ponytail, while the rest of her hair fell over her shoulders. It’s a look that Grande hasn’t sported in quite some time, and fans of the Positions singer are freaking out.
