It looks like Ariana Grande is getting into character. The Grammy-winning singer touched down in the U.K. to start rehearsals for her role as Glinda the Good Witch in the upcoming Wicked movie. Ari announced her involvement in the film, alongside Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba, back in November of last year, and fans have been gagging to get an update ever since. The live-action movie isn't set to be released until Christmas 2024, so we've got a while to wait, but to tide us over, Ari shared some teasers of her first days in the U.K., by posting pics of hot-air balloons and the scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz on her Instagram Stories a couple of days ago.

And while so far there's been no sight of Glinda's Swarovski-covered star wand, or petal-tiered blue ball gown, Ari might have given us a glimpse of her ice blonde hair for the role. Tucked between yesterday's Instagram Stories, the singer shared a snap of herself with music producers and songwriters Ilya Salamanzadeh and Savan Kotecha. In it, Grande rocks waist-length platinum blonde tumbling waves with her hair tied half up into her signature high pony.

While it's unclear whether the photo is a throwback, it's giving us an idea of what Grande's rendition of Glinda might look like. We imagine the singer will want to put her own spin on the role and switch out Glinda's tight ringlets for something a little more contemporary. Or there's every chance she's going method in the run-up to filming by switching her natural brunette for the Good Witch's trademark bright blonde curls.

Either way, we're loving the shade on Ariana Grande and we doubt this will be the last we see of the singer with icy strands.
