It's an aesthetic rule true for millennials and beyond: the closer the couple, the more harmonized the look. So it should come as no surprise that, as Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande continue to commemorate their engagement with ample outings and endless Instagram shots, a makeover in keeping with the pop star's playful(and changeable) beauty tendencies has emerged. Earlier this week, Davidson stepped out in New York City having exchanged his mop of boyish brunette (he is 24 years-old after all) for a bleached blonde buzz cut reminiscent of one of 2017's most salient trends.
A love note in the form of an above-neck shift—one worthy of Zayn Malik's chimerical, event-reflective shearing—could be seen as appropriate, if not slightly nauseating (cue Seth Rogen's virtual eye roll on a social share in June), given the slightly more offbeat look makes a better match to Grande's menu of space buns and interminable lengths, which have been known to swing in shades of lilac, silver, and platinum. Considering that the fellow, recently engaged couple Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin already enjoy matching manes (though diverging opinions when it comes to facial hair), perhaps the Davidson/Grande union will double as the romance accompanied by an increasingly visual metamorphose. Just consider it a present tense take on the engagement ring.
