Ariana Grande's nostalgic hair accessory is giving 2014 Ari
Ariana Grande is no stranger to cutesy, it's part of her brand and she does it so well. That's why we were so glad to see one of her OG go-to accessories make a comeback in her latest TikTok. The musician was announcing the arrival of her makeup brand r.e.m beauty in Sephora EU, but all we could look at was the slithers of bow peaking out any time Ari looked left or right.
Willing her head to turn just a fraction more, we still got to see the neat preppy, black bow that fastened her trademark ponytail. It's a deviation from her usual ultra-long ponies, with a bobbing, glossy blonde, shoulder blade-skimming uptown look that recalls Blair Waldorf. If Blair was the blonde one that is. And what a terrifying parallel universe what would be.
But Miss Blair wasn't the only one rocking bows and ribbons back in the early 10s, when Ariana and her world famous ponytail first stepped out from (Sam &) Cat's shadow on Nickelodeon with razzle red hair dye. Back then, her bow was part of the package.
This hairstyle is a particular 2013 timewarp that might remind you of her The Way music videowith the late Mac Miller – my god, I must have watched that video 6758 times.
It's not the first time Ari has brought back the bow of recent either. The singer jumped on Tiktok not too long ago with a soft half-up style, fastened with a rich autumnal brown ribbon to go with her retro outfit.
The bow transcends eras and ages, and is a nifty, versatile accessory across hairstyles and current aesthetics – so tie it up!
