The world complained a lot about Ariana Grande’s single-minded obsession with the pony, or half-pony, or pony-with-so-many-extensions-that-it-LOOKS-like-a-half-pony (for this post’s purposes, I’m lumping them all together). But how bad WAS it? I took a sampling of her appearances this year just to see whether she’s really stuck in a rut, or we just THINK she is. What hair makeover would YOU give her?┬áPersonally, I’d go with a bob. Something a little angular to give her some edge. And I’d take out about four pounds of the fake stuff which would still leave half of it in there if she thinks she needs the volume.
