Ariana Grande On Hair ‘Give Me A Break’

ariana-instagram (3)
Ariana Grande Facebook post about her hair: ‘Since people give me such a hard time about my hair I thought I’d take the time to explain the whole situation to everybody. I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first 4 years of playing Cat.. as one would assume, that completely destroyed my hair.

I now wear a wig on Sam & Cat. My real hair is back to brown and I wear extensions but I wear it in a pony tail because my actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down. I tried wigs, they looked RIDICULOUS.

Tried a weave because I am working on a new project and want to try some different looks and literally wanted to rip my scalp off. So as annoying as it is for y’all to have to look at the same hair style all the time, it’s all that works for now (AND I’m comfortable for the first time in years)..

And trust me, it’s even more difficult for me to have to wait forever for my natural hair to grow back and to have to wear more fake hair than every drag queen on earth combined. So PLEASE gimme a break about the hair (or just don’t look at me lol). IT’S JUST HAIR AFTER ALL. There are way way way more important things. Love y’all very much.’

    I guess things just got real lol.

  • Emmatome

    This is ridiculous. Hair. We’re making a big deal out of her hair! Anyway. At least she explained it. But she shouldn’t have. No one should have to justify their choices like this.

  • threelittlebirds

    I just don’t understand though. Why didn’t she just wear a wig while filming victorious? Then she wouldn’t have to go through this whole process.

    • iWizard

      I guess she never had any experience with alternative methods. It was her first role, after all and she probably just wanted to please everyone to keep her spot.

      • Godney

        Yeah but you would guess that the person who did that to her would tell her “hey your hair is dying you should wear a wig” or someone close to her. Everybody knows if you bleach your hair it will die

    • Shailene Woodley

      Sometimes in the industry you don’t really have a choice. She was young and new to the whole thing, if she turned around and refused it could have been bad for her.

      • Godney

        Maybe she was just scared if she said no she could be fired… it happens

    • Clauber

      Plus… she is overreacting, look at Ashley Tisdale then she turned brunette and problem resoult, it is not a big deal she is making it bigger

  • bae

    uhm actually shes non stop tweeting about how she hates her hair and shit. shes just getting reaction?

    • anonymous

      yawn and this

  • sitdown

    then why the fuck are you writing a long ass essay about it ?

  • iWizard

    Hahaha she’s kind of funny.

  • Cici

    They really should have put her in a wig to begin with. That is awful to do someone’s hair. Her real hair is probably barely longer than her ears. I mean i get why she is all about the extensions, but it’s that same boring style that people keep talking about…not the extensions. She is so self conscious of her hair, and I get why kinda, but damn just stop talking about it. If you really are that comfortable, let it go.

  • cerenagee

    yikes. that effing sucks.

  • Zaina777

    Liz GIllies <3

    As I said before this girl is so annoying and into herself. She really didn't have to explain anything to us especially that in depth. I truly think she thinks she is better than everyone else.

    Also why didn't she immediately stop dying her hair a different color the second that it got damaged. That is what most people do.

    She chose to keep on dyeing her hair to a new color on a constant basis. She should have just worn a wig the whole time. No one would even give a shit if she did wear one for we probably wouldn't even notice.

    This is all on her. She chose to damage her hair. She really has no one else to blame but herself.

    • Cici

      she may have been in a contract to do so for her character, who knows.

    • soft ghetto

      she did a youtube video right when she got her character for cat and said that in the contract nickleodeon is allowed to do anything they want with her hair.

  • Cici

    Liz is gorgeous btw.

  • Duckyhoward15

    What about hair transplant or whatever they do to make hair grow back ?

  • anon

    I knew her hair was damaged. Her whole demeanor has changed. Watch her earlier covers when she had nice hair like her rolling in the deep by Adele cover. She couldnt stop looking at herself. Now she has lower confidence and is more humble. I guess that’s karma. Love her though.

  • laura

    Can’t she just cut it? My hair was severely damaged as well and I lost huge amounts of hair, don’t even ask me why, so I cut a pixie. Yeah, growing it out is a bitch but I have a different hair cut every single week which is a lot of fun as well.
    People are so whiney jeez, it’s just hair.

    • Queen Amanda Bynes

      it is cut, its short. she just has clip-ins extentions in.she took the weave out

      • laura

        Why didn’t she say so?
        I’m glad she did cut it then, that’s the only way to get your hair healthy again.

        • Queen Amanda Bynes

          she some what did here ‘it’s even more difficult for me to have to wait forever for my natural hair to grow back ‘. i guess it must be bad if she doesnt want to show how her real hair looks.

          • laura

            Thanks for explaining :)
            Well, it definitely must be past her ears to be able to get extensions though so it can’t be incredibly bad. But it probably looks very odd.

          • Queen Amanda Bynes

            i hope so, i wonder why she didnt make it really short like miley or Victoria Beckham then grow it out.she would look good with a short hair cut and it be better for her hair.

          • laura

            idk I think a bob would suit her better :)
            I really don’t recommend cutting your hair in a pixie since it’s a pain in the ass to grow it out haha I don’t regret it though.

          • soft ghetto

            her hair was about shoulder length when she first started victorious so I think that’s prob the length she has now.

          • arianastan

            no it isnt , if it was shoulder length she would wear it out. her REAL ponytail is about an inch or two at the most, her hair was damaged and broke off. what about this post dont you get?

            there are some photos of her where her real hair pokes out and you can see it and it is very short. it is about as long as her ears

          • ohmyglob

            Aggressive much? Calm down . It’s not that serious lol

          • soft ghetto

            sorry, I know how important ariana grande’s hair is to you I didn’t mean to offend your leader.

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    People were finally over her hair, then she brought it up again when she got the weave.She should keep things to herself sometimes , because she makes it into a bigger deal than it is

    • Guest

      Agreed .I think she is beautiful and only think about her hair when she brings it up.

    • XaskTaylorX

      “It’s just hair”! ;) Lol

  • adele

    LMAO @ Ariana. Can she please contact Chaz Dean, the Wen guy, about her hair lol!!!!!!!

    • abc

      No, I don’t think that guys and his products are good

  • g

    honestly – poor girl….

    I totally understand how self conscious this must make her. Believe it or not people , being a performer doesn’t mean you are automatically comfortable in your own skin. She seems like she has a bit of insecurity issues. Just because singing is her passion and the consequently means that she is in the spotlight most of the time…doesnt mean that her insecurities just dissapear!

    Heck, I wear a ton of makeup because I have terrible acne scars and it’s something that I am very insecure about. I find that a lot of people think I’m just very into myself and stuck up where in actuality – I am just super insecure about my natural skin. I wish I had the confidence to go without it! And when people constantly question why I always want my full face of makeup on I get very defensive and explain myself as well!

    I can only imagine how Ari feels. She probably wishes she could go around with her natural hair but her insecurities are holding her back. To have people constantly critisizing her for wearing her hair a certain way only makes it worse! She’s a sweetheart I love her

    • laura

      Oh me too, sweetie. I got a lot of pimples because of my lactose and gluten intolerance and it left awful scars on my forehead so I know how you feel. But I now have this serum by Kiehl’s and it really has helped my skin so far :) it’s kind of expensive so perhaps try to get some samples first and see if it helps you.

  • Narry Sex

    I love her and not her hair

  • Marina And My Diamonds

    Just wear it out no matter how short it is or how damaged it might be. She can still style her damaged hair without damaging it any further. It’s just hair. It grows.

  • VIP Guest

    The people complaining and full of attitude must be very young, I could see that there was something up but it’s no biggie. The hairstyle works for her and it’s ironic that she’s a Chanel fanatic because there a French actress who used to be a spokeperson for Chanel, wore her hair exactly like Ariana does when she was younger, Her name is Catherine Denuve. In the quest for a return to healthier hair, Ariana should check with a nutitionist and make sure she’s eating nutritionally well. This makes a big difference in hair & skin quality. Is she still vegan? You can eat delicious complete 3 course meals on a vegan diet. None of that eating only lettuce & kale business and food that looks like crap. I’m glad she’s explained the situation fully but I’m sure some people will find something else to b*tch about. No worries, many of us support Ariana in her journey. Best wishes.

    • Girly

      OMG This! You gotta eat balanced meals. Technically you are still growing until 25. The body need proper nourishment. You hair needs protein to grow. Ariana should never use permanent dyes on her hair again. If she wants a color change use a temporary rinse or extensions/wigs. The wig on Sam & Cat looks so real and fits so well. She should try some new styles too like updos, etc..

  • Queen Amanda Bynes

    Amanda Bynes hair was bald in May and and about eight moths later her real hair is about shoulder length and her extensions look good. If Ari waits a few months and chills with the dye her hair will be back to normal soon

    • Cici

      She looks so good

    • laura

      I’d say her hair is chin length, there’s no way in hell your hair can be shoulder length after only 8 months. Not even my hair which grows abnormally fast.
      But she looks absolutely amazing and I seriously love her hair colour!

      • anon

        her real hair is the light blond shorter pieces which almost reaches her shoulder, but i think her hair was short in May and not say its longer than chin, its at the end of her neck, almost touching her shoulders.

        a few months ago her real hair was dark before she had extentions

        • laura

          Definitely looks like it’s between chin and shoulder length in the pictures you’ve shown me. My pony tail is the same length it looks like so I’m pretty sure about that one haha

      • XaskTaylorX

        Would you like my hair? It grows back fast! I guess I’m the only one whose hair grows back in a couple of months. Lol. Too thick!

        • laura

          Same here :o
          One of my sides was ‘shaven’ like Miley’s (I cut it before her though) because it just looked really rad that way and now it’s six months later and it’s below my chin haha
          And it sucks because my hair is so thick so I always have to style it if I don’t want it to look funny :p



  • Anon

    I find her really annoying…she seems to make a lot of things a bigger deal than they really are.

  • TheLostChord

    This reminds me of that scene from the Princess Diaries after Mia gets her makeover, and she takes off her a in class, and everyone starts freaking out about her hair. I mean, what? I’ve never seen that movie…… Psh ….

    • lol

      LOL I loved Lily.

  • meepxoxo

    She could always go get keratin treatments for her hair.

  • Yasmine

    I dye my hair red since I was 15, I’m 22 now, and my hair is not damaged, I don’t have to cut it or wear extensions or anything. and I don’t have half the money she has, so I guess she could’ve taken care of her hair.

  • Clauber


    • Silver

      lol… IKR?

  • Rosemary

    Aw. I bleached my hair ONCE and I’m never doing it again. It was so damaged and I had to cut it all off. I understand what she’s going through, it sucks but it’s hair.

  • @nn@mmm

    Tom Felton still has hair, and he had to bleach it for over 10 years, and his hair is beautiful. He never made a big deal out of it.

    • yuna

      Because he still has hair..get it?



  • in jesus name i pray amen

    preach it Ari! Seriously tho, she’s telling the truth. I think she just got fed up with all the hate she gets — you may say no1 actually cared that much, but they REALLY did… EVERYONE always comments about it so idky ppl are saying no one cares.

    I bleached my hair during ~ombre~ season (my hair is typically dark brown) and it literally FUCKED THE SHIT out of my hair… it was nappy, dry, brittle, split ends galore & looked SO unhealthy. I conditioned it, put oils on it etc. I will never bleach my hair again. I have straight hair, so I always curl it a bit to give it a wave, which only FURTHER killed it. I know what Ari is saying… hair takes time to grow back and it sucks. I cut my ombre off and got clip-ins til it grew back to the length I loved (below my chest)

  • in jesus name i pray amen

    One thing tho I dont get with Ari… weaves are SO EXPENSIVE (not that she’s poor or anything) and so many black women have them bc they cant really use clip ins as easily (cuz their roots have to be straightened to blend in), SO… suck it up. Pat that weave girl, helps relieve the itch & annoyance.

    • Cici

      Lol I think she just has some extensions…not that there is much difference. I honestly think she should rock her natural hair

    • rachelfarsh

      i have used clip ins before and i have to tease my roots to put them in because they are so straight.I have a black friend who also uses them and she doesnt have to do anything to put them in because her roots are curlier and thicker than mine, straightening your roots would make the clip ins slip out.

      • in jesus name i pray amen

        ummm okay…. does your black friend have curly extensions or?… That would look ratchet to have curly AF roots and then all of a sudden straight hair. My friend who is black has to straighten the roots of her hair then hide the extensions under it.

        Also I have thick hair, so I dont really have to tease my hair to keep them from falling out. They hold pretty well for me… *shrugs*

  • tbh

    Arianas hair is not growing back because she is malnourished/anorexic. Hair falling out is a comon symptom of girls who dont eat healthy even though she claims she healthy..

    • Silver

      mmm… stirring something?

    • boystan


    • ariannaistoodamnskinny

      OMG right! You have a valid point and anyone who denies that well look at the photo of her hugging Liz, Ari’s arms are way skinnier than Liz’s… and Ariana used to look healthier (google before and after photos of Ariana’s body)

  • boystan

    i’ve never seen anyone give her shit bc of her hair it’s her quincianera dresses that bother me

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      HAHAHHAHAH she has passed that phase!!!! PRAISE THE MEXICAN LORD. If only she would stop wearing those skater skirts & crop top combos EVERY day of her life….

  • boystan

    i like her hair it looks nice

  • boystan

    “it’s even more difficult for me to have to wait forever for my natural hair to grow back and to have to wear more fake hair than every drag queen on earth combined” BYE lmao

    • in jesus name i pray amen

      I CRIED.

  • lol

    Her red hair on Victorious looked like period blood lbr

  • anon

    You can see how her hair is in her most recent hair tutorial

    • Marina And My Diamonds
