It's hard to think of a time when Ariana Grande's hair wasn't synonymous with her now iconic high ponytail. Nearly a decade ago, before she was a chart-topping pop sensation, the star once rocked styles that ranged from voluminous raven-hued curls to super straight fiery locks. Several number one hit songs and millions of fans later, it seemed that the star was following one hair motto: The brighter the career, the higher the ponytail. 

The No Tears Left To Cry singer looks almost unrecognizable without her signature look, but it's clear that her hairstyles in the early days of her career were a sign of her playful, risk-taking personality. 

Believe it or not, Grande only started sporting her well-known look in 2014, switching from brunette curls to honey-hued half-up locks before she'd settle on the hairstyle we've all come to know and love. Click through to see the singer's hair journey, including every different cut, color, and curl.
