At first, back when she played Cat Valentine in Victorious, she sported her bright red locks. But after moving on from the network, her signature ponytail was her go-to style. A lot of fans wondered why that was, and the singer wasn’t shy about revealing the real reason why.

“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… My actual hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down. As annoying as it is for y’all to look at the same hairstyle all the time, it’s all that works for now (and I’m comfortable for the first time in years),” she explained.

It’s so unfortunate that she had to deal with hair breakage, and we can’t blame her for turning to a protective hairstyle that she was comfortable with.

But as of now, it seems like Ariana’s natural hair is growing back beautifully, and we love nothing more than seeing her show it off with brand new styles!
