Ariana Grande left fans in a state of shock this week after cutting off her iconic flowing ponytail in favour a new look.

The 25-year-old singer, who split up from her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson last month, debuted her new post-break-up hairdo on Instagram yesterday (15th November). Fresh from her chart-topping reign on the number one spot with her break-up anthem ‘thank u, next’, Grande celebrated her achievement with a new look: a short, blunt bob. Ariana’s long locks have long been a staple of her pop princess image, and for fans who are used to seeing her pull her hair back into a sleek ponytail, the drastic change was a lot to take in.

Fans aren’t too keen on the new look, and took to Twitter to express how surprised they all are. “Listen. @ArianaGrande chopped her hair off. This is not just a new chapter in her life but in all of our lives,” wrote on fan on Twitter. “ariana grande …. with short hair !!???? 2018 is … insane,” said another in response to Ari’s drastic new ‘do.
