Ariana Grande isn’t exactly known as a beauty risk-taker. In her decade in the spotlight, the 25-year-old singer has only changed her hair a handful of times, sticking mainly to the signature brunette hair and high ponytail that made her a household name. But that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had interesting looks over the years. From her natural curly locks to her neon-red hair phrase to her recent stint with platinum silver tresses, when Grande experiments, she goes big.
