Ariana Grande traded in her iconic ponytail for a stylish bob Thursday afternoon. The singer took to Instagram to share her new ‘do. While Grande’s latest look is certainly representative of a new chapter, we will cherish the four years we spent with her most signature accessory.

After expressing that her hair was severely damaged after bleaching and dying it for her roles on Victorious and Sam & Cat, the singer started wearing her hair in the high ponytail that we all know and love today. She also recently expressed on Twitter that her ponytail was a constant source of pain.

In combination with those two things, sometimes people just need a change. While we fully support Ariana’s incredible new image, we have to marvel at the legacy of Grande’s high-pony before we lay her to rest for good. 

Where it all began:

While Grande definitely sported the high pony a few times before “Problem,” this was the moment when we all know she was here to stay.

Duh.
