Ariana Grande's Beauty Evolution, from Cute Broadway Kid to Sophisticated Songstress

by Casey Lewis

From fresh-faced Broadway ingénue to chart-topping pop star, cover girl Ariana Grande is no stranger to dramatic entrances and exits. As Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon's Victorious and iCarly, she dyed her hair bright red to resemble a red velvet cupcake-her bubbly character's favorite sweet snack. After launching her singing career in 2012, Ariana shed her stoplight hair for equally show-stopping ombre highlights. What's stayed constant? The triple threat has never stepped onto the red carpet, stage, or sidewalk without totally flawless makeup.

The Sam & Cat star told us this year, "I don't try to do things because they will look a certain way. I try to keep it real with my fans." In the same interview, she even admitted to us that her hair is only about 10% authentically hers. Yes, Ariana is picture-perfect and pitch-perfect, but don't let that intimidate you-she's also totally real.
