Ariana Grande is pretty popular these days. And even though I wouldn't consider myself a mega fan or anything, there is one thing about Miss Grande that I am pretty aware of: That. Hair. Oh, and that she has a new, celebrity boyfriend. What can I say? I keep up with hard news stories. Even if, like me, you're not as familiar with Ariana Grande as other stars, it's safe to say that soon we all will be; she's only getting more and more popular. 

But there was a time for Ariana Grande before her hit songs, famous hair, and cool boyfriend. And there are photos from that time, and you will not recognize the "Problem" singer without her signature half up ponytail, that's for sure. Here are 11 examples of times Ariana Grande looked... well, nothing like Ariana Grande.
