The girl known for her super-high, super-straight ponytail has traded in her sleek onyx locks. Kat Graham hit the red carpet arrivals of Wango Tango this weekend sporting a brand new ’do. The “Put Your Graffiti On Me” singer has ditched her dark hair in favor of a honey blonde (and what looks like ombre) dye-job. While this new, front-falling ponytail is equally gravity-defying, she’s taken a cue from the perm-tastic late ’80s and added some mega-volume curls.
Kat was at the forefront of the sleek pony game, which has since grown to include Aussie MC Iggy Azalea and even Katy Perry, so we’re keeping our eyes on this springy ringlet look. We’ve seen it resurface before but mainly as big free-flowing curls, not styled in an updo like Kat does here. The curly pony makes an even bolder statement and winks harders at its retro origins. I mean, Kat is, like, a swipe of blue-and-purple eyeshadow away from being a real-life “Barbie and the Rockers” doll or a young Whitney Houston circa “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and we’re pretty obsessed with it.
