“my hair” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
In the lyrics to the song, Ariana Grande invites her partner to caress her hair. The way she does it, giving strict instructions, makes us believe that it is a big deal for her. She wants him to feel it just as how he would do with her body. In the second verse of the song, she also says that she never lets people touch it. In real life, Ariana Grande’s ponytail hairstyle is somewhat of an iconic look for her. In the bridge of the song, we find that she lets her hair down (relaxed) for him. This is figuratively Ariana Grande letting her guard down with this person she trusts.
Grande’s hair is an important part of her life, just as anything else, if not even more. Hence, letting someone else touch her hair is Ariana Grande’s way of telling them that they are both important and special to her.
