Ariana Grande showed she is just like us this week when she wondered what Tyra Banks would do to her hair were she ever to be a contestant on America’s Next Top Model.

Ariana tapped into some serious nostalgia for ANTM’s famous makeover episodes, where Tyra’s team would completely transform the look of contestants.

Their exchange started when Tyra shared an editorial image of Ariana, marveling at her ability to smize so perfectly.

In response, Ariana gushed over her love for the iconic supermodel and posed the question on everyone’s mind.

“hi i love u,” she Tweeted. “i always wondered what you’d do w my hair on the makeover episodes. i’m scared to know. but also.  tell me. please. i won’t do it. but tell me please. love u.”

What happened next was nothing short of amazing. In response, Tyra broke it down and revealed that she is such a fan of Ariana’s ponytail that she actually teaches it in her class at Stanford.

“I teach Personal Branding at @StanfordGSB and on day one, my lecture touches on the power of your pony,” Tyra wrote. “An iconic, visual cue to the world that identifies you!”

“You betta not touch that tail,” she added.

Ariana’s response, of course, was perfect.

And there you have it folks — even Tyra agrees that the ponytail needs to stay.
