Ellen DeGeneres has just ditched her signature hairstyle for a new look.

The talk show host debuted a slicked back hairdo on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week instead of her usual pixie cut with bangs, which she’s been rocking for years.

Fans were quick to comment on the look, which she shared on Instagram with a clip from the show in which she talks about Cardi B recently and accidentally sharing her own nudes – but more on that here.

"Ellen! Hold up! Loving the hair!" one Instagram user commented, while another pointed out her new hairstyle looks a lot like her wife, Portia de Rossi’s.
