Kelly Ripa, who's had long blond hair for the longest time, debuted a new shorter bob haircut Tuesday morning on "Live With Kelly and Michael."
"Back in the saddle........with a new cut!" Ripa tweeted in the early morning hours after the Labor Day holiday.
She joked with cohost Michael Strahan about his look compared to hers after a two-week break: "You went two weeks with no haircut, and I went two weeks with four haircuts."
Reaction from fans on Twitter was overwhelmingly positive, except for a handful of people who wondered why Ripa's hair was such big news. Hey, in the face of what's going on internationally, why not take a break for a little style dish, right?
At a Labor Day weekend gathering, Ripa said, Katie Couric even took time to restyle the 'do, because she thought it looked too "newscaster-y." So she made it more edgy.
