A lot of fans commented how the new sleek style is reminiscent of her wife Portia de Rossi’s hairdo from several years ago.
The change comes after months of allegations of a “toxic” work environment on set. DeGeneres did address the claims during her opening monologue in the season 18 premiere of the hit daytime talk show.
“As you may have heard, this summer there were accusations of a toxic work environment at our show, and then there was an investigation,” the television personality said. “I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously, and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected.
“I am a work in progress,” she concluded her apology.
DeGeneres has been Hollywood royalty for years. She catapulted onto the scene as a stand-up comedian before starring in her own hit sitcom, Ellen. In 1997, DeGeneres shocked the world when she came out as a proud lesbian, since becoming a staunch supporter of LGBTQ+ rights.
She started hosting her award-winning talk show in 2003. She tied the knot with Ally McBeal alum Rossi in 2008.
DeGeneres is known around the world for her humor, her fabulous dance moves, but also known for her iconic pixie cut that she rocked for years. Like most, the 62-year-old has changed her hairstyle several times over the years — one just as chic as the other.
One thing we noticed is, as DeGeneres got older, the hair got shorter.
OK! takes a look at DeGeneres’ fun and funky hair evolution over the years.
A Chic Slicked Back Look
DeGeneres debuted her chic new hairstyle in season 18 of her hit daytime talk show. The sleek look really works for the host, as she looks to shed her "toxic" workplace image.
A Very Short Look
The 62-year-old daytime talker took to her Instagram to advocate support for Breonna Taylor while rocking a very short hairdo. This is probably the shortest we've ever seen DeGeneres' hair.
The Iconic Pixie Cut
When you think of "Queen of Nice," this is what usually comes to mind. DeGeneres rocked the iconic pixie cut for several years. Many people go into the salon to ask for the "Ellen," and this is what they get.
Her Variation Of The ‘Bob’
Before Kate Gosselin, DeGeneres rocked the flowy swooped bang look. Here the comedian is pictured with her wife after taking home the award for Favorite Talk Show at the 35th annual People's Choice Awards in 2009.
Stand-Up Comedian Ellen
This is the early Ellen years. Here she is pictured in 2000, coming out of a L.A. nightclub with none other than The X-Files star Gillian Anderson.
