For many decades now, Ellen DeGeneres has generally maintained the same look. Her short blond hair is basically iconic and it's hard to imagine her looking any different.
The show host recently unveiled what her natural hair looked like, and no, it wasn't blonde.
Ellen kicked off season 17 of her hit daytime show and revealed that she experienced a disastrous dye job in the spring which forced her to shave her hair.
The dye had caused her hair to start falling out so the 61-year-old media personality decided that it was best to cut the whole thing off.

She revealed on the show that she wasn't sure what her natural hair would look like when she grew it out because she had always dyed her hair blonde for a very long time.
I'd never seen my natural color. I'd been coloring my hair for so long.
It turned out that her natural hair was a silver-flecked color and she took a photo to share with her audience.
Ellen said she considered leaving her short silver hair the way it was until one of the show's producers convinced her to go back to blonde before the new season started. This meant that by the time she returned for the first episode of season 17, she was back to her signature blonde locks.
This didn't stop people from commenting about her silver-haired appearance. Some thought she looked much too masculine with the shorter hairstyle.
She was compared to male stars like Eminem and Justin Bieber.
Which of the looks is your favorite? The short silver hair or her regular blonde look?
