Fans React To Ellen DeGeneres' New Slicked Back Hairstyle

The year 2020 seems to be the year for some people to try out new looks and styles to see what they like and what suits them. After all, for most of us, if we don't like the new look we can just hide ourselves away under the guise of quarantine until it grows out!

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres doesn't have that luxury, so when she debuted a brand new style, she was all in!

Ellen is famous for a lot of things.

Her talk show, her voice work, and, lately, even some controversy might come to mind when you think about Ellen.

After several months off the air, Ellen recently returned to the studio to resume the taping of her show.

On September 21, she returned rocking her usual look and, as always, she kicked things off with a monologue.

Naturally, she addressed the toxic workplace allegations that came to light over the summer.

"This summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened," Ellen began in front of her virtual audience.

"We have had a lot of conversations over the last few weeks about the show, the workplace and what we want for the future. We have made the necessary changes and today we are starting a new chapter."

"Being known as the 'be kind' lady is a tricky position to be in," she continued. "So let me give you some advice out there if anybody's thinking of changing their title or giving yourself a nickname, do not go with the 'be kind' lady. Don't do it. The truth is I am that person that you see on TV."

Beyond the allegations the show faced this summer, you probably envision Ellen rocking her famous short blonde pixie cut that she's had for years.

Paired with a snazzy pair of sneakers, of course. It's her classic, signature look!

But surprise! Ellen recently debuted a brand new style.

On Instagram and on her show, Ellen just debuted a new, slicked back pompadour style, and we think it really suits her!

Obviously, fans had to take to social media to share their thoughts on Ellen's new look.

Some fans don't love change and were not so crazy about it.

"Ellen's hair looking like it's about to get into a fist fight at a little league game," tweeted one person.

Some people were kind of clever with their opinions on the new style.

"She looks like Dash from The Incredibles," another person tweeted.

But not everybody was against it. Some fans really loved it!

"I love your new haircut," one fan commented on Instagram, noting that "It matches [Ellen's wife] Portia's!"

"Loving the new look, Ellen!" one fan wrote. "It really suits you!"
