Ellen gets slick new hairstyle after toxic workplace allegations, Internet says 'hardly softens the image'
Ellen DeGeneres has ditched her signature hairstyle and opted for a slick one during recent episodes of her show this past week. The 62-year-old was spotted rocking the new look that showed her in a short swept back hairstyle in place of her usual pixie cut. But when she posted a clip of her on her Instagram page wearing the new hair, her fans could not stop themselves from commenting.
‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ host shared a video on the social media platform on October 20 while talking about Cardi B’s accidental nude leak. In the post, she was seen donning a white blazer over a buttoned-up patterned top and jeans. She paired them with a pair of white sneakers. In the clip, Ellen said, “I want to talk about Cardi B. Um, last week some nude pictures of her, I guess they were on the internet. And then someone said that she leaked out her own nudes. I had a nude picture that leaked as well. And since it’s out already, I thought I would show you...here’s my nude pic.” As she stopped speaking, the screen showed the poster of ellentube.com where only her eyes were visible while audience laughter was heard in the background.
But instead of her light talk, Ellen’s hairstyle attracted more attention as one user wrote: “What happened to her hair?!” while another said, “nice hair!!” The third user added: “Ur hair style looks like Porsha.” Some people on Twitter also commented on her new look as one person said, “Ellen DeGeneres tries to revamp her image...with new hairstyle?” The second user tweeted: “Hardly softens the image.”

Earlier, Ellen showed off her new look in another Instagram post a few days ago, where she copied a sultry selfie from Kylie Jenner. In the photo, she was seen sipping water from a glass while wearing a denim shirt over a black top and tan pants. The caption of the image read: “Inspired by my friend @kyliejenner, here is my thirsty photo. Don’t forget to vote!” On that picture also a lot of people commented with one saying, “I literally thought it was Justin Bieber!!” The second person added, “I love your new haircut.” “Ellen you are looking soo hot cute adorable love you soo much,” said the third user.
Ellen’s hair makeover has come during a time when she is trying to revamp her image and that of her show - battered by a number of toxic workplace allegations in the past months. After introducing her 18th season of the show that has been running since 2003, the comedian immediately addressed all the accusations against her famous show on its first episode and said, “As you may have heard this summer, there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show. And then there was an investigation. 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 know that I'm in a position of privilege and power. I realized that with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”
“So my hope is that we can still be a place of happiness and joy. I still want to be the one hour a day that people can go to escape and laugh. I want to continue to help all the people that we help every day. And I'm committed to making this the best season that we have ever had,” she added.
