Kelly Ripa, host of Live! With Kelly and Michael, has done it again – and by it, we mean her hair.

The 44-year-old star showed off her brand new hairstyle on Thursday on her show. After spending 5 hours in her stylist’s chair a day before the broadcast, Ripa finally ditched her pastel pink hair to a bright blue hue.

Thanks to hair colorist and style genius Ryan Trygstad, Ripa now sports a mermaid-esque hair color. “I wanted to try blue because I tried pink and I really liked it. We dyed it blue and it turned lime green. Mark [Consuelos] came downstairs and he said ‘Oh my gosh, you look like the lucky charms guy.’”

"[The kids] think I look like a superhero!"

The Live! host uploaded a photo of her freshly dyed hair on Instagram with a caption, “Shady’s back, tell a friend….” Trygstad shared a shot of the mother of three on the app right after he finished the makeover.

The shady lady’s brand new hue perfectly complements her tanned skin. During the show, she wore a pale pink, long-sleeved top and a long, grey skirt to further accentuate her bright blue locks.

The host looks pretty pleased with the results of the coloring although she says to Michael Strahan, her co-host, “What’s sad is that I get two shampoos and then it’s back to normal.”

Ripa says she loves trying out new looks and hairstyles, saying, “Every time I get ready to go on vacation I dye my hair a different color. It'll wash out. This will wash out, I just haven't washed my hair yet.”

“I get bored. I think I might go red next.”

Clearly Trygstad’s stylist chair is so super comfortable that Ripa just can’t seem to get off of it.
