Kelly Ripa is the latest celebrity to sport bright pink locks. The Live! With Kelly and Michael star had her tresses dyed recently--just before heading out on vacation.

Ripa joins the ranks of stars including Kaley Cuoco, Nicole Richie, Julianne Hough, and Hilary Duff who are either wearing or recently wore pink hair.

Kelly Ripa shared word of her new 'do with her followers via Twitter on Tuesday night.

She also shared a photo of her pink locks on Instagram.

Kelly Ripa's hair stylist shared a couple of shots, too.

Kelly Ripa debuted her new 'do on Wednesday on Live! With Kelly and Michael--leaving herself wide open for ribbing from co-host Michael Strahan.

“Every time I go on vacation I dye my hair a different color,” she explained to the audience. “It usually washes out and this will wash out. It’s part of my tradition--I like to have fun for a few weeks. I literally sat there with pink hair dye, multiple shades of pink on my hair for hours. I get very bored. I’ve had the same color for six months at least, and that’s a long time for me.”

Ripa also says she’s not done dyeing yet.

“I think I might go red next. When we first put it on it looked really red and I was like, ‘I like it!’ I tried a red wig once and I was drunk with power," she said.

Kelly Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, hasn't yet seen the new pink 'do in person, but Kelly sent him a picture.

“He said, ‘Babe, keep going. I love it.'”
