It takes a brave woman to try a new ‘do hours before hitting the red carpet at the Academy Awards, but Giuliana Rancic did just that.

The E! host got rid of her long, Kardashian-esque extensions and instead wore a more natural look, donning an above-the-shoulder bob.

“This morning I don’t know what came over me, but I thought, ‘I wanna chop my hair off,'” Rancic said on E!‘s Oscars pre-show. “What better day than Oscar day to chop your hair off?”

We’re not the only ones who approve of Rancic’s simpler style; her co-host does, too. “This is the extensionless Guiliana,” Ryan Seacrest (who, in his voluminous pompadour, looked like he might be rocking some of Rancic’s old extensions himself). “I like the new you.” But do you? Tell us what you think of Rancic’s new hair below!

She used to be so pretty … Stop with the plastic surgery already … You were perfect the way you were, hair or no hair!

love the new guiliana. (it’s about time.) the too long extensions and ombre color were old. and made her look old and trying too hard. now she looks fresh, natural and lovely. she’s a new person. hope she keeps it up.

Can’t say I favor the look but i still love G-rizzle… she needs to fire her stylist though!!!!

I like her a lot but I think the color of her hair made her look OLD – and I thought she looked like she was sick at theOscars.

I am so over her. I used to feel bad for her but since she took 3 months maternity leave for a kid she did not even give birth to, not her fault but she is annoying now.

LOVE the new look!! Giuliana looks AMAZING!!!

Much more age appropriate. Always thought she was trying to look like a 22 year old with her too long hair and mini skirts. She must be in her 40’s by now. More flattering I think.
