Other fans compared Kelly's pink hairstyle to Madonna, who recently dyed hers during lockdown. "Madonna copied you. I'm loving all this coloured hair!" one wrote, while another remarked: "Madonna vibes!"
During the pandemic, Kelly has been keeping fans updated with her hair maintenance, and just like everyone else, she's had a go at cutting and dyeing her locks.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan star has experimented with different colours over the years
In April, the Hope and Faith star told viewers on Live with Kelly and Ryan: "I'm not going to lie, I cut my own hair.
"I used kitchen scissors. We obviously don't have haircutting scissors."
The star was joined during the segment by husband Mark Consuelos, who admitted he was "ready to jump in" to save the situation if he needed to as he watched his wife at work.
Kelly has also used spray to cover grey roots while she was unable to visit a salon. She explained on the ABC daytime show: "Anyone that follows me on Instagram knows that this is sprayed, and you kind of see it forcing – it wants to show you, it wants you to see the reality," she said, spreading the hair on her scalp.
