The TV star's hair looked like a grown-out pixie cut, with plenty of volume at the top and sides. It was also much darker than the highlighted locks she favours today.

Captioning the photo, Carrie wrote: "Umm… maybe we'll talk about this one day. 1985. Yep, I cut my own hair. Lol."

Carrie's trip down memory lane comes after she shared the sad news that she has split from her boyfriend, Fabian Viteri.

Carrie looks so different with short hair

Posting several pictures of the former couple alongside a poem about heartbreak, the 53-year-old wrote: "I am single. Again... I am also… grateful for what it was. Confused. Uncertain of the future. Sad. Hopeful. Trying to allow the emotions.

"Trying to be strong, allowing myself the space to cry and I will grow. And I will evolve. And I will survive this too. And I will honor that gift that it was."

Carrie continued: "Sometimes the things you thought were forever end up only being temporary. Finding the strength to accept that it's over is enormously painful.

"Losing your friend… losing the hopes and dreams… your partner… the person you shared everything with… your person… your love… it's hard.

"I'm not going to fake that I am OK. I celebrate my emotions because it tells me that I'm alive and that my heart loves deeply. It was real. True love. And I'm so sad it's over. But I'm grateful it happened. So very grateful," she concluded.

Carrie and Fabian began dating last September and the former couple recently went on a road trip away together.

The TV host documented their travels on social media and revealed that it had been great to get away amid her health battle – which has resulted in her having to take time off from The Talk to focus on her recovery.
