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!
