New Year, new do? (Sorry, we couldn’t resist.) Jenny McCarthy is the latest star to ditch her extensions and go for a fresh chop, which she teased on Twitter and debuted on The View Monday. Before showing off her flirty, voluminous new bob on the show, McCarthy hinted at the new look with a photo (below) sharing a photo of her hairstylist about to make the cut. “Should I go short or short short or short short short?” she asked.

She didn’t go “short short short” (too bad; she’d look cute with a pixie!) but she did seem to be loving her “short short” hair on the show the next day. “I did this hairdo, by the way, because I was so tired of the extensions,” she told her co-hosts. “I just want to feel a little bit more authentic this year, more real.” She also noted that she’d lost her famously long nails — and joked that her breast implants may be next.

This morning, McCarthy showed her bob styled in a sleeker way as she posed with Bachelor host Chris Harrison, showing that her shorter hair is super-versatile. What do you think of her big new change? Should she go even shorter — or darker? Weigh in below!
