Carrie Bickmore has had blonde hair for what feels like forever, so it was a shock to viewers when she revealed a bold new look.

The former blonde bombshell debuted a dramatic new brunette look while hosting The Project on Monday evening.

When quizzed about her new dark locks by co-host Peter Helliar, she said: “I’ve had the same colour for 35 years, and I was bored and I thought, ‘Why not give it a whirl?’”

And while we LOVE Carrie’s new tresses, it seems not everyone is a fan of the major makeover.

“If my face was an emoji, it would be this one,” Carrie captioned her hair reveal photo.

“My son’s not dealing with it well,” the host confessed. “He keeps looking at me and asking ‘When’s old Mummy coming back?’”

Her cheeky co-host Waleed Aly was quick with a quip, adding, “It’s a bit of a coincidence, because I was actually going to go blonde tonight!”

She looks so different!

Carrie confessed she loves the new look to the Herald Sun.

“As soon as I did it, I knew immediately I liked it,” she revealed.

Her transformation was in association with her brand ambassadorship of Garnier Nutrisse.

She continued: “I feel like a different person, I’m quite excited.

“I think for women it’s a big thing to change your hair colour, and for a drastic change it takes a bit of guts,” she said.

“Now that I’ve done it, I think everyone should give it a crack.”
