At 49, Kelly Ripa is living her best, bare-faced life — and she’s not afraid to show it. The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host recently paid a visit to her longtime hairstylist, Ryan Trygstad, to freshen up her signature blonde strands for fall. During the session, she shared a makeup-free selfie with fans, who are subsequently in awe of how fabulous she looks. To this, we say: How is anyone surprised?
The Instagram selfie shows the fresh-faced mom of four mid-hair treatment, along with Trygstad, who’s making a funny kissy face in the background. As for the caption, it reads: “Blondish. A new series maybe? Coming this fall to #abc,” clearly referring to the hit series, Blackish, which stars Yara Shahidi and Tracee Ellis Ross.
As expected, fans are obsessed with Ripa’s no-makeup moment, leaving messages in the comments like, “Slayyyyyyyyyy👏🏻👏🏻,” “you’re so naturally pretty💕,” and “You’re adorable 👏.” Folks are also commenting on her hair and how much they love the color, while others are begging for her to cut it back into a bob. (Right now, it falls just beneath her shoulders into a chic, medium-length style that she generally wears in waves.)
This hasn’t been the first time Ripa’s shared a makeup-free photo on social media (in fact, she did just a few weeks ago for National Daughter Day), and it certainly won’t be the last. Cheers to that.
