Ricki Lake is wigging out!

The talk show host, 44, experimented with a new, temporary hairstyle while taping an episode of The Ricki Lake Show October 3. The TV personality wore a jet black, blunt bob cut with bangs for an episode titled "It's All About the Hair."

Lake interviewed hair pros Chaz Dean, Roy Teeluck, Kim Kimble and Oscar Blandi for the show, who gave audience members tips for how to clean, cut, style and accessorize their hair. They also cut hair to benefit the charities Locks of Love and Dress for Success.

The episode is a nod to one of Lake's most famous TV moments in the early '90s. "Any of you who grew up watching the old Ricki Lake, we're gonna throw something back to you circa 1994," she said. (In the original episode, a woman snatched the wig off the head of her man's mistress. "You can keep the man, but not the wig!" the woman shouted.)
