Allison underwent a dramatic hair makeover following the COVID-19 lockdown. “I was in Ohio for most of 2020,” Allison revealed during a February 17, 2021, appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where the Mom star showed off her new short, silver hair. “I started … a big, healthy few inches of gray roots came in and I just decided I wanted to be free from hair color and hair extensions. So, this is the most authentic …” she added. Allison later told another news outlet that she’d always admired actress Helen Mirren’s short, silver fox look, and wanted to give it a try.
