Sharon Osbourne has got everyone talking—and in a good way. The author, business woman, and television personality has switched things up in the beauty department, and her new look is stunning. But what did Osbourne change? Well, The Talk co-host got rid of her trademark red hair.

Osbourne's latest look was revealed on Sunday after renowned hair stylist Jack Martin posted a photo on Instagram. According to Martin, the 67-year-old enlisted his help because, after 18 years, she was ready for a "complete transformation."

"Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. She explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation [a] long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster,” Martin wrote on Instagram along a side-by-side photo of Osbourne’s old and new look.

"Sharon was very tired of coloring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs."

That said, the change wasn't easy. In fact, Martin wasn't sure if he would be able to lift her color entirely.

"I didn’t promise Sharen anything," Martin said. "But I told her I will try my best," and try he did. "It took me a total of 8 hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to coloring her hair once a week anymore."

Martin also listed the products he used, including items from Olaplex, Pravana, and Wella Professionals.

Osbourne isn't the first celebrity to embrace a white or gray look. Jamie Lee Curtis and Diane Keaton have been rocking silvery strands for several years, and a few weeks ago, Jane Fonda debuted her own gray hair at the Oscars. (And yes, Martin was behind that transformation, too.)

As for Osbourne, we have no doubt her hair will be "the talk" of Tuesday's episode of The Talk.
