Ariel Winter blew Instagram away on Monday, taking to the platform for a reveal – and it wasn’t do to with “Modern Family” ending. The sitcom star had already teased that she was toying with the idea of returning to her formerly-trademark red hair – it looks like the 22-year-old is set to kiss goodbye to the raven-haired look.
Ariel made headlines just a few days ago for going daringly-sheer in a see-through and underwear-style dress as she and her co-stars wrapped up “Modern Family” – while Ariel was slammed for her look by some, today didn’t see the beauty face much (if any) backlash.
Ariel’s post included both video and photo content. The star opened her update with a stunning video of herself playing with her hair as she smiled in a tight and long-sleeved black top, with the look further revealed to be a full-on athleisurewear one as Ariel posed in a tight pair of cracked marble yoga pants with gold details breaking up the black.
Ariel delivered her beautiful smile and beauty via a discreetly made-up face, then taking to her caption to let fans know more.
“bye bye dark hair 🙂 I don’t think I’ll miss you :))),” she wrote.
Ariel’s update didn’t take long to bring in the likes – over 75,000 were clocked within just 30 minutes of her post going live.
Fan comments poured in.
“What color are you going this time?” one asked.
“Omg your leggings!!!?” another said.
“I swear you have the cutest smile I ever seen wow ?” was another comment.
Ariel had first suggested that she was done with the dark hair phase on February 7. A throwback of the actress wearing a bathrobe and showcasing her strawberry-blonde locks had come captioned: “Can’t wait to get back to this hair color #fbf.”
Ariel was profiled by Allure back in July 2019. The feature saw the ABC star talk about her hair, admitting that she herself hadn’t recognized herself after going red.
“I’ve never dyed my hair platinum-white yet. Dyeing it this color was something I was really excited to do. At first, I was nervous,” Ariel said, adding:
“But the day after I dyed it, I felt like a different person. I walked past my bathroom mirror and was like, ‘Oh my god! Who’s in my bathroom?’ And it was literally me. But I love it. It’s my favorite style I’ve done so far.”
“Modern Family” stars have been taking to social media to mark the series ending. Sofia Vergara did so tearfully, Sarah Hyland brought in Ariel and Nolan Gould in her snaps, and Ariel herself marked the end via a photo of herself outside her trailer – her Alex Dunphy name was visible in the background.
“In just a few hours we will series wrap on @abcmodernfam, and along with everything else, I will be saying goodbye to the trailer I have had for almost a decade. Goodbye trailer! Goodbye Alex plaque! ? #modernfamily #memories #family #farewell,” the star captioned her shot.
