Ariel Winter has marked the end of Modern Family by ditching her signature dark hair and going strawberry blonde.

The 22-year-old has had to keep her hair dyed black since 2009 after landing the role of studious teen Alex Dunphy on the hit U.S. show.

But now that the award-winning comedy series has come to an end after 11 seasons, Ariel has opted to return to one of her favourite hair colours to celebrate being free to experiment with her locks once again.

“I’m a strawberry and a shortcake sooooo new nickname,” she cheekily captioned a photo on Instagram of her new strawberry blonde ‘do on Wednesday.

In a post earlier that same day, Ariel uploaded snaps of her posing in the hair salon and wrote: “Bye bye dark hair 🙂 I don’t think I’ll miss you :))).”

Ariel headed to Nine Zero One salon in Los Angeles for her makeover, which took a whopping seven hours to complete.

And speaking to People.com, hairstylist Tabitha Duenas shared that her celebrity client had told her she “never wants to go back to black again”.

“With Modern Family’s long run ending, Ariel is finally free to have the hair colour she wants. She wanted to strip out the black and go back to her strawberry golden blonde look we had done previously when she was on break from filming,” Tabitha explained, noting that it took several rounds of lightening cream to strip out the black dye from her hair.

Previously, Ariel told the publication that she always gets a self-confidence boost when she gets her hair done.

“Every time I come out of getting my hair done, I feel like a new woman,” the star smiled. “I’m pretty adventurous with my hair, I’ll try a lot of things.”

Sarah Hyland ‘will not tolerate’ critics of Ariel Winter’s sheer dress

Sarah Hyland has defended Ariel Winter after her sheer dress was harshly criticised by online trolls.

The duo, who play on-screen siblings Haley and Alex Dunphy on Modern Family, posed for pictures at a bash celebrating the end of filming the U.S. sitcom, and Hyland later shared them on Instagram.

In the pictures, Winter can be seen wearing an off-the-shoulder see-through sheer black dress, with her black bandeau bra and high-waisted pants on show, while Hyland rocked a black bodycon dress with spaghetti straps.

Followers of the actress were quick to criticise the 22-year-old’s revealing outfit, forcing Hyland to defend her on-screen sister.

“Come on, girl. Why would you want to dress like that in front of a bunch of people who literally watched you grow into a young woman?” one commenter wrote. “It’s weird.”

“That she’s a sexy and confident woman,” Hyland fired back in the comments. “Everyone that is making a negative comment about my sister can back the f**k up because I will not tolerate it.”

And the actress came to Ariel’s defence once again when another critic commented: “What’s up with Ariel Winters outfit tho (sic)?”

“You (mean) that she’s (fire emoji)?? I KNOW,” Hyland retorted.

Hyland, 29, shared several snaps of her castmates, including Sofia Vergara, Nolan Gould and Ty Burrell, at the party, and joked in the caption of the slideshow that she and Winter had spent so much time together that they were now wearing practically the same clothes.

“I love these people with all my heart. 11 years together is proof (that) you and your TV sister will start wearing the same outfit, siblings for life will be made, and you’ll forever fight over the same professor. We’ll always be Dunphys and we’ll always have each other,” she wrote.

Sarah Hyland has clapped back at a social media troll who claimed she had a spray tan for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The Modern Family actress looked stunning in a floral Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini gown, which featured a high-low skirt, at the celebrity-studded ceremony on Sunday night.

Sarah paired the outfit with silver heels and had her brunette hair slicked back into a chic low ponytail, and while posing for photographers on the red carpet, showed off the deep tan that she had topped up during a holiday to Mexico earlier this month.

The 29-year-old shared a series of snaps of her at the event on Instagram and joked that she had a blanket on hand if she got cold.

“If my legs got cold, I had an extra built-in blanket. Thanks to the village that put all of this together I felt like a goddess last night,” she wrote.

However, one irate follower threw shade at the star, and blasted her for allegedly faking her tan.

“The spray tan is way too much,” they posted.

The comment promoted Sarah to quickly reply: “I’ll tell the actual sun to go easy on me next time I see it…”

However, her fiance, former The Bachelorette alum Wells Adams, had no complaints about her show-stopping look, and simply commented, “Dear lord”, alongside a drooling emoji.

“Just. Every. Thing,” Sarah’s longtime friend and fellow actress Vanessa Hudgens wrote, while Brandi Cyrus added: “Soooo gorgeous!!!!!!!”

Sarah Hyland has been tapped to front a new campaign for No B.S. Skin Care.

The Modern Family actress takes serious measures when it comes to her health, having been diagnosed with kidney dysplasia as a child and undergone two kidney transplants.

Now, Sarah has teamed with bosses at skincare brand No B.S. Skin Care to educate people about the importance of using clean, non-toxic formulas.

“Staying healthy is important to me, and that means taking control of what I put in and on my body. My lifestyle detox started with clean eating, but when I realised how many toxins were hidden in the products I used every day, I knew I had to make a big switch,” she said. “No B.S. resonated with me because their products are made with good-for-you ingredients that actually improve skin health. My No B.S. regimen has four powerful basics you can use every day to clean up your skincare game. My hope is that everyone who tries it will feel so good in their skin that they don’t mind going make-up-free.”

As part of her daily regimen, Sarah uses No B.S. Skin Care’s Gentle Foaming Cleanser, Purifying Facial Toner, Vitamin C + E Serum, and the Day + Night Hyaluronic Cream.

All of the formulas are made without harmful ingredients like parabens, phthalates, sulphates, synthetics, and toxic petrochemicals.

Accordingly, Diana Briceno, chief executive officer of No B.S. Skin Care, is thrilled to have the 29-year-old promoting the brand.

“Sarah’s story really resonated with our team and our brand because like so many of our customers, she realized that what she ate, drank, and used on her skin could contribute to toxins building up her body,” commented Diana. “At No B.S., we love sharing stories like Sarah’s to bring awareness to the importance of clean beauty ingredients and products.”

Ariel Winter has weekly therapy sessions to keep her “mentally and physically healthy”.

The Modern Family star opened up about her wellness routine and highlighted the importance of self-care at the Spotlight charity event, benefiting foster care youth, at Paramount Studios in Hollywood over the weekend.

“I think it’s really important for kids to take care of themselves and make that a priority,” the actress told Entertainment Tonight.

The star then opened up about how she’s improving her own life through exercise and mental wellness, noting: “You can take care of yourself and not be selfish. You can make sure to prioritise how you feel.

“I think that that’s something that I didn’t do for a very long time and I’m doing that now and that feels great.”

Highlighting the benefit of exercise and weekly therapy, the 21-year-old, who began appearing on the hit ABC show at the age of 11, added: “We only get one life and you’ve gotta live your own, you’ve gotta do as much as you can to make sure you’re feeling healthy mentally and physically and that’s something that I’m doing a lot more of now and it’s nice.”

The final season of Modern Family airs Wednesdays on ABC.

Ariel Winter no longer reads social media comments because she is tired of online trolls criticising her body shape.

The Modern Family actress has previously been open about her fluctuating figure, explaining that factors such as medication and exercise can have a dramatic effect on her size, and noted that she is often unfairly targeted by critics.

However, in a new interview for Shape.com, Ariel shared that she now avoids looking at the comments on her Instagram posts because it affects her mental health.

“I’ve faced body shaming and cyberbullies for about seven or eight years now that I’ve been in the spotlight,” she told the publication. “At 11 years old, I started working on the show and I was super flat and had no curves and was getting hate for that. Then overnight, my body changed, and I was this curvy woman. I didn’t know how to navigate that and got so much hate for it. It was really hurtful, and I struggled a lot.

“But now I’m at the point where I’ve stopped reading Instagram comments. I do what I want, I post what I want, and I say what I want. I don’t focus on pleasing anyone else but myself.”

Ariel went on to explain that at times in her career she has attempted to “crash diet” in order to lose weight. Yet, restricting meals has never worked for her and only led to “a lot of depression and anxiety”.

And the star can’t understand why some people struggle to accept that she’s body positive even though she’s had cosmetic surgery.

“I think it’s ridiculous that (because I had breast reduction surgery in 2015) or because someone is losing weight that they don’t love their body. People should be able to love their bodies at all stages, whatever their body looks like,” the 21-year-old mused.

Ariel Winter felt like a new person after she dyed her hair red.

The Modern Family actress often likes to experiment with her hair colour, and debuted her new copper locks on social media in May, with her caption referring to Ariel, the lead character in 1989 Disney animation The Little Mermaid.

In a new interview with People, the 21-year-old gushed that her experiment with red hair had been a complete success.

“It makes me feel like a new me,” she shared. “After I got it done, I was looking in the mirror and I felt like a completely different person. I was pretty shocked that my hair colour could make me look so different and a lot of people will not recognise me. They don’t piece it together because the hair looks so different for them, but I like it a lot.”

Ariel is best known for having the jet-black hair she sports as her character Alex Dunphy in the long-running sitcom, but she is actually a natural blonde.

“People never guess, but my natural hair colour is dirty blonde,” the star revealed. “I’ve always had dark eyebrows, so I was that person. I have dirty blonde hair and really dark eyebrows and dark eyes. I’ve dyed it so many times in the past so really the most important thing for me with my hair now is trying to keep my hair healthy.”

The actress has to keep her hair the same when she’s shooting the show, so she waits until filming is completed for each season to experiment with her tresses.

“I’m pretty adventurous with my hair, I’ll try a lot of things,” she added. “Alex doesn’t change up her look that much. I don’t experiment with it (on the show) so it’s fun for me to do it outside of work.”

Ariel has partnered with Ulta Beauty to promote the company’s new signature in-store blow-out services.

Sarah Hyland has responded to fans comparing photos of her and Emily Ratajkowski in similar dresses.

The Modern Family actress took to Instagram on Monday to post a side-by-side snap of herself in a black dress with cutout detailing which was taken over a decade ago, and a picture of the actress/model sporting a near identical version made by Michael Kors to the 2019 Tony Awards.

“The sisterhood of the travelling Tony dress. Spotted on Sarah Hyland in 2007. @emrata Spotted in 2019 wearing it 100000 per cent BETTER,” she captioned the snap.

While Sarah meant for the post to be playful, a number of Instagram users began making comparisons between the two women, and she was later forced to add to her caption.

“I can’t believe I’m editing this. I’m NOT comparing. This is supposed to be a funny post. PLEASE do NOT say anything rude about ‘who looks better’ It’s not even the same dress,” the 28-year-old wrote.

Accordingly, a number of the star’s followers showed support for her statement, with one user writing, “Welcome to 2019 where we have to explain our jokes. Ohhh what a time to be alive,” and another commenting, “You just both look amazing #womensupportingwomen.”

A third added: “You both look gorgeous!”

In addition, Emily also caught wind of the post and noted in the comments section: “You look amazing,” along with a string of red heart emojis.

This is not the first time Sarah has had to defend an Instagram post. Last year, she was accused of appearing too thin in a bikini selfie by several trolls, and later took to her Instagram Stories to highlight how she abides by a healthy diet and actually eats a lot of carbs.

“I’ve been reading some of your DMs (direct messages) and so many of you are like, ‘Girl, you fine but like, eat some bread!’ So I would like to put in a request for anyone who is concerned about my bread consumption to send to (boyfriend) Wells Adams, because he is the sole person who knows about how much bread I consume on a daily basis. Thanks!” she insisted.

Sofia Vergara is adamant two readily available products are the secret to clear skin.

The Modern Family actress and fashion entrepreneur always pulls out all the stops whenever she steps out onto the red carpet, with people around the world constantly curious about her skincare regime.

But now, Sofia has divulged that she is a big fan of using drug store favourite Cetaphil’s cleanser and eye make-up remover to keep her complexion flawless.

“I try different ones all the time, because people recommend me stuff, especially in this business. But the basic stuff works best for me,” she told Who What Wear, before adding that she likes Supergoop!’s sunscreen products. “For sunscreen, I’m using Supergoop! and it’s been really good. I also use a calming serum – that’s my go-to.”

Sofia went on to explain that she now abides by a very simple routine, as her skin has suffered from years of wearing heavy make-up for TV appearances. She also has rosacea, a long-term skin condition that typically affects the face and can result in redness, pimples, swelling, and small and superficial dilated blood vessels.

“I’m going to be 47 this July, and, unfortunately, because of the high-heat lamps on sets (and I live on a set), I’ve developed rosacea. I’ve been struggling with that for six or seven years. It’s hard because I get really red, so I’ve realised that I’ve had to treat my skin like sensitive skin, where I didn’t before. I used to love products and would try anything. You name it-you tell me to put cement under my eyes, and I’d try it. But unfortunately, now all the fun is gone for me. I can’t really wear rich moisturisers or rich oils,” the star commented.

When it comes to cosmetics, Sofia uses Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara.

Sofia Vergara is launching a line of “revolutionary” shapewear for women.

The Modern Family actress joined forces with entrepreneur Renata Black in late 2017 to unveil subscription underwear service EBY, with 10 per cent of the proceeds from sales going to the Seven Bar Foundation, which provides small loans to women around the world to help them start their own business.

Now, Sofia is expanding the brand’s offerings to include Comfort Shape shapewear garments, with the range currently featuring a brief and thong silhouette.

“Excited to officially announce my launch of Comfort Shape with @joineby,” she captioned a snap of the designs on her Instagram page. “We’ve heard from so many women that they want to be shaped and supported, but also feel comfortable. So we listened and I’m so excited to finally share with you the launch of Comfort Shape – revolutionising shapewear.”

Aligning with EBY’s size-inclusive strategy, the undergarments are available in a wide range of sizes. Pieces are currently only available in a nude colour, though black versions will be introduced soon.

Regarding the concept, Sofia also shared in an interview with People.com that she and Renata worked on the product for nine months and did over 30 fit tests until they settled on the perfect cut and fabric.

“It’s super comfortable. You don’t feel like you’re in a girdle or anything like that… It holds everything in without making you feel like you want to throw up!” the 46-year-old insisted. “Underwear is something that really makes you or not in an outfit. If you have the wrong underwear, it can really damage the look. So, I will always really appreciate a good underwear.”

A monthly subscription box with one pair of underwear costs $16 (£13), while the three-pair box is $45 (£36) every three months.
