Sofia Vergara, who stars in the hit comedy Modern Family, has decided to change up her look with a new hairstyle.
According to Us Weekly, the star took to her Twitter and Instagram to show off her blonde new locks. “Blond ambitions!! Gracias to the amazing Kelly Klain Im ready for summer!” she posted, along with a photo of the new do.
While the new lighter color may seem like a complete turn around to some, Vergara has revealed in the past that she is actually a natural blonde. In an interview with Self magazine, the actress opened up about struggling in the showbiz world due to her looks.
“When I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent – but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: They thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek,” she shared. The star added, “The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, ‘Oh, she’s the hot Latin girl.’ I loved it. I’d always felt a little ‘too much’ as a blonde, like a big-mouth version of Pamela Anderson. Being brunette toned me down a bit.”
It looks like her brunette change did in fact help her find her place, as she has been nominated for both Emmy and Golden Globes awards since 2010.
Modern Family airs on Wednesdays, at 9 p.m. on ABC.
