Ariel Winter Talks Breast Reduction Scars, Explains Why She's 'Not Ashamed'

It was time for a change this week for Modern Family stars Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland, who both debuted dramatic new 'dos.

On Thursday, Winter showed a glimpse of her new bright-red locks in a close-up pic on Instagram, which she captioned, "I'm now a [strawberry emoji]."

The fiery color choice is certainly a far cry from the 18-year-old actress' recent jet-black look, which she recently rocked on the red carpet at The Dream Builders Project's charity gala in New York City last week.

Meanwhile, Winter's on-screen sister decided to darken things up. A day before Winter went red, Hyland debuted her new, blue-black color.

"Hello from the darker side," the 25-year-old actress captioned a pic of her striking new 'do which she shared to Instagram on Wednesday.

Hyland, who next stars in ABC's Dirty Dancing remake, recently showed off her long, brunette locks at the 24th Annual Elton John AIDs Foundation's Oscar Viewing Party on Feb. 28, where her light hair looked radiant, along with Hyland's striking, silver gown.
