Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter 'Think Alike' When It Comes To Hair Changes


Still obsessing over Sarah Hyland’s latest switch to black? So are we — and being that it’s the darkest the Modern Family actress has gone, we had to ask her how she’s feeling about the new shade at this weekend’s Kid’s Choice Awards.

“I’ve done the whole going blonder for summer and spring,” Hyland told PEOPLE of the change when she rocked it at the Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend. “I wanted to do the opposite; change the ballgame up a bit.”

Which is exactly what she did, this time, going from her light brown ombré hue to a shade that she had never tried before.

“It’s been fun,” she shares. “I haven’t been this dark. I’m kind of more like a dark brunette, dirty brunette instead of dark, dark black. So I’m really enjoying it. I think it’s fun — we’ll see.”

But she’s not the only Modern Family star altering their look lately. Just last week, her television sister, Ariel Winter, also went for a new hue, dying her hair bright red. So is it a coincidence? Hyland credits their simultaneous switches to their close relationship: “We think alike. We’re like sisters. We always do that.”

What do you think of Hyland’s new look? Tell us below.
