On Tuesday, the Modern Family star shared a photo of her golden locks on Instagram under the caption, "Blond ambitions!! Gracias to the amazing Kelly Klain. Im ready for summer!"
As it turns out, the Colombian bombshell is actually a natural blonde and decided to go brunette when she began her career as an actress.
"I'm a natural blonde, but 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," she told Self magazine in 2010. "The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, 'Oh, she's the hot Latin girl.'"
In the end, it all worked out. Vergara's character on ABC's acclaimed show is famous for her exotic accent, her curves and her long brown locks. In real life, the actress feels the color simply soothes her.
"I loved it. I'd always felt a little 'too much' as a blonde, like a big-mouth version of Pamela Anderson," she told Self. "Being brunette toned me down a bit."
