Ariel Winter is no longer a redhead. The Modern Family actress returned to her signature dark hair hue Thursday and unveiled her dye job on Instagram with an obligatory sexy selfie.

“Back to black,” she captioned the above photo on her feed. Her followers were quick to praise the star’s return to the dark side in the comments, expressing their feelings with tons of of heart, crown and 100 emojis. And many drew comparisons between Winter and fellow teen queen Kylie Jenner. (The resemblance is definitely there.)

The star’s switch from red to black could be for Modern Family filming — or maybe she wanted to return to her more natural shade before starting classes at UCLA this fall. Winter graduated from high school in June and revealed she was joining the UCLA class of 2020.

Soon after graduation, the vocal actress took down body shamers who criticized the form-fitting dress she wore to her party.

“Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress,” the 18-year-old tweeted. “And if you hate it, don’t buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody.”

She also shared a similar message with fans on Instagram, captioning a recent mirror selfie with a powerful message: “Embrace all that you are. Don’t let those outside voices become your inner voice #mychoice #loveyourcurves.”
