When it comes to Ariel Winter‘s hair, we’re positive about one thing: it’s dark, dark brown — and it always has been. But the star seems to be interested in experimenting with a brand new hue: the brightest shade of red.
Winter posted a photo on Instagram Friday showing off her new shade, which is teetering on the verge of orange. And while we were very convinced that it was a wig-enabled fake out, we’re pretty sure this is the real deal. Which now gives her something else in common with the other famous (red-haired mermaid) Ariel.

So what’s she up to? Whether it’s for a role or she’s just playing around, she’s owning it. Which isn’t surprising, considering how open the 18-year-old Modern Family actress has been regarding her confidence lately. After her recent breast-reduction surgery, Winter opened up to PEOPLE about the issues she faced at a young age, being a small girl with large breasts.
“It was an instant weight lifted off my chest – both literally and figuratively,” she told PEOPLE of the surgery, adding, “There’s a confidence you find when you finally feel right in your body.”
