Sofia Vergara is getting back to her roots–literally: The Modern Family actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to debut fresh light blonde highlights. The shade is quite the change from those chocolate-brown locks we were so accustomed to, but it’s actually closer to Vergara’s natural color.

“Blond ambitions!! Gracias to the amazing Kelly Klain I’m ready for summer!” Vergara shared along with a sultry shot of her lightened hair, in which she appears with little makeup and in a casual off-the-shoulder top.

Perhaps the Colombian-born actress is trying to break down stereotypes? She’d previously said that she dyed her naturally blonde hair because “It didn’t match the Hollywood stereotype for a Latina woman.”

Vergara also added, “I think I should have always had dark hair.” But we have to respectfully disagree with the actress since she looks so pretty with these summer-ready strands.

The actress’s Instagram and Twitter followers had lots of love for the her new look, but we want to know what you think. Does Vergara look better with dark hair or highlights?
