Ariel Winter may have just forecasted the biggest Spring hair colour trend for 2020: burnt orange. The Modern Family star debuted the orange-red colour in LA, shortly after wrapping 11 seasons of the show. "With Modern Family's long run ending, Ariel is finally free to have the hair colour she wants," said Tabitha Dueñas, the Nine Zero One master stylist responsible for Winter's dramatic change. "She wanted to strip out the black and go back to her strawberry golden blonde look we had done previously when she was on break from filming. She said she never wants to go back to black again."
To reach the vibrant hue, Dueñas said the colour process lasted seven hours and was done by stripping the black with colour remover and then using a lightening cream in multiple rounds. "Her hair feels as good as it does it did before we coloured it!" she continued.
This isn't the first time Winter's traded in her signature black hair for burnt orange. Last Spring, she gave us major Little Mermaid vibes when she experimented with the same bold red hue. While the contrast is certainly striking, we can't say it's unexpected. On Feb. 7, Winter posted a throwback photo of her glam, burnt-orange hair from the year prior and captioned it, "Can't wait to get back to this colour." Maybe it's because she's a natural redhead, but the lighter hue just seems to fit. As we book our new-season hair colour appointments, we can't help but save her look for major style inspiration. Something about the bright shade just feels refreshing and right for Spring.
