As Modern Family comes to an end, it seems Ariel Winter wants to mark the moment by doing something drastic. And how better to do that, than by dying her hair?

Once recognisable as Alex Dunphy, Ariel’s latest hairdo has taken her from comedy star to teenage Secret Agent. That’s right, her new hue is reminiscent of a very specific character – IRL Kim Possible.

Turns out, the once dark-haired beauty has been teasing her new look for weeks. For starters, Ariel posted a pre-red-carpet throwback on February 7th. The headshot, which features her rocking a bouncing blowdry in fresh orange hues, was captioned: "🙃 Can’t wait to get back to this hair colour 🙃 #fbf".

Then, on Wednesday, Ariel posted another allusive headshot. This time she was holding her hair up and captioned the au-naturel snap: “bye bye dark hair :) I don’t think I’ll miss you :)))”.

Finally, on Thursday, Ariel took the plunge and debuted her fresh locks on Instagram in – you guessed it – another headshot. In the post, she’s sporting her tangerine waves tousled from root to tip. She even joked that she thinks her new nickname should be ‘Strawberry Shortcake’.

Adorable.

Maybe it's the effortless waves, or maybe it's Kim Possible vibes, but I am living for this transformation. It’s shorter, more vibrant look than Ariel’s rocked before, and personally I think she's never looked better.

Let’s just hope the Kim Possible theme stops there – nobody wants to see Ariel’s tangerine-hued waves traded in for a Rufus The Mole-Rat hairdo.

But then again, I'm sure she’d pull that off...
