Ariel Winter, 21, is ready to give it her all in the final season of Modern Family, which begins filming soon, and since she’s made a drastic change in her hair color during the break in between seasons, she’s hoping she won’t have to reverse it! The actress opted to color her hair a bright red in May, and now that season 11 is set to go, she’s hoping producers will let her character Alex, who normally has Ariel’s previous black hair, switch to the flattering red too.

“Ariel loves her hair color so much right now. She wasn’t sure how she’d feel, if she’d want to keep it or if it would be a quick phase, but she really loves it, she wants to keep it,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “The only thing is she starts shooting Modern Family again soon so the assumption is that she’ll dye her hair back to Alex’s color then but she really doesn’t want to. It took a whole day in the salon to get her hair the perfect red, she really doesn’t want to put her hair through that again so she might wear a really good wig. Or the best would be if producers would agree to let (her character) Alex have a hair makeover but Ariel isn’t counting on that.”

Since many wigs are made from actual human hair these days, it would make sense to have Ariel wear one for her character if producers opt to stick with the black, but there’s still hope that the red could appear by season’s end. We guess we’ll have to wait and see to find out!

Through thick and thin. Ariel Winter opened up in a recent interview with Us Weekly about how her boyfriend, Levi Meaden, has stood by her side throughout their relationship.

“He’s a wonderful person. He’s always there for me … all the time,” Winter, 21, told Us. “He’s always trying to make me feel good about myself, but also just to be there for me as a person, you know? Just as me, as Ariel — and that’s hard to find, is people who just take you for you. The good, the bad, the ugly — everything.”

The Modern Family actress went on to elaborate on how there is no limit to Meaden’s encouragement. “For me, that is great to have the support [from someone] on everything in life, not just specific things,” she added. “Just for someone to be there for you through all things, not just you know, pick and choose.”

Winter began dating the 31-year-old Canadian actor in November 2016. Like Winter, Meaden shared with Us how the actress has provided support for him in their relationship. “I’ll run lines with her for sure and she will kind of give me some advice and I’ll ask her how she thinks it’s working out,” he told Us in May 2018.

“We don’t really sit down and discuss [potential projects], it just comes up as we talk and let each other know what’s going on … and get ideas from each other about what we can bring to the character,” he continued. “Just fun, simple ideas.”

Beyond her upcoming final season of Modern Family, one thing the Breaking In star has been supportive of Winter on is her new partnership with the Salon at Ulta Beauty, which is now offering additional blowout services with five signature looks. Winter, who is known to experiment with her hair, described the collaboration to Us as a “natural” move for her since they hold her “same ideas and values.”

“Self-empowerment and self-confidence and inclusivity and diversity are things that are important to Ulta, which are also important to me,” she explained to Us. “I’ve been on my own self-empowerment, self-confidence journey throughout my own life. So I thought it was definitely that fit for me and felt right.”

Two months ago, Modern Family star Ariel Winter debuted her most dramatic hair transformation thus far — having gone from long, jet black waves to bright red ones with fresh layers. Winter told POPSUGAR that it the new look took some getting used to.

“I was definitely scared since it was such a big, huge hair change,” she said. “After it was done . . . I knew I liked it, but it was so drastic and I looked so different. I felt like I didn’t look like me — not in a bad way — but it was just something I had to get used to.”

What she did next was so relatable: “The next day I was walking past my bathroom mirror and saw the red hair was freaked out thinking that someone was in my bathroom,” she said. “I saw a red hair on my bed, and I was like ‘Whose is this?’ And then, you know, remembered it was me.” She ultimately fell in love with the look and that hair is important to her. The newly minted spokesperson for Ulta Beauty’s “The Salon at Ulta” said that one of her go-to rituals to make herself feel beautiful is getting her hair professionally styled. “If I don’t have makeup on or haven’t showered that day — if my hair is done I feel better,” she said. “When my hair is done, or even just blow-dried, it really just makes me feel a little better.” Winter went on to say that she discovered a hair tool that changed the game when it comes to styling her new red hair.

The new spokesperson for “The Salon at Ulta Beauty” explains what she loves about getting her blowout from its new menu. “It works really great with my hair,” she said about the blowout she had gotten, and she explained that she loves the salon’s newest menu for how it caters to different hair types. “If someone has thin hair, it still works for you.”

Winter explained that she discovered a “game-changing” hair tool while on-set for Modern Family. “The Dyson [Supersonic] Hair Dryer ($400) definitely changed the game,” she said. “It definitely dries so much faster than any other hairdryer I’ve ever used.” She went on to explain that the blow dryer dried her hair in five minutes (while it typically takes her 20-25 minutes to have her hair blown out).

For the first time in a decade, Ariel Winter doesn’t know what she’ll be doing next year. The 21-year-old actress stopped attending UCLA after enrolling in fall 2017, because it was too much to juggle with filming Modern Family. For now, she’s focusing on the 11th and final season of the ABC hit comedy, which she’s grown up alongside for the past 10 years as bookworm Alex Dunphy.

“I loved going [to UCLA]; however, I overestimated what I could do at that time.… I wasn’t really able to get to the majority of my classes. It was kind of me just looking at the book, not having any exam notes, just trying to figure it out on my own. I thought it was kind of a waste. Not like going there was a waste, I mean UCLA, I was so so lucky, it’s such an amazing school.… But it just didn’t make sense at the time,” Winter tells The Hollywood Reporter.

She’s planning to audition for more “adult” roles this year and, after the series wraps, is considering producing content or studying for a psychology degree online. Or maybe adopting a bunch more dogs (“I would have a million if I could.”) And as of this week, she’s partnering with Ulta Beauty for in-store blowout services at its salons nationwide.

“It’s strange to think that it’s coming to an end. It will be hard to say goodbye,” she says of Modern Family. “It will be hard to leave that, but I am excited to do new things. I’m excited to play new roles and to do things that challenge me a little more. Alex is a great character but Alex doesn’t change a ton…. I was a kid as Alex on the show and now I’m an adult as Alex, so it’s a little different than the roles I want to play. I don’t want to play kid to adult. I want to just play my age now.”

Though acting in one of the top single-camera network comedies has provided her with a stable job and family of cast and crew, it also “thrust” her in the spotlight during her transformative years.

“I’m not really a fame person. That wasn’t why — that’s not why I do what I do. I like to act. I like to work,” she says. Yet she’s become somewhat of a magnet for haters online, who constantly criticize her body and clothing choices using some rather choice words. And unlike Taylor Swift — who, in her own words, became a “national lightning rod for slut-shaming” and later disabled comments on her Instagram account — Winter leaves her comments on most of the time, because she appreciates the positive notes from fans and interacting with her 3.9 million Instagram followers.

Ariel Winter, 21, is embracing her new look, which consists of a slimmer frame and sexy red hair, and it’s encouraging her to take things up a notch when it comes to her self care. “Ariel has been completely focused on self care, especially within the last year,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “She’s always been extremely confident, but now more so than ever since she has leaned out and toned up. She drinks a lot of water and doesn’t really drink alcohol, either. She also doesn’t go out and party and is usually in bed at a very reasonable hour. She’s very low key and more of a homebody and enjoys eating in or cooking. It’s no surprise she’d want to change her look so drastically with her hair color just because she’s feeling so good about herself.”

Ariel first debuted her long red locks at the beginning of May after leaving a salon, and since then, she’s showed it off on numerous occasion, always looking comfortable and happy. She’s also always showing off her rock hard abs in crop tops, proving she’s not shy at all about flaunting what she’s got! Ariel’s also been very open about her journey in loving her body and even admitted to getting breast reduction surgery in the past, something that’s helped her tremendously.

“It took her body awhile to heal from the breast reduction surgery and as she got older, she found what worked for herself and her body and started doing yoga and pilates more and toned up,” the source continued. “She didn’t really go out of her way to lose weight, but she did. She really takes good care of herself and she’s really, really happy, mostly in thanks to [her boyfriend] Levi Meaden. He makes her feel good all of the time.”

When you enjoy a show on television, you sometimes forget how much time has passed. That’s certainly the case with watching Modern Family. It’s been almost 10 years since the first episode aired back in September of 2009, and so many things have happened on the show and with the Pritchett-Dunphy clan. We’ve literally seen the kids grow up on television, and we’ve grown to consider them part of the family—somehow. It’s sad to say goodbye, but we all know that all good things must come to an end eventually. Modern Family is saying farewell with its 11th season coming this fall.

Given that this will be the last time we’ll see the family get together on screen, we can safely expect crazier times than usual. The show has become quite an iconic series over the years, and it’s managed to stay strong for the entire time it was on the air. We’re pretty sure that there will be lots of tears to be shed and belly laughs to be had, but that’s almost a given on a show like Modern Family. However, EOnline.com reports that there will be plenty of other milestones to be had in this last season. We know that season 10 gave us a glimpse into so many family milestones, but we also thought that season 10 was going to be the final season of the show.

The creators of Modern Family, Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, assured us that we really haven’t seen everything just yet. It’s exciting to think about what could those writers possibly mean, but you could almost cringe at the notion as well. The family has done some pretty outrageous things in the past, and we’re fairly certain that they will take it even farther this season.

The season 10 finale was quite a big one for everyone in the show. This article from MSN.com outlines Sarah Hyland’s big moment in the entire series. Hyland’s character Haley gave birth to twins in the finale, which is a great set up for season 11 to start with. It’s quite a circle of life moment for the show, considering that Hyland’s character was only a kid when Modern Family first aired. Now that the Pritchett-Dunphy clan is growing, we could only cross our fingers for a spinoff announcement before the show completely closes its doors.

We can expect all the original stars to come back. The adults are definitely signed on, and that includes Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet. According to Countryliving.com, the renewal for season 11 relied heavily on the return of all the original kids—Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. Considering that the final season has been announced, we can probably expect every member of the gang to show up. It’ll be a great way to end the series, with all of the family together on screen.

Pamela Anderson has come out in support of Ariel Winter against the “Modern Family” star’s online body shamers.

Winter, 21, stepped out in a black cocktail dress at a party this week, revealing a slimmed-down physique and a stunning new red hairstyle.

But the former child star has been slammed by some online critics over her sudden weight change – including from some who even suggested she’d had plastic surgery, which Winter denied.

Former “Baywatch” star Anderson – who wrote “Stay strong @ArielWinter1” – explained on Twitter, “This social media world is a playground for shamers. It takes no thought or time to hurt people….it goes as far as the President of the United States. He’s definitely set a horrible example of self-restraint.”

Speaking from personal experience, Anderson sympathized, “While we all read our comments and are happy when we receive praise and devastated when someone is mean. And we want to defend ourselves. It’s a waste of energy to engage.”

She continued, “Unfortunately when you are in the public eye you are going to have people judge your every move…I prefer not to look.”

Perhaps alluding to her famous sex tape with former husband Tommy Lee which was stolen and leaked online in 1995, leaving her devastated, Anderson added, “I’ve learned that then (even back then) – your image can get away from you. It can negatively affect your career. Nobody is a cartoon character. We all have imperfect lives, pasts, things we were embarrassed of or want to remain private.”

She concluded, “Beauty is on the inside. And the only thing that is not beautiful is to be caddy [sic], rude, jealous, knee jerk or bully someone.”

Winter, who was 11 when “Modern Family” premiered in 2009, celebrated her 21st birthday in January and posted an Instagram picture of herself in a jumpsuit, which set the trolls off about her weight loss.

One wrote, “Nothing wrong with being honest and telling her we liked her better before ‘the change’ she was so beautiful before she started chopping up her body and if me saying so helps one gurl [sic] out there to feel beautiful who’s thinking of PS then its worth it.”

Winter fired back, “I appreciate you wanting to help girls love themselves the way they are, but you are also kind of cutting someone (me) down.”

“I also didn’t get plastic surgery. That is also not being supportive of women if you’re just assuming something about the way they look.”

“If you don’t stand up for yourself, who’s going to stand up for you?” the Modern Family star said

Ariel Winter already candidly explained exactly why her body has changed over the last year — her weight dropped after changing up her antidepressants — but she’s still dealing with body shamers who accuse her of getting plastic surgery.

The Modern Family star, 21, doesn’t owe people a response, but she says that it’s important to her that she defends herself.

“If you don’t stand up for yourself, who’s going to stand up for you?” Winter told PEOPLE exclusively at the Entertainment Weekly and PEOPLE Upfronts party in New York on Monday night. “Sometimes I stand up for myself a little too much but I’m doing it.”

Winter said that commenters tends to “feel like they know people” like her because they watch her on TV, and believe that they can pass judgement.

“They don’t know people, they know them as a persona onscreen that they see,” she continued to PEOPLE. “On Instagram, people see a photo every once in a while or they see something that a paparazzi took — they don’t know that person. It can get really frustrating when you see things that are untrue or things that are hurtful or even some things that private things that don’t need to be out there.”

Winter added: “It’s nice for all of the fans and the supporters who are kind and supportive, it’s fantastic, but people are quick to judge things that they see on the small screen, it’s difficult.”

And there is another problem with speaking out — people accuse Winter of being “bitchy,” though she doesn’t mind.

“People think you’re bitchy when you stand up for yourself,” she said. You know what? It’s not bitchy, it’s bossy and it’s my body and I get to be that way and there’s nothing bitchy about standing up for yourself and being real. I have no problem with it. I’m boss bitch, we’re all boss bitches.”

Body shaming and plastic surgery accusations are nothing new for Ariel Winter. But after receiving a comment on a recent Instagram post asking her about the cosmetic work she’s had done, Winter responded to shut the critic down.

The 21-year-old had taken to her social media to share a clip from Wednesday night’s season 10 finale of Modern Family. However, the sweet moment quickly turned sour when one person commented on the post asking, “How many surgeries have you had on your body and face now?”

The same Instagram user then went on to write, “Two breast reductions, that’s obvious, cheek bone and chin shaving and lip fillers. Pretty obvious, she looks so different #Truth.”

Winter quickly corrected the commenter to say that the accusations were false.

“I wasn’t going to reply but I HAVE to ask…what the fuck is cheek bone and chin shaving???? You’re also wrong about all of it by the way 🙂 one breast reduction & I lost weight but you do you boo🤷🏻‍♀️😊”

The Little Mermaid — we mean, Ariel Winter — left West Hollywood’s Nine Zero One Salon as a red head on May 3. We’re now drawing celebrity comparisons: Isla Fisher? Florence + the Machine? Emma Stone in the aughts? It was a complete 180 from the coffee brown brunette locks that Modern Family fans have long been familiar with. Despite the dramatic transformation, Ariel, 21, wore a relatively casual ensemble — a criss-cross lace-up top and skinny jeans — for her trip to the salon, which has been visited by fellow A-listers like Demi Lovato, Emma Roberts, Katy Perry and even Ariel’s on-screen sister, Sarah Hyland.

This is actually Ariel’s second go at dying her hair red, which she first did in the summer of 2017. However, her earlier red head phase was much more punk rock — think shades of mahogany and cherry. Ariel’s new hair color is a more traditional red, as it straddles the line between strawberry blonde and Bella Thorne’s Disney hair.

Ariel’s decision to part ways with her brunette hair is almost symbolic, considering that ABC announced that Modern Family was renewed for its 11th and final season on Feb. 5. It’s a new era for the budding star, who has played Alex Dunphy on television for nearly a decade. Ariel is ready to close this chapter in her life, which served as her breakthrough in acting — no matter how frightening that may be. “[Ariel and her co-star Sarah] are excited and scared of the unknown but they love that they can go out on their own terms and finish the story as it should be finished,” a source close to the on-screen sisters EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife after news of the show’s renewal.

As premonition for what was to come, Ariel also rocked red in her outfit just one day prior to her salon visit. The ABC star wore the bright shade on a cropped long-sleeved top, which sported dragon motifs, for an outing in Los Angeles with boyfriend Levi Meaden, 31. We encourage Levi to wear some red too, so that he can look the part of Sebastian now.
