Oh boy do we love a fresh chop right before the holidays. Ariel Winter just got bangs and we couldn’t be more thrilled — because nothing says “new year, new you” quite like a new ‘do!

The Modern Family actress attended the Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night wearing a stunning (illusion) back-baring gown and rocking choppy new fringe by stylist Jonathan Colombini. With her hair pulled back in a simple, loose top knot, Ariel was really able to show off her new bangs — what Colombini called a “’60s vibe.” We love!

Ariel teased her new ‘do on her Instagram story yesterday, sharing a cute video with fellow Modern Family cast member Jesse Tyler Ferguson.


And, of course, she sparkled on the red carpet in a gown by Uel Camilo.

Check out the front…

So. Gorge.

When we spotted Ariel’s new bangs, they instantly reminded us of the fringe Kendall Jenner was rocking back in September. Though Ariel’s bangs are a bit fuller, both ‘dos have the same choppy, rocker vibe going on — and incidentally, they share a hair stylist!

Gotta love that ’90s realness.

Many members of the Modern Family cast were on hand at the awards show last night, including Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Noel Gould. The show was nominated for Best Comedy Series for the third time, though sadly it lost out to Silicon Valley.

At least we can say for sure that Ariel won the award for Best Hair!
