🎶Hello from the darker side 🎶

Sarah Hyland, 25, recently put a photo on Instagram showing off her new hairstyle, a black bob. The last time we saw her she was a brunette with highlights, but last year she had more dirty blonde hair. This is a definite change for her. The difference is striking and she looks a bit like an anime character with those big winged eyes and that perfectly shaggy cut.

US Magazine reports that Sarah recently wrapped filming on season seven of Modern Family, she posted the photo below just a day ago.

And that's a wrap on season 7 for #modernfamily ❤️ The Dunphy kids. See you for 8!

So does this mean she just wanted a hair change or is this new look for a role? IMDB has her starring in some Coachella road trip horror/thriller movie (really that’s the plot) called Satanic, which seems like a likely candidate for this hair color, but filming on that has supposedly wrapped. She’s also set to play Lisa Houseman in the Dirty Dancing TV Movie. (You may remember that Abigail Breslin is starring as Baby.) Note that this isn’t yet another live musical, it’s a three hour pretaped TV movie. Lisa Houseman was Baby’s older sister and she had black hair, so this new hair could be for that role. Whatever the reason, she looks gorgeous. She has one of those faces which looks good with just about any style.

Sarah is dating Dominic Sherwood, 26, after meeting him on the set of Vampire Academy in 2014. A couple of weeks ago the two gushed about each other on the red carpet, which each of them saying that the other made them want to be a better person. Aww. They’re so cute together too.

    She really is ridiculously beautiful. I get mad at stylists when she doesn’t live up to her red carpet potential.

    • tegteg says:

      I know, right? Often times, I think she looks on point though. She is sooo pretty, it’s not fair! Her look is very unusual too – she reminds me of Amanda Seyfried in that regard (not that they actually look too similar appearance wise, other than large eyes).

  2. Tate says:

    I think she looks cute.

  3. Kate says:

    I think she looks better with a softer brown hair color but the dark isn’t terrible on her.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I like it. She looked fine with the other color, but the black adds something nice.

  5. D says:

    Does he have one blue eye and one brown eye, or does it just look like it in that photo?

    • Pinky says:

      Good catch. Wtf?

      She looks beautiful whatever her hair color/cut.


      • D says:

        I just looked it up on imdb – “Dom has two different colored eyes as a result of heterochromia: a blue one and a half-blue half-brown one.” Cool 🙂

      • melodycalder says:

        Yes, he is also seen in the taylor swift “style” video and is now starring on shadowhunters. I like him a lot. Also, I feel like she is much prettier on film than in still pics. She is stunning.

    • Mimi says:

      My niece met Dominick Sherwood. She won tickets to the premiere of VA. Apparently, he’s a really nice guy.

    • Ayra. says:

      Yep, he has heterochromia.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    I like it. I think she looks good with darker hair, the blond she tried didn’t really work as well.

  7. Kate says:

    I think it suits her, makes her look a bit older, which she needs if she’s going to start getting more adult roles.

  9. Esmom says:

    I like the black hair and that IG shot is insanely beautiful.

    Having not watched for a couple seasons, it’s startling to see how the MF kids are so grown up now, sob.

  10. Mimz says:

    I like the haircut and the hair seems suitable. Need to see it without all the filters though. It’s a nice change 🙂

  11. RandomGirl says:

    She looks like the mom from How I Net Your Mother in the Instagram picture. She’s so pretty, I really like her character on Modern Family.

  12. Incognito says:

    I have hair envy now. I love the color and the cut and it looks great on her. She looks great with the brown color too, but I wasn’t a fan of her blonde color. She is gorgeous.

  13. Miran says:

    She looks cute, with her face there is not much she couldnt pull off.

  14. Snowflake says:

    She’s gorgeous, she looks great either way.

  15. jm says:

    Man she is crazy beautiful…anyone else notice that all the child stars from both ed o’neill shows turned out well adjusted? I guess there is still time with these kids, but I wonder if there is something to that

  16. Gaby says:

    Gorgeous! Great chance for her

  17. NeoCleo says:

    I like the black hair. It almost makes her look like an anime character.

  18. Chris says:

    Beautiful! Glad to see she looks happy and healthy after dealing with health issues and that stalker ex. Yay 🙂

  19. The New Classic says:

    Is her boyfriend the guy from that one Taylor Swift video I can’t remember? His eyes are beautiful!

  20. Bobo says:

    It suits her. She has an exotic beauty about her. Similar to Mila Kunis.

  21. Lex says:

    Ahhh I love the cut!! My fine limp hair would never stay like that without some sort of chemical wave semi-perm. Sigh…

  22. kiliki says:

    I find her impossible not to like. She cheers me up on a weekly basis because Modern Family is my absolute favorite show. I love her work, I love her face. She’s such a survivor too, and what a unique beauty.

  23. DesertReal says:

    I love the color and the cut! It makes the features of her face pop more. The previous dirty blonde and mousy brown looked too painted/contrived and the color was too close to her olive complexion. The black makes her eyes pop so much now, especially compared to before.
    But then again most people tend to look better with darker hair in my opinion.

  24. unicorn says:

    She looks even more beautiful and those gorgeous eyes look even larger!! Totally love Modern Family and her!!
