Sofia Vergara is getting back to her roots–literally: The Modern Family actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to debut fresh light blonde highlights. The shade is quite the change from those chocolate-brown locks we were so accustomed to, but it’s actually closer to Vergara’s natural color.

“Blond ambitions!! Gracias to the amazing Kelly Klain I’m ready for summer!” Vergara shared along with a sultry shot of her lightened hair, in which she appears with little makeup and in a casual off-the-shoulder top.

Perhaps the Colombian-born actress is trying to break down stereotypes? She’d previously said that she dyed her naturally blonde hair because “It didn’t match the Hollywood stereotype for a Latina woman.”

Vergara also added, “I think I should have always had dark hair.” But we have to respectfully disagree with the actress since she looks so pretty with these summer-ready strands.

The actress’s Instagram and Twitter followers had lots of love for the her new look, but we want to know what you think. Does Vergara look better with dark hair or highlights?

@Annabelle, my naturally blonde sister has ALWAYS had dark eyebrows, even when she was a little kid. People come in all styles.

hehehe this is actually how I remember her, she looks better blonde cause it really softens her face up and looks more sensual!

Anyone who thinks she’s a NATURAL blonde at her age is just dumb!!! She may have had golden hair as a child but there’s no way that’s her natural hair now, it’s either brown or grey naturally now.

I like her hair better brown, but either way she looks so good!

Gosh, she looks about 20 in the pic to the left. Love her hair both ways….

I love the blond hair! I think she looks younger. Her shirt isn’t an off the shoulder shirt though….

Yawn, take some pride in yourself, Latina. Now you look like every other so-so, jiggly “actress” out there. Hiding behind your chest and your fake run-of-the-mill hair. Let’s see some real women wear their dark hair with pride. Especially Latinas.

She is a white latina practically European, so naturally she is blonde.

I just don’t see it, I think she looks better as a brunette. I doubt she could ever not look good, but I don’t see her looking so much younger as a blonde. imo looks so much better as a brunette.
