Sofia Vergara has the bombshell waves to match her bombshell curves, so it’s no surprise Head & Shoulders tapped her to be their celebrity face. The actress even included her similarly tress-blessed family in the new campaign, and we have exclusive behind-the-scenes images (like the silly photo above!) to share.

Vergara’s latest TV and print ads launched March 17, and she’s very proud of the result. “This is the first ad campaign that I am starring in alongside my family,” she tells PEOPLE. “Head & Shoulders has been a part of our lives and beauty routine for over 20 years, so it was natural that working with the brand became a family affair. We joke that 8 out of 9 Vergaras use it [the ninth happens to be bald] — and there are a lot of us.”

The star says she’s been using the shampoo and conditioner since high school and even shared an amazing throwback photo, at left, to prove it. “This was in the ’80s, as you can tell,” she says. “I was going to a girlfriend’s birthday party and making my brother take modeling photos of me before I left the house.”

Flash forward to today, and Vergara’s still rocking a healthy, shiny mane (minus the bangs and oversized button-ups). With hair like that, we understand why the Modern Family star is almost always spotted in the same center-parted waves on the red carpet, but she insists she’s not opposed to updos. “I would consider doing an updo in the future. It just hasn’t fit into any of the looks I have wanted to create for the red carpet,” she says. “And of course, it is more comfortable when it is down.”

But don’t expect to see her with a pixie or bob anytime soon. “I can’t really make any dramatic changes because of Modern Family, unless Gloria cuts her hair.”

And as for her wedding day beauty look, Vergara says she’s still working that out. “I think it all depends on the dress. It all has to work together and you can’t really pick a hairstyle before picking the dress.”

What do you think of Vergara’s newest campaign? How do you think she should wear her hair on her wedding day? Share your thoughts below!

I have to believe that Sofia is not really a human being. Probably an alien Goddess sent here to show us human schleps how to get better with age. ;)

SofĂ­a would look good even with a bag over her head.

I’ve seen numerous interviews where she says she’s a natural blond and does her hair for acting roles. Must have been dying it as a teen too. Hmm. That must be Hispanic blond, but brown to a Caucasian.

she’s drag queen chic.

Kay, I’m a Caucasian and I consider that to be blonde. I know yellow from brown; I can’t understand why others whites disagree. I believe the blonde is the fake haircolor, not the brown of her teen years.

How many products is this lady going to endorse? Is there anything she won’t hawk to make money? And no her hair is a light brown not blonde.. she just says she’s a natural blonde to appeal to white audiences.

SOFIA VERGARA is one of the most beautiful actress in Hollywood. She’s awesome!! Hollywood loves Sofia.

The photo you describe as “funny” (where she is rubbing her hair on a woman’s face), I find offensive. This is behavior consistent with her persona. Many people (and I am one), find her obnoxious!

I love Sofia but she really needs to go back to last water, her eyebrows look like they are going for a unibrow. I feel bad for saying this but it’s been bugging me all season I normally don’t comment on anyone’s appearance but I had to get this one out

Waxer, not water

I think she should wear it down. Put curls in,then she can have a great time, not worrying about it coming undone. With all the dancing she will be doing. Congrats on your wedding.

She is the most obnoxious woman. I saw her in an old movie with 2 other Latina women, she barely had an accent. I love the show, but have to mute it when she opens her mouth!!!
