But this just in: the Modern Family star has taken another step in her transition into Ariel by dying her hair red.
The actress was spotted out and about in L.A. with her bae, Levi Meaden rocking her brand new 'do.
Not sure if Ariel Winter or The Little Mermaid!
Her Modern Family character, Alex Dunphy usually rocks lush dark locks.
We wonder if she'll don a wig for the next season of the show or if Alex will make the mermaid change too.
