As quarantine continues to separate us from our hairdressers, many of us have been experimenting with new looks at home ourselves - and celebrities are no exception. Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has just dyed her hair a stunning shade of cherry pink, and as she showed off the results on Instagram, she looked like a completely different person. “‘I wanna be where the people are…” #QuaranTINT crew (I did this all by myself! Very proud),” she wrote on Instagram, referencing a song from Disney’s The Little Mermaid - and we’re sure Ariel would approve of the actress joining the redhead club - the new look certainly makes her green eyes pop!

If you fancy copying Sarah and doing your own dye job at home, now’s the perfect time. After all, if you decide cherry pink’s not the right shade for you, no-one outside your household need see it. Semi-permanent dye will fade out over time - just remember to test a strand of hair first to see the effect, since the final colours will differ depending on your hair shade. Use protective gloves and be careful not to stain the scalp and keep the colour away from the skin at the hairline and nape of the neck.

Sarah’s change of image is something of a big deal for the 29-year-old star, who very rarely strays far from her natural brunette. She did experiment with blonde highlights in 2018 but she didn’t keep the sun-kissed look for long, before going back to her tried and tested raven locks.

It just goes to show that taking a risk and trying something new is well worth it. We’ll be watching with interest to see if Sarah keeps the new colour once lockdown is over - or maybe she’ll even try a different vibrant shade?
