New year means a new look for Sofia Vergara. The Modern Family kick started her birthday celebrations with a new haircut. “New haircut. Gracias #KellyKlain,” the Colombian beauty captioned a selfie that showed off her new bangs on Sunday, July 9. Sofia, who turns 45 on July 10, gazed into the camera, showing off her smoky eye makeup that complemented the cut.

The CoverGirl spokeswoman's lashes were lengthened with layers of mascara, while her bottom lids were outlined with a subtle dark pencil. A sweep of rose-hued blush drew attention to the apples of her cheeks. Sofia completed her look with a perfectly groomed brow. In a second photograph taken to mark her birthday, Joe Manganiello’s wife showed off her sense of humor as she played around with her new hair – this time comparing herself to La Chilindrina from the Mexican comedy show El Chavo del Ocho.

In the picture, the actress styled her hair in two pigtails, captioning the shot: "I stole her look."  Sofia, a natural blonde, dyed her hair darker when she first started out in the industry. Back in 2010, during an interview with Self magazine, she explained: "I'm a natural blonde, but when I started acting, I would go to auditions, and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent -- but I had blonde hair. The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, 'Oh, she's the hot Latin girl.'” "I loved it," she continued. "Being brunette toned me down a bit."
