Sofía Vergara’s Hair Is a Striking Blonde Color in This Throwback She Shared to Instagram

Thanks to the many throwbacks Sofía Vergara shares to Instagram, we've learned that she really hasn't changed much over the years. However, if there's one thing that she's adapted the most, it's got to be her hair.

From straight caramel locks to curly auburn waves, we've seen Vergara rock a lot of different styles throughout her career. But her latest post proves that long before her Modern Family days, Vergara used to sport a dramatically different color.

The 49-year-old star recently shared a throwback that was taken in her birth country of Colombia. To celebrate the upcoming Carnaval festival, Vergara pulled out this vintage pic, where she's seen donning a gorgeous sequined dress and sporting a super blonde hair color. In her caption, she said, “Ya casi comienza el carnaval en mi tierra! Me haces falta Barranquilla!! #tbt #carnavaldebarranquilla” (which translates to: “Carnaval has almost begun in my land! I miss you Barranquilla!!”).

Along with the rare throwback of herself, Vergara added an additional treat by including a photo of her son, Manolo Gonzalez Vergara. The second shot in the slideshow shows Vergara's 30-year-old when he was just a young boy, wearing vibrant blue and yellow garments with lace hemlines. Meanwhile, his cheeks are covered in powder and blush makeup.

The canine clothing developer actually shared the same photo to his own account, where he jokingly said, “#TB to my first athleisure outfit.”

We loved this rare opportunity to see Vergara and her son from years past. While we're used to seeing Vergara with brown hair, the actress has previously revealed that she's actually a natural blonde.

She told Self magazine, “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...Being brunette toned me down a bit.”

We'll be curious to see if Sofía ever returns to her blonde roots one day (and TBH, we would love to see it).
