Looks like blonde ambitions don't fade so easy. While the rest of the world is currently considering going for a darker hair color to welcome fall, Sarah Hyland has boldly ventured in the opposite direction by trading her warm brunette hue for a pale gold. Though it looks dramatic by comparison, it's just one step in her journey back to solid blonde. "It was just a touch-up, but it looks like a change. It's always best to do it in stages so the hair remains healthy," explains her hairstylist Nikki Lee of Nine Zero One salon. "I turned her into a golden goddes so she's fresh and ready for the Emmys! I think it looks dreamy with her skin tone." The feeling is mutual, and we can't wait to see how it looks once her strands reach their final form. Check out Hyland's new 'do below, and see even more celebrity hair makeovers in our gallery.
