Who says you can't go short for fall?

Bobs and lobs (that's short for long bob) were certainly one of the hottest hair trends for spring and summer, but they're still quite popular in autumn.

And the latest star to join the short hair club is actress Ariel Winter.

The 18-year-old bid farewell to her signature, long-flowing locks as she chopped her hair into a shoulder-skimming 'do.

The new sleek and short style is quite a change for the "Modern Family" star, who has kept her hair long since she's been in the spotlight.

But that doesn't mean Winter is afraid to experiment when it comes to her hair. In fact, the actress loves to change up her look with bold color.

The 18-year-old has had some fun with shades of red, blond and even streaks of green over the years.

As of now, her hair is back to it's naturally dark brown hue, giving her quite a sophisticated and grown-up look.

There's no word yet on what exactly inspired Winter to make the big chop, but if we had to guess it's as simple as she just wanted a change.

"Never do something because somebody else says you should. Never change anything because someone else says it will make you better. Always do something because it’s your own choice and because you feel right about it. And follow your own heart. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true," Winter told TODAY.
