Sofia Vergara: Her Best Hair?

So great they had to name her twice, Sofía Margarita Vergara Vergara was born July 10, 1972, in Barranquilla, Colombia. The Emmy nominated Latina’s luxurious locks and sassy sense of humor (“Jay!”) have been spicing up episodes of ABC’s Modern Family since 2009.


Sometimes, life’s a beach, like when you’re just cruising along one and a photographer discovers you. Right away, Sofía, who was in her late teens at the time, landed a Pepsi commercial that aired throughout Latin America. The commercial led to runway and catalog work, and then to a job co-hosting a travel series on the international Univisión Spanish-language television network, which made her a fixture on international TV.


A young mom at 19 living in an unstable country at the time (her older brother was murdered in 1998 in an unresolved crime), Sofía took an opportunity with Univisión to move to Miami, and when her contract with the network ended, she went to work for ABC.

Like Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, the character she plays on Modern Family, Sofía usually wears her hair long, dark and wavy, but she’s actually a natural blonde. On why she chose to go dark, she says, “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. It was ignorance: They thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek. The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, ‘Oh, she’s the hot Latin girl.'”

I think she looks just as great as a blonde. 🙂

    I just started watching Modern Family after the Emmys this week, and Gloria is a hoot! I can see why the show won so many awards. She looks amazing no matter what she does with her hair.

    i might be a minority here, but she kinda gets on my nerves. 🙂

    I honestly thought she was older than that. I am so shocked to find out she’s only a year older than me. Makes me wonder about the makeup. Sometimes (even though I love, love it), I think too much makeup has the opposite effect, aging the wearer instead of beautifying her.
