Sarah Hyland got a haircut two weeks ago, which she's using to show off a short version of her naturally curly hair. It's a stark change from her Modern Family Haley look and the straight hair she often sports on red carpets—before she made the switch, Sarah said (opens in new tab) it was time for a new lewk and to take out Haley's extensions (I also looooove the short summer haircut with an abiding passion, so I feel this very strongly). Plus, her boyfriend Wells Adams loves it, so everything is perfect, right? NOPE, because people apparently think it's a perm, and Sarah is not here for that.

In response to a fan's tweet (opens in new tab) that referenced Hyland showing off her "permed hair," she clapped back: "I’d like to say this once. IT’S NOT A PERM. IT’S JUST MY HAIR."

I find this intriguing—Sarah has had curly hair before, both in its long and short forms, but I guess it's just so curly now that it's wigging people out? (Corny pun intended, sorry.)

Here's Sarah with her hair straight for comparison:

Lol—poor Sarah. You tell 'em! As a fellow curly girl, I understand.
