Hyland has been acting since she was five years old, with her first role as Howard Stern's daughter in the film Private Parts. She went on in her career to portray such roles as Molly in the 1999 television remake of Annie, and has played Brooke Shields' daughter, Maddie Healy, in Lipstick Jungle on NBC. Hyland is featured in an Olive Garden commercial along with actress Molly Culver, and has also appeared on Broadway playing the young Jacqueline Bouvier in Grey Gardens the musical.

Hyland currently plays Haley Dunphy on the ABC sitcom Modern Family, for which she and the rest of the show's cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series from 2011 through 2013.
