It’s been over a month since Katharine McPhee gave PEOPLE an exclusive sneak peek at her new platinum look on her album cover. Yet she still managed to wait until Fashion Week to reveal the look on the red carpet. Katharine spoke with PEOPLE backstage at the Tommy Hilfiger show in Manhattan’s Bryant Park tents about what prompted her to trade her signature sexy brunette style for being a blonde-bobbed bombshell. “I have a record coming out in January called Unbroken,” she explains, “and I’ve been working on it for the last year and it’s been a big artistic development. It sort of felt like I was shedding skin, so I was literally shedding layers of hair.” Tell us: What do you think of Katharine’s blonde hair? –Reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

Love her music, hate the hair.

The blonde hair does not look good at all. Her hair was so beautiful before. Sometimes change is good, but in this case – not so much.

I love Catherine but she looks like most of us normal people look when we can’t figure out what to do with our hair. Why do these beautiful brunettes feel like going blonde is the thing to do? Kim Kardasian, Jessica Alba and now Catherine…

Her hair looks FRIED!!! I dont like it at all! I’m glad she is coming out with a new album because her voice is incredible, but seriously….Her new hairdo/color is making a statement – BUT NOT A GOOD ONE!!! Bring back the Long Beautiful Brown Locks!!

I think her hair looks so horrible, it looks like a dry stack of hay on her head. She needs to go back to being a brunette.

Tara on

Lauren on

OMG!!!!!!!! Not her look at all. She had such beautiful hair!!



Jana on

Do not like it at all! Go back to your beautiful brown hair.

She is a beautiful lady and I loved her hair when she had it long and dark. Her Blonde hair just does not look good and I noticed that she cut her hair short. Anyway she is a pretty lady and a great voice. Good luck to you Katherine and I wish you lots of good success and happiness.
