“Yes,” it’s more fun to be blonde, Katharine McPhee told PEOPLE at a Calvin Klein Collection, Cinema Society and Sony Pictures Classics-hosted screening of Broken Embraces at the Crosby Street Hotel on Tuesday night. But is it more work to stay blonde? McPhee also answered with a decided, “Yes!” So how often does the singer have to visit her colorist to maintain her platinum locks? “Depending on what I have going on,” she said, “every three-and-a-half, four weeks. Right now I’m almost at the too dark roots stage. So I get to play around with hats.” The short coif is also relatively new. “Peter Savitt cuts my hair. This is the same haircut I had during Fashion Week, but it’s just been growing out and I’ve been flattening it.” But changing up her do has provided a surprising side effect — throwing off the paparazzi! McPhee revealed, “I’ve gone for a doctor’s appointment in Beverly Hills. And they say, ‘Oh, don’t go out that way. there are tons of paparazzi.’ And I say, ‘Don’t worry, they won’t recognize me.’ It’s been nice.” Vote on more star hair changes here!–Jeffrey Slonim

Katharine, PLEASE go back to your natural color. Blonde does not suit you! Your shiny, brunette locks are begging to come out– set them free!

She looks very average with short blonde hair. He natural hair color and style was absolutely beautiful. I don’t understand why people feel the need to mess with perfection. She looks ..well..blah. Let it grow out and change it back ASAP!!
