It's Back to Brunette for Katharine McPhee

Katharine McPhee has gone (back) to the dark side. After transforming into a platinum blonde last August for her album Unbroken, McPhee went back to brunette on March 24–the day before her 26th birthday–for another work project. She’ll play a girl-next-door pharmaceutical rep in the NBC comedy pilot The Pink House, which shoots this month. “It’s always nice to have a reason to go back,” McPhee tells PEOPLE of the change, which is a rich shade of brown that’s a little lighter than her natural color. “I loved having blonde hair–it’s so much fun.” But there’s one thing McPhee won’t miss: “Blonde was pretty hard on my hair,” she admits. “I guess my hair is thanking me now!” Tell us: Which color do you prefer on Katharine?–Marisa Laudadio

This look is not much better..She has such natural beauty that was so evident in her early pics..she looks like Julia Roberts in that movie Hook..

Tsuz on

Never liked her with blonde hair. Just not a good look for her.

Alex on

These celebrities are so self absorbed..they think the whole world revolves around them. Millions of women change their hair color..why is she discussing this???

Britini on

I never minded the color..its the haircut I hate! But if she like it, oh well.

Feefee on

Hated the blond Kat, so for me love the brunette but love YOU either way!

Silvia on

The haircut is just fine, but she used to have such a beautiful hair,so I just don´t get it.
Just a comment.

Brunette is so much better on

I like her so much better as a brunette, it really highlights her lovely features. However, I agree with some other posters, the haircut is still not right for her. I think she is pretty with short of long hair, but with short I think it has to be the perfect haircut for her to pull it off. This haircut just isn’t it.
