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

Long and dark! Blond hair does not look good with her skin tone.

Katherine McPhee looked very unnatural as a blonde. I much prefer the brown. Perhaps when she is a lot older and goes gray, she’ll look okay as a blonde.

brunette, i think it fits her best. but i loved her natural hair color, not the light but the dark brunette on

I did not like blonde on her at all. Women have to take in consideration skin tone and eye color. The color looked to harsh on her and unnatural. I always thought she looked better as a brunnette or if she wanted to go lighter to stay in the brown shade family.
