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

You are a dark haired girl, Keep it that way the blonde did nothing for you. Long hair or short hair your still pretty.(dark hair)

it is a slow day at the office of gossip…when her hair colour is being mentioned…we do not care!…she has not done well…and hopefully she gets media attention with anything…what is next week? her wearing a bikini? really get a life!

I guess she finally realised that being a blonde made her look cheap! I’m sorry girl. But you are so beautiful in your natural way, and blonde really isn’t the color for you! It might be the color for many girls, but not for you. Blondes look amazing when they look natural and your blonde color made you look like call girl from vegas. Keep your natural beautiful brown hair, let grow longer and stronger and curly!Period.

Its ok to have short hair, but at least make it a cute cut….its just so blah makes her much uglier…and she didnt have the skin color for blonde….she should fire her stylist…sub par work for sure!!!! and there is a way to go blonde without killing your hair completely so much so that she had to chop it of….seriously…get a new stylist!!!!
