American Idol: Katharine McPhee Changes Hair Back To Brunette For NBC Pilot

April 05, 2010 09:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


American Idol alum Katharine McPhee is no longer a blonde! The celeb, who dyed her hair platinum blonde last fall for the release of her new album Unrboken, has returned to her roots…literally. The star is back to being a brunette and she has NBC to thank for it…

Do blondes really have more fun? American Idol star, Katharine McPhee certainly seemed to enjoy her new blonde hair over the past couple months, but now it’s back to being a brunette! The singer recently dyed her hair brown for the filming of her new NBC pilot, The Pink House. The new hair color is a chestnut shade of brown that’s slightly lighter than McPhee’s original color.

The American Idol star dyed her hair brunette on March 24th, the day before her 26th birthday. The reason for the change from blonde to brunette? Work. McPhee will begin filming The Pink House, a new pilot with NBC sometime this month. In the comedy, McPhee will play Emily, a down-to-earth Midwestern gal trying to make it in Los Angeles. “It’s always nice to have a reason to go back,” McPhee tells PEOPLE about the hair change.

While the American Idol star enjoys having a reason to return to brunette, she did enjoy her time as a blonde. “I loved having blonde hair–it’s so much fun,” McPhee says. There is, however, an upside to ditching the platinum blonde look for something more natural. “Blonde was pretty hard on my hair,” she admits. “I guess my hair is thanking me now!”
