Smash-ing new 'do, Katharine McPhee! Arriving in L.A. on Wednesday, March 27, the actress and American Idol alum debuted a dramatic change in her normally long, chestnut-brown tresses. With her lighter, shorter hair and geek-chic hipster glasses, the Smash star was nearly unrecognizable as she walked through Los Angeles International Airport.

McPhee, 29, rocked a tousled, chin-length bob instead of her usual wavy locks. Her roots were the same dark brown as always, but her tips were a warm auburn color. In addition to the glasses, she wore skinny jeans, denim heels, and a gray sweater over a black oxford shirt.

The "Terrified" singer is no stranger to experimenting with different looks. Three years ago, she dyed her hair platinum blonde in a moment of impulsiveness.

"I was feeling rebellious," she told Shape at the time. That's when I knew I wanted something big. So I said to my stylist, 'Just chop it all off and make me a blonde!' I felt edgy and playful. I went out and bought new clothes for the new me. It was definitely a good thing to do."
