Katharine McPhee's faux bob could fool even the most seasoned hairstylist. By styling her layers in tousled waves, it appears the Smash star had a meeting with the scissors — but it's all an illusion. The shorter top layers perfectly disguise her tucked-under style. Plus, the addition of three bold-coloured bobby pins is both functional and fashionable. Similar hair accessories were spotted on the Rodarte runway, and we've found a near match to Katharine's with the Mimco Pin Pack in Neon Mix ($19.95).
It's easy to play with brightly coloured bobbies, try criss-crossing them or just layering them side by side for a graphic look. Katharine proves you don't have to stick to one colour — she stacked yellow, fuchsia, and lime green pins for a fresh take on the trend. She completed her look with clean makeup and classic red lipstick. Sometimes all you need is a spot of colour.
