Hacking off one's hair can be so pleasantly liberating.
And we wonder if Katharine McPhee was going for a specific kind of liberation when she chopped off her wavy shoulder-length tresses in favor of a chin-length bob.
Is this a kiss-off to Smash? Or an adios to winter?
Regardless of the reason, we gotta admit we rather like this blunt cut as juxtaposed against Katharine's delicate bone structure.
The actress showed it off at LAX airport on Wednesday in a geek-chic outfit of collared shirt and gray sweater paired with hipster-y glasses.
But check out her footwear! Patchwork blue suede booties with side cut-outs!
Are U feeling Katharine's new 'do???
