Katharine McPhee, aka Karen Cartwright, “has the most beautiful hair I’ve ever worked with,” says the show’s on-set stylist, Clariss Morgan. Her hair is cut into long layers all around the perimeter with a c-shape in front so she can wear it to either side. To add lift and bring out her hair’s natural fullness, Morgan applies Sebastian Whip Mousse before scrunching it with a diffusor. Next, she adds Kerastase Thermique Nectar, a nourishing leave-in heat-protectant. “I go over it with a 1 ½”-2” curling iron,” says the stylist. “For night scenes, I’ll make it curlier, but when she’s in rehearsal, I’ll use a 3” iron to smooth out the wave for a more relaxed look.”
