If your schedule is anything like ours, then today marks your first full week back at the ol' rise-and-grind in what feels like, well, an eternity. (Okay, only two weeks. But still...) And let's face it, if waking up this morning wasn't tough enough, by Humpday, it's going to take everything just to roll out of bed, sweep your hair in a ponytail, and call it one of those days. 

But before you throw all hopes for a good hairday out the window, check out Katharine McPhee's look at the NBCUniversal 2013 Winter TCA Tour this weekend:

NBCUniversal's Note McPhee's choice of, uh, interesting footwear...

While we can't say we're digging her KStew-inspired ensemble—a high-low-hemmed cheetah-print dress with studded sneakers? Huh?—the singer salvaged our love with this quirky-cute and ultra-refreshing hair trick: colored bobby pins!

2013 Winter TCA Tour - Day 3
The pop of color puts such a fun twist on the pinned-back-bangs look, no? We especially love these Scunci no-slip grip pins ($2.79 at HairFlairBoutique.com) for their shorter silhouette and pretty pastel hue. Pair three different-colored ones together a la McPhee—and voila! An instant update to your mid-week-slump style in just seconds. 

Tell us, how are you planning to do your hair this week? What tips/tricks do you use to push through tough weeks? And finally, will you be giving this cute trick a try? Let's discuss in the comments, below!
