Kate Gosselin on Her Hair: "Everybody Wants It"

First there was “The Farrah,” then “The Rachel,” and now, “The Gosselin”? Jon & Kate Plus Eight‘s famous mom is known almost as much for her amped up, asymmetrical hairdo as her brood of eight kids — and recent marital scandals. And when the PEOPLE cover-star sat down with Entertainment Weekly recently to talk about living in a fishbowl, she also dished on her distinctive do. While the reality star doesn’t reveal whether she’s actually named the look, she does respond, “It’s my attitude! Everybody wants it. It’s work.” The secret to getting the style right? “I have very, very thick hair, so it’s not going to work for everybody. I’ve seen people come through the book line with thin hair and [it] just won’t work. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country.” Tell us: Do you want to try Kate’s look?

Full of yourself or WHAT?!
“Everybody wants it?!” I guess that makes me nobody.
She looks ridiculous. Her hair? Schizophrenic at best. I hate the lowlights. I hate the fact that it’s SUPER short in the back, and then falls into her eyes at the front. How can she see?
If you’re going to have short hair. Have short hair. Not half-short, half-sort of long hair.
Ridiculous, Narcissistic, Suspected Adulteress.
It’s no wonder her husband goes out with other women. I wouldn’t want to deal with that attitude either.
Let’s hope none of her kids inherited it.

WTF? on

It seems to me that having a hairdo like this would take longer to do in the morning than if she would grow her hair out a little and just leave it straight!!

It’s not a hair style I would choose but it works for her!!

I had that hairstyle…. Seven years ago! Gwyneth Paltrow first had it in the movie ‘Sliding Doors’ which was my inspiration for it. It was much thinner up front on Gwyneth, and myself — and longer but with volume in the back- NO spikes. Kate would look so much cuter with a short bob. The spikes are NOT a cute look!!

I absolutly HATE her hair. I hate it more than any other “celebrity” ever. I would NEVER do that to my own hair!

Christina on

OMG….it looks like a reverse side mullet! Seriously! Who would want that?!?!

Are you joking, this can’t be true. Who in their right mind would want that horrible hair cut? I cannot believe people are calling her stylist to get that cut. I think Kate is a beautiful lady, but that hair has got to go. It looks as though she is trying to grow it out in the front, and she can’t see the back, so, she cuts it herself…LOL…HORRIBLE!!!!

Maybe this marital spat is a stunt for her to be a household name. Before last week, I had no idea who this person is.
Her hair is okay. Definitely not iconic.
