Wow…it appears there are a LOT of messed up people in this world who are either too lazy to read the truth or too dumb to understand it. First-now try and let this sink in you complainers: Kate did this while it was Jon’s time with the kids, second-she did not pay for it-it is fantastic free advertising for the hairstylist and he works for TLC and, third, she is doing this WHILE her short hair grows in!!!! (Therefore they are temporary extensions UNTIL her hair grows!!!!) That pretty much stops all the ridiculous whining and complaining you “strangers to Kate” are repeating and repeating and repeating. Whether you like her hair or not-totally irrelevant because everyone has different tastes and, last time I checked, here in America we can wear our hair how we want to.I give any woman who has been thru the mess with Jon a huge credit for keeping in a positive forward direction. Woman should be supporting her-while he drinks, drugs and sleeps with any under 25 year old who will have him.If your big issue is that you do not like Kate’s hairdo-your life is very sad and I feel sorry for you.

Aren’t we lucky to live in a free nation where we can express out opinions and aren’t we all, myself included. dealing with too much time on our hands to be worrying about someone like Kate Gosselin ? Whether we like her or not, her hair will not impact anything in the world for better or worse other than maybe increasing her hairdresser’s revenue for the year. This woman is an incredibly polarizing person and that is not really a good thing in general and especially when discussing on blogs where mudslinging is anonymous. People either really dislike her or blindly love everything about her no matter what she does. It would be nice to see some perception coming from the middle.

that is not a good look. the choppy different lengths. it looks so fake & so unhealthy. you can tell even she didnt like it. or she would have screeched or something. that guy is a professional?? thats awful. id want my money back & go back to the reverse mullet if i was kate. or let it grow out naturally like somebody else mentioned. extensions are just bizarre to me.

I’m not crazy about the haircut, but she definitely looks better with the long hair. Others may say she looks younger with the short length, but I beg to differ. But long or short, it’s nice to see Kate with a NEW and fresh look. It’s about time! You go Kate! Glad to see you making positive changes for 2010. And about her personality..she may come off a bit blunt and abrasive, but what to you expect from a mother of 8?! We also can’t forget to mention that her husband has left, and she is trying to keep things together for her kids (all under the eye of the media.) She has no choice but to be a strong woman. And that doesn’t make her a B****!

$7,000 would almost pay for textbooks for the 8 kids for one year in university. Oh, well, she will ask the taxpayers to take care of that after all she did have 6 kids at once so that makes the government responsible for her.

Looking at it from another viewpoint, being a b***h doesn’t mean you are strong. Abrasive, blunt people have a tendency to not care much about how they make other people feel which is very emotionally immature. Some of the softest spoken, kindest people I know have shown great strength during a crisis. Whether she is trying to hold it together or not, I hope she is able to treat her children with a kinder attitude.

So typical…when she gets married she no longer cares to impress her husband and so she cuts her hair into an atrocious short style with no appeal what so ever and now that she is single again (if you can ever be actually be single again after giving birth to 8 children)she has her hair in a much a more attractive feminine longer hair look in an attempt to appeal to men…however knowing what her true nature is like, and how she treats men, would be enough to turn most guys off…long flowing hair or not.

Kate got what is known as fusion extentions. With a hair color as light as Kates they should have never put them on her. If she was set on them they should have darkened her hair as a darker color is more forgiving with the shorter layers in the back.That would have disguised the line where her hair meets the extentions. Also, it looks as though they did not pair down the extentions before adding them to her hair. They should have cut them in half before adding them and that would have fixed the bulk look that we all see. If in fact she paid $7000 for those she should ask for her money back. I have seen cosmo students who could do a better job than that. Kate had the right idea…it just was not executed well.
