Kate Gosselin Is Keeping Her Locks Long -- And Her Options Open

01/13/2010 at 02:53 PM ET


Anyone expecting to see Kate Gosselin return to her former notorious, asymmetrical short hair style is in for a long wait. The reality star says she is loving her new, longer locks. “I love my new hair,” Gosselin tells PEOPLE, adding that she’s particularly enjoying it now that she’s embraced a more naturally curly style. “Curly hair is definitely more ‘me’ and more manageable,” she says. “I learned that almost all hair extensions are curly and by ‘going with’ the curl and adding some more curls, it’s easiest.” The new look, created by celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson and his team, reminds Kate of the last time she had long hair — when she was still in her twenties. “My last long hair endeavor was crazy curly — just like it is now,” she says. “So this feels like the younger me — yay!” Now Kate has almost gotten used to her newest incarnation. “Every day, my hair feels more like it belongs to me, and I am soooo in love — with my hair and Ted Gibson and his awesome staff!” Yet rumors that Kate is set to make another big change are premature. Recent reports that her new reality show with TLC will involve Kate being thrown into various fish-out-of-water scenarios — or, according to other stories, that the show will document Kate re-entering the dating world — are not true, says a network representative. “This is just the latest speculation,” says the rep. “Last week everyone was announcing [that her show would be] ‘Date Kate.’ We are still in development and looking at a number of ideas. When we have determined what the show will be, you will hear directly from us.”

I think the extensions look horrible. you can clearly tell where her natural hair ends and the fusion extensions are put in. And a new show for her why doesn’t she stop focusing on herself and thinking the world revolves around her and remember she has 8 KIDS she is supposed to be taking care of or are the nannies doing that. You used to see all the pictures of them interacting with their kids and being a family and now, it seems like the kids aren’t even there anymore. She is too focused on herself and getting her own career. Grow up and realize no one cares!!!!

I think Kate is very pretty and I’m a person who prefers long hair but something just seems off about this style. I’m not sure if it just doesn’t fit her or like someone else said maybe its the bangs.

Seriously…..who cares about her dang hair!! Why doesn’t she take that $7000 for her hair and donate it to the Haiti fund….after all…if she has that much money to waste, then at least put it towards something that matters!!!! I would rather see the Haitians get something to eat and drink to defeat death than to look at her hair and care about whether or not it looks good on her!

I love Kate. She is real and cool. Haters are just sour grapes. They are jealous and would rather see her lose everything because they don’t have it. Too bad folks. And by the way, Sheryl, people with kids are allowed to do their hair. It isn’t a requirement that to be a good parent, you must be frumpy!
