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.”

TLC is following NBC right over the cliff with bad business decisions. Kate’s die-hard fans, as loud as they are, do not add up to the necessary base for a successful show. TLC has managed the Jon & Kate crisis as well as Tiger Woods team has. TLC has some great shows and their retention and attention given to Kate is doing some serious damage.

I’m not a fan…but at least she looks like she’s in the 21st century…all Haters

Uh, hope she didn’t pay for those. They look so fake. But then again so is she, so I guess they’re perfect for her. Fake hair? Check. Fake nails? Check. Fake personality? Check.

Seriously…for the money spent on this “do”, it is not good work. The bottom long lengths are stringy and totally scream out “extensions”…polyester? lol. And the top layer (her real hair) is so feathery and short compared to the bottom part that it looks unnatural…all you can picture is her with her short hair. Not enough layers were evenly spaced from top to bottom. Just not natural looking at all.

Her hair is so fake, just like the rest of her!!

Am I the only one who thinks her new hair screams “MULLET”?

I think she looked better with short hair! The longer hair just really doesn’t look right on her.
