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.”

This is not a good look for her at all. The style, as a whole, ages her by at least ten years!

I kind of think she looks like a drag queen with a bad wig… Dont get me wrong, I wasn’t a fan of the short cut either, except when they made it wavy and more natural looking on The View… Good luck with the extensions Kate, but, like I said, you kinda looka-likea-man…

You know the country is morally bankrupt when someone’s fake hair can make headlines. Wake me in 15 years when the sextuplets write their version of Mommy Dearest.

I think her new add ons look like a bad wig. She is NOT attractive in long hair. That is something for kids. She is way past that. Go home and be with your kids, they need you.

Looks terrilbe, like they just attached all this fake stuff in the back, but the top part is till short, and i agree she looks much older.

Im not a Fan at all, but, I think she looks 100% better with the longer hair. And why not, she is the one acting like a parent. She deserves to do something for her self.

Not a Fan on

How can she afford extensions? She said without the show she was “just getting by” with monthly expenses…Just wondering
