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.”

Kate is behaving like so many other newly divorced people – she’s trying to recapture the years prior to the marriage. The long hair is not flattering, in my opinion. I think she’s a train wreck no matter what her hair style is. Her constant loud-mouth, over-reacting remarks to anything (even having her hair rinsed) is extremely irritating. Get a grip, Kate!!!! Your 15 minutes of fame are way over!!!

good lord, if she painted her fingernails a different color some of you would attack her. 95% of you are idiots.

The longer hair does make her look younger as it does on most people, that is just a bad picture.


Too bad her and John aren’t concerned about those beautiful kids her with a new look worry about the kids did they do that for free I thought you were crying poor mouth

John really needs to get a life with his kids and forget about the women it is not all about you and Kate take a look at those kids no wonder they need therapy..
