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.”

GAG!!!!!! This long stringy hair is a mess. It is sooooooo fake – it looks like someting from the corner drug store. Get over yourself, Kate. Your self-centered fame game is on barrowed time! Go take care of your 8 children.

hair all done … nails all done… wonder how many mother’s of 8 kids look like her? must be nice to have all that extra time on her hands!

I don’t love them, but I like better than her short hair. I think it’s better she changed everything up rather than staying with the same hair forever. I love Kate so whatever she does is ok by me.

I think her hair looks awesome long and straight on the cover of People magazine, but I don’t like it curly that much. All you guys act like she’s the only one wearing them. 50% of actresses are wearing them right now. I think you all are jealous because you can’t afford them. Haha

Um, Beth, they ARE side-swept. And, no, it isn’t only “older women” who have bangs. It’s women who are independent enough to not follow the masses and adopt the cookie cutter, flat, long bang, side part hairstyle every teenybopper in the country is sporting. BORING!

I think long hair suits her better, but the extensions look way too drastic when combined with the short length her natural hair is right now. It would be better if she wore a long wig IMO until her hair grows a bit longer. It just looks too mullet like and fake right now. I’m glad she wants long hair again, the short spiky do was getting old, but please please please, those layers with the extensions look SO unnatural! Wig or shorter extensions until that hair grows out!

Maybe it’s the picture but I too think it ages her. Maybe it needs to be shoulder length and not as long.

Who paid for the new locks? She whines about having no money in the bank to pay bills, or buy food for her kids….stopping spending Kate!

My daughter just posted, she’s 9. We’re not illiterate. We’re definitely on “Team Kate” with TARA! She is a lovely woman, probably prefer her with short hair. I think it will take a while to get used to the longer style. She may have been better off waiting for her own hair to grow and donated the $7,000 to a good cause :) GO KATE!
