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.”

Personally, who really cares what she is doing with her hair!! She use to be down to earth and someone people could relate to. A big reason why that show was so succesful now she blows $7,000 on extensions and seems to be more interested in spray tans and getting her nails done. Money and fame ruined that family and she is a perfect example of someone who forgot what was truely important in life. I don’t know why her or John keep getting face time I am so tired about hearing about them both.

Why this woman keeps getting attention is because her PR people are on overdrive getting a HUGE amount of money to keep her in the news! It just goes to show you what a lot of photoshop touch-ups magazines like People(and all of the rest of them) do to make people look nicer, when in real life(like the photo above), Kate seems to have lots of wrinkles and a double chin. The hair now definately looks like a mullet.

oh my god WHO CARES!
the woman is going through a divorce.
it’s a depressing thing to go through and
if the woman decides to get extensions then
she can get extensions!
change is good.

I’m sorry, but this does make Kate look a bit older.
