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.”

I really like this color on her. It compliments her skin tone.
She looks happy. I think the divorce has been good for her.
I hope that she has a great experience on her new show and that the kids have lots of fun.

I like the long hair! Who cares what she does with her hair, nails, make up etc…It shouldnt matter what other people think…It should only matter what she thinks of herself! I think it looks good and I can see she is just trying to give her life a new start!
