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.”

OMG!!!! makes her look way older and gives her a “hard” look.

Aren’t her fifteen minutes up yet?

her “new locks” look a bad photo-shop.

Hair extensions are the female equivalent of a sock-in-the-jock. Maybe this Ted Gibson guy can become a celebrity jock-stuffer, too.

Not wowed by the new locked. But my q. is Don’t you have something better to do than sit in a chair for 20 hrs. I would think with 8 kids something pertaining to laundry, making beds, vacuuming just the daily everyday life things need to be done. So while your in the chair who does all this? And to think just a few weeks ago you were in the fetal position crying about how were you going to pay your bills. I guess the $ Jon returned came in handy.

She has a mullett! And why is HE still getting attention on People for what???

GayLynn on

Don’t like it at all. Looks like a mess. A bit too blond also. Makes her look washed out.

Diane on

NO NO NO Kate please cut it. Long hair is not good on you. It makes you look older.

I think what Kate is doing with her new look is great. She deserves it! She just went through a huge divorce, has 8 kids, and is only in her 30’s. I say, let her live the way she wants while she still can! She should do what she has to to keep those kids happy and healthy.

LOOKS HORRIBLE! (not that her old style was any better). Makes her look a lot OLDER.

Good for Kate – she needed a change. All women do when they go through a trauma like she did with that loser of a husband. Give her a break.
