Kate Gosselin on Her Hair: "Everybody Wants It"

First there was “The Farrah,” then “The Rachel,” and now, “The Gosselin”? Jon & Kate Plus Eight‘s famous mom is known almost as much for her amped up, asymmetrical hairdo as her brood of eight kids — and recent marital scandals. And when the PEOPLE cover-star sat down with Entertainment Weekly recently to talk about living in a fishbowl, she also dished on her distinctive do. While the reality star doesn’t reveal whether she’s actually named the look, she does respond, “It’s my attitude! Everybody wants it. It’s work.” The secret to getting the style right? “I have very, very thick hair, so it’s not going to work for everybody. I’ve seen people come through the book line with thin hair and [it] just won’t work. My hair stylist gets calls from all across the country.” Tell us: Do you want to try Kate’s look?

It is the ugliest haircut i have ever seen! She looks emo!

That is not flattering. Perhaps a sheek bob would be nice but the back looks like she woke up with a chicken butt on her head!

Poor Kate. And please cut that mess in the front!

Sorry, Kate. This hairstyle was popular in NJ when I was in high school (in the 60s). It is a version of the “Sassoon”

People’s writers are too young to recognize it, but surely YOU do.

It’s not that flattering. Kate had more curly hair in her original wedding video – that was very, very flattering.

Wow Kate! You will do anything to keep yourself in the limelight. (sold out your kids,family, and husband) now you want to say everyone wants your 1980s hairdo? Ah guess I am not anyone then!!!!

A little dated, don’t you think?! Have not seen ONE person, other than media hungry Kate, with this crazy do.

I think that her hair looks like a backwards Mullet… Party in the front, buisness in the back.

I can NOT stand her hair. It is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. Plus she constantly is messing with the front piece because it’s always in her eyes. People probably tell her they like it because they don’t know what the else to say. Sorry…

Seriously? No one has wanted that haircut since 1989. It is like a backwards mullett. Won’t be long until she is staring in an episode of a hair themed Intervention.

Wow you’re in love with yourself… good for you Kate! you hair style? questionable? too many things going on. Looks like you couldn’t decide which style so you went for all 3,4…
not sure what’s up with the spikes in the back? bed hair? hat hair? stock finger in shocket?
you need a hair make over badly! decide on short, long, BUT do something about the back spikes. it makes you look like you’re surprised/shocked all the time.
