Kate Gosselin's Hair Switch-Up: Short Today, But Long Tomorrow?

Lately, Kate Gosselin‘s hair has experienced as many ups and downs as the reality show star herself. This week, the 34-year-old mother of eight stepped out with a cropped bob — a stark contrast to the shoulder-length extensions she’d been sporting courtesy of her 20-hour makeover from celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson back in early January. But while rehearsing for her upcoming spin as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars, Gosselin stopped in for a visit to stylist Gibson for a new cropped do. But, she’ll go long again soon enough with another set of extensions for DWTS — nothing looks better during a sexy samba than long, flowing locks. Find out about Kate’s views on winning DWTS and more about her new life in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now. Tell us: Do you prefer Kate with a short bob or her longer extentions?Blane Bachelor

I think Kate’s new hair looks amazing! Also…so sick of the people hating on her for daring to have a life AND be a mother at the same time! It is possible and it is unfair for people to criticize her for doing something for herself.

Everyone who says Kate should get a real job and go home are hypocrites! I bet you don’t tell your favorite quarterbacks or point guards to leave their team and go home to be a dad!! Or what about our military moms who leave their kids to go away? It is a career they chose and being on TV is a career Kate chose. It’s all for income for the family. Football, basketball players are shamed for being away months at a time. Let this woman do what she needs to do to make as much money for her family as she can. It will end eventually and then she will have to find a day to day job. So I say more power to her and get it while you can!

I’m no fan, but this is the best she has looked yet! Fake hair looks fake! She should keep this style.

Although I am not crazy about Kate as a person,
she is the mother of 8, for which I give her a
world of credit. I think she is a very attractive
woman. She looks much better in short hair than
in long hair.

That’s my haircut! She stole my style. LOL.

Seriously? Do we have to keep seeing her? Does she have to have an article in the press every time she farts or changes her hair or goes to dinner or steps out of a car or opens her mouth? Enough already, JUST GO AWAY AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS. Jeesh.

You people DO know you’re getting all inflamed over someone who is NOT in your life and does NOT affect your life in anyway, right? You do know that your opinion is based on what you’ve read in GOSSIP magazines, right? YOU do know that your opinion of her on TV was based on what bits TLC decided to show you, right? Sure hope so, because otherwise your lives are pretty sorry. Now. Start throwing poo at me–you know you want to.

i am glad the mullet is gone, but i wish she too would be gone!

Kate does not have any qualifications for constantly being in the news. If she was a quarterback, she would have a talent. If she was an actor, she would have a talent. She has no talent other than not knowing when her fame is up (which by the way it is). Who gives a **** what her hair looks like and why are these people doing it for free ??? We have more important causes and problems in the world than what Kate’s hair looks like.

Wow…I am amazed at the amount of hateful comments. Why is she criticized any more than other working moms? She has to work with what she has been handed now (even if she did help to create her own monster. I mean really, don’t we all in some way or another?)– and if that means taking offers that keep her in the spotlight, then that is simply what she has to do. I’m not a huge Kate fan, but I certainly don’t enjoy seeing her defamed either.
