Kate Gosselin Starts the Year with a 20-Hour Salon Makeover

Celebrating her new found freedom, reality TV star and divorcee Kate Gosselin spent 20 hours with celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson for a new hairdo.kate-GOSSELIN-people-new-hairdo

The makeover lasted until the wee hours. Gibson added hundreds of extensions in Gosselin’s hair.

“Bonding extensions to those little hairs really took time. But in all those hours, she didn’t complain once. She was so open to whatever I suggested, and willing to try just about anything,” said the hairstylist who is also a star in the show What Not To Wear. He had previously styled the hairs of Angelina Jolie and Anne Hathaway.

There is an exception to the changes however. The mom of eight kids does not want to let go of her “trademark” thick, jaw-length shock of hair in the front in favor of the bangs. She refused to let it go at first in favor of bangs. She later gave in.

The new look will be featured in the upcoming issue of People magazine this Friday, January 8.
