Hair Stylist: Kate Gosselin "Excited" With New 'Do


Kate Gosselin wasn't afraid to mix up her trademark look, says hair stylist Lavette Slater, who is responsible for the reality star's new wavy look.

"Kate is a beautiful woman and I wanted to expand on her already famous locks and try something new, fun and whimsical," Slater tells "Kate was excited and gave me carte blanche to experiment and create a new look."

Adds Slater (who also styles Sherri Shepherd's hair), "As a mother of 8 children, you don't always have time to style your hair  and this was the perfect opportunity to show a different look for Kate."

Kate, 34, agrees. During Tuesday's "Hot Topics" panel - where she first debuted the look - she gushed, "Isn't it cute?"
