Sherri Shepherd thought Kate Gosselin's wavy new 'do -- which she sported on The View for one day -- was "great."

"Our hairstylist did it for her and she was so open to a change," Shepherd, 42, said at Us' 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers party Wednesday night.

"It's like, 'You got rid of the weight of your husband, and now you're open to a change," Shepherd continued. "You go girl!"

The talk show's hair stylist Lavette Slater told Us she asked Gosselin, 34, if she could "expand on her already famous locks and try something new, fun and whimsical," before her Tuesday View appearance.

"Kate was excited and gave me carte blanche to experiment and create a new look," Slater said.

But the style didn't stick. By Wednesday, Gosselin was back to her spiky reverse mullet.
