As happy as I am that Kate Gosselin no longer has that horrible spiky mullet-on-drugs haircut, I’m disgusted that her new hairstyle cost $7,000. I’m assuming that Kate didn’t actually pay for the extensions, but it’s still disgusting.
In this day and age of people losing jobs and homes, I just can’t believe there are folks out there willing and able to plop down seven grand on their dang head. But maybe that’s just me.
Ted Gibson, who has worked with celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Anne Hathaway, was the stylist who created Kate’s new look, which took 20 hours to create! He told RadarOnline that the look would generally run $7,000 at his salon.
“My haircuts are $950. The color would have been about $500, and the extensions, which were great length extensions, would probably cost about $5000…We were together for about 20 hours and I would say 15 of those hours were working on Kate trying to convince her to cut her bangs. I felt like she was hiding behind that front piece. I wanted to make sure I took her from being really ordinary to really extraordinary!”
To maintain her new cut, Gosselin will have to take to make a trip to the salon ever three to four months, but it seems she is happy with her new look. Gibson said,
“She was blown away, she had no idea what the length of hair and changing the color and bangs would do for her!”
