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 Usmagazine.com. "Kate was excited and gave me carte blanche to experiment and create a new look."

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