Kate Gosselin's Hair
Vidal Sassoon’s 1963 Geometric Bob
The heavy, crisply defined slash of Kate’s bangs can be traced to the revolutionary “easy-maintenance” cut that legendary British follicle-sculptor Sassoon gave Hong Kong actress Nancy Kwan, who played chess distractedly while he wielded his razor. (Seen here, right: a similar Sassoon style.) This style really kick-started the era of modern, mom-friendly hair where a skillful cut, not curlers or sprays, determines the shape. Unlike Kate’s hair, however, Sassoon’s bob has a back.
