Kate Gosselin has become quite the hair chameleon.

The reality TV mom was spotted last night with her "Dancing with the Stars" partner, Tony Dovolani, at Nobu restaurant in New York City with a new short haircut.

The sleeker bob comes just a few months later after she rang in the New Year with an entirely new hairstyle -- adding hair extensions and bangs and leaving behind her iconic "Jon and Kate Plus Eight" reverse mullet.

Celebrity hair stylist Ted Gibson, who perfected Gosselin's new 'do with colorist Jason Backe, believes the look is both sophisticated and chic.

"This is the best direction for her at the moment," said Gibson. "She starts 'Dancing with the Stars' in a few weeks so this is her 'getting ready to go' look for the show."

To achieve a lustrous shine, Gibson used his Build It Blow Drying Agent and Hairsheet Styling products, which he believes are perfect for blondes on-the-go. He finished the look with Beautiful Hold Hairspray.

Gibson told RadarOnline that the short haircut is simply a transition style before Gosselin goes back to the extensions and brightens up her strands with a three-blend custom hair color.

"We're actually doing three different shades of blonde, a caramel, a beige blond and a little bit of a lighter blonde," he told RadarOnline. "The extensions will last through the whole time she's on the show."

What do you think about Gosselin's new (but temporary) haircut? Does she look better with hair extensions?
