Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may be known for her hair pouf, but when she stepped out on the white carpet at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, she debuted brand new bangs, saying it’s time for her to kiss the signature look goodbye. “It’s definitely a new look, but I think it’s a good look that suits me,” Polizzi told PEOPLE. “I want to look more mature. The pouf—I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, so why not switch it up?” Even though Snooki’s new hair looks great, the Jersey Shore reality starlet, 23, says the adjustment is taking a moment. “Now I have bangs,” she says. “I haven’t had bangs since I was seven, so this is weird. To be honest with you, I went out right after I got this hair done, and no one recognized me.” –Dahvi Shira

I love snookie and her new bangs!! But she did go alittle (alot) overboard on her spray tan especially on her face!! but she looked really good @ the VMA’s and as for the guys they all looked really hot too!

OMG I thought she was at least 35. I have never watched the show. She really should lose the weight and the orange glow!

Most of the Jersey Shore viewers are from ages 10 -15. And what they’re learning from this show is that you don’t need to be talented to be a celebrity. Just get a killer tan, act like a scum and there you go, you’re set for life.

She should have kept the poof. I just realized the other night how not attractive she really is!

Her hair looks cute sans “pouf”, but she looks like an old, dried up piece of leather. She 23, but looks 43 in this picture…

Tired of hearing about snooki; why is it that new jersey women tan soooo much! It is bad for your skin and it makes them look so OLD and FAKE! Just be yourself .STOP TANNING!!! It’s not CUTE!!!!As for that Dumb poofy hairstyle they do not realize it makes you look so dated. I see a lot of Jersey women with that old ass look. Try something new and dont be a follower be a leader!!
