Snooki Gets Rid of Her Hair Pouf: 'I Want to Look More Mature'

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

Better! Now she needs to go a little lighter on the makeup and tanning, and a little heavier on the clothing coverage!!

She is one of the ugliest, and most ignorant people I’ve ever seen. Who ever cast her should be banned to eastern Siberia for life.

She looks way better without that pouf thing and better with the bangs. She looks more sophisticated. I don’t watch the show but hear about it from friends and co-workers who watch it religiously. I tried watching it for 10 minutes and felt my brain was going to explode and felt my intelligence was decreasing by the minute if I kept watching the show. Although it was funny, it still had to be shut off. I digress, so she looks better this way than before, end of story of my opinion!

Ahhh! I love Snickers! Who doesn’t like her? What’s not to like?? She’s cool; funny; down to earth and she IS a TRUE friend!!! I’m glad she got rid of the bump-it in back though …. I thought that was a littl retro (80/90’s). Maybe now someone get JWoWW to cover up her sweater kittens … yes Jenni, we all know you have implants ….. now can ya cover ’em up??? Sheesh!

I love the new hair. If only she would get rid of the tan and stop overtanning. If only she knew only people from Jersey think the orange look is remotely cute. The dark liner and flesh toned lipstick don’t mesh well. She’s taking it a step in the right direction.
