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

Love snooks. She looks really cute with that hair. She actually is a pretty girl sans all that makeup

[…] Snooki ditched her trademark pouf at last night's VMAs because she wanted to look "more mature." [] […]

She’s such a mess. The next reality show she’ll be on is Celeb Rehab. Think about what is she famous for…..She’s a public drunk, over tanned, short & round & can’t even speak in full sentence.
It’s like watching a car accident…

ITA! The hair is awesome but the tan looks silly. Snooki is a pretty girl – she doesn’t need the tan!

i think this is the worst picture of snooki ever. she looks way to orange. she looks like an oompa lompa

I’m struggling not to say something mean…but… I think she got rid of it because it looked ridiculous. I still think the show is the lowest common denominator, but hey, someone’s watchng it.

I think Snooki is adorable.
