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

[…] Snooki debuted a sleeker hairstyle at the MTV VMA’s Sunday night that, dare I say, actually look pretty decent (pit about the rest of the ensemble).  Apparently the orange one has outgrown the pouf, having worn it since she was sixteen.  “I want to look more mature” Snooki told People. […]
