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

She looks like an Oompa Loompa who has eaten one too many ever-lasting gob stoppers!

Snooki needs to stop tanning so much. I know she wants to adopt a “more mature” style, but the old, leathery bag look isn’t good on anyone.

Im glad she changed her look. She choose a great style for her. Im not a Jersey Shore fan, but I love her new hair. Glad the bump is gone.

Either way, she still looks like Lil Kim. And that’s not necessarily a good thing….
