Snooki Gets a Chop, Since She's a New Mom and All

Did you ever have one of those days where you inexplicably find yourself nostalgic for the heyday of Jersey Shore? For The Situations's GTL antics? For Ronnie and Sammi's epic fights? For Pauly D's crunchy coif? For Snooki's bouffant, which likely held more secrets than Ariana Grande's half-up, half-down ponytail? Well, Snooki chopped off her hair. I'll give you a moment to regain your composure, but the mom of two, who ditched her height-at-the-crown 'do in favor of long, red-tinted waves a while back, has streamlined her style in favor of a bouncy lob. She looks better than ever, without resorting to a soccer mom shag. Whew!

I can understand that Snooki, who is now known as Nicole LaValle, needs to keep things a bit more simple with two babies to care for and all. She doesn't exactly have time to tease and shellac her pouf with hairspray, but she hasn't gone soft or snoozy with her style. She's actually super cute and has grown up without getting boring. Her guidette days are in the rearview and that infamous bump on her crown has been replaced by swingy, shoulder-skimming waves.

Are you ready to see her transformation? Whether or not you binge watch Jersey Shore or you yearn for the days when The Sitch reigned supreme, you cannot deny that Snooki, or Mrs. LaValle, is looking mighty fine.

Here she is, pre cut and color, with long, red waves. Dayum, that's a lot of hair.

Don't you love how she documented the process with a pouty selfie? Some things will never, ever change.

Ta da! She's back to dark and short and the color and length are so, so perfect for her! They flatter her face shape and skin tone, respectively. It's a fun cut.

Not only is her new 'do low maintenance, it's crazy chic. And those eyebrows are on fleek.
