Days after Brad Pitt shaved off his overgrown beard, Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has made a hair style change of her own — the pint-sized party girl has said goodbye to her pouf.

“I haven’t worn the pouf in a while,” Snooki tells E! Online of her signature height-boosting style. “To be honest with you, I’m getting tired of it.”

Why? “I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, and now everyone expects me to wear the pouf,” she said. “I just don’t want to be predictable with my hair and the pouf.

Get ready to see Snooki sport a whole new set of styles. “I want to be different,” she says. “That’s why I’ve started to do the tease, do the curl and pretty much just a different look.”

But she draws the line at lightening her locks. “I am not a blonde. I may act like one, but I’m no blonde!”

Snooki is taking her flat-topped hair back to Seaside Heights where she and the cast are finishing filming the second season of Jersey Shore.

“We have a lot of bodyguards and cops around us because it’s just going to be insane,” she says. “I don’t even know how it’s all going to work. I’m scared if a couple of guys come and try to fight us. God forbid I get hit again. That’s the last straw and I’m going home. It’s not worth it.”
