So this year, MTV had the “Snooki Ball” drop at midnight. It’s bad – the Jersey Shore cast has officially reached superstar status, plus they have millions of dollars in endorsements and even their very own South Park episode. Jealous yet? You know you’re really famous when you get made fun of on South Park.
The Jersey Shore girls (mainly Snooki) trademarked the “Poof” hairdo, and I’m the first one to hate on it. However, these days J-Woww, Snooki and Sammi are all looking a little classier. With modeling gigs, celebrity stylists and red carpet events, the original guidettes are getting the best of Hollywood style – check out their new looks!
When we first met Jenny “J-Woww” Farley back in season one, she had terrible blonde-and-black streaky highlights and a serious attitude problem. Now, she still has the attitude problem but her hair looks much, much better:
These days, J-Woww has a gorgeous red hair color, one of the hottest shades for the new year. I love her sleek bun in the first pic – this style paired with the feathery earrings is much more glamorous than her previous huge hoops / blonde streaks combo. Her voluminous curls look great, too, especially with the touches of red.
Sammi “Sweetheart” is so naturally beautiful, it’s hard to see her be made a fool of week after week by Ronnie, raging guido and love of her life. We haven’t seen Sammi stray too far from the classic long and straight style:
Here, Sammi wears the usual straight, middle-parted ‘do. Since she tends to stick with this style, Sammi would be a perfect candidate for a keratin treatment to cut her styling time in half. Maybe she’s even had one already – her locks look extra healthy and shiny in these photos. I really like her classy version of the Snooki Poof (far right). It keeps her hair off her face without sticking straight out the top of her head. And in the center, Sammi does some modeling with a beautiful gown and simple bun style – she is gorgeous. I love her hair up.
Oh, Snooki. She’s the one guidette that everyone simply loves to hate on. And why not? She’s barely over twenty years old and world famous for fake tanning, sipping fruity cocktails and basically just being all-around obnoxious. That infamous episode of South Park portrayed her like this:
Flattering, right? A two-foot tall Snooki Monster with a fruity cocktail, coach bag, Marlboro menthol, and of course, huge Poof. I love those South Park guys. And I’ve grown to love Snooki too, because you know what? She was probably a good sport about it. And they got the hair right. Out of all the Poofs on all the guidette heads around the world, Snooki’s is the biggest and baddest (far left):
The Poof is basically the size of her entire head – that’s a lot of weight to carry. I’m loving her loose waves from the 2010 Grammy’s. This look takes the attention away from the top of her head and brings it towards her pretty features. She looks good with straight-across bangs, too, but the frosty lipstick has to go.
Alternate Guidettes: Angelina & Deena
These two aren’t original guidettes – Angelina left the cast mid-season and Deena joined recently – but they are certainly worth mentioning in terms of hairstyles. Annoying as she is (she calls herself the “Kim Kardashian of Staten Island”… can I puke now?) Angelina has been modeling lately and I must say she looks great. She walked at Fashion Week while the rest of the cast went to the VMAs. I love her messy up-do from the show:
Deena is Snooki’s BFF who joined the cast for season 3. I haven’t seen much of her yet, except for one catfight where she was upset with Sammi for looking at her the wrong way, or something… and she also had a really cute flower accessory like she’s wearing here:
Deena’s hair is similar to Sammi’s – long, straight and brown. It’s beautiful, and I love her accessories, but I’d love to see a more daring color on Deena to match her personality. Why not? Jersey girls are wild, and their style should go with it!
