The slow metamorphosis of Snooki from boardwalk mess to soccer mom continued this week, when reality posted a photo of her extreme new haircut on Instagram.
Is this new look a response to those pesky Jionni LaValle cheating rumors? A desire to look more dignified? The realization that her long locks were probably still coated in tequila and DNA from her Jersey Shore days?
Who's to say? All we know for certain is that we like it...and that it's hard to believe this is the same Snooki who got arrested for being so drunk she couldn't locate the ocean.
There were many who had their doubts when that Snooki would be able to clean up her act when she announced her first pregnancy back in 2012.
Since then, she's made a full time job out of proving the haters wrong.
Snooki married Jionni LaValle in November in a ceremony that was shockingly light on fist-bumping and body shots.
Even more surprising was that Snooks gave birth to her second child just two months prior to the ceremony yet was somehow in the best shape of her life when the time came to walk down the aisle.
So yeah, this new haircut isn't as astonishing as Snooki's post-baby body, but it's yet another indication that the former hot mess is all grown up.
