When Snooki announced she and her hairstylist were putting together a video for her website earlier this week, we had no idea what she had in store for us... until now! It turns out she took the opportunity to debut a brand new hairstyle — and totally shocked us with how drastic a change she made with her look!

On Wednesday, Snooki Instagrammed a pic with her stylist, Bradley Moreland, showing off her super long, bright, and dramatic red locks. And in the picture, we are happy to report Snooks looks thrilled with the change.

We’re not surprised Snooki chose to go so bold with her hair color — we think it suits her perfectly! It’s a super bright red, but if anyone can pull it off, it’s Snooki. It totally reminds us of The Little Mermaid! (No wonder she calls it her “mermaid hair”!)

Plus, this time, instead of waves or curls, she went super-straight. It is almost as sleek as Sammi Sweetheart’s ‘do, though we like the fullness and body that Snooks went for here.
