Deena Nicole made a splash at the 2012 MTV VMAs, showing off her newly svelte figure in a hot, form-fitting dress. But while the dropped pounds might be the most obvious change, we'd like to draw attention to another element of Deena's VMA style: her hair.

Deena opted to trade in her normally straight, highlighted hair for gentle, wavy curls that really show off the dark red color she's currently sporting.

We think this hairdo really suits her — it adds a soft elegance to her look. Do you agree, or do you prefer her normal 'do better?
