It may not be as big a story as Brad Pitt finally shaving off his facial hair, but it sounds like Snooki is ready to put her poof into retirement.

Yes, Jersey Shore aficionados, the pint-size reality star is dunzo with her signature hairstyle…

"I haven't worn the poof in awhile," Snooki told me earlier today after taping an appearance on Lopez Tonight with her GTL cohorts. "To be honest with you, I'm getting tired of it."

What? Say It ain't so!

"I've been wearing it since I was 16, and now everyone expects me to wear the poof," she said. "I just don't want to be predictable with my hair and the poof. I want to be different. That's why I've started to do the tease, do the curl and pretty much just a different look."

Would she ever go blond?

"Ew, no!" Snooki squealed. "I am not a blonde. I may act like one, but I'm no blonde!"

When we talked, Snooki & Co. were getting ready to hop on a plane back to the Garden State to finish filming the second season of the Jersey Shore in Seaside Heights.

"We have a lot of bodyguards and cops around us because it's just going to be insane," Snooki said. "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.

"But I think overall we're going to be safe," she added. "We're going to have a good time."

We'll fist-pump to that!
