has introduced greater America to terms like GTL and smush, but more importantly we wouldn’t have ever gotten to know our favorite meatball, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
! She first stumbled onto the small screen back in late 2009 and has quickly become a household name. Today, Nov. 23, this member of Team Meatballs turns 24. Happy birthday, Snooki!
A combination of her over-the-top personality and eccentric style is what keeps fans of the 4’9″ Chilean cutie coming back for more. More impressive than her obsession with leopard is her wild hair! From the infamous poof to her long red locks, Snooks always keeps us guessing.
In honor of Snooki’s big day, Celebuzz has taken a trip down memory lane and gathered up all of her different ‘dos.
There’s more to this reality star, then just a pouf! The self-proclaimed Princess of Poughkeepsie has turned her onscreen persona into a bonafide brand. After trademarking her name, she’s come out with her own line of slippers (Snooki Slippers
) and even has her own perfume.
Even if Jersey Shore
might be on it’s last leg, Ms. Polizzi isn’t going anywhere. She signed on to star in her own show with castmate and real-life BFF JWoww
. The show will follow the two as they move in together and mayhem ensues.
