Is Snooki Retiring Her Poof?: Is “Jersey Shore’s” Snooki done with her signature ‘do? “I haven’t worn the poof in awhile,” Snooki told E! Online’s Marc Malkin on Monday. “To be honest with you, I’m getting tired of it. I’ve been wearing it since I was 16, and now everyone expects me to wear the poof.
