Are you a fan of Ashley’s dramatic new ‘do? Check out before-and-after pics, then vote!

Forget Team Matty and Team Jake; Ashley Rickards proved she’s Team Blonde when she debuted new, lighter locks at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. “It’s time for the #VMA2012… ;)” the Awkward star tweeted Sept. 6, along with a photo of herself in a limo on the way to the show.

What say you, judges of hair? Will Ashley have more fun as a blonde, or would she be better off sticking to her roots?

Vote now!

I think with the blonde hair and weight loss she looks like Jamie Pressly… When I saw her on the after show I was like what is she doing here? It took me a minute to realize it was Ashley. Either way she looks good, but it really is a drastic change.

I think that she may have some sort of autoimmune disease. This is why she got what is referred to as “moon face” in season 2 and also that spare tire around her waist. This is what being on prednisone (steroids) does to you, and many people with painful autoimmune diseases have no choice but to take them off and on for long periods of time for the rest of their lives. Of course, my speculation about her having an autoimmune disease is just that, but I’d bet my money on the fact that it is steroids that caused that moon face. I know because I see it first hand in my own life. And that may also explain why she was acting very strange tonight. Maybe she is on some other sort of medications if she has an illness. IDK. But I also did not recognize her in the aftershow. I definitely like her much better as a brunette. And it certainly was a very strange vibe on that aftershow, that’s for sure. Whatever the case may be, it’s a cute show, and I hope that all is well with Ashley Rickards.

Sooner or later everyone falls into the Hollywood mode. Don’t women/girls know that natural is beauty?

I’m a big fan of Ashley & love the show but I didn’t recognize her either when I first saw her on the After Show. She looks very different with the blonde hair, tan & weight loss. I don’t really think she’s had work done on her face. I think it’s the weight loss that’s changed her look. She’s still a pretty girl with the blonde hair & all but I prefer her dark hair & fair skin…her natural beauty! I agree that she seemed a little bit off kilter during the show but maybe that’s just her personality? I also hope that she isn’t feeling like she has to go the sex kitten route. She’s a wonderful actress & a lovely girl & I really hope she’ll realize she doesn’t have to change herself. Her fans love her as she is! I’m wishing her nothing but the best.

I so agree. I felt uncomfortable…No! Awkward the whole show! Totally seemed stuck up and what was up with the winking and sultry looks toward Beau? I heart her and the show and hated seeing her like that.

She looks like Jamie Pressly now. The tan and weight loss has really aged her. Watching the Awkward after show and she seems drunk or something.

You nailed it about the face work and unhealthy weight appearance . Its sad and unfortunate :( But that’s what society has came to.. well I guess I should say the fashion and television industry.. I hate that the beautiful Marilyn Monroe was probably two times her weight, and men drolled over her.. but now, to be consider attractive or beautiful, this is what you do?

I mean… on the after show she looked like she was on drugs and starving herself. Plus, it looks like she had some work done on her face. I could sense the tension among the cast against her. Poor thing. Only 20 and heading down a wrong path.

i hate the new locks. Completely UGLY! I hate it, and the tan, nope. I’m watching the after show and yeah.. she is pretty with the darker hair all the way. Ashley, go back to your natural hair color.

I think Ashley looks amazing! Looks like shes growing up and trying to play the sex kitten card. Good luck sister. I wonder if she’s trying to bid for the 50 shades of gray part? Ha!
