Ashley Rickards Debuts Wild New ‘Do At The 2012 VMAs [Video]

Ashley Rickards of ‘Awkward.’ poses at the 2012 VMAs with fellow blonde Demi Lovato.

Upon her head-turning arrival at the 2012 VMAs, Ashley Rickards didn’t appear to be feeling the slightest bit “Awkward.” The naturally brunette MTV star surprised “VMA 2012: Red Carpet Report” host Holland Roden (and everyone else in near distance) with a striking new blonde ‘do, which was styled straight out of a Hollywood starlet playbook. And girl sure wore her coif with confidence! “I’m just having fun,” she told Roden. “Blondes have more fun, I heard.” Judging by her bubbly demeanor, it seems as if her little experiment is working…

We love a girl who dares to switch up her look, especially when it’s drastic. Not since Lady Gaga‘s meat dress had we dropped our jaws so low–who knew Ash had it in her?
