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?
