“Hairspray” star NIKKI BLONKSY went from Hollywood red carpets to blow drying hair at a Long Island beauty parlor AND she’s happy to do it.

"It's true Im workin@ Superstar Salon as a makeup artist & more Im proud 2 b workin & helpin pay bills BUT ill NEVER loose sight of my dreams," tweeted Nikki, just hours after  revealed that she's working at a Great Neck, New York salon.

"Just cause Im part time workin doesnt mean Im gonna give up on my dreams n dont give up on urs I might book something big soon keep positive," she pledged.

The singer and actress who starred with John Travolta in the hit 2007 musical adaption of the Broadway hit adapted from a film (which launched the career of Ricki Lake) now has a cosmetology license and is now happy to do anything at the Superstar Salon to pay her bills.

Since the story broke, 23-year-old Nikki has gotten an out-pouring of support from fans on Twitter over her hard work and dedication to making a living.

This is not the first crappy day job Blonsky has worked. She was working at a shoe store earlier this year.

Maybe director JOHN WATERS, can re-re-discover her.
