Pauly D, 39, doesn’t need to hop on the TikTok trend of shaving his head to look like a completely new person. All the Jersey Shore star has to do is ditch the gel in his hair routine — which he proved in a TikTok video that he also shared to Instagram on May 14! While Bazzi’s song “Myself” played, Pauly started the video by showing his signature gelled ‘do. After hitting the camera a few times, he pulled back to reveal a completely transformed Pauly. Just look at how long his hair really is below!
“NO GEL! Who Dis??!! Follow My #TikTok 🙏🏽🙌🏽🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥,” Pauly captioned the TikTok, which he filmed inside the gym (peep those ripped biceps). Fans had to do a double-take. “Damn Pauly For a second I thought it was wolverine! [laughing emoji],” one follower commented, and others were big fans of Pauly’s natural hair with comments like, “I like it better without the gel.”
Meanwhile, a different type of hairdo caught fans’ attention: Pauly’s quarantine beard, that is! The usually clean-shaven MTV star is not one to rock heavy facial hear, and fans stanned this transformation as well. “Pauly keep the beard!!,” a fan pleaded in the comments section, and another wrote, “That facial hair suits you very well.”
However, Pauly’s hair gel is still in tact as Season 3 of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation continues to play out on MTV. Instead of his hair, though, it was his bedroom moment with longtime co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley that made headlines after the episode aired on May 7! The castmates hooked up during Season 1 of the OG Jersey Shore, and everyone was rooting for the friends to jump each other’s bones — Vinny Guadagnino said it would be “full circle.” Alas, Pauly prioritized his friendship with JWoww first, but they did get a little handsy in bed. It’s now hard to decide which is more shocking: Pauly and JWoww almost hooking up, or Pauly with gel-free hair.
