Jersey Shore blowouts 101


So you’ve probably all read my take on MTV’s Jersey Shore but now you’re getting Jersey Shore, the beauty edition.  I can’t help but kind of love DJ Pauly D (real name Paul Delvecchio) for his profound quotes and, of course, his sterotypical guido blowout.  Going to college in Long Island, I was privy to many a guido blowout but none of them can even compare to the skill and sweet care that goes into Pauly’s immaculate look.  Wanna know his secret?  Thanks to the Daily News, we can all get a little dose of “Guido 101.”  You’re welcome.

The two must-have products?


The must-listen quotes?

  • “My hair didn’t even move an inch and I was in & out of the water. My hair’s windproof, waterproof, soccerproof, motocycleproof. I’m not sure if my hair’s bulletproof, I’m not willin’ to try that.”
  • “You gotta stay fresh-to-death I call it – fresh outfit, fresh haircut, fresh tan, just stay fresh.”
