Stop what you’re doing: Pauly D has apparently shared pictures of his new hair on Instagram.
The Jersey Shore veteran was known around the globe for the blown-out hairstyle he debuted on MTV’s popular reality show. Now that the program is over and he’s getting a little older, Paul DelVecchio has decided to update his look with a little Hollywood inspiration.
Pauly D posted pictures of his new hair on Instagram earlier this week. The slick look was obviously inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio’s character from director Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. The former reality show star even pointed out this fact with a helpful caption.
“The Great DJ Gatsby,” he wrote for those who didn’t get the reference. You can find the pic below.
Say what you will about the guy’s new hairstyle, but Pauly D has made a name for himself following the success of Jersey Shore. Although the show may have been canceled, DelVecchio is still booking DJ gigs all across the country. However, it remains to be seen if all of his celebrity powers were rooted in his famous haircut.
According to Us Weekly, Pauly D’s previous haircut required quite a bit of maintenance. The DJ would reportedly spent around 25 minutes every day making sure his hair was the very definition of perfection. If he was making an public appearance, DelVecchio would reportedly apply copious amounts of hairspray and sparkles.
“A lot of people try to do the same hair style, but they can’t really do it right. Mine definitely stands out,” he explained to the New York Daily News back in 2009.
Since celebrities can’t do anything without people sharing their opinions on the subject, a number of folks recently took to Twitter to discuss Pauly D’s new hair. A few of their reactions are embedded below.
