Published: | Updated:
He’s been known for his recognizable gel-coated hair since Jersey Shore began airing more than a decade ago.
But Pauly D revealed just how much his appearance has changed during his coronavirus quarantine in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday.
The 39-year-old reality star was barely recognizable thanks to the thick beard he’s been growing in recent months.

Pauly had on a gray graphic hoodie and a black New York Yankees cap in the self-shot video.
‘Yo, beard’s coming in… quite… nicely,’ he said between long pauses and he ran his fingers through his well-groomed beard.
‘Hi I have a beard…..’ he tweeted along with the clip.
His video may also have represented a rare gel-free day for the Jersey Shore star.
