The Jersey Shore Cast Reveals Their Beauty and Style Secrets

12/14/2009 at 11:30 AM ET


With their super-sized personalities, architecturally impressive hairstyles, and their tendency to speak of themselves in the third person, the eight cast members of MTV’s Jersey Shore are rapidly becoming America’s latest guilty pleasure. And for these self-described Guidos and Guidettes, looking good is a complete way of life. “A guy from [the] Jersey Shore is a guy that is looking good, feeling confident, taking care of himself,” DJ Pauly D tells PEOPLE at the Spike TV’s Video Game Awards 2009, proudly pointing out that it takes him nearly a half an hour to sculpt his impenetrable hair. “It takes me twenty-five minutes to get it right. Greatness takes time, and this hair right here is greatness. I have it down to a tee, but this is a process right here.” And it’s not just the guys who can wax philosophical on the topic. “At the end of the day, it’s not about Italians coming together, it’s about a lifestyle,” says Jenni (aka “J-WOWW”) “We all live by a certain lifestyle…. the hair, the make up, the tans…being fit. It’s all preparation for the summer.” And while there are some that have to try harder, others feel it’s actually effortless. “It doesn’t matter what I’m wearing,” says “Snooki”, who proudly admits to donning full makeup when she goes to the gym, “I look good in anything!” For the show’s detractors who insist that it only serves to reinforce negative Italian-American stereotypes, Mike (aka “The Situation”) asks that people show a little patience. “It’s only the first episode,” he tells PEOPLE. “and we’re only seven days in, so you have to give us a chance.” The Staten Island native, whose nickname is the result of a woman pointing out his chiseled abs in a nightclub, adds, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” –Reagan Alexander

Beauty Secrets?!? None of them are even one ounce of hott, and for them to think that is just hilarious! This just shows how MTV keeps getting worse and worse!

Okay, girlfriend in the black lace is scaring me…they’re all fake and creepy looking…and I haven’t seen hair on a man like that since In Living Color and Saved By the Bell

BAHAHAHAHA!..OMG you are so right,especially the guy with the curly hair and 2 earrings!.Oh and I know they werent talkin bout that short chubby chick when they said they all work out..cuz she obviously was too busy tanning and skipped the gym!

Monica on

Please do not give me any beauty tips.

Starr McPhearson on

These chicks need to hit the gym ASAP

Anthony on

What style are they going for? They spend how much time getting ready? And they look like that? I always thought that guys that take that long to get ready were little gay. It is ok to want to look good but it doesn’t take that long to shower, shave, dry hair & get dress. They are not in style they are trendy. I think that most people are laughing at them instead of with them.

Jeff on

I like Snooki. She’s so short she wouldn’t have to get on her knees to give me favors.

Lauren on

These people are poor reprentation of jersey. I live in south jersey and none of us look like this. And that jersey shore isn’t the true jersey shore!

Debbie on

They are NOT fron New Jersey, they are from Long Island and Staten Island… NEW YORK… we hate these people coming to our shore, makes us look bad… Bennies go home

Kristen on

I didn’t know they had style or beauty? Is this a joke? Maybe the viewers should share their style secrets with the cast, they need help.
