Ron Deily: Hair Apparent Video


Ron Deily talks hair care at the infamous Jersey Shore.

I think we can all agree that my friend Ron Deily,Zoo York rider and Vans flow rider, has a very smooth style. Very, very smooth. It begs the question, where does good style come from? Is it nature or nuture? Can style develop? Or are you born with it? I think the answer is: style, like strength, comes from your hair. If you think about any skater with good style, they have or had hair (and a face, but that's an entirely different discussion). When I met Ron Deily the first thing I said to him when I saw his crazy Sideshow Bob hair was, "Don't ever cut your hair.Tthat's all you have going for you." And I was right. And so he hasn't. I caught up with Ron on the trash-filled Jersey Shore to discuss the heady topic of his hair. In The process I accidently invented The Dad Cam.
