Lori Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli has, no doubt, consulted with an expert to help him prepare to surrender by Thursday for his five-month stint in federal prison.
But perhaps this expert told the newly convicted white-collar felon that he could blend in better with the other inmates by shaving his head and trying to look like some tough-guy character in the TV prison series “Oz,” according to TMZ, which published photos of Giannulli’s new look.

Of course, as a fashion designer living a Hollywood lifestyle, Giannulli may have been looking to Hollywood for depictions of prison life to come up with his new look.
In any case, Giannulli, convicted with Loughlin in the college admissions scandal, was photographed by paparazzi sporting his new look, which has involved shaving off his full head of glossy hair. The former Bel Air Country Club member also is showing off a bushy salt-and-pepper beard, though he’s had the beard for more than a year, meaning he was way ahead of the trend for men growing beards while sheltering in place for the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s not known which prison Giannulli will surrender to. Meanwhile, Loughlin is enduring pretty difficult circumstances in the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, according to reports from other inmates.
Attorneys and prisoner advocates say the East Bay women’s prison has been dealing with an outbreak of COVID-19. Nearly 900 women are incarcerated in the Dublin prison, which has a low-security main facility and a minimum-security satellite camp.

When Loughlin, 57, surrendered Oct. 30 for her two-month sentence, she had to immediately go into quarantine. As of last week, the disgraced TV star was housed in a storage building that’s been converted into a makeshift isolation unit, with temporary showers and toilets, but with no heat or hot water, and inmates forced to sleep on mats on a cold concrete floor, said Holli Coulman, a prison consultant who has several clients in the Dublin prison.
“The human rights violations are off the charts for taking inmates from the current environment that’s bad and putting them into these makeshift areas, which are worse,” said Coulman, who uses her experience as a former federal inmate to help white-collar defendants prepare for the culture and protocols of prison life.
Giannulli and Loughlin were among two dozen wealthy parents convicted in the college admissions scandal. They pleaded guilty in May to paying $500,000 to have their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, fraudulently admitted to the University of Southern California on the pretense of being crew team recruits. Giannulli was sentenced to five months, while Loughlin received a two-month sentence.
