Go bald or go home!

Prince William had no choice but to embrace the style, but Alexander Skarsgard did so of his own accord this week as he debuted a half-shaved head in New York on Thursday. Although the photos are a shock, the actor looked confident as ever as he attended a Louis Vuitton event in the city.

Here's Skarsgard just a few days before he went in for the dramatic haircut:

The actor, 41, sheared off his locks for his upcoming film The Hummingbird Project, which co-stars Cara Delevingne.

Really, with eyes like that, who needs hair?
