Alexander Skarsgard is almost unrecognizable as he debuts half-bald head

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:

And here's him post-barber -- with a Prince William side-by-side for comparison.

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?
