John Travolta has been in denial for some years about the status of his hair, but now it seems he’s finally embraced his baldness.

In a picture posted to his Instagram page yesterday, he appeared with his daughter Ella, and wished fans a Happy New Year.


The snap finds him clean shaven up top, and, frankly, it’s gone down like a house on fire.

“Digging the bald look on you!!!” said one fan.

“John, hair is so overrated, love the picture. Very Handsome,” added another.

“Bald is sooo much better!”

“You sir are one handsome man. The icon of our generation! Bald or wigged do whatever makes you happy.”

Indeed, he’s strangely vacillated over the years, appearing with more hair, then less hair, then more hair again, confounding both fans and science.

One of his most famous scenes from Saturday Night Fever even includes a tense exchange between a young Travolta and his father over his hair at the dinner table.

And who could forget his iconic greased quiff from Grease.
