Actor Chris Pine is known for his luxurious hair. It's the kind of hair that gets him cast as Prince Charming in blockbuster films and leaves women swooning in his wake, so we were surprised when the star revealed a dramatic haircut yesterday.

Pine stepped out at CinemaCon to promote his new film "Wonder Woman" and his look seemed to be missing something — namely all of his beautiful hair! The 36-year-old star debuted his closely shaved 'do and we're still kind of in disbelief.

Pine told E! News that he was home sick with the flu when the idea came to him. After binge-watching "Homeland," he decided to give himself the same cut as one of the series' stars, Rupert Friend.

The close crop isn't quite bald — but it's pretty close!

It might be a while until we get to see Pine's flowing locks again — so it's only appropriate to take a moment and reflect on what we've lost.

In January, Pine's coif was at its prime. It was tamed into a dapper style and the salt and pepper beard only added to the debonair effect.

One year earlier, his strands were pure perfection. The star stepped out at a premiere sporting a slightly tousled 'do.

Back in 2014, Pine's artfully disheveled style was the height of cool and of course he finished the look off with a popped collar, in case you didn't already get the memo.

We even loved Pine's hair when it was bleached and beachy! In 2012, Pine was partial to the lighter hue and we were still into it.

Surely we'll learn to love Pine's shaved head in time — but for now, R.I.P. you gorgeous head of hair!
