John Travolta has thanked his fans for the overwhelming response to his new makeover.

The 64-year-old acting legend had posted a photo of himself alongside daughter Ella Bleu, 18, celebrating New Year's Eve.

And he was bald.

Yep, after years of dodging rumours he'd been wearing an elaborate toupee/had hair replacement therapy, John embraced the hair-free look.

And it suits him!

John had been thinking of getting the big shave since 2010, when he went bald for his role in From Paris With Love.

He told Absolute Now at the time:

"It was quite a radical look for me and I was a little concerned about what people might think. Not only did [wife Kelly Preston] like it but they did an online survey and 99 per cent of people preferred it to my usual look.

"I might just go bald and bearded full-time from now on."

Fast-forward to 2019, and he's living his best bald life.

Posting a cute Insta video of himself dirt biking with son Benjamin, eight, John celebrated a major Instagram milestone, while thanking fans for their compliments on his 'do:

"We just got the great news that it's hit over a million followers on Instagram and we love you, we thank you.

"And also - thanks for liking the new hairdo. Yeah!"
