Earlier this year John revealed that the decision to shave his head was made "on a whim" and that he's keeping his new bald look as it "feels great."

He told People.com: “Listen, my new look came on a whim. It was a New Year’s Eve idea. Because everyone liked it so much, I decided to keep it for a while. So, we’ll see.”
