Jamie Laing has shaved off his signature blonde hair and we can’t deal

It's the end of an era for the Chelsea party boy!  

Jamie Laing, heir to the McVities throne and star of E4’s Made in Chelsea, is known for his trademark messy blonde hair; a look he’s been rocking ever since the show first aired in 2011. However, fans were sent into a major tizzy over the weekend when the star revealed that he’d been for a rare chop – and let’s just say, it’s pretty drastic!

Believe it or not, Jamie has, in fact, shaved his entire head and is now sporting a pretty bold buzz cut! Ready to see Jamie as you’ve never seen him before? Then stop stalling and keep scrolling!

Jamie is believed to be currently filming for the celebrity edition of Channel 4’s Hunted, alongside ex co-star and fellow Chelsea boy Spencer Matthews. The game show focuses on a team of contestants going on the run from a team of pro hunters, so if Jamie’s latest look is meant to avoid him being recognised he’s on to a winner!

Jamie has opened up in the past about his struggle with hair loss and a receding hairline, admitting to using hair-loss drops while on Made in Chelsea in order to try and salvage his mane. So while it feels like the end of an era for his blonde locks, it’s great to see him looking so happy and confident with his new look. What do you think?!
