Ibrahimovic has rocked longer hair for most of his career and the ponytail has become synonymous with his image.
But the AC Milan forward took to social media on Sunday afternoon to share an image of himself training.
With what is likely to be an app on his phone, the Swedish international made himself bald and captioned the photo: "All in."
Bald Zlatan?! Surely not. He looks like Ben Kingsley pic.twitter.com/E3wio07oc5

Behind his head is a shadow, which is likely the bun of his ponytail edited out.
It hasn't stopped social media questioning everything they know however and they aren't ready for bald Ibrahimovic.
@Ibra_official looking like Stone Cold Steve Austin, as if defenders weren't scared before, now they'll be terrified. #ThatsTheBottomLine coz #Zlatan said so. @steveaustinBSR pic.twitter.com/EsJLxqaa9T

He's scored 12 goals in just nine games with Stefano Pioli's side sitting top of Serie A.
Outside of goalscoring, he's also bringing experience and grit the San Siro outfit have lacked in recent years.
The 20-year-old wanted to wear gloves on his Rossoneri debut against Sparta Prague and Ibrahimovic objected in a big way.
He told CorSport per SoccerLaduma: "Some weeks ago, Pierre Kalulu made his debut with AC Milan and he was wearing gloves.
"I told him to take them off! How does a young centre-back look making his debut with gloves?
"For sure he's not going to scare the striker."
Despite seeming harsh, Ibrahimovic's instructions seem to have worked. Milan kept a clean sheet and went on to win the game 1-0.
