Cynthia Nixon is proving that bald can indeed be beautiful.
The former Sex and the City star certainly got everyone's attention this morning when she showed up on Live With Kelly minus her mane.
So, why did the 45-year-old actress decide to lose her locks?
For the sake of her craft.
Starting Thursday, Nixon will take to the stage to play a poetry professor who undergoes treatment for cancer in the Broadway premiere of the play Wit at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre in NYC.
The Great White Way gig comes nearly 12 months after Nixon and her partner, Christine Marinoni, welcomed their son, Max.
From diaper duty to daring 'do, it's definitely been quite a year!
