Penn Jillette has cut off his hair -- and shared the experience step by step with pictures on Twitter.

The magician and all-around showman shed about 10 inches of his trademark ponytail Wednesday, with partner Teller assisting on scissors and wife Emily handling technology and publicity.

The pics were taken during a Locks of Love Cut-A-Thon, held at the Rio in Las Vegas. Locks of Love helps kids who’ve lost their hair due to medical treatment.


‘Thanks for all the kind words about my haircut,’ Penn said later to his Twitter followers. ‘I don’t really care if it looks stupid, but I’m glad some people are kind. Thanks so much.’

Check out all the pics from Emily Jillette, and let us know in comments what you think about Penn’s incredible disappearing hair.
