Years before he played Eric Northman on True Blood, a fresh-faced A-Skars wore his Swedish tresses long and layered, giving him a laid-back surfer vibe.
Fast-forward three years: Alex lands the role of a lifetime as vampire Eric Northman on HBO's True Blood. When we first meet the shady sheriff of Area 5, he's sporting a beach-blond, chin-length bob.
After completing the first season of True Blood, Alex jumped on the trend bandwagon and got bangs. While we much prefer his forehead fringe gelled back, we appreciate his attempt at being edgy.
The following year, Alexander debuted Eric Northman's sophisticated new 'do (sans facial scruff, of course) at the True Blood premiere in the summer of 2009. RIP Viking Eric!
Someone got a little scissor happy later that fall when True Blood was on hiatus. We love you Alex, but honestly, don't do this again.
Alex redeemed himself in the summer of 2010 when he arrived at the True Blood Season 3 premiere with a perfectly polished (and slightly darker) cut. Much better, A!
Just when you think perfection can't get any more perfect, Alexander steps out with a coif that even the most polished politician would covet. And that blue power suit? We die.
But alas! All good things must come to an end. Just a couple months later, Alex went back to bangs for his role in What Maisie Knew opposite Julianne Moore.
After wrapping up What Maisie Knew, Alex went back to his roots (literally) and sported a well-coiffed, sun-kissed blond 'do. Much better!
Alex's hair was sky high at the Avengers ;premiere in April 2012! We're not sure how we feel about this look ...
Currently, Alexander's hair is a bit darker, using less gel and putting the focus on his abundance of facial hair.
Alexander Skarsgard's beautiful blond locks have gone through quite the transformation throughout the years. Take a look back at some of the True Blood actor's most memorable cuts and coifs.
