For the second straight year, Gov. Charlie Baker buzzed his head in a charity event that raised more than $4 million for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Baker was joined in the barber’s seat by WGBH’s Jim Braude, Dropkick Murphy’s Ken Casey, and Secretary of Environmental Affairs Matt Beaton, among others.

Braude, for one, was a fan of Baker’s new look.

“Look at the governor, by the way,” Braude said. “He looks hot.”

In a short speech after the cut, a short-haired Baker said the event was “very, very special” and that it was important to show solidarity with those fighting cancer. He added that he’ll likely do it again next year.

“Why the hell wouldn’t I?” he said. “It’s a renewable resource, right? It’s gonna grow back.”
