A newly-taken mugshot of Phil Spector in prison shows the music mogul completely free of the huge hair that was so striking during his trial.

The photo, taken in June and provided by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, also shows the 76-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer smiling broadly and wearing hearing aids on both ears.

Previous photos of Spector have shown him bald on top but with long, stringy hair in the back.

He is now completely bald, a far cry from the bizarre wigs he wore at his two trials.

He was convicted in 2009 of killing actress Lana Clarkson, and is serving a sentence of 19 years to life.

The conviction came after a stellar career as a pop innovator behind hits like Da Doo Ron Ron and You've Lost That Loving Feeling.
