David Beckham is a 36 year old English soccer player. He currently plays the position of midfielder for Los Angeles Galaxy. He has also played for the English national team, Real Madrid, and his all time favorite team, Manchester United. David is known for his interesting hairstyles that change quite often. Here, we are going to take a look at David Beckham hairstyles through the years.
Throughout much of his childhood, Beckham’s hair was cut relatively short with a fringe allowed to cover his forehead, stopping just above the eyes.
He began to come into his own as a soccer player. He joined Manchester United at the age of 14. It was then that he first began to change his hairstyles. That year, he styled his hair in spikes that stood up all over his head except on the sides and back, which were still cut short.
Beckham wore his hair cut a medium length and allowed it to sort of flop where it would. This gave him a rough tousled appearance.
He continued to wear this style in 1998, but had it dyed blonde.
In 1999, he added sideburns and a goatee to this simple style.
The year 2000 saw David wearing his hair in a buzz cut. He had the length of all the hair cut down to below a quarter of an inch. This was a low maintenance hairstyle except for the need to have frequent trims.
He went a bit more daring with a true Mohawk. The sides and back were shaved clean, leaving a stripe about an inch wide down the center that was styled into spikes standing up in the center. This was done in his natural hair color.
He had allowed the hair on the sides and back to grow back in while leaving the stripe in place. This developed into a faux hawk with the center stripe dyed blonde and the rest of the hair his natural brown. Later that same year, he had his hair cut to a uniform length and styled in spikes with blonde highlights.
David wore his hair in a medium length with a rough part down the center. This came to be called a bum part. The hair was tousled and he wore sideburns.
He was photographed in May of that year with his hair done up in corn rows. However, these tight braids did not last long.
June of 03 saw him wearing his hair cut to medium length and the top pulled back into a half ponytail or a top knot. In July, he added another short ponytail below the half ponytail he already had.
He chose to go with a buzz cut similar to that worn in 2000. The hair was cut very short, requiring no product or effort to maintain.
He had allowed his hair to grow back out to a medium length. He had a tousled, rough appearance and used an Alice band to keep the hair out of his eyes. A bit of pomade was needed to provide a soft hold.
2006 saw him with his hair cut short again, though not in a buzz. This year he chose to use pomade on his fingers to create spikes that stood up all over his head. For a harder hold, he may have used gel on the front spikes.
Early in 2007, Beckham had his hair cut very short on the sides and back while leaving the top about two inches in length. The top was styled into a tousled appearance that looked as if he had done nothing with it.
Later that year, he went back to the buzz cut, but had the hair dyed blonde again.
He kept this buzz cut into 2008, but added a beard and mustache grown in his natural dark color.
He went into 2009 with his hair cut short on sides and back and spikes in the front held in place with gel.
As the year progressed, he had a short length hairstyle and wore a mustache and beard.
David Beckham wore medium length hairstyle at The Imperial War Museum in London, Dec, 15 2010. His hair simply parted down the middle.
David Beckham arrived to the Royal Wedding on Friday April 29th, 2011, wearing slicked back side part hairstyle. The slicked back style is a classic style but still popular today.
