David Beckham – The Hair Diaries.

Recreating the many hairstyles of David Beckham

It’s official, David Beckham is quitting football but I’m sure the shock of not seeing Becks on the football pitch has worn off now thanks to the massive media coverage since his announcement.

There’s been coverage about his many free kicks, his most important goals, his most iconic fashion statements and hair but so far no one has told you how to get the looks which is why some of the UK’s top hairdressers have picked out their favourite David Beckham hairstyles over his career and given their top tips on recreating some of his most famous looks.

How to nail a David Beckham Hairstyle:



Rae Palmer, former Southern Hairdresser of the Year shares her tips to recreate David’s 90’s do:

“The current 90’s revival means that it’s almost acceptable to re-visit the male hair style that dominated the period. Beware – only the very young and trendy can pull this look off and even then only as an ironic nod to the era. Using plenty of gel make a rough centre parting and pull hair forward at the front and slick down at the back. Hair needs to have a bit of length for this to work.”



Organic Colour Specialist Karine Jackson shares her expert advice to go blonde just like Becks:

“This metrosexual look might be a bit high maintenance for some men but great if you feel like going blonde for summer. For best results go and have a professional consultation. David went a bit too blonde for his natural colour here so I’d advise to tone it down and stay within three shades of your natural colour, your stylist will use a colour fan to find the best shade. Use a gentle colour with no ammonia – I recommend Organic Colour Systems – it uses heat to open the hair’s cuticles to absorb the colour instead of ammonia so is much less drying.”

The Mohawk


Ken Picton, the current Wales & South West hairdresser of the Year tells us how to get Beckham’s iconic look:

“This is probably the least maintenance out of all of Beckham’s do’s, but make sure you visit the salon to get it cut and avoid the temptation of taking a shaver to your own head unless you want it lopsided! Once it’s cut the styling will be minimal, maybe some hair gel or spray in the morning if anything but that’s it.”

The Normal One


Darren Ambrose, three times winner of the British Hairdressing Awards Avant Garde category tells us how to copy Beckham’s current (and arguably most wearable) style:

“This super modern cut suits most men, ask your stylist to keep the sides short with lots of length on top, this might mean leaving your hair to grow out for a few weeks first. To style blow dry the long section with a volume spray and then slick back. Finish with hairspray to keep everything in place.”
