Analyzing David Beckham's Hybrid Haircut

JoeSportsFanSenior Analyst INovember 23, 2009

Often times, athletes who are in the final stage of their career resort to a hybrid of the skills that once dominated previous phases of their lives.  No more power fastball?  Mix in more control.  A loss of scrambling prowess?  It’s pocket quarterback time.

This combination of seasoned talent is applicable for Los Angeles Galaxy posterboy, David Beckham, who has rolled portions of his most coveted skill into a cornucopia of refined excellence.  Namely, his hair.

A look at Beckham’s current do – which was proudly displayed during the Galaxy’s MLS Cup matchup against Real Salt Lake on Sunday night…

Now, let’s take a gander at Beckham’s previous hair styles…

Some long locks…some baldness…some mohawkness…a little grease with a hint of mullet…and some highlighted tips.

Our friends over at The Sports Pickle summed up Beckham’s new mane quite well last night.

“I was wrong about Beckham no longer being a style icon. Sorry. His haircut is already huge in Alabama.”


Although, we’re on to Beckham’s strategy. Mixing haircuts of yesteryear. This guy is so innovative.
