David Beckham’s collaboration with H&M is a big joy for his fans. This photo is from the last year’s launch of Beckham’s bodywear range.

The hairline that seems practically horizontal and David’s signature back sweep look pretty impressive.
Shaved temples definitely flatter David Beckham’s face. They accentuate his wide cheekbones and strong manly jawline. That’s why he often has his hair cut with extra short sides or temple undershaves. This haircut features slightly elongated razored hair on top and tapering of the length from the crown towards the nape. We love the highlighted spot in particular.

These days most men feel ok about hair bleaching. Dyeing solutions on men look the best when done on slightly outgrown hair.

Guys who do not mind experimenting with different hairstyles for elongated hair will like this nice haircut. The blunt cut temples and nape don’t require any additional styling efforts. They are going to look natively neat. And, as for the quiff and top hair, they are point cut for an added volume that you will appreciate in hairstyles with a lift at the roots like in the photo.

We do not agree, but on some boys who mimicked his style they really looked ridiculous.
