David Beckham is a massive trend setter, if not THE trend setter, when its comes to male grooming and men’s fashion – he’s someone most men look up to, aspire to be like and you’ll find we feature him on GroomingMail quite a lot.
Over David’s time in the public eye, he has supported a wide range of hair styles, some fresh and on-trend styles and a few that weren’t so great – like cornrows, what was he thinking?
Thankfully, through all the trial and error of David Beckham’s hair, he is now the ultimate style and grooming king and his hair is 100% on point. Curious about David’s previous hairstyle? Check out our ‘Look Back At David Beckham’s Hairstyles Over The Years’

How To Style Your Hair Like David Beckham
Below is a great video by ‘Slikhaar TV‘ which shows you how to style your hair the same way David styled his in H&M’s marketing campaign, the advert where we we saw him running around town in his underwear – a win for some all over the world!
In the campaign we see David Beckham supporting his traditional side sweep/quiff – a style which is bang on trend for this year. The video has some recommended products which will help you achieve hair like David’s side sweep/quiff at home, we’ve tried them and can confirm the products work a treat.

David Beckham Hair Product:
In the video the guys show you what products you need to use to help style your hair like David – the guys recommend using Gold Digger 65ml which is a professional hair wax with an extreme hold and a matte finish. You can pick this product up for around £50 on amazon, which at first seems a litter pricey but when you read the reviews (rated 5* online) it seems to be worth every penny – you won’t be disappointed.
That ‘side sweep/quiff’ hairstyle that Beckham rocks looks so natural, not styled with loads of product or made to look greasy, over-groomed and unnatural.
It genuinely looks like he could have rolled out of bed, ran his fingers through his hair and was ready to go – a big thumbs up as hair with too much product is a big no no!
David Beckham Hairstyle Guide:
Alternatively you can follow the below step by step guide to get your own David Beckham hairstyle. Easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…
- Apply a styling mousse onto damp hair to provide it with hold and root lift.
- Blow dry your hair back and away from the face, working especially on the front section of the hair.
- Once your hair is dried properly, depending on how straight your hair is you may wish to straighten your hair so it is easier to work with.
- Apply the product, working the hair in a sideward motion and the front into a quiff-like style. Choose between a workable wax or creamy paste for the best results.
- Finish off by spraying the hair with a lasting finishing hairspray; this will assure the style is kept in place all day. See our recommended hairsprays for men below – hairspray that gives you maximum hold to keep your hair how you styled it.
