The History of David Beckham's Hair: Part 2

Welcome back to MFB for the second part in the exciting life of David Beckham's hair.

Following his big money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid in June 2003, for the tidy sum of £24.5million, Beckham added this long blonde number to the ‘Galacticos’ of Madrid.
Looking more like Goldilocks who was missing 3 bears (But what about Ronaldo??!) than a footballing Super Star, Becks new hairstyle certainly captivated his form at the time, scoring on his debut in the Spanish Super Cup.

With his new Madrid lifestyle well under way, David didn’t change his hairstyle for a few months, choosing to continue to grow the ‘Goldilocks’ style further, creating a dramatic longer look, which can be seen being sported in a ponytail in the image to the side.

This longer, glamorous look was accustomed to the Hollywood lifestyle the Beckham’s craved and this style was the start of their journey of ‘cracking’ the States.

Clearly tired of the maintenance involved in long hair, Beck’s chose to have a large portion of it cut off and reverted back to a shorter, spiked look which was tinted blonde at the tips.

Still a Real Madrid legend in the making, this new look is still a hit with the fans, and adds to the earning power of the ‘Beckham Brand’ to the Madrid giants.

Onwards and upwards, or should I say longer?

Becks grows his latest ‘do’ slightly longer, and goes for the longer sided look while still at Real Madrid, but also allowing the blonde tints we know Beckham for, to grow out making the then England captain seem more intellectual.

Trimmed at the sides and left longer at the front, Becks grows this shorter ‘quiff’ in preparation for the World Cup Finals 2006 in Germany.
At a time when the then England captains form was under scrutiny, this hairstyle certainly keeps up his form in the hair stakes adding to Beckham mania that swept the country before the competition.

At a time when Beckham was recapturing the form that Real Madrid take notice, having first battled his way back into the Galactico line-up of the Madrid giants, Becks went for one of his most striking looks ever, Platinum Blonde, for the completion of a set of photographs with his wife Victoria for top photographer Stephen Klein.

Sporting a pair of aviators, Becks stepped off the plane in Madrid more accustomed to a Hollywood film star, especially after his contract signing with Los Angeles Galaxy after contract talks with Real Madrid broke down early in the 2006/2007 Spanish season.

The Platinum look even grabbed the attention of his team-mates who reportedly nicknamed Becks ‘Marilyn’ after Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe.

With his new nickname rife among his team-mates, Becks decided to take his hair back to the past with a closer, shorter look to see out his time in the Spanish capital.

With this new (or should I say old?) style, still complete with Platinum Blonde, Becks pretty much single handily guided Real Madrid to their first Spanish title in 4 years, a first for Beckham since his move in 2003 from Manchester United, while also recapturing his England place after Steve McClaren saw the error of his way.

With this Hollywood style under his belt, Becks moves to LA Galaxy on a free transfer making his debut against Chelsea at the end of July 2007, signalling the start of Beckhams transition to the United States of America and a new chapter in his History.
