‘I wonder where you got that idea!’: Romeo Beckham, 18, channels dad David’s iconic noughties buzz cut as he debuts striking new platinum hairdo… and is playfully teased by the footballer


Romeo Beckham took to Instagram from Josh Wood’s┬áLondon┬ásalon on Sunday to debut his brand new platinum blonde buzz cut.

The budding footballer, 18 – who looked typical trendy in a graphic T-shirt teamed with corduroy trousers – later shared a snap of himself sitting at a garden table while showing off his new look.


Romeo’s dad David – who rocked an identical hairstyle in 2007 – was quick to poke fun at his son for copying him, writing: ‘Nice hair @romeobeckham I wonder where u got that idea from.’

David’s cheeky comment quickly racked up nearly 2000 likes, with one social media user noting: ‘Like his dad.’

Doting mum Victoria also gave her son’s new hairstyle the seal of approval, telling the teenager: ‘Wow! Love!’

Romeo has often copied his famous father’s hairstyles – back in May last year he wore his locks in braids as he spent time in lockdown with his family. 

This was a nod to David’s iconic 2003 look, with Romeo also sporting a man bun like his dad.  

Romeo’s girlfriend Mia Regan was also quick to assure him that she was a fan of his new look, leaving an emoji with a heart beneath his post.

The loved-up eighteen year olds celebrated their two-year anniversary this week, and both marked the milestone on social media.

Romeo posted a black-and-white image of himself cuddled up to his girlfriend, captioned with four love hearts.

Mia, meanwhile, shared a photo montage and a short video that she captioned: ‘2 years of NUFIN BUT LOVEEEE! Grate for u stink.’ [sic]

Mia uploaded a screengrab of a FaceTime call with Romeo followed by a hilarious snap of herself sleeping during a car ride with her boyfriend and his younger sister, Harper, nine.

As Mia snoozed, Harper – who is the youngest of David and Victoria Beckham’s four children – wrapped her arms around her big brother’s girlfriend while cheekily poking her tongue out.

In the final playful photo shared by Mia, she pretended to take a bite out of Romeo’s cheek while he grinned for the camera.

Romeo and Mia have been going strong since May 2019, with the pair going public in September that year.
