Just snap a #1 guard on a pair of clippers and buzz it all off. 02 of 13 Textured Layer Cut Photo © Ross Kinnaird | Getty Images For this style, David Beckham's hair is cut in medium layers all over the head.

The hair is cut short on the sides but left a little longer in back. On top, the front hairline is tapered short and a bit more length is left at the crown of the head. 04 of 13 Short Back and Sides Photo © Giuseppe Bellini | Getty Images This is my favorite of David Beckham's looks.

The back is left in a natural taper, while the top is cut to add texture and create a slightly square shape. 05 of 13 Crewcut Photo © Handout | Getty Images Another low maintenance look for David Beckham.
