David Beckham sports drastically thinning locks during shopping trip in the Cotswolds

David Beckham sports drastically thinning locks during shopping trip in the Cotswolds… less than two years after rumoured hair transplant

He was rumoured to have undergone a hair transplant in 2018 to save his famous locks.

But David Beckham’s hair was noticeably thinning in photographs taken during a shopping trip in the Cotswolds on Sunday.

The father of four, 45, who is in lockdown at his country home, ventured out without one of his signature hats, with his thinning locks hard to miss.

Heading to a local deli in the village of Burford to pick up supplies with his daughter Harper, eight, the former footballer’s famous mane was looking lacklustre.

In recent weeks David has rarely been seen without one of his favoured flat caps covering his hair, while he’s also posted social media snaps in baseball caps and bandanas in an effort to disguise his locks.

But back in 2019 the star was sporting a noticeably fuller head of hair. In an October 2019 advert for his whiskey brand Haig Club, his locks looked thick, styled into a quiff.

While at summer sporting events including a June Women’s World Cup match with Harper and the 2019 Wimbledon tournament in July, he was also looking confident with perfectly groomed long locks.

It was back in October 2018 that David first sparked speculation that he’d undergone a hair transplant.   

While his representatives have previously declined to comment on whether or not the sportsman has had a hair transplant, Beckham himself once suggested he wouldn’t be tempted to go through the costly process.

‘There is definitely nothing wrong with doing that,’ he said in 2012, ‘But I don’t think personally I would. If I do start showing signs of going bald, then I will shave it off.’

David’s close friend, director Guy Ritchie was recently rumoured to have undergone a hair transplant.

Last month the star showed off a thicker hairline in a photo with wife Jacqui. The 51-year-old director’s hairline looked noticeably fuller compared to a 2010 snap of the couple, shared by Jacqui as part of the ‘first photo’ challenge.

According to a hair restoration expert, the photos show the Snatch director has undergone treatment for hair loss.

Craig Henton, owner of Cheshire’s MHR Clinic, told MailOnline: ‘The photos show a big change in Guy’s hairline.

‘It’s obvious he has had treatment for hair loss and reversed his male pattern baldness. His hair loss in 2010 is reasonably advanced. Ten years on his hair seems much fuller and to be growing in areas where it wasn’t before. 

”For that to occur he’d have to do something. Whether it involved a surgical procedure or just medications is hard to tell.’
