Victoria Beckham’s daughter Harper, 7, got a haircut just like her mom

At some point in life, many little girls try to emulate their mothers. Whether it’s getting into her makeup, tottering around in her heels or trying on her clothes, I’m sure a lot of us have done something to be a little like mom. Victoria Beckham’s adorable seven-year-old daughter is no exception, recreating one of her mom’s most famous hairstyles.

Over the weekend, Victoria shared pictures of her daughter’s new ‘do, a cute chopped bob reminiscent of Victoria’s Spice Girls-era style. She also posted a photo of Harper with dad David Beckham with the caption, “Family time is everything @davidbeckham kisses from us all x VB.” That second picture seems like more proof that they’re living the “happy marriage, happy family” narrative they promoted in their recent British Vogue spread.

The bob isn’t the only thing Harper loves about her mom. The little girl loves the movie Spice World. (Who doesn’t?) As Victoria shared,“Spice World has been on heavy rotation this holiday!” Harper is “obsessed” with the Spice World double decker bus and loves the “little Gucci dress” scene.

I think it’s sweet that Harper is adopting mom’s look, but I’m glad she’s still smiling in photos. Don’t copy mom with that aspect of her aesthetic, Harper.

    I had almost the exact same hair cut when I was about 10. It looks much cuter on Harper though.

    • Nancy says:

      That made me smile Erinn! I bet you looked adorable. I could never have that hair style with my curls. Thank you whoever invented the straight iron.

      • Erinn says:

        Haha, thanks Nancy. It was much better than the previous one which looked a lot like Winona Ryders 90’s pixie cut or Janine Turner on Northern Exposure. My parents still claim it was ADORABLE, but I hated the short hair. The Posh one was more of my decision than theirs at least. Mine was just a bit more angled than Harper’s.

        My mother still says “You should cut some of that” whenever she sees how long it is. But she’s all about the short hair – I can’t remember her ever having anything but short hair my whole life. Her argument to support my haircuts was that I would physically fight her when she tried to brush it – so it avoided some of the conflict by chopping it. Come to find out it was being beat into submission by brushing and hair dryers because as an adult it’s actually pretty wavy if I let it do what it wants.

      • Nancy says:

        😀 Mothers seem to like short hair. Mine too, nothing like a mop of short curls, ala Shirley Temple. Mine comes to at least my shoulders. I promised I wouldn’t do the same to my daughters, and I haven’t. I gotta tell you, I thought Winona looked cute in her pixie, maybe mom was on to something!!!

  2. Chaine says:

    Are we sure she is copying mom? It looks like a standard little girl haircut to me. Probably tired of the tangles from the long hair and the scalp ache from the braids.

  3. SM says:

    Well, if Harper leans into her mom’s independant business woman/working mother phrase, not the football’s superstar trophy wife phrase, then yay!

    • Char says:

      Since Victoria started as a superstar on her own, then chose to be the most famous wag, and later became a succesful business woman in fashion, any way Harper get inspired by her mom will be ok.

    • whatever says:

      Her fashion brand has been bailed out by her husband money for years now because it is haemorrhaging money. Simon Fuller is the brains behind the brand and Roland Mouret was allegedly the designer behind her earlier collections so I’m not sure how much of independent businesswomen she actually is.

      • Jane says:

        And Beyonce is a song writer.

        Who cares. As long as you are successful

      • whatever says:


        But she isn’t that successful, is she? She’s had to make loads of redundancies to her fashion brand, her clothes aren’t selling that well and her husband has to keep bailing her out with his money.

  4. AppleTartin says:

    While i’m sure her mom wants to turn her into a mini-me. A bob haircut is standard haircut many have, she looks adorable. So I will give her a pass on that one. I just pray she doesn’t follow in the anorexia footsteps.

  5. Anastasia says:

    That top pic is the closest to a smile I’ve seen on Vicky.

    And Harper is GORGEOUS.

    What’s with the pram in that one pic?

    • Wiffie says:

      I have a daughter about Harper’s age. No doubt she’s taking her baby doll for a walk! I even noticed she put her purse and probably diaper bag underneath, like my girl does, as well. I bet the collection of supplies she chose is adorable (and maybe a bit hilarious). I saw that and thought it looked really sweet and real.

  6. Lala11_7 says:

    I wonder did David have a bit of a breakdown cause he LOVED his Babygirl’s long hair!!!! It’s an adorable cut…and Harper seems to have all of the light that both of her parents have…so she’s a lucky little girl!

    • Tiffany says:

      He posted a pic of him cutting a little off before the stylist took over. It was a cute and very emotional post.

  7. Esmom says:

    I love that hairstyle on little girls, it’s just so adorable. I know some women who can really pull it off, too, but I’m not one of them. Too much work and it draws too much attention to my neck, which I hate. Harper is lovely. And I like the pink dress on Vicky, it looks fresh and cool.

  8. Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

    Yesssssss, thanks for covering this, Corey!

    I think this was so cute when I saw it! I love the little outfit she has on.

    The Beckhams were vacationing with the Gordon Ramsays and celebrated Tana Ramsay’s birthday. Then this seemed like the day after where the Beckhams did their own thing. Even Victoria’s family were there. There’s a photo where David’s with them. It seemed much nicer and closer than their previous family photos? Here, take a look:

    Well, he still has a sour look on his face.

  9. abbi says:

    Am I the only one who gets really uncomfortable with posts about kids? She’s 7. Is this really gossip or newsworthy?

    • Astrid says:

      I’m torn. On the one hand, this is a celebrity gossip site and just repeating what the family posted. On the other hand, we are looking at a 7 year old. I don’t believe anyone has anything bad to say about Harper

  10. KLJ says:

    Harper’s cut is really nice. I actually wish Victoria would cut her hair back into a bob. Short hair is really flattering on her and I always loved her bobs and I loved the pixie she did. I do not like the fall flat waves, stringy, Ken Paves era.

  11. Jovi says:

    Yes, that ludicrous “happy family narrative” they have been pushing for…. 20 years. Damn, we are such fools for not seeing through it!

  12. themummy says:

    In the top photo… Victoria is literally half the size of her 7-yr-old daughter. Two of her could fit in Harper’s midsection width! And Harper is a perfectly normal sized little girl! 1) I think that sends a terrible message to Harper. 2) That’s just not normal. And 3) Victoria’s head looks ridiculous on her body–giant in comparison.
