Harper Beckham got a new Anna Wintour-esque bob & bangs haircut

Victoria Beckham often posts photos of her kids on her social media. It’s always very sweet – you can tell that all of the Beckham kids just adore their parents, and you can also tell that Harper Beckham is probably the most adored little girl in the world. Harper’s parents and her big brothers utterly adore her. Since I check in Posh’s Instagram all the time, I know that Harper had very long hair for a while, then she got a more kid friendly haircut but still basically had longish hair. But ahead of Victoria’s latest runway show, Harper’s got a big haircut: a bob (or lob) with a severe set of bangs.

Harper debuted her new look at Victoria’s runway show, where Harper was joined by her dad, all of her brothers and Anna Wintour. The new haircut has caused people to say that Harper is now Anna’s Mini-Me. It is a strikingly similar haircut. Do you think that was the purpose? Or do you think Harper just wanted something new, and it happened to be Anna Wintour’s signature haircut???

I’ve always shared my aversion to bangs, and it’s mostly because I have bangs-related trauma from having these kinds of thick bangs as a kid. For some reason, my mom insisted that I should have really thick bangs and it wasn’t until I was a tween that I could finally grow them out. I hope Harper grows to dislike her bangs, because they’re not great. Sorry to say, but… really. She’s still super-cute, and this is “cute” for a kid, but still!

    Harper is a beauty and Anna is smiling, alls well.

    I feel like this is a natural part of the growing up process. Hasn’t everyone had basically this hair cut at some point in their lives?!?

      I have curly hair so I have never had bangs, though I dearly wanted them when I was a kid. My best friend had a set bangs that started in the middle of her head and went to her eyelashes. I thought they were fabulous! LOL

      I had this haircut when I was a kid, albeit with looooong straight hair (a kid of the late 60s!). I moved to a “Dorothy Hamil” (NOT a good look! I cried when the first cut was made-my hair was down my back at the time- and asked the stylist to “put it back!” lol. Needless to say, it was promptly grown out). and I also had the “Tenille” cut in my late teens (Toni Tenille from The Captain &… fame), which evolved into the shag that Jane Fonda had in “Klute”. I think experimenting is something all kids go through.

      Harper is a cutie, and I think she’s looks cute. I doubt her hair is as severely styled when she’s not in the front row of LFW 😊

    Mom had my hair cut like that once. I was in a private school with those plaid red pinafores, and the pictures are horrid. The whole strict, religious, uniformed era of that existence brings nightmares and that haircut was just the icing on a bad cake lol.

  4. Chaine says:

    ITA, the long bangs are not the best hairstyle on Harper. They look like the bangs moms used to cut in the 70′s by laying a piece of tape across a section of hair and then cutting along the tape line. Regardless, she is a cute child, a bob style is probably a lot less tangles and tears for her, and if she dislikes the bangs, they’ll grow out quickly, no harm done.

    Anna Wintour is the one I’m laughing at, shown up in no uncertain terms as having a 6-year-old’s haircut.

    • Dee says:

      Hahahahaha! Awesome! Vogue Devil makes lifelong commitment to bowl cut of awkward 6 year old!

    • Spicecake38 says:

      I had friends who were trimming each other’s bangs,one placed the scotch tape across the bangs of the other,and proceeded to cut her bangs along the TOP of the tape,she had about 1/2 inches of bangs,hilarious!

  5. Originaltessa says:

    Ugh, I cried and didn’t talk to my mom all day after she gave me this exact haircut. She’s cute no matter what, but if I’m being honest, I preferred being able to see her adorable little face.

  6. heloncearth says:

    I don’t think they are heavy – Harper looks to have very fine hair, and you can still see her eyebrows through the fringe (bangs).

    I imagine if she doesn’t like them, they are long enough to be clipped back and shouldn’t take long to grow out.

    • Nancy says:

      That’s a perfect haircut for fine hair. However…haha, she’s a little girl. Those long bangs will drive her crazy. I know my peanut would have a bow, barrette or something to push them out of her eyes, of course it would be me doing it! Harper is a cutie. One girl amongst all the boys, how spoiled will she be! Side Note: Nancy Pelosi really works shades better than Anna, right. 😎

      • Spicecake38 says:

        My daughter had no hair at birth,and her hair grew slowly until about age 2,she just sort of ended up with this hairstyle,and I was determined to have her bangs grown out before pre school,so for a very long time I clipped her bangs backwards with a barrette.I remember the day she came to me holding this clump(I thought it was dog fur)She looked at me and said here mommy I cut out your butterfly (the barrette was a pink butterfly)you can have it back..
        I think children will have numerous hairstyles for many reasons.

    Seems like Harper was just a baby about five minutes ago!

    • Tiffany says:

      Right ???!!!

      I still remember the photo David and Victoria posted on each of their FB accounts holding her shortly after her birth.

  8. Senator Fan says:

    She is a cutie for sure and prefer the longer hair on her. Sounds like we all have horror haircut stories to tell. lol I don’t know if it’s just me but Harper has her mother’s wanty look to her. Somewhere between resting bitch face and a look of wanting something but don’t know what it is since I have everything look.

  9. Beth says:

    So cute. I had bangs until I was 20, but long bangs like Harper’s will need to be trimmed every day, and would probably be annoying for her because they’ll always be in her eyes. When I was her age, my mom always said, “stop playing with your bangs. Leave them alone “

  10. PhillyGal says:

    Bangs are such a pain. You have to get them trimmed constantly for them to look right. Harper looks cute though.

  11. BANANIE says:

    I do suspect this was Victoria’s idea and not Harper’s. Like everyone else, I too have a haircut horror story (but instead of bangs, my mom cut my curly hair to above my ears! not a good look for me). I wish parents wouldn’t dictate their kids’ style so much.

  12. Lunde says:

    TBH I don’t think that we should be critiquing the bodies of 7 year olds!

  13. Cidey says:

    I think she looks adorable AND I’m delighted that the Beckham’s have opted to keep her a little girl in the looks department. She looks her age, not like a Vegas showgirl. Hooray

  14. cece says:

    too cute!

  15. Anuschka says:

    Harper is an awesome girl but this haircut makes her look like an old lady.

  16. horseandhound says:

    why do all of their sons look like jack dawson or the other poor men from titanic?

  17. Anare says:

    I too had this hair cut and one day I hid under the piano and cut the very middle of my bangs to about the hairline. Then I panicked and hid the chopped off hair under the foot pedals, pulled my Nehru bangs to the side and stuck a hair pin in them. Lol! Eventually I was busted by my dad when he combed my hair before we went shopping. Those bangs were hard to salvage! Harper is a doll. Lovely family. Hilarious comment #horseandhound, so true!
