David Beckham's Hair In The '90s Was Actually Kind Of Cute (PHOTOS)

If the women at HuffPost Style can agree on one thing, it's that David Beckham is a certifiable hottie.

Seriously. Whether he's rocking undies for H&M, sporting a jersey during a game or hitting the town with daughter Harper Beckham, we can't really get enough of the British footballer. But was he always this dreamy?

Short answer: yes. But he did have some '90s-tastic hair back in the day. In honor of his 38th birthday today (May 2nd), we decided to dig up an old snap of Becks celebrating his team's win after a match between West Ham United and Manchester United in 1997. Check out that gelled, slicked-back 'do and green pantsuit. Of course, he eventually grew into his style and married Victoria Beckham in 1999, leaving all of us ladies to hopelessly admire him from afar -- hey, the man ages like fine wine.

Happy birthday, David!
