Recession Alert: David Beckham

David Beckham might be unmatched on the soccer field, but off the field, it appears he's fighting the same fight as millions of other men - a receding hairline! 

In recent photos of the athlete, 36, you can see early signs of temporal recession, which isn't at all uncommon for a man his age. Thirty percent of men in their 30s experience hair loss and the number increases to 40 percent as men enter their 40s. From the photos, it appears that Beckham is Norwood Class II, which means that while his hairline is maturing, typical of an adult hairline, he has yet to see any frontal balding. He is also fortunate to have an otherwise full head of hair.

Considering his status on the Hollywood A-list, Beckham might want to consider a proactive hair regimen of FDA-approved Propecia or Rogaine, which could help him avoid any further recession. He would hardly be the first celebrity to take action against hair loss, more celebrities are investing in hair restoration than ever before. New technology and non-invasive procedures are selling points for many looking to enhance their looks discreetly. The NeoGraft FUE transplant has become a popular procedure among athletes as it avoids them having stitches in their donor area and calls for minimal recovery, usually three days, so it doesn't keep them out of the gym.
