Romeo Beckham looks practically identical to dad David after dyeing his hair platinum blonde — and the former soccer star couldn't help but troll him about it!

Romeo, 18, has rocked long, flowing golden blonde hair for quite some time. But he just recently buzzed it off and bleached it to an icier shade reminiscent of the platinum hue his dad David, 46, had in the 2000s. 

The budding model debuted the bright blonde switch-up on Instagram and thanked colorist Josh Wood for the look. "Here's to expressing yourself through colour & a transformational cut 💛," Wood wrote. 

Romeo's mom Victoria Beckham gave the style her stamp of approval. "Wow!!!! Love!!!!" she wrote on her son's post

"Nice hair ❤️ @romeobeckham," David said. "I wonder where u got that idea from 😂."

Nowadays David is sporting a slightly longer style in his natural brown color, but rocked the blonde hue in 2008 (pictured above).
