  Schoolboy suspended for Beckham haircut
Updated 20 May 2003, 09.09
Becks new haircut is called cornrows
A boy from Merseyside has been suspended from school for having the same hair style as England captain David Beckham.

Kenny Jamieson, 14, has been told he's not allowed to go to the Savio Roman Catholic High School in Bootle with the style.

He'll be allowed back to sit his Sat exams, but the school told The Times newspaper that Kenny won't be allowed to sit with his mates.

The style, called cornrows, is popular with rap stars, which may be where rap-fan Becks got the idea from.

But a hairdresser has warned that the style could be bad for the mega-trendy Manchester United player.

Trevor Mitchell said the hairstyle wasn't really for people with light fine hair like Becks, and the tight twists in it could cause the hairs to break.

If that happens in the wrong place there's a chance that the hair might not grow back, leaving poor old Becks bald - what would Victoria say about that?!
