David Alexander has been a licensed master haircutter for over two decades. He started his career as an apprentice in a traditional barbershop in Athens, Georgia in the late 1980’s. Since that time, he has served as a barber, trainer, shop manager, and shop owner as well director of operations and training for a national men’s chain. He has also served as a product educator for a national men’s grooming brand.
David’s specialties are men’s clipper cuts — fades, classic tapers, and pompadour styles are his hallmarks, but his favorite styles are those which combine classic barbering with a modern edge. Recently, his “Military Rockabilly” style was featured by Modern Salon as THE haircut of the year. David is also the founder of American Haircuts, a successful upscale men’s barber shop with two locations in Atlanta, Georgia. David is a licensed Master Stylist in the states of Georgia and California.
In addition to his time behind the chair, David was nationally recognized from 2008 through 2016 as the Men’s Hair Expert for About.com and he is the founder of HaircutsForMen.org, one of the oldest and most popular men’s hair and shaving sites in the world. In combination, these two sites general over 2 million page views per month from users seeking professional advice on men’s hair and shaving.
Since 2010, David has also served as a Volunteer Event Organizer for one of the largest St. Baldrick’s kids cancer research fundraisers in the world. The annual event David organizes in Atlanta, Georgia has raised nearly 1 million dollars for childhood cancer research. In April 2014, David appeared on NBC’s Today Show with over 5 million people watching, and set a new Guinness World Record for shaving the most heads in one hour (73) on behalf of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation (see the video from the show here: https://youtu.be/MZK8alio3EI).
David is also an accomplished actor and has appeared on television shows such as House of Cards (Netflix), NCIS: New Orleans (CBS), CSI: Cyber (CBS), Satisfaction (USA), Survivor’s Remorse (Starz), and The Inspectors (CBS).
