About Men’s Hair was created by David Alexander, a master barber and stylist whose goal is to give men haircare and shaving advice in a fun and informative fashion without all of the “salon speak.” Here you’ll find information on how to choose the right hairstyle, how to shave properly, how to care for your beard, and even galleries of men’s haircuts. Our goal is to give you all of the tools you need to look your best!
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 80’s. Since that time, he has served as a barber, trainer, shop manager, and shop owner as well as 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. For more on David, take a look at his website davidalexanderhair.com.
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 a leading advice website 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 generate 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 Foundation 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). He also recently worked on a film with Michael C. Hall called Christine. You can find out more in his acting career at his official website: http://pdavidalexander.com.
