About David Alexander
Mostly self-taught, this former owner of two Atlanta barbershops honed and perfected his craft in an Old School shop in Athens, GA. Before relocating to LA, he was a Vice President and Director of Training for a national chain of men’s salons and counts traditional barbers as his greatest inspiration.
His music playlist finds classic artists like Frank Sinatra and Johnny Cash paired with modern musical luminaries such as Kendrick Lamar. When not hiking Runyon Canyon, you’ll find him practicing his favorite modern gentleman cut at Baxter Finley where he’s especially well known for excellent tapers and fades. His favorite song to play as he cuts is Johnny Cash’s “Walk The Line,” which couldn’t be apropos.
If he looks familiar, you might have seen him on House of Cards, CSI and NCIS: New Orleans. He once set a Guinness World Record on The Today Show for shaving the most heads in one hour on behalf of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research.
