Finding his life’s purpose took some time for celebrity barber Alexander Davis. Just like many fresh college graduates, he also struggled with the path he wanted to take in life. All he knew was, he wanted to make money in a legal way and work his way from there. Little did he know that the moment he picked up his first clippers, the wheels in his newfound career would start turning. It was then that he realized that he was destined to become a barber, one who is sought after, and someone who inspires others to take risks.
The native of Brooklyn, New York, was only 25 years old when he decided to move to Houston, Texas, to pursue his barber career. He did not know what the future held for him there, but he was determined to try his luck and make it work. Determined to give the best haircut possible to his various clients, Alexander Davis became a household name in no time at all. While he did not have that many connections in Texas, he let his haircuts speak for themselves. Not only did people find them remarkable, but they also started telling their friends about the new guy in town who gave exceptional haircuts.
The now 27-year-old celebrity barber, barber mentor, and educator has done haircuts for an impressive roster of celebrities that include Snoop Dogg, Funny Mike, RunikTV, Da baby, 21 Savage, Jaydayoungan, Rizzo Rizzo, Ayo Tae, FMB Longmoney, Nyyear, King Kaiser, and Chris Sails, to mention a few. Among the many styles that Alexander Davis is capable of doing, he is best known for the drop fade, one that closely resembles the fade haircut. He does it with so much ease, confidence, and skill that his clients cannot get enough of his impressive talent. For him, satisfying the expectations of his clients has always been one of the keys to his success.
“If you find something you love stick to it! Because your vision of success everyone might not see and it’s not for them to see! Grind it out one day at a time and watch how you become successful,” Davis explains.
Despite his current success, Alexander Davis is not slowing down at all with the one thing he does best. He is looking forward to owning franchises of barbershops and establishing a Barber’s College where young people like him can get the appropriate training they need in order to launch their careers as barbers. Remembering how difficult it was for him when he was just starting out and building his personal brand as a serious and skilled barber, he would like to be instrumental in helping future celebrity barbers acquire the skills they need to be successful.
If anything, Alexander Davis wishes to be an inspiration to young people out there who also aspire to explore a career in being a full-time barber. Just as he never gave up and continued to persevere during tough times, he wants to teach others how he pushed himself to be the best until a time came when he did not need to prove himself to anyone anymore.
