    Hey Alex, a couple years ago I bought a computer. Me being a barber, one of the first things I did was google #1 barber. Obviously your website was the first thing to show. I skimmed over your sight, which by the way is awesome now, and I wrote you an email. The email I wrote you was very arrogant and disrespectful and immature. You responded to me accordingly and I realized right away that as talented as I am, I am nobody in this industry. I’ve watched your youtube videos and I’m am very active on BARBERLIFE. I have great respect for you and what you do for yourself as well as this industry. I don’t know if you remember those emails but your harsh words humbled me. I’m writing you again to thank you and tell you I am sorry. It would be an honor to meet you some day and until then I am humbly a fan.

    • ALEX CAMPBELL says:

        Wasup! I’m Shaun and I’m new to this site. I’ve been wavin’ for 9 months now. I have waves mainly on the left side of my head (not much though) and just a little bit on the right but you barely can see it. I’m very confused because I brush my hair twice a day, every single day and I usually spend 30 minutes for each session, I brush it more on the right side than I do on the left side but still, no results. I wash it once a week using uplifting shampoo and hair mayonnaise and I use hair fertilizer to keep my hair moist and I wear my durag every day but still, just a little bit of waves. I dont know if I’m doing something wrong or my waves is just not gonna get any better but I need to find out what’s going on. I also notice sometimes (not everytime) but sometimes after I wolf for a month and then get my hair cut, I notice that my hair looks very thin in some areas and it’s very frustrating after spending all that time wolfing and all I get is some thin and receding hair….. also, I hear everyone talk about how you should get a 1.5 or a number 2 cut, but after I wolf for a month or sometimes even 6 weeks, the barber tells me that he have to use a lower guard than a 1.5 because otherwise it would not cut hardly anything off my head. So I’m writing this email today because I really need some advice like crazy. I’ve been trying to reach my goal for too long now, so I’m willing to keep fighting for answers, thank you! really looking forward to hearing from somebody!

    I bought your dvds a long while back and was reviewing them recently and my question is, do you still adjust and sharpen clippers for payment? I have some styliner 2 clippers that need to come off the bench .

    Also I am a licensed barber as well recieved my papers in 2009 I cut in a shop for almost 2 years I was 19 when I started cutting in the shop. I recently viewed one of your videos on youtube where you informed viewers that these days barbers have to much pride. I was working a full time job and trying to build my clientele and convert. I was thrilled about the profession in the begining but after events took place such things as people where using and stealing my supplies when I wasnt there. My cuts where decent just coming out of school but the flaws that they could see in my cuts they found my short comings amusing at times. I would say to myself at times being the youngest in the establishment every else mid and late 30’s people can’t be this insecure about hair. Don’t get me wrong I learned a great deal during my experinece my cuts hace come a long way and I have become very swift. I had one particular person I was attempting to follow he was the best barber I had ever seen in my life. I put my pride to the side and spoke to him man to man. I told him I wanted to become superior in the profession just like him I wanted to know everything he knew. Everything was cool he would always say I don’t mind helping anyone but down the line things changed it went from me watching and learning to him coming out and saying you trying to steal my style. I felt as if sooner or later which me picking his brain and skill he probaly would have felt threaten by me maybe I don’t know. I no longer cut because thats something I don’t have time for I never thought something so simple could reach a level of intensity like that it’s ridiculous. Like you said everyone has to learn from someone. I don’t understang I admire you for everything you do god will truly bless you sometimes people forget what others have done for them. From your state of mind what would you advise me to do? Thank you for your time as well sir.

    • ALEX CAMPBELL says:

      That’s a problem that exists in every city in most barbershops. If you are going to let that bug you then you should stop cutting. Sounds minor to me. Once you learn something you can move on and keep growing at your own pace. Once you learn what you need, nobody can take it from you. So you take what you have learned and move on to bigger and better opportunities.

    Sir I would like to know if there is anyway you could demonstrate the best way to hold the andis masters while cutting after a duration of time they tend to hurt my hand while cutting because of the shape and the akward position. I like the cutting quality but the seniors have a better handling quality in my opinion.

    • ALEX CAMPBELL says:

      How do you hold the Andis Masters different from the Wahl seniors? If you are holding them the same way and you feel it’s the shape that’s the problem, then i suggest stop using Andis Masters and just cut with the Wahl seniors.

    Alex I consider myself self taught along with watching barbers cut. I am Mexican American and have cut my Black friends hair all the time he was a little sceptical at first. My question to you is would Black men avoid me as a barber in a shop? Would it be a wall i would have to tear down coming into the industry?

    • ALEX CAMPBELL says:

      There will be a wall to tear down reguardless of race. People are funny when it comes to there hair. Just be consistent and work long hours and you will be just fine.
