Before moving into hairdressing, Alex was a carpenter. Although he enjoyed the craftsmanship, he missed the human contact. He then saw that barbering could offer an outlet for his creativity within a social environment. Before joining Huckle the Barber, Alex worked at several salons in London's West End, finally working as Master Barber at Alfred Dunhill in Mayfair.
Alex describes himself as a movie geek and can recall trivia from everything from James Bond to Marvel blockbusters. When it comes to music, his taste is unashamedly mixed - anything from country to drum'n'bass. He has a real passion for classic cars and even boasts that his first car was a rather elegant old Mini Cooper.
