What Our Members Are Saying
People love their SHU experience. See why it means so much to them.
“Trying to learn how to cut my own hair only caused me to become more frustrated and less confident. I knew that I needed more than just a few YouTube tutorials. That's when I decided to join Self Haircut University...
...What really makes this school stand out is the coaching calls with Alex Kouras himself. Alex is extremely patient and understands exactly what difficulties you are having with your self haircuts."
- Peter Papadopoulos, USA
“I never did it like this before, never. This is what I wanted... My regular haircuts look nothing like this... Huge difference. Humongous difference."
"I mean this is the best I've ever cut it... It's like comparing day to night... To be able to have step by step help in real time makes a huge difference. It's tailor made to your specific haircut."
"I knew from the get-go your hair grows back immediately...So let it grow back in, continue to practice and practice. Every weekend your hair's going to grow back in to practice again. Your technique is going to get better."
- Miguel Suarez, USA
"There's no better teacher I could ever ask for like Alex. I messed my hair up a few times before and thought that was the end of it. I DMed Alex one day and he convinced me to try again with his help and I'm so happy I gave it one last try. I couldn't be happier with my results. Thank you Alex for everything!"

How does the pricing work?Both Elite and VIP are lifetime access programs. Which means you only pay one-time when you join and that's it. There are no upcharges or additional fees later on. Plus, you will have access to the program for years.
Can I buy the program for my family or is it one program per person?SHU is one program per one person. There are no family plan options available at this time.
Can I join at any time?Yes, you are able to join at any time and any day of the week (24/7).
Are the lectures in SHU different than what Alex teaches on social media?Yes, every single lecture as of Mid-2024 is brand new and exclusively created for Self Haircut University. The new lectures have never been shown on Alex's social media accounts and they never will be. The program teaches more of the "Boring" details that Alex can't post on social media because "Boring" is not entertaining nor does it get any views. Every small detail you could imagine with 15 years of experience is part of SHU's curriculum. YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok only get the quick, entertaining versions of Alex's expertise. Meaning there are a lot of details left out of each video in order for the video to stay entertaining to each viewer.
Are the Elite lectures different than VIP lectures?The lectures alone are the same in both Elite and VIP. However, there are many more self-haircut tutorials and hands-on education within the VIP program compared to the Elite program. The biggest differences between Elite and VIP are listed at the top of the website next to the "Enroll" button.
Where do I watch the lectures after joining?Every lecture is located within SHU's Teachable account. As soon as you click "Enroll" and pay for Elite or VIP, you will be redirected to the "Thank You Page" with the link to start watching the lectures and a few other helpful tips before getting started.
Should I start cutting my hair after watching the lectures or while watching them?Best practice would be to finish all the lectures first, and then begin cutting your hair. But this will vary for each person. If you feel confident to start right away, you can practice cutting your own hair while going through each lecture.
How many people usually join the weekly coaching calls?Alex likes to keep the coaching calls to less than 4 students at a time so that he's able to answer everyone's questions. This way everyone feels like they are a priority and are getting all of their questions answered.
I’m a beginner, will this work for me?100%. Alex does a great job organizing the lectures so that you skip all the unnecessary information and get started from the very beginning to the point where you know everything Alex has ever learned in his 15+ years of self-haircutting.
I’m not a beginner, what will I gain by joining SHU?Even though Alex has 15+ years of self-haircut experience, he is always still trying to learn more and learn new techniques every week that will make his haircuts better and finish them faster. Education never ends when you want to continually grow. So if you have 6 months of experience or 5 years of experience, you're guaranteed to be a part of a program that will not stop growing and trying to learn new ways of cutting hair faster and with nicer results. If you want to brush up on your knowledge, the programs are great way to solidify what you already know and pick up on new tips that you might not have known before joining. There's been advanced students that have joined SHU "Thinking they were advanced" and then were blown away after speaking with Alex and hearing what he has to teach from his perspective. Ask yourself, are you actually an advanced student to self-haircutting? What information are you trying to get beyond what you currently already know from SHU? Chances are Alex could help you expand on these questions and help you figure out how to get your self-haircuts to the next level.
