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

Josh T.

"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!"

  • Are the lectures in SHU different than what Alex teaches on social media?
    Yes, all 55+ lectures are 100% brand new as of April 5, 2024 and created exclusively for Self Haircut University. The new lectures have never been shown on Alex's social media accounts and they never will be. There are 55+ lectures averaging 4-6 minutes per lecture with exceptions for the self-haircut tutorials and the hands-on practice lectures. The program teaches more of the fine tuned details that Alex can't post on social media because getting into the fine details is not as fun and entertaining, which is what generates views and subscribers. Every small detail you could imagine with Alex's 15+ years of experience is part of SHU's exclusive curriculum.
  • What are the biggest differences between Elite and VIP?
    VIP has more frequent & active help than the Elite program as shown with the 1 Weekly Group Coaching Call, 2X Per Month Live Streamed Self-Haircut Tutorials, and two 1v1 Coaching Calls all with Alex Kouras directly. Alex's time is very valuable and he understands some people need that face to face experience aside from pre-recorded lectures. It's just like watching sports on TV. It's not as enjoyable as watching them Live and in-person, feeling the atmosphere of the players and the crowd. Alex gets hundreds of comments, messages, and emails every day and unfortunately, doesn't have the time to respond to all of them. Joining VIP guarantees that you have Alex's undivided time and attention so he can help you with your unique situation and haircutting goals. Alex has well over 115,000 subscribers on YouTube, 50,000 followers on TikTok, and 8,000 followers on Instagram, combining over 15 million views per month in over 160 countries between the 3 social media platforms. He has the social proof to prove he's an expert within this skill set. He's been cutting his hair for over 15 long years. From the ages of 13-28 years old. There's a lot of wisdom he can teach you so you never make the same mistakes he did over the years. Just look at all of his Before & After results on his videos over the past few years. That's what he can teach you and he knows how to cut nearly every haircut and hairstyle under the sun. From buzz cuts, to short haircuts, to low, mid, high fades, to medium haircuts, longer haircuts, to using thinning shears and cutting the length on top with scissors. Alex's wisdom and ability to teach is beyond what is shown on his social media which is the main reason why his time is so valuable and makes VIP very unique compared to Elite. If you find value in his free videos on social media right now, imagine how much more value you'll get by being able to speak to him face to face and have him answer all of your specific haircutting questions. And remember, Elite and VIP are both 1 Year Membership programs. This means you're signing up for an entire year of access to everything Alex knows today and will know in the future, and not to mention, direct access to learn from Alex on Discord, coaching calls, and live streams.
  • 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 are the Weekly Group Coaching Calls and Live Streamed Self-Haircut Tutorials set up in VIP?
    Alex hosts the Group Coaching Calls every Saturday morning. This way, everybody has an opportunity to join the call because most people usually have more free time on weekends than on week days. The Group Coaching Calls run for about 30-60 minutes. The Live Self-Haircut Tutorials are also hosted every other Saturday in the afternoon. Again, on the weekend so as many people as possible can join. The Live Self-Haircut Tutorials run for about 1-2 hours.
  • Barber School vs Self Haircut University
    Barber School Price: $10,000 - $20,000 Time: 6 Months - 2 Years Reason: To cut other people hair as a profession Self Haircut University Price: $99 for Elite or $599 for VIP Time: 1-3 Months Reason: To save my money and give myself unlimited free haircuts for the rest of my life. NOTE: Self Haircut University is not a barber school. We teach you how to cut your own hair for a fraction of the price for your own personal skills and knowledge. If you are here, it's because you want to cut your own hair to save time and money, not become a licensed barber as a paid professional.
  • How does the pricing work?
    Both Elite and VIP are 1 Year Membership programs. Which means you pay once every year to continue your access to the programs which are continuously updated on a regular basis. If you do not wish to pay for more than 1 year, you may cancel your membership using your Teachable account. If you do wish to continue your membership beyond 1 year, your card will automatically be charged at the 1 year mark and you won't lose any of your progress for the lectures you've already watched. Also, there are no upcharges or additional fees throughout your membership.
  • 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 refunds an option?
    Once you enroll in the program, no refunds are offered under any circumstance. Please make sure you are 100% committed.
  • 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's 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.
