Behind Barber Al’s Hair-cutting Expertise and Fame

It takes a lot to be called a grooming wizard by GQ magazine itself, but Ali Alhasemi, CEO of multiple barbershop locations, has that honor. Why exactly has Ali received this praise and the near 100,000 followers that he has on Instagram? The answer is simple. He has transcended his work as a barber and became an inspiring icon to his community, providing quality service, and showing passion in the work that he does.

Fondly called Barber Al, Ali has gained the support of a lot of locals who have recommended his service to countless others and claimed that if you are not choosing Ali’s barbershop, you are doing it wrong. 

A celebrity barber and owner of Uppercutz Barbershop, Ali cuts hair for Sada Baby, Jerome Bettis, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and is the only barber to cut the entire Detroit Lions National Football League team. He is currently employing over forty people and also owns his successful line of organic hair care products that include shampoo, body wash, hair gel, hair pomade, and condition both for men and women. 

GQ magazine has featured a rich story behind his work. Through it, we get a glimpse of his humble beginnings (he started cutting hair for $5 in his garage when he was just fourteen years old and upon the advice of his dad who saw Ali cutting his own hair because he was not satisfied with the work of the local barbers) and the heartwarming job he is doing in boosting the confidence of the customers who come to him for help. For Ali, it is not just about cutting hair. He emphasizes the importance of providing his clients with an opportunity to look the best they have ever looked. With expertise and creativity, he styles his customers’ hair in ways that could build up their self-esteem. Quite notably, Ali is known for his work with people who are losing their hair, including those whose thinning hair is a result of chemotherapy. 

Being an entrepreneur with multiple businesses has not robbed Ali of his humility and generosity. Ali and his team conduct numerous annual charities, from neighborhood free haircuts, haircuts at homeless shelters, to Christmas events. His service cannot be perceived as merely that of a haircut. It is a reminder to people that they are not alone during important times. His service is a testament to his long-held belief that his most significant accomplishment will not be the money he earns but the difference he will make in the world. 

Ali also uses his platform to encourage people. Communicating extensively with his customers, he provides haircut tutorials, tips, and life encouragements. His profile also showcases all the cuts he has done for various people, guaranteeing quality work to anyone who wants to check out what he has to offer. He even made a book to sum up his story and life techniques, “The Barber Al Story”. And if you are in the lookout for trends, he also consistently posts the newest hairstyles. 

Ali deserves his fame. He knows what it means to inspire people through the work that you do. Not to mention that the service he offers is of extreme quality too.
