Will is the man behind the name. Beginning his career in 2010 at Nicky Clarke in Leeds and spending time at Mary Ann Weeks in Guildford where he developed a love for Aveda, Will is truly passionate about all things hair. Realising the north is where it’s at, he moved back from Guildford in 2015 to open William David Hair and since then the business has developed more than he could ever have imagined. He is excited to move to a bigger space and potentially expand even further in the future. In his spare time you’ll spot him with a craft beer in hand hanging out by the BBQ (when the British weather allows).
Our Senior Stylist Mel started out with a career in management but soon discovered a love for the hair industry and now has over 12 years of experience. After owning her own Aveda salon for 7 years Mel joined the William David crew and now conducts all colour training with junior members of the team. With the skills for big colours and a willingness to guide unsure clients into a total transformation, she’s a vital member of the team. When she’s not putting in the hours at WD you’ll find Mel up and down the country taking her daughters Alexia and Willow to high level dance competitions or in a beer garden somewhere sunny.

Our vision is to create a harmonious salon environment, which supplies our clients with a complete and personal hairdressing service.
We believe that hair perfection is different for every individual and that attaining it should not be a daily struggle. We aim never to mass produce a style but always precisely tailor a complete look, considering the clients unique characteristics and individual requirements when creating their cut and colour.
We aim to cut a style that stays in the hair, making it effortlessly achievable when they leave the salon. The result is a perfect harmony of hair design - cut and colour seamlessly working together to create a look that emphasises our clients best features and achieves a personalised look to suit their lifestyle and complement their individuality.
