Raised in west London, David Wadlow is a fashion industry maverick. His natural talent and flair took him from cutting hair at a young age to earn extra pocket money, to discovering a new found skill and passion. At the age of 16, David left school to complete a salon hairdressing apprenticeship where he honed his technique and discovered session work. He spent the next five years assisting leading hair stylists Guido Palau and Didier Malige and was first assistant to Anthony Turner.

David has collaborated on looks with designers Rejina Pyo, Michael Kors, Pringle, Belstaff, Steven Tai, and Kit Neale and worked with style icons Kate Moss, Lara Stone, Daphne Guinness, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Solange Knowles. He has also worked with notable actors Viola Davis, Noomi Rapace, Sophie Turner, and Gwendoline Christie.

His editorial work has been featured in publications including ELLE Brazil, Dazed and Confused, i-D, Interview Magazine, Vogue (British, US, Italian, Brazilian), GQ, Vanity Fair (Italian), Teen Vogue, W Magazine, Wylde and Wonderland.

David has worked with renowned photographers including Ellen Von Unwerth, Annemarieke Van Drimmelen, Simon Emmett, Bella Howard, Iakovos Kalaitzakis, Jason Hetherington, Jon Gorrigan, Tomo Brejc, Zoltan Tombor and Adam Whitehead.
