“It was time for a change from long hair to a shorter cut. My friend recommended I go to David Michael of London here in White Rock, and I did. 

David sat down with me and made great suggestions based on my needs and lifestyle. Now I have a style that I can wash and wear with my natural curls or blow dry for a totally different look. I LOVE my new cut! Thanks David. “


“Thank you David for the fantastic hair cut & awesome experience. You & Sharon make a great team!”

Jude Barkley

“David has been my stylist for over 4 years now.  I am ever so grateful to him as he has been the only stylist who has been able to allow me to grow out my pixie cut to a great bob without the pain of bad hair along the way.  I am so glad he has his own salon now as the atmosphere is friendly, fun, and he serves a great cup of real English tea.  He takes the time to consult with you at each appointment and provides realistic suggestions for styles that work with your type of hair.  I trust him so fully now that I just tell him to do what he wants.  I have never been disappointed with the results from David.  He also is a wizard with color and hi-lights.  I highly recommend a visit to David Michaels.  You have to experience it for yourself.”

Sheila Smith

“Dear David, Just thought I’d let you know everyone thought my new hair ‘do’ was fantastic and took years of my age (need that!).
Thank you so much for all your help and advice.  I’ll try and keep up the good work.

Regards to your family.   See you next time I’m over in Canada.
Many thanks again.”

Meet Our Team

David Gadeke


In 2007 my wife and I came to Canada looking for a better life for our young son Harry. White Rock was one of our first visited towns and quickly became our chosen home, no need to tell you why!

I have been a working hairdresser since 1986, 10 years of this was spent running my own salon in London before coming to Canada. Prior my own salon I ran my parents salon for 5 years and before this I worked my way around London’s busy West End. Being privileged to have 2 parents that worked as young stylist in London during the Swinging Sixties I gained skills often overlooked in today’s modern fastrack training methods. It was with these skills and the knowledge picked up working alongside some of the greatest names in the industry that took me to the stage in London’s Wembley Arena for the 1994 Hair Olympics. I had a brief spell at leading a young team of up and coming hairdressers into the world the runway/catwalk hairstyling. The demands this type of hairdressing puts on a person I chose to leave it behind and concentrate on opening my own salon and starting a family.

My areas of expertise are most aspects of hairdressing as I was also a licensed educator for the government in the UK passing out young stylist with their trade certificates. If asked to pick my favourites I would have to say that creative colouring and cutting are my true passion.
