Staff Bio's

William Sturtevant | By Design men's salon | Guys hair style


William has devoted over 32 years to sales, customer service and setting high standards in all facets of his professional development and is proud to be a part of the Kenmore, Bothell, Woodinville, and greater Northshore business community for the past 9 years.

​The past sixteen years have been about mastering the art of hair and the client experience. Combining the drive and devotion to raise the bar in everything he does, William continues to stay in step with current techniques and trends. Skilled at fades, pompadours of all lengths, mid and long length styles, exotic razor cuts and loves to work with curly hair and the truly unruly "chia pet" hair types. Certified in 5 color lines to achieve almost any look. 


Cullen is a versatile barber driven by a pursuit of excellence in craftsmanship. Originally a musician from Philadelphia, PA, he relocated to Seattle a decade ago to broaden his creative horizons. During his time in the Pacific Northwest, he has performed at renowned music venues and recorded in iconic studios. Beyond music, Cullen has diverse interests including barbering, vintage clothing and antiques sales, interior design, fusion glass crafting, and event planning. In each endeavor, he applies his keen artistic vision and relentless quest for knowledge.

Five years ago, Cullen embarked on his barbering journey. One pandemic and a few years of pursuing other things, he is back to honing his skills with a commitment that began with his first pompadour styling. In his off time he continues to create music, collect rare antiques, and pursue his passions, synthesizing lessons from various disciplines. For Cullen, the pursuit of quality and authenticity guides his path to excellence in all endeavors.

Cullen will be focusing on new techniques, standards and timing as he gets started at By Design men's salon. His current service durations are slightly longer to allow for a number of factors, such as consultation, instruction and review of your service. In lieu of your time and the understanding that Cullen is gaining invaluable knowledge, we are offering a full service at a generous discount. The owner and stylist, William, will review each service to ensure the standards are met. Please note, if you would like to make a large change, i.e.: cutting off more than 3 inches of hair, follow the guidelines outlined on the Q&A-Terms of service page.

Q & A

Q & A-Terms of service

Q: Do you take walk-ins? If not how do I make an appointment?

A: We would gladly take walk-ins if the schedule is open. But it is highly recommended to schedule an appointment. ALL appointments are scheduled via the booking tool on this web site

A: You may send a text message to 206-678-8256 or email
Please refer to our cancelation policy in your confirmation notice for further details.

Q: Its been awhile since I've had a cut, I am making a big change, I have a ton of hair, I have crazy curly, hair that sticks out in all directions or a special occasion, should I mention this?

A: YES!!! It would be advisable to schedule the "complimentary consultation" after which we can schedule your service with the appropriate timing needed. If you choose to schedule without a consult, be sure to make note in the "comment field" of what we are working with and goals. If you choose not to have a consult and your needs will take longer then a normal service, the service may be adapted or you will be required to rescheduled. Also extra charges may apply for any extra time, or complexity, the consultation will cover this and the more in depth consultations "never" take place the same day as a service.

Q: What happens if I cancel last minute or miss my appointment without any contact?

A: A $25 fee may be added to a client's next service visit if they have a 2nd missed/last minute cancelations, full charge for a third occurrence. A $50 fee may be charged for any combo for coloring and haircut service missed, first time. If there is a fourth, a client may be asked not to return or prepaying will be required.

Q: Will I get a confirmation when I schedule, or a reminder?

A: We do not engage in email marketing, the only emails you will receive are for confirming the appointments made for you, cancelations and a reminder  24hrs prior to your service. 99% of ALL communication is done via text or email.

Q: Its more then 24hrs till my appointment and I need to change or cancel it, how?

A: You may text 206-678-8256 or email that you would like to change or cancel it. At this point you can go back to the booking tool and schedule a new appointment or if we have an option that works for you, change it. As a website member "you" can change your schedule 24hrs prior to.

Q: I've been seeing one stylist and would like to see a different one at By Design, is that ok?

A: Absolutely! There are a couple things to consider, one is each persons tenure and experience in their craft. Another consideration is the knowledge one service provider has over another about your personal preferences for your haircut and style. New Barbers or Stylist DO NOT have access to another established service providers personal notes on your preferences. It is imperative they learn and develop their own knowledge base when working with clients and have the freedom to have their individual approach to cutting and styling hair.

Q: Why am I being asked for a $25 scheduling fee?

A: Simply put, it is meant to reduce/eliminate "no show" appointments. 100% of this fee is applied towards the service total at check out. If a person does not give 24-hour notice of cancellation(no show), it will be forfeited. Less than 24-hour "with" notice of cancelation the deposit will be held till the next visit and applied towards the service total at check out or 30 days then forfeited. No show or contacting after the scheduled time will be forfeited. This deposit only occurs on the first appointment and those scheduled 30 or more days out.

Q: Why are there different prices for services?

A: Each stylist/barber has varying years of tenure and each has surpassed different industry benchmarks to achieve their price point. 

Q: I am running late and want to let someone know, how do I?

A: Clients may send a message via their texting app to 206-678-8256
Please refer to our late arrival guidelines below for further details.

Q: What form of payment do you accept?

A: We are 100% digital, so no paper receipts and no paper money or coin is kept on premise. We will accept currency but do NOT have change on hand. We accept debit/credit cards and mobile wallet connected to a primary bank or credit card account.

Q: What do you do with my information and do you have a privacy policy?

A: Yes. Click on the Word document

Q: What does being a site member do for me?

A: Being a site member allows you to view, track, make and change(up to 24hrs. before) appointments as well you can view your purchase history. Being a “site (Website) member” does not infer inclusion to our “membership packages” for services program.

General arrival guidelines:

We maintain a tight schedule and we do our very best to stay on time and respect your time. If a service provider thinks they will be more then 10 minutes late getting to you we'll send a notice ASAP! Our focus is always with the client in the chair and we appreciate your understanding.

Conversely one of the main reasons we may get behind is a client arriving late. For this reason we have a 10 minute grace period for services of 45-60 minutes, 5 minutes for 30 minutes and none for services of 15 minutes. Services for late arrivals may be modified or rescheduled.

B y scheduling an appointment you are acknowledging that you have read and understand the terms of service as noted.
