A Little History.

The name Taylor Taylor has been a hairdressing institution in Sheffield since 1907.

We are now into our fourth generation of hairdressing and still going strong.

1907

The George Street salon opens. The salon has three floors and was frequently visited by city gents, Sheffield workers and visitors to Sheffield. This was the beginning for generations to come.

1910’s -1940’s

The Grand Hotel

We opened the hairdressing salon in the basement of the Grand Hotel. This was situated right in the heart of Sheffield city centre. The salon was frequently visited by theatre goers and Sheffield people.

The Surrey Street barber shop opens. This salon, which is very active to this day, was visited by city gents, Sheffield workers, and visitors to Sheffield.

The George Street salon was bombed by ‘Mr Hitler’. This was a sad loss, as the site where the business was founded was destroyed.

Our first suburban salon opens. This salon was visited by local people.

The Grand Hotel shut down, and so did the salon. Later on the building was demolished. Our first city centre ladies salon opens. This salon was visited by all the ladies and became the place to be. This salon is running with the same reputation today.
