John Taylor was established in July, 2000 by Lynn Surr, owner and cosmetologist. Lynn has been in the cosmetology business for 34 years. She has worked in many different environments, ranging from department store and privately owned salons, to a single chair salon in her home as her guests held her baby while she was styling their hair, and finally 14 years of owning another local salon.
In 1998 Lynn sought out a more personal environment where clients could come and be spoiled and pampered; a tranquil environment that made beauty, health, and relaxation paramount. “I became curious about the Spa industry because I was reading about it EVERYWHERE. It hadn’t made it to the Quad Cities yet and I thought this area needed one,” Lynn commented, “after all, being a baby-boomer myself, I was looking to use the services that a spa offers!” Lynn became voracious for information. She researched the spa industry for over a year and decided that the people of the Quad Cities deserved the treatment only the bigger cities offered. If no one else was going to open a spa, she had to do it! So, John Taylor was born. A company founded on experience, hard work, and well deserved luxury for all its patrons.
John Taylor is a member of the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce
