TAYLOR OF OLD BOND STREET: An Introduction

Taylor of Old Bond Street was founded in 1854 by Jeremiah Taylor, the great grandfather of today’s Chairman, who opened his Hairdressing and Hair Treatment Salon in Bond Street, London. Having gained a reputation for his hair and scalp treatment, his son, Ivan used his chemist training to develop a range of herbal treatments.

The Taylor Tradition has always been to create luxurious and unusual products with natural ingredients where practicable, refusing to compromise quality.

To this day Taylor of Old Bond Street has remained a family business with Sidney Taylor becoming Chairman in 1930, who pursued the opening of a second branch in Jermyn Street. The current Chairman, Leonard Taylor took the reigns in 1955, joining his father and still carries out the work of formulating and manufacturing hair and skin products to the same high standards.
