We’re not just a salon, it’s an experience.
Somewhere along the way, salons got serious, stuffy, and impossibly snooty. Most places make you feel like you need to have a perfect haircut before you can get a perfect haircut. And really, that’s not what having hair is all about.
OWNER / LEAD STYLIST
Vancouver-born Josh Taylor started his training at The London School of Hairdressing in 1996 before finishing with Suki’s Academy in 1997. After relocating to Calgary the following year, Josh worked at a variety of salons, where he developed two of his key talents – consistency and speed.
Salon owners frequently asked him to waste time and slow down so customers would be more willing to pay outrageous prices. This never sat right with Josh, so he carved out his own space (and pace) at Lushus Concepts for 13 years, which allowed him to deliver speedy accuracy for reasonable prices. During this time he graced the cover of Swerve Magazine as one of Calgary’s top stylists (2005), won third place for colour at the national LA Biosthetics Awards, and most recently, became a product ambassador for EVO Hair. This was also where Josh established the comfortable, laid-back and completely unpretentious environment he’s now known for.
Like every part of life, Josh believes that cutting hair, and getting your hair cut, should be fun, easy and rewarding. This belief eventually lead him to bring his 20 years of style to life by opening Notorious in 2016. Josh is a family man, a true professional, and a guy who’s always got time for a good time. He’s a people person, and as a testimony to his knack for building long-term clientele, Josh’s very first Calgary “regular” from 1998 is the author of this bio.
