Our salon story

Under the leadership of Timothy and David Spangenthal, Timothy John’s Salon NYC, opened in the fall of 2001 with a mission to fill the salon with professional stylists personally trained by Timothy, and who remain enthusiastic and dedicated to continuing their personal growth and education.

Timothy John started his career as an assistant in an intercoiffure salon. Intercoiffure is a world-renowned hairdressing association that trains and practices hairstyling with the highest of standards. After three years of rigorous training and “on the floor” experience, which allowed him to master each technique in hairstyling, Timothy moved on to pursue the dream of opening his own salon.


Timothy John’s Salon-Wisconsin, which included hairstyling, massage and nails, was located in the middle of the business district of downtown Milwaukee and quickly became very successful. For six years, Timothy and his stylists continued training in advanced hair cutting and color techniques through Vidal Sassoon, Toni and Guy, Goldwell, Matrix, and Aveda in classes offered exclusively to stylists with detailed experience.

In 1999, Timothy moved to NYC and worked at a Salon in midtown, where he began building a devoted clientele of business professionals and Broadway performers. Two years later, Timothy left to start his own salon, gathering a team of extremely skilled stylists with whom he could trust to style clients as well as receive his mentorship. Under the leadership of Timothy and David Spangenthal, Timothy John’s Salon NYC, opened in the fall of 2001 with a mission to fill the salon with professional stylists personally trained by Timothy, and who remain enthusiastic and dedicated to continuing their personal growth and education.


Clients at Timothy John’s Salon confidently receive stylish, personalized, up-to-date styles anytime from any stylist.
