For other characters in the Fallout universe named John, see John.

John is a hair stylist and barber who resides in the Diamond City market along with his mother, Cathy, in 2287.


John lives and works with his mother Cathy at their Super Salon in the Diamond City market. Although he's just as fearful as anyone in Diamond City about the threat of the Institute,[1] he's willing to shut down his mother's paranoia about Geneva being a synth since he's cut her hair.[2] Although it doesn't seem like the arguments between John and his mother ever do stop.[3] His father, who is either dead or no longer living with them, was also a hair stylist before John.[4]

  2. John's dialogue: "The mayor's secretary? Come on, ma, I cut her hair myself, and I know human hair."
  3. John's dialogue: "What? Sorry. Thanks to ma's yelling, I'm practically deaf in this ear."
