Aquarius Hair Salon was established in 1974, the brainchild of tailor Horace And Cislin Parry(nee Coleman). Having set up a dress shop in Middle Lane, Hornsey, North London, Mrs Parry began to supplement their income by dressing hair in a back room- a skill she had developed in her Finsbury Park attic. 

The income from hairdressing began to overtake the dress shop income and so the decision was made to launch the first Aquarius salon.




Mr Parry (Denzil to his friends) soon developed the skills to complement his wife's hairdressing skill by becoming one of the most popular barbers in the area. The small shop soon became too popular for the premises and so in 1980 the salon moved to its present site in Finsbury Park.
A family affair, the couples three children soon learned the trade of their parents and spent long hours in the salon perfecting the skills their parents passed onto them. Yvonne, focusing on beauty, Sharon and Horace Junior concentration on the hairdressing side. 

The eighties and the early nineties saw the business expand to serve not only the local community but far further afield with customers coming as far away as Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and Paris. Many a celebrity has passed through the salon and it still maintains a presence in the community in the face of stiff competition. 

The salon maintains the ethos developed by Mr and Mrs Parry- 'Caring for You and your Hair' - as the third generation of Parrys make the initial moves towards carrying the business well into the 21st century.
