OWNER & STYLIST
In his early 20s, Mark knew that the beauty industry was his career path. Following his move from New Jersey to Atlanta, he opened his first salon. During visits to Houston in the mid-80s, he fell in love with Houston and, in particular, with The Heights. Due to the fact that many of his clients in Atlanta were dependent upon him for their hair needs, he made the decision to keep his salon open and, for the next 12 years, alternated work between Houston and Atlanta.
Mark then determined that The Heights was his permanent home and in 2006, he opened the Salon in The Heights at 1438 Yale Street. Mark's warm and caring personality is felt, not only within the salon, but by each client who passes through the door. He strives to offer his clients the best in all aspects of hair care, and throughout the year attends hair shows and classes in order to learn of any and all new techniques.
Mark is also very active in community matters which benefits The Heights and people from the Houston area. Mark's personality is also characterized by an exuberance appreciated by his clients and as shown in the bright purple and yellow exterior of the Salon in The Heights.
Parrish moved to Houston in August 2011 and began working at Salon in the Heights December of the same year. He loves Houston and The Heights!
