At BaBylissPro they are deeply saddened to learn that Martin Parsons, updo artist, hairdresser and educator extraordinaire, passed away on October 21, 2019. Conair/BaByliss Family Owner and Former Chairman Professional Beauty Association Lee Rizzuto shares his feelings with Estetica:
Martin’s boundless creativity, impeccable style and good nature left an indelible impression on me and everyone who had the good fortune to work with him.
Martin was an esteemed friend and business associate of my family, which founded the Conair/Babyliss Corporation. Martin traveled the globe with our BaByliss team and inspired hairstylists all around the world. He was an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
Beyond his countless achievements in the industry and his contributions to Conair, all those who interacted with him at the company will always remember Martin as a much-loved member of the Conair family. He was as gracious as he was groundbreaking.
Though I and all of Conair mourn his loss, we can truly say that Martin Parsons left the world a more beautiful place.
