Martin Parsons

The Man, The Artist, The Educator

Martin is a proud Canadian who has travelled the world from North America to South America, Asia to Australia and throughout Europe and Africa delighting audiences with his special brand of insightful techniques, creative style and a sense of humour that all stylists can relate too!

Martin developed “Design Techniques for Cutting” early in his career that allows hair stylists to produce consistently suitable haircuts through balance, proportion and facial shapes of their clients.  Constantly copied but never duplicated, this system has helped tens of thousands of stylists achieve their own sense of style and fashion.

Long regarded as the Master of Long Hair Styling, Martin achieves beautiful styles with a variety of lengths in just minutes.  His knotting, folding and lacing techniques revolutionized how stylists create hair designs for special occasion!

Among his many professional accolades, Martin was listed among the elite in Modern Salon’s Top 75 Educators for the past century as well as one of the 50 Most Influential Hairdressers of all time.  He was the recipient of the First Lifetime Achievement Award in the Canadian Hairdressing Industry and followed that with NAHA Lifetime Achievement Award for recognition as a leader in advanced education and for his highly entertaining and educational stage performances.

Martin Parsons, always entertaining, always insightful and always educational!
