Esteemed Canadian educator Martin Parsons will be coming to Australia in October as part of a long hair education tour. As a Marquee Presenter and Academy Owner, Parsons has taught classes to tens of thousands of stylists in North America, Asia, Europe and Africa, in styles that look detailed and complex, but with engaging and instructive courses that make these techniques simple.
Parsons has long been a partner of INSTYLE and Styleicons, as a Celebrity stylist on online education website Styleicons Education. More than thirty of Parsons’ classes are available to pay to view and his books are available to purchase. See more here.

Parsons has been listed in Modern Salon’s Top 75 Educators of the past century, and was awarded in 2008 with a NAHA’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He has won acclaim for his Design Techniques cutting system, and is renowned for his knotting, folding and lacing skills that make his styling both innovative and unique.
Parsons education regime has become a integral part of America’s beauty schooling system. His Education DVD is included in Cosmetology schooling curriculums in the US and his Design Techniques program has been implemented into the Basic School arena. His editorial “HairDreams” book is in its second printing, while his second book, “Long Hair Secrets” provides the background and step-by-step instruction in achieving some of his most famous styles.
Parsons offers a range of classes to suit any stylist, from Cutting Workshops, to Hands on Seminars, Long Hair Workshops, large-scale Stage Presentations and In-Salon Packages. His Australian tour will expand on his aptitude for long hair, with two Sydney Workshops, the first from the 31st of October to the 1st of November and the second from the 1st to the 2nd of November. A Long Hair Sydney Show will take place on October 28th. These classes will focus on techniques for hair of multiple lengths, volumes and textures, and will deal with pinning and up styles, time efficiency, marketing and finishing the hair with gloss and shine. Parsons illustrates his points with dynamic demonstrations, and then asks the class to workshop these techniques themselves.
Parsons’ Ingenue Waves look
Parsons love of the industry is innate. “I’ve always been interested in hair,” he shared. “My business partner is my younger brother Kent. When my mother was pregnant with him we were at the cottage and she couldn’t get the rollers in her hair, so she asked me to do it. I had never thought of it before, and I was hooked immediately on the idea.”
Since then, Parsons has been decorated with every accolade in the profession. The Australian hairdressing industry will be privileged to become the latest benefactors of a revered career.
