I spent the last 10 min looking for a specific picture of me and Martin Parsons but I couldn’t find it. This photo reminds me of what I loved about him. Hands down the most consistent artists I have ever seen. NO ONE could do Martin Parsons like Martin Parsons could do.
He gave me the courage to start dressing hair and was always a figure head in our industry that someone like me could look up too. Heaven is gonna have one of the best long hairdressing classes today.
R.I.P. Mr. Parsons
