Hairstylists, and other salon professionals, face a range of challenges that can impact both their bodies and minds on a daily basis. Global research shows that four out of five hairdressers experience work-related skin irritations on their hands. Yet their hands are their most important and precious professional tools. Being on their feet, servicing clients all day, every day, also takes a toll.
Linda Gillette Parodi, a trained hairstylist herself, knows what long hours, a stressful environment, and exposure to water, chemicals, heat from thermal tools can do to a working stylist. Yet they do it with a smile, because choosing a beauty career is more than just getting a job; it’s a passion and a lifestyle chosen for the ultimate reward of a happy client.
“I firmly believe that every hairdresser deserves to feel great every day, all day long,” said Gillette Parodi, on the launch of her new line of care products for salon professionals, which will be available through selected distributors nationwide in June 2015.
The PARODI care products are developed specifically with salon professionals in mind. Yet many salon clients experiencing similar skincare obstacles can also benefit. From medical professionals to Moms, PARODI products will be available, on the recommendation of salon professionals, for consumers to purchase in the salon.
“We want to meet and exceed salon pros’ needs,” says Gillette Parodi. “And, we know that if a hairdresser finds a product exceptional, it’s natural for her or him to share their professional ‘secret’ with clients. We will rely on the professionals to share with clients – and profit from – our products’ caretaking benefits.”

PARODI Fuses Age-Old Wisdom with Modern Technology
Inspired by the secrets of our grandparents that have been trusted for health and well-being over centuries and for generations, PARODI infuses its hand and foot creams with elements such as:
Spilantes, originating in the topics of Africa and South America, and used as a remedy for toothaches, fighting colds, influenza and other fungal infections;
Nacre, also known as Mother of Pearl, carries a time-honored reputation as an unsurpassed beauty tonic by legendary Oriental beauties. It helps promote lustrous, clear, moist and supple skin, promoting a radiant, youthful complexion;
Hypericum is a wild herb with medicinal properties dating back to the ancient Greeks. Hippocrates described its effectiveness for the treatment of small wounds and inflammation. Its cosmetic and antioxidant properties are widely acclaimed for balancing texture, maintaining essential natural moisture and leaving skin refreshed. Today, we know this ingredient as St. John’s Wort.
These are paired with the latest in scientific developments for skin care to ensure that all PARODI Professional Care products are the finest they can be. PARODI believes that all salon professionals deserve the very best care for their hands and feet, and a little luxury besides.
