“When we travel to Italy, I am always impressed by how people are styled for any occasion—no matter their age. Hair follows fashion with a soft, sexy, never-contrived look for day and an evening look that is tousled to perfection,” says Parsons. Italian beauty, fashion and lifestyle were her inspiration for this collection.
