Conair Corporation began in 1959 as a small hair appliance and hair care company. Today it is one of the largest and most diversified consumer products companies in the world. This global leader in the manufacture and distribution of personal care, grooming, health and beauty products, and premium kitchen electrics, tools, and cookware, is headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut. Conair's passion for innovation and technology continue to produce products that exceed customer expectations.
Revolutionizing An Industry
The pistol-grip hair dryer, which Conair began manufacturing in the mid-1960s, changed the way the world did hair. The company's founder, Lee Rizzuto, personally taught hairdressers how to use this innovative new hair dryer – a brilliant alternative to the standing dryer – to get clients in and out of the salon faster. Conair's iconic Yellowbird, introduced in 1972, remains one of the most respected and recognized blow dryers in the industry. Today the revolution continues, with the company's ongoing commitment to innovation and technology delivering new and better products year after year.
Now Serving The World
Through decades of hard work, the dedication of thousands of employees, strategic diversification and acquisitions, and that constant commitment to producing innovative products, Conair has evolved into a 2+billion dollar global company, selling professional salon products, personal care products, consumer and commercial kitchen appliances, and cookware under more than twenty-five brand names in over one-hundred and twenty countries around the world.
