Humble Beginnings

In 1959, Leandro Rizzuto and his parents started Conair by selling hair rollers and dryers. To fund the new company, Lee sold his Cadillac, paid off his debt  and jumpstarted the business with the hundred dollars he had left in his pocket. 

The Conair corporation soon began to breathe with new life, growth and innovation,  creating tools for women that would enable them to achieve salon results in their  own homes. One of these was a revolutionary, and now iconic pistol-shaped hair dryer. Customers could finally do the perfect “do” themselves and as a result, Conair reshaped the haircare industry. 

But this passionate, young company was just getting warmed up. We improved on our  popular creations and pushed even further ahead. We expanded into personal care, health  and beauty, grooming tools, cookware and kitchen electrics. By the 1990s, most American households owned at least one of our products. With a contemporary design focus,  Conair quickly grew into one of the  largest consumer product manufacturers in the world.

A Mission to Make Life Easier

We didn’t invent style, but over the years we’ve been in front of millions 
of mirrors helping people invent their own. We believe that “beautiful” is  more 
about the way people feel, when they feel look their very best. So we create tools 
that help them cultivate their confidence. Allowing anyone to express themself each day, 
in ways uniquely their own. We craft personal care and home-use product solutions 
that do simplify customers’ lives and don’t complicate their budgets.  

It’s our mission and our pleasure to contribute to a better, more rewarding life— 
whatever life people choose to live. We celebrate beautiful thinking and love for self. 
We will constantly evolve and create at-home and on-the-go products while taking advantage of emerging technology. We are fortunate to serve both home consumers and professionals. We’re proud to be a brand generations of people all over the world trust and admire—embodying the premium quality, reliability and durability they have come to expect for over 
60 years. These and many others are the reasons we’ve become a $2+ billion company 
with more than twenty-five brand names in one-hundred and twenty countries 
across six continents. 

Today, it is our goal to see our products in every household. And, as always, we will 
work to create exciting and useful innovations that promote personal joy.
