I have Fusion but I would assume Parallels would be just as easy to install. There are two ways to install Fusion/Parallels. You can install Windows through Boot Camp first and then install Parallels this way you will have both a Boot Camp install of Windows and a Parallels version.

If you know that you will never need to natively boot into Windows then you can just install Windows with Parallels and ignore Boot Camp altogether. I don't know if you can later install Windows through Boot Camp without having Windows thinking you have two installed versions which requires you to have two product registration keys. When you install Windows through Boot Camp first Fusion uses your Boot Camp install. I would assume Parallels does the same thing.

I installed Windows through Boot Camp first but it should also be easy doing it the other way around.
