As a Redken Elite salon, we have access to some the industry’s best education. Learning new techniques and staying up to date on cutting edge products is a top priority for all our Signature Stylists. In March, we had the pleasure of hosting one of the top Hair Designers in the business: Sam Villa! Sam has more than 30 years teaching experience and is currently at the top of his game as Redken’s Education Artistic Director. Part of the Redken family for the past 16 years, Sam is in constant demand at international and domestic trade shows and in-salon programs where his progressive teaching approach enables stylists to absorb new techniques quickly and for practical use in the salon. Sam is a lead Facilitator at the Redken Exchange in New York City where he teaches a variety of design and trend sessions to salon professionals from around the world.
We hosted over 30 stylists at our salon for an educational day of new discoveries in trends and techniques. Sam was engaging and full of infectious energy from the moment the class started. He taught our stylists some fabulous simple updos as well as a gorgeous and versatile hair cut. The stylists were encouraged to work together and share with each other what they discovered during the process.
Each of our Signature Stylists walked away from the class with so much inspiration and awesome energy. Sam Villa is a genius, a fantastic teacher, and a genuinely kind and caring person! We are all a little better having met him and are excited to put his tips and tricks into practice.
