Thank you SOOO much Sam for teaching me all the amazing things you taught be today here in Seattle at Elle Marie Hair Studio!! I am so honored to have gotten to meet you and learn from the best, you truly made things easy for me to understand which helped me build confidence in what i do!!
Thank you Sam for being the best tool in my bag! I would not have been able to satisfy my city's need of the Bob's explosive comeback without your hands on class last spring. Thank you.
Sam, this weekend was one of the best education classes I had in a long time. I taught color classes for a company and you blew me away. You're a great teacher and I can't wait to take another! Thanks for the whole Sammy experience.
Sam Villa is amazing and inspiring. He is constantly changing and growing with the times and encourages and challenges all stylists to do the same. He totally rocks…
I am a fan of Sam's work!! He is so inspiring and makes learning skills easy and fun!!
Sam Villa is one of the greatest educators in the business! He gives me great inspiration and ideas to take back to the salon with me, making me feel that I have chosen to be part of the greatest profession around!! Thank You!!
I saw Sam at Fusion in Lexington, KY about 2 years ago. He is the best educator I have ever seen. He holds his audience captive, not hostage. He is very educational yet so alive!
Just attended my first workshop with Sam yesterday. FLOORED!!!! New Direction for me and my clients. Truly an inspiration!!!! Thank You!!!
How lucky are we to have had Sam in our salon today. We enjoyed everything he showed us today, and by the way this was a second request from our staff.
Sam, I wanted you to know how much we as a team of stylists appreciate your talent of being a great educator and for sharing your talents and time with us. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet you at the Oakbrook, IL show and we were impressed with the quality of education presented to us. At the end of the show we all felt that we wanted to see more classes than we could get worked into the weekend. So I have signed up for your tips! I have 9 stylists, all who attended the show, and I want to tell you how it impressed us that we were able to communicate on a personal level and feel comfortable doing so. I hope we have the opportunity to meet again soon. Even after being in the business 44 years, it is always an inspiration and a shot of energy to attend classes of this quality. Sam, I love your spirit and desire to teach. You help so many to succeed! Thank You!
Sam has always been a good educator and motivator and a creative artist. He has been one of my favorites since San Jose days. He is a blessing to our industry. BOBology and The Convertible are AWESOME. Hugs to you Sam and kisses too
I just returned from Calgary AB – where Sam “dazzled” us again! New Energy! The word Inspiring” just doesn’t cut it when trying to express how Sam impacted not only me but all who came to see him. I feel truly blessed for having the opportunity, yet again, to be on the receiving end of Sam’s brilliance. Sam, I love your energy and I am looking forward to sharing with my guests, co-stylists and all artists my experience with you! Thank you Sam!
I am a Redken color specialist and I recently took Sam's class at the Redken Exchange. He got me excited about cutting again!
Sam, I was wowed watching and listening to you at the ABS in Chicago. I thank God for your talent and your willingness to teach what you have. I will very much like you to mentor me.

The last 2 days spent w/you in the salon at Shear Dimensions has made me love to hair again!!! Thanks Soooo much!! You are more inspiring than you will ever know!!!!!!
SAM!!! You rocked ABS 09!!! I loved seeing people sitting 6 deep in the walkway just to see you do your thing!!!
I have been a hairstylist for 35 years. It is a challenge to stay excited about this industry when you are at the top of the class. Sam, you are an INSPIRATION and I thank you for challenging me to get out of the box.
Sam has been one of my mentors for years. I can visualize his concepts and then use my world to create my visions. My confidence through his teachings has resulted in one of the best guest lists anyone could ever imagine. The trust my guests have in me has kept this passion alive for the last 26 years. Thanks, Sam for a wonderful journey.
I have been a working Stylist for over 40 years. Studied around the world and I have never seen a better teacher than Sam Villa.
New favorite haircutThe V, I've been doin this haircut on a lot of clients and they are loving it!! Thanks Sam.
Sam, I already had the wet and dry scissors.I then purchased the tool kit! I am in LOVE with all the Sam Villa Products! Finally, tools made by a stylist who lives behiend the chair, not some guy behiend a desk. I used all the techniques you taught me. Thank you for being so very Awesome!!!!
I have been in this business a very long time. I am blessed in so many ways as a result of being a hair designer. To begin with, the greats in this business were my teachers. I had the privilege to be in one of many of the very first classes with Sassoon when he arrived. Then Paul Mitchell, Zigerelli Brothers, James Mario, Chris Baran, and now you Sam. Because of these great teachers, I am a still highly requested hair designer and earner in this business after fifty years. Thanks Sam for keeping the flam going. It continues to be a privilege to be a hair designer.

A real professional doesn't care about sharing techniques with his peers. That's why I call them "Masters" Thank You Sam!!
Dean Sam, I love you and your education style. Your videos have made me not only work better as a stylist, but to also believe in my own passion about hair! Sincerely, Angie
Sam, Hands down you got my vote this year at the BTC Awards at the American Beauty Show, March 13, 2011 in Chicago as 'Platform Artist and Favorite Educator!' By sharing your your knowledge and artistry you've continued to elevate our profession as an art - no one is more deserving than you!
Sam, i just came back from a 5 hours class that you rocked, it was Amazing, considering that i am an A.D.D. hair designer (like most of us) and you kept me glued to my seat and eager to see whats next, was unbelievable, never experienced this ever in any other class that i took over the last 9 years of my profession. Great tips, all new but made perfect sense. You are great. Loved every minute of this class and your enthusiasm made me love being a hair stylist even more. Thank you Sam. I will be looking forward to purchasing your well studied tools that you created, and to take more classes of your fantastic education.
