In 2019, the Sam Villa team…

Rallies around Live Education as the most important asset to our industry… An asset that must not be lost as our craft depends on the ability to connect with others and to express our knowledge and skillset through our hands.

Hairdressers are faced with both a blessing and a curse as the world of trend becomes a wide-open playing field. Today’s looks can range from structured androgynous lines to super soft and massively textured shapes with “wash and wear” finishes.

No longer just a popular reboot from the past, the shag is a true influencer firmly rooted as a modern movement in every length of hair. Even short hair softens with extended wispy lengths around the perimeter and the air of 70s punk rock begs for even shorter aggressive layers in the crown.

Fringe, bangs, and face frames are the perfect accessory and will be worn in almost every form, whether it’s blunt, shattered, swept, cropped, or chewed.

Hair dressing and finishing allows the wearer to define what is “in trend” as organic texture builds momentum whether created by coaxing out natural movement with product, diffuser, or artificially molding movement with thermal tools. Look for relaxed glamour that finds harmony between grunge and polished glass.

Braids come in every shape and size from flat small plats to the super-voluminous “insta- famous” deconstructions. Ponytails with split personalities marry mirror finishes flowing into a variety of textured designs below the elastic.

Join us in 2019 as we continue to build a healthy community of #ArtistsSupportingArtist , #BrandsSupportingBrands , and an industry of professionals that are respected as the masters of their craft.

Class Descriptions

We believe that every salon is unique. Different owners, different stylists, different clientele, and different local demographics create unique strengths and challenges. To offer the greatest return on your education investment, we custom craft each class to fit the specific needs of your salon.

From foundations to creative, the Sam Villa ArTeam is focused on concepts that can be applied immediately in the salon. We carefully monitor trends, but more importantly we are in tune with what is really happening at the chair as an “everyday” hairdresser.

We also have a wide variety of experience from salon business, photo shoots, and even personal coaching that can be incorporated into the plan of the class, so don’t hesitate to ask if your needs are not listed.

Cancellation Policy

  • If the booking is cancelled 90 days or more before the class date, a full refund will be issued.
  • If the booking is cancelled 89-11 days before the class date, 50% of your payment will be refunded.
  • If cancelled up to 10 days before the class date, the full class fee will be forfeited.
  • If the booking is cancelled by Sam Villa® at any time, 100% of your payment will be refunded.

Artist Support

In effort to uphold the quality and integrity of our classes, we maintain a ratio of 15:1 attendees to educator. If the class has more than 15 attendees, we will bring in a local artist to support the educator.

The fee for the support artist(s) is not included in the class fee. The salon is responsible for the support artist(s) rate, travel, and per diem.

We are sensitive to these extra expenses, so we are always mindful to book a support artist with the lowest performance day rate ($150 – $350) and who is within driving distance to avoid hotel costs.
