"The Bardot" Speaks Volumes - Sam Villa Launches New DVD

Sam Villa

Author Sam Villa | Founding Partner of Sam Villa

Sam Villa’s Aspire Tour continues to sweep the nation bringing “More Sam to More People” with the launch of “The Bardot” – Villa’s fourth educational DVD focusing on creating volume in three simple steps with “The Art of Disconnection.” A natural progression from “The Convertible” (Villa’s second DVD), “The Bardot” offers even more versatility, with longer softer layers and more volume at the crown.  Think vintage sexy glamour revamped with fresh moldable volume. “The Bardot” is retro, yet relevant.  It’s about utilizing traditional techniques to create modern gentle edges with multi-layered disconnection.  Here, Villa shows how to use concealed short and long under-cut layers that work together to create a hidden secret that allows moldable volume to be strong, or soft and seductive. 

“Think of today’s fashion looks that gather fabric into soft, inflated looks like bubble skirts and big ruffles worn with fitted tops or leggings. It’s the same with ‘The Bardot,’ only we’re using hair as the medium to create a versatile design that’s easy to wear -- either smooth and sleek or textured and frothy, depending on the finishing,” explains Villa. “I concentrate on disconnection and provide stylists with interchangeable steps that can really be used on any head of hair. It’s not so much about the actual cut or look on the DVD, it’s about the skills and techniques stylists take away and utilize on a daily basis, giving them more confidence and making them better hairdressers.  With three easy steps, a seasoned stylist can spend less time cutting, and possibly add another client to their day, and novice stylists can learn how to use disconnection to create texture and volume in any style,” he adds. “The Bardot” was shot in reality show format at Salon Oasis of Boca Raton (Florida), with stylists participating in hands-on education in Villa’s “See and Do” format – where he teaches a step and then the stylists do the technique.  This teaching style gives viewers a front row seat to Villa’s education and they can participate from their home or salon.  “The Bardot” also features a special appearance by Colorist, Patrick Fitzwater, a rising star with Redken 5th Avenue.  Fitzwater brings a fresh approach to coloring this modern retro cut. Sam Villa’s digital education is also unique in that stylists have access to the tools he uses on video - they can obtain Sam Villa Signature Series Tools to replicate Villa’s techniques.
