Meet the amazing artist Sam Villa, not only a hairartist but also an educator and biggest hair influencer.
Sam Villa caught my attention while I was surfing on the internet searching for a Tool which is called the ‘Sam Villa Texturizing Iron’. The iron which makes you get more grip on the hair to style. Very handy for the Braids..love it.
I didn’t knew that the brand name Sam Villa was an hairstylist who grew up in Mexico and has that ‘barder’thing’ already presence in his vains because his father owned a barbershop.
He fulfilled his dream and went on to win Behind the Chair ‘Favorite Platform Artist and Educator’ at the prestigious Stylist Choice Awards 4 times.

If you watch his educational movies on YouTube he stands out because he has many many years of experience. All of that is so inspiring …makes you wanna get right to work and start hairstyling, braidstyling, cutting hair, blowdrying hair ..just styling styling styling.
