Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 9.23.03 AMInspiring, creative and passionate are just a few of the words used to describe Sam Villa. Over the past 30 years, the man who grew up in his father’s barbershop and graduated from Ponce Beauty School in San Mateo, CA, has seen his star rise to levels he probably never would have imagined. Here, the international hair superstar gives us a look inside his beautiful world…

Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 9.22.10 AMWhat was your aha moment, when you decided you wanted to be in beauty?
My father took me to see Vidal Sassoon, Christopher Brooker and Roger Thompson in 1976, to see my very first hair show in San Francisco. That was when I decided to become a teacher. Sassoon revolutionized the industry with a pair of scissors and demonstrated courage, disciple and inspiration in everything he did.

Where do you see hair trends going for 2014?
You’re going to see hair a little bit more polished, a little bit more done and not so undone. If you see it undone, it’s going to have a sense of quality to it so it’s not so much just getting out of bed and little it happen. You’ll see a natural movement…a hippie couture.

Screen shot 2013-09-10 at 9.24.07 AMWho are the celebrities you feel influence style today?
Taylor Swift. I love Taylor Swift because she’s always doing something different with her hair, whether it’s up, waved or a fringe. Jennifer Lopez is always great—the glamourous one.

What should every woman know before she goes into her salon?
Communication builds wealth. It’s our professional responsibility to tell women what they should be using. If they are using the wrong product, something like color could fade quickly. I always tell a client if they are looking for a hairdresser, if they see a cut, go up to the person and ask, “Where did you get your hair done, who did it?”
