Sam Villa, Redken Education Artistic Director and in-demand Platform Artist, knows the pressure of working in a fast-paced, high-stress environment. Stylists like Sam rely on tools with quality design and performance so they can create the fabulous ‘dos seen at shows, on the runway and in magazines, and that’s why he developed Sam Villa Signature Series Combs.
Villa drew on his 30 years of experience to create this line of exceptional combs made with silicone and graphite compound and carbon fiber for added strength and heat resistance. They are great for backstage and session work because they can withstand heat up to 410 degrees and can be used with curling and flat irons. They are also precision molded so there are no parting lines on the teeth, which allows the comb to slide through hair without any snagging or dragging. Styles include: long tail, small cutting, large cutting and large styling.
His high-performance, high-style combs debuted at New York Fashion Week, where any style less then perfect just doesn’t cut it on the runway. The Redken team used Villa’s Signature Series Combs backstage to create perfect parts at the Abaete show; fashion smooth, sleek hair at Gottex; and generate natural voluminous styles at Tory Burch. The right comb can be critical to the success of a style, and these combs more than did the trick at Fashion Week.
Tip: “Go for maximum visual contrast between the comb and hair to increase visibility – use black combs on lighter hair and ivory combs on darker hair.” – Sam Villa
