Traditionally, flat irons are used for straightening, but Sam Villa, founding partner of the Sam Villa® brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue, is anything but traditional.
Villa loves oversized multi-textured looks and uses his flat iron, the Sam Villa Signature Series SLEEKR™ flat iron, in unconventional ways to create this fresh texture.
Remember the pin curl? Well, Villa has a modern version he creates in minutes. It’s a coiled set compressed with the iron, resulting in a flatter curl than a traditional pin curl.
