SAM VILLA Educator


Andrew Carruthers presented his Modern Foundations class in Federico’s advanced training room on February 16th and 17th. As the Education director for Sam Villa and co-owner of Lunatic Fringe, Andrew spends much of his time traveling and presenting to many of the industry’s top professionals.

Students, Alumni and local salon professionals were introduced to his technique of conjoining foundational techniques with fashion trends. “I love to take tiny sections and create flawless graduation. I also love taking the entire top of the head, compressing it into one section, and taking a razor to it.” Andrew believes that there is more than one way to skin a cat, “One of my biggest pet peeves is when we are told this is the right way to do something, because in the end there are many ways to get an end result.” Students appreciated the intimate atmosphere which left time for plenty of hands on education.
