Andrew Carruthers - Education Director at Sam Villa

Meet Andrew Carruthers

Andrew Carruthers leads a career that many of our students dream about.  He’s spent 2-decades as a full-time stylist with a huge portfolio of award-winning work.  Andrew now works as the Education Director at Sam Villa —  traveling the country running workshops at elite industry events such as Premier Orlando.  He is a master stylist in every sense of the term.  His teaching style is known for connecting with everyday stylists.

From social media to Google, everything is at your client’s (or future client’s) fingertips.

Good or bad, the result is that stylists find themselves in situations where their clients have these extremely high expectations — set by looks and styles they’ve seen on Instagram, or Pinterest, or Facebook or their personal, digital soup du jour.

With nearly 15,000 followers on Instagram, trust us, Andrew is in a better position than most to talk about the expectations that get set through social media.

Walk away with valuable industry insight and practical tips & techniques.

Andrew will spend time with our JD Academy students, and a limited number of guests, speaking about the art of creating value at the chair.  That will include different approaches for getting clarity out of client visions and having the confidence that you’ll be able to bring those visions to life.  There will be lots of 2-way discussions on various styles that cover everything from long hair to pixies.

In addition to talking about the industry and these high-level approaches to working with clients, Andrew will be walking our students & guests through a more granular series of approachable and practical tips, tricks and techniques to most effectively pull off current trends.
