Jesse identifies with full-time salon pros, because he’s one too! He believes in education that gives salon pros the unique skill set needed for success. For example, he knows how necessary it is to produce consistent results again and again. “lt’s important to me that hairdressers understand the “why” behind trends and techniques, and thereby gain more control over their hands, their personal vision, and their business,” he says. Linares applies many concepts from his traditional Japanese martial arts training to his education. Just like martial arts, he believes that doing hair takes decades of daily work to truly master. Jesse believes that a hairdresser’s career cannot be measured in profit and loss, but rather in how much of themselves they gave to their work. “Every haircut, every color, every style is a chance to prove what you are made of,” he says. Like the entire Sam Villa team, Jesse approaches education differently. He delivers programs that are upbeat and motivating with an emphasis on personal integrity and skill excellence. “The moment I met Sam Villa, I knew I would one day work with him. He has always represented the working hairdresser through top-shelf education and tools designed with us in mind.”
