Summit Salon Business Center
Summit Salon Business Center (SSBC) is the world’s largest salon seminar, training, and consulting company.
Utilizing the Summit Salon Systems in our curriculum means that when our students leave – they have the foundational knowledge of how to earn a beautiful living if they choose to. These systems also impact our culture by fostering an environment of support and encouragement vs competition. Our students come together monthly to celebrate the top business leaders in each program.
Summit Salon Academy Tampa’s student kit includes Sam Villa’s professional ionic blow dryer, the sleekr professional straightening iron, and a myriad of his brushes and combs.
Motivating, creative, passionate, energetic, inspiring… these are just a few thoughts that come to mind at the mention of Sam Villa’s name.
