Xhanan Villa (Xhana)
Je T’aime Coiffure Salon Owner/ Hair Designer/ L'OREAL PROFESSIONNEL ARTIST/ Educator
The world of beauty has and will continue to light a fire in Xhana’s heart. Xhana has been lucky enough to travel around and out of the country to further her education in the beauty industry along with furthering the education of stylists like herself who have the motivation and drive to make people love their hair. As a young adult living in a country that was in the midst of a war all while pursuing a medical career for the safety of herself and her husband, Xhana was forced to abandon her dream of becoming a doctor and relocate to the United States. She and her husband made their way to America with no promised future where she decided to enroll in beauty school. She found hope and a new dream to pursue. That day she made a promise to herself that if this was the path she was choosing, she was going to do everything in her power to continually further her knowledge and enhance her skills to be the best hair expert she could be. Fast forward 22 years later and she continues pushing herself to be skilled in this industry. From being a stylist assistant in New York City to being the co-founder of Je T’aime Coffuire and becoming a part of the L’Oreal Professionnel family, nothing is more satisfying for Xhana then pursuing her dream.
