Candice Gray

Stylist & Owner

 

I started doing hair 13 years ago, when I became an apprentice. My love for hair and people made it an easy start to my career in hairdressing. I apprenticed for two and a half years under an educator and 6 fully booked senior stylists at Esthetica. I graduated through Vancouver Island University (formally Malaspina). The education I received here started me off on my extensive colour background. I started off my hairdressing career at a busy downtown Victoria salon, Bumble and Bumble, where the education and experience I received was the foundation for my future growth. Through this salon I was able to learn from amazing stylists by travelling all over Vancouver Island, Vancouver and also in New York. In this industry it is really easy to get stuck on a few great techniques and forget that styles and fashion are always changing. We refuse to let this happen. The more we learn, the more inspired we become. Education is the key to being great at this craft, it is not only the foundation, but it is the building blocks to become a successful stylists.

Haley

Stylist

 

I started my hair journey in November of 2020. After graduating from the academy of excellence, I immediately started working with Luv Hair Salon. I instantly fell in love with doing blondes and balayage and the transformations that happen with hair lightner. I am always open to tackle something new so I invite colour clients of all hair tones! I’m a pretty soft spoken but I enjoy connecting and getting to know my clients and having the opportunity to give them their dream hair.

Junior Stylist

 

I grew up in Duncan and moved to Victoria about a year and a half ago. I am recently engaged and am getting married this fall. On my days off I enjoy going hiking with my fiancé and my dog Natalie. I have purple hair for my mom who always wanted to go purple but never got the chance to. I’ve always known I wanted to become a hairstylist and when I got the chance to go to hair school on a dual credit, I quickly jumped on the opportunity as fast as I could. I graduated froM hair school in July of 2021. I assisted for a year before I decided to branch out and become a full time stylist and that’s when I found Luv Hair Salon!
