Candice Gray - Luv Victoria Hair Salon

Candice

Candice Gray

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.

Ocean - Receptionist

Ocean is Luv’s receptionist & front end manager. She is quieter than the rest of the team, but full of personality. When at Luv, Ocean is your go-to girl for any questions, concerns and anything else you may need! (She also loves talking about your pets).

Natasha - Stylist

Tasha's love for hair started long before going to hair school in 2006. Since she was young, Tasha loved all things in the beauty industry which inspired her to pursue a career in it. 

Her favourite part about being a hairstylist is the constant learning and creative expression. Being able to make people feel great about their hair is a reward. 

Outside of the salon, Tasha is a mom, yogi and avid reader.
