Junior Stylist
I came from the small town of Duncan and had to work really hard to get to where I am now. I love this industry. I fell in love with all the smooth, beautiful styles in hair school. Then became an amazing stylist working at JT Flair in Nanaimo, BC. I wouldn't be here in this amazing, talented salon without that experience. I love the talent from LUV Hair Salon, and the creativity coming from all the stylists here. I say bring on all the challenges and learning that LUV can offer!

Elsie
Junior Stylist
I grew up here in Victoria, with many hair dressing relatives, aunts, grandmas, cousins, and my older sister. I found my love of updos at a young age. I was always braiding, curling, and pinning my hair. Once I went to Hair School I quickly found a passion for colour! Highlights, balayages = anything creative! I love the idea of how transformative changing your hair can be! I had never considered myself to be particularly artistic until hair school. But I found a creative side of myself that I hadn't previously known! I worked in a salon in Saanich during and after hair school but found myself in an environment where I wasn't learning & growing. Now I love working at LUV Salon because I'm constantly improving myself and bettering my skills! I can't wait to see what new and exciting adventures this insanely fun career has for me!

Junior Stylist
After growing up in Victoria I adventured to Vancouver to go to one of Canada's #1 beauty schools Blanche MacDonald Center. After graduating with a fierce passion for hair and colour, I returned back home to the island to pursue my hair career! I have spent over four years growing as a professional hair stylist taking pride in continuously investing my time and energy in learning the hottest trends. My favourite part of my job is making people feel beautiful and confident. After all beauty comes from the inside - inside a hair salon :)
Anne
Anne
Junior Stylist
When I was younger, I always found myself being creative in many ways. I have countless hobbies and interests. At the age of 13, my family and I moved to a small town in Northern, BC. The high school that I was attending offered a cosmetology program. That's when I fell in love with hairdressing. Then I moved to Victoria for advanced training. I was working at a franchise salon where I stayed for 2 years while finishing my course. After being there for 2 years I decided to move to get my clientele going. I started working at Anne's Hair Design and Esthetic's where I began to do more colour and also learned how to apply hair extensions. Now I'm ready to take the next step of my career with LUV Salon!

Candice Gray
The Boss
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.
