Senior Stylist
Coming from a family with many relatives in Cosmetology, I got to experience the beauty industry from a very young age and graduated from John Casablanca Institute in summer 2015. I am very creative and I love to be able to channel my creativity into my work as a hairstylist and always keep up to date with the latest trends. I love doing short modern cuts as well as elaborate up-dos. I am an aspiring colour specialist as I love to challenge myself and be the best I can be. I am ecstatic that I get to start my career here at LUV Hair Salon, hope to see you soon!

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 LYV Hair Salon, and the creativity coming from all the stylists here. I say bring on all the challenges and learning that LUV can offer!

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!

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.
