Candice Gray

American Board Certified Haircolorist

Candice is the Owner and Master Colorist of Elite Body Essentials, working in both the Greene and Farmingdale locations. She attained her state Cosmetology license in 2011, then furthered her education at the Haircolor Academy in 2014, located in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Joining only seven others in the entire state, Candice acquired her Board Certification this year from the American Board of Certified Hair Colorists, the largest nationally recognized hair color exam. Though her favored services are balayage and natural hair coloring, Candice specializes in hard-to-fix cases. She enjoys the complexity of each individual situation; whether it be resistant grey hair, fading issues, at-home color repair, or a texture problem, Candice strives to give you exquisite hair every time.

She graduated locally in 2013 with her Cosmetology degree before graduating from the Hair Color Academy this year! Cynthia has also taken classes over the years in texture preservation and maintenance, focusing her efforts on curly hair and maintaining a frizz-free lifestyle. Her love for cutting is rivaled only by her exquisite skills in blonding and lighter hair color tones. Cynthia is available at our Greene location.
