Alice

Junior Colourist

“At Butchers we share the work and keep each other balanced. I’ve never worked in a team before that is so conscious and caring towards each other’s mental health, motivations, and inspirations. The feeling of community filters right the way down to how the assistants treat each other.”

Butchers has such an eclectic mix of people – it’s a great salon to work for and train with and I’m not sure I’d find the same culture anywhere else!”

Jue Jue

Black Belt Colourist / Stylist

Having been working his magic in hair for over a decade and at Butchers since the beginning, Jue Jue loves the subtleties of both colour and cut – a hidden flash panel of colour popping through, or super sexy sunkissed highlights, to create an even fancier version of oneself. His forte is creating texture without changing the actual structure of the hair. At Butchers, his focus has definitely shifted towards dramatic colour changes and corrections which he feels are just as fun and even more rewarding once clients see the final result. In his spare time, Jue Jue has a great interest in art and culture, drawing inspiration from various art forms – especially Japanese culture and Tokyo street styles and fashion.

Lisa

Master Colourist / Stylist

Lisa’s our Wonder from Down Under; an award-winning whirlwind of hairdressing know-how. Whilst she’s spent time teaching her scissoring skills, she’s happiest when colouring up a storm in a busy salon, where the hairdryers and the chat are both turned up to 11. And where you find Lisa, you won’t find Bruce far behind – her French bulldog is as much a part of the Butchers team as anyone. Whilst Lisa lives life in the fast lane, Bruce takes a much more chill approach to life – you’ll generally find him snoring on the sofa…
