Blue Tit London Announce New Afro and Textured Hair Educator and Specialist

by eleanor / last updated January 21, 2021

Salon group Blue Tit has announced Sharley Butcher as its Afro and textured hair educator and specialist.

With 15 years in the hair industry, Sharley Butcher will be joining the growing Blue Tit team to implement the training of afro and mixed textured hair into the salon collectives’ training education programme.

Sharley will be leading on the education programme to train all 120 members of Blue Tit’s team, as well as bringing compulsory modules around Afro and textured hair into Blue Tit’s Academy.

Sharley Butcher joined the Blue Tit team in December 2020 and has been working in the Brixton salon to familiarise herself with the Blue Tit clients. Working with Blue Tit’s co-founders and the lead educators at the Blue Tit academy throughout January 2021, Sharley will be leading on developing a thorough course to teach all members of the Blue Tit team across all 10 salons on Afro-textured hair.

The modules will be expansive, in-depth and detailed to equip the staff with a complete knowledge on how to care for Afro-textured hair, covering: styling, cutting, colouring, product knowledge, relaxing, braiding, chemical straightening and extensions.

“Embarking on my new role at Blue Tit as an Educator will allow me to incorporate both of my passions; hair and education. I am looking forward to implementing the training of afro and mixed texture hair into the Blue Tit Training Programme,” said Sharley.

“The lack of awareness and education available for this particular hair type within mainstream salon groups, and the mutual desire to make a change, is what attracted me to the Blue Tit brand. I am extremely excited to be a part of this journey!”

Matt Gebbie, director of Blue Tit London, said: “We are excited to welcome Sharley to the Blue Tit team, to direct and lead our Afro and Textured Hair education programme within the business and train our entire team of 120 stylists.

“We are committed to offering Afro and Textured Hair services across our 10 salons and making it compulsory for all our stylists – both new and existing – to complete the training programme implemented by Sharley.”
