MEET THE TEAM
" I started my training when I was 15. I was very fortunate to work with the world renowned Jean Louis David in Cannes. I met my husband Tim Butler in Cannes whilst he was doing his music tour. I fell in love and 11 months later I found myself in Edinburgh. I loved Edinburgh straight away and got a great job in Klownz in Stockbridge and worked with the amazing Derek Preston. We then came to Fife to join the family business and then a few years later the Seafood Restaurant, Butler and CO Deli and Sophie Butler were born. After a couple of years running my mobile salon, i opened my first shop in 1999. In 2000 we moved to Greyfriars for a bigger premises. In October 2013 we moved to this lovely premises on South Street.
Since then we have welcomed the amazing Aileen Wallace-Edgar from the Vintage Beauty Box. It has been the best addition we could have wished for as her business complements ours so well, and together, we are able to offer our clients everything they need under one roof.
The Sophie Butler team is carefully hand picked by me and I am always very picky with who I work with. I try to have a wide range of personalities to suit everyone and all our staff are trained to the highest standards. We take our training seriously and we never stop learning new skills. I absolutely love my job, my favourite part is making a difference to someones day".

BARBER AND GRADUATE STYLIST
"I've been in the hairdressing industry for three years now and i'm enjoying every minute. I enjoy every aspect of the job and love the buzz of working at fashion shows and doing editorial work. However, cutting ladies and gents is my favourite.
