Meet our team

Natalie sanby

Director & Senior Colour Technician

From being a young girl, I have always wanted to be a hairdresser. I started hairdressing straight from school and joined Norman & Philip as an apprentice.

I enjoy all aspects of my job, but hair colouring is probably my favourite. I love working on different styles and learning new techniques. I also believe in giving back to the younger generation and training the juniors gives me so much satisfaction.

We at Norman & Philip are a very close team of experienced and dedicated professionals. We support each other, share ideas and help one another in busy periods. In this stylish and fashion driven industry, every single day is different and there will always be new styles, techniques and visionary stylists to learn from, keeping the industry alive and thriving. Attending hair shows and competition work makes the salon vibrant and an amazing place to work and grow. 


Being in the hair industry enables us to continually grow and move with the latest styles and trends. We are lucky to have a wide range of clients and personalities coming through our door on a daily basis. Once a new client joins our salon, very rarely they leave and go elsewhere. This for me does not feel like work, but a place where I go to see my friends.

At our salon, we regularly hold workshops to keep on growing our skills and keep the creative juices flowing and broaden our minds. Please come for a free consultation and we will create something new and exciting for you or drop in just to say ‘Hello’.

Sheila Ackers

Receptionist & Manicurist



I have worked for Norman & Philip as a part time receptionist and manicurist for many years. My job involves booking appointments, greeting clients on arrival, checking them out and offering manicure services while they are having their hair done. 

Being friendly and communicative is my key. I always ensure that each visit to the salon is a happy one. This aspect of my job is what I enjoy the most. 

It is the biggest pleasure to work alongside such fantastic specialists. I am very grateful to be a part of Norman & Philip team. 

Sharon ollerton

Senior Stylist 

I started my journey as an assistant 31 years ago at Norman & Philip. I absolutely love everything about being in the hairdressing industry. Even though I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing, I think my passion is cutting. I have gained many skills and knowledge and also made lifelong friends and clients. I pride myself on being a great team player and will always be a good support to my co-workers and help where I can.

My extensive knowledge has made me a good leader and this has proved valuable to be an assistant manageress to process in a manager at a Norman & Philip branch and, also, providing training for our young and coming hairdressers.

I am not sure where 31 years have gone, but I have thoroughly enjoyed those years, giving satisfaction and good customer service and making others feel good about themselves. The industry is always changing and I continue to learn new skills with training sessions. Working in this great team environment with fabulous clients, having a laugh and providing a service keeps me motivated. I take my inspiration from the celebrity stylist Adee Phelan. His work is outstanding.

I have only worked at Norman & Philip for a short time, but have been very welcomed into the team. I have been hairdressing since I left school and love all aspects of my work. I have gained many qualifications and experience over the years and I have a real passion for creative colour work and also hair-ups.

I love the vibe in the salon- we all work as a team and often socialise together outside of work. I enjoy teaching my skills to our apprentices and passing my knowledge on gives me a great satisfaction. I continue to learn new skills with training sessions and courses. I really enjoy working in this excellent environment.

The atmosphere in the salon is buzzing and everyone leaves feeling great.

Senior Colour Technician & Stylist

I have been working at Norman & Philip for 19 years. Training in the industry and learning skills allow me to be really creative. My passion is colouring- there is something really satisfying about transforming someone’s hair and making them feel good about themselves.

I have also trained our assistants and I really enjoy passing on my talent to others. I enjoy going on courses, learning different techniques and concepts and sharing this to the rest of the staff. I would absolutely love to work with Trevor Sorbie. He really inspires me.

I love the atmosphere in our salon. There is always a really good vibe and the most important thing that we all work as a team.


vanessa atkinson

Senior Stylist

I started working at Norman & Philip as an assistant from school in 1996. I really enjoyed training and learned many skills. I pride myself on offering the best possible customer service. As a senior stylist with a young family, this industry allows me to work around the demands of family life and have now worked part time for the past 10 years. Working well under pressure is where I thrive, but always giving 100% to every client. I have also been involved in training and have been a manager of a Norman & Philip branch over the years I have served.

My passion is cutting, but love learning new techniques on courses and training sessions held in salon. I work with a fabulous team and have made some great friends and memories. I take my inspiration from many celebrity hairdressers. I will continue learning and making more great memories within the company.
