Skye, the owner of Skye Norman Hair & Beauty, opened the doors to the world back in 2005 with the vision to provide an oasis of calm within the heart of Chelsea.
Being set just off the King’s Road gives the salon a private boutique feel and that’s just how Skye intended it to be!
Having a long established reputation for warmth and expertise with a friendly relaxed style, Skye believes these details are the keys to her success. Skye Norman has worked closely in the past with global hair brands such as L’Oreal and Schwarzkopf to deliver the utmost exceptional work within the hairdressing industry and is determined to maintain the highest quality in her own salon.
She has also been very active participating in London Fashion Week for designer labels, creating hair looks for the catwalk and working on pop videos for stars such as Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and other celebrities.
“I love working in our London salon and love to create beautiful manageable hair that people can easily manage at home. I also think it is very important that our clients get to see one stylist throughout their experience with us; to me hair is art and we need to be able to visualise our creation from start to finish, much the same as an artist works on a canvas”
Welcome to our salon.

Pamela was chosen from hundreds of hopefuls to compete with ten others for the prestigious L’Oreal Colour Trophy, one of the most prominent hairdressing awards in New Zealand.
With over 20 years’ experience, Pamela began her career with an advanced apprenticeship qualifying trade certificate within the top 10% of New Zealand and was awarded Top Apprentice at Southland University for two years running. She was very active on the competition front receiving numerous artistic and colour awards over the years at both regional and national level.
Over the subsequent years, Pamela tried her hand at a few things: macramé knotting for beginners; wake boarding; and working as a freelance contributor for The Waikato Times, a major New Zealand publication, where she produced a seasonal hair supplement, writing an extensive feature on recent and progressive hair trends and co-ordinating photo shoots to compliment the feature. She was also asked to work for WISE (Women in Self-employment) as a tutor coaching woman who were looking to re-enter the work force and needed to update their look; she helped these women find out what suited them by teaching them the principles of colour, face shape, make up skills, helping them gain some new confidence on the way.
Since making the big move to the UK Pamela has worked for some of London’s top West End salons before coming to snip, colour and co-manage at Skye Norman Hair & Beauty. She no longer competes as she prefers to focus solely on her clientele, eat cake and watch re-runs of Come Dine With Me. Pamela still contributes to various publications, most recently Cosmopolitan Bride.
She continues to live happily ever after.
