Fans of Vanessa Feltz and her Channel5 TV show will have been delighted to spot a familiar Evesham star recently.
Port Street-based Trichologist Sally-Ann Tarver was called in to the studios to offer help and advice to alopecia sufferers, and the special guest alongside Sally-Ann was the lovely Gail Porter, who has personal experience of the condition.
Sally-Ann is a real local lady, having studied at Prince Henry’s School and started her career with Michael Clarke’s Salon here in town.
Her expertise has been used before, on TV shows such as This Morning, and she has also featured in national newspapers including the Daily Mirror. But it was still a surprise when she received the call to the studios.
“I could only offer Gail general advice during the show, since she has her own Trichologist, but even so I was able to hopefully bring some optimism to any viewers affected by alopecia and other scalp problems,” says Sally-Ann.
Sally-Ann has clients from all over the world, and tells me that during the snows this winter, a lady from Badsey telephoned her to say she couldn’t make it through the drifts.
Fifteen minutes later a client from Jordan turned up two hours early for her appointment!
