BIG Brother star Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace brought a touch of glamour to Stourport when she helped officially unveil a new town salon.

Rapunzel You, based in the High Street, held a grand opening on Saturday, with Aisleyne making a special guest appearance to support her friend and salon owner Angie Monroe.

Visitors to the open day were given the chance to look around the venue and find out more about the business, which has also been awarded a coveted four stars by the Good Salon Guide.

Aisleyne, who has gone on to become a successful property investor, actress and author since her Big Brother appearance 12 years ago, said she was delighted to be part of the celebration.

She said: “I have been friends with Angie for a number of years now and I wanted to support her. She does my hair and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my extensions.

“I am all for female empowerment and what she is doing, setting up a business by herself, is amazing.”

She added: “I’ve never been to Stourport before. I have to confess, I thought I was going to Stockport! But this town is great and everyone here is so friendly.”

She added she is set to start filming the follow up to Brit comedy movie Anuvahood – in which she appeared in 2011 – and has recently launched her own eye lashes range.

Angie, who took Aisleyne out in the town after the event, said: “The event has been a great success as I wanted to let people know I’m now here.

“We are the only salon in the area to get four stars by the Good Salon Guide and I always listen to what my clients want. I’m very excited about the future.

“It’s absolutely fantastic that Aisleyne was able to come along. She is very busy but I knew she wouldn’t let me down.”
