Donna’s hairway to stardom

Donna ran a salon in Knaphill for 15 years and is now a styling teacher and does hair for special events.

One of those was a Star Wars-themed wedding and another featured a bride as an Elvish princess from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

She said the programme was “probably the most stressful, out-of-my-comfort-zone, experience I’ve ever had.

“That bit you see on reality programmes where contestants are waiting to hear their fate – that went on for 45 minutes,” Donna said.

She said she later learnt that the delay was caused by a heated argument between the judges and the show producers as to which contestant had to leave.

“I’m hoping that will be shown,” she said.
