BB exclusive: hot gossip from hairdresser Rachel White's boss

Those of you who share one of my many guilty pleasures – Big Brother – will be well acquainted with Beyoncé’s uncanny doppelgänger, Rachael White. Being a hairdresser, I naturally wanted to find out more about her, so I tracked down her boss this morning to try to get some gossip.

Rachel has worked at Derby’s Bonds Hair since June 2006 for owner Barry Yoemans. She’s apparently one of the salon’s most successful stylists, and told her employer she was off to Ibiza for the summer instead of joining the final 80 contestants battling for a place in the house. “Many of her clients have been quite surprised to see her on the show – including us,” says Barry. “But many have posted good luck wishes on our Facebook page and are also telling friends that their hairdresser is on BB. It’s quite a talking point on Facebook and in the salon.”

Barry is predicting that Rachel will be a popular housemate thanks to her bubbly – although sometimes fiery – personality. “Her training as a hairdresser with serve her well with people skills in the house,” he says. “She’s used to dealing with all sorts of people; as a hairdresser, you have to know your client and sometimes listen to their life story while you’re doing their hair. These skills are very valuable and will hopefully make Rachael very popular in the house.”

Meanwhile Rachel enlisted the hair extensions skills of her colleague, Jasmine Brown, last week to ensure she had the perfect ‘Beyoncé bounce’. “Rachel has a mixture of dark and mid brown hair extensions and wears 50cm length hair because she likes it longer,” says Jasmine. “She loves Great Lengths because they are superior and versatile, allowing her to change her style form wavy to straight when she wants.’
