ONE of the stars from hit TV show The Only Way is Essex has helped a Harpenden hairdresser raise over £1,300 for charity.
James ‘Arg’ Argent from the ITV2 show entertained guests at Sabrina & Co Hair and Beauty’s event in aid of Help for Heroes at The George Pub on Luton Road.
Over 250 guests attended the event at the end of last month which also saw local soldiers volunteer to take part in a charity waxathon.
A Harpenden-based designer, The Perfect Dress Co, showcased their latest range of glamorous party dresses on the catwalk and guests were given free fake tans and mini makeovers.
Sabrina & Co Hair and Beauty Owner, Sabrina Collins said: “Arg was lovely, he was really shy but he was dying to get out into the crowd and give out prizes.”
The TOWIE star spent the whole evening at the event and the show’s producers joined the afterparty.
Ms Collins added: “The atmosphere of the evening was crazy - everyone was having a great time. No one wanted it to end.”
The salon hopes that the fashion and beauty evening will become an annual event, with each year getting bigger and better than the one before.
