Polstead welcomed Sophie Rickards to give us a talk titled “Hair”, but it was so much more than that.  Sophie, as it happens, is also the President of Hadleigh Evening WI.  Sophie began by telling us that years ago she was a nurse and had four children.  She then worked for a Ftse 100 company, but was made redundant.  Sophie wanted to empower women, and she then embarked on a two years hairdressing course at West Suffolk college, and passed the necessary exams.  Sophie wanted to empower women and explained about alopecia and how she has been able to assist with hair transplants. Sophie works for a cosmetic surgeon who is based in Colchester four days a week, and one day a week in Harley Street.  Sophie told us of the various treatments that people can have, such as liposuction.  The whole talk was incredibly interesting, and Sophie was very happy answering all our questions!!
