TEXAS rocker Sharleen Spiteri says she was trained for fame by her first job as a hairdresser.
Sharleen, 50, says her humble beginnings at a Glasgow salon gave her enduring star quality.
She said: “Being a hairdresser put me in really good stead for what I do in the band.
“It gave me a connection with people. You touch them and, even as a stranger, you’re changing the way they feel about themselves.
“That’s not something that happens in many jobs.”
Sharleen gave up working at Irvine Rusk on West Nile Street to concentrate on Texas in 1988 and their first album Southside was an instant hit.
The band has since sold 40 million albums.
