Hats Off to Hollie

Jun 6, 2016 | Spotlight, Talent Highlight

Hollywood came to The Cutting Garden in May this year, when our junoir apprentice Hollie wowed the judges at the 2016 GHQ Training ‘Night at the Movies’ Hairshow.


One of the most visually challenging categories in the show this year was the Blockbuster section.

Absolutely Stunning

Hollie represented The Cutting Garden with an absolutely stunning creation based on The Mad Hatter from the film version of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ starring Johnny Depp.

Mad Skills

By using a card framework she was able to sculpt the model’s hair to create the illusion of a flamboyant top hat. Hollie completed the illusion with skillful use of props such as ribbon and playing cards. Striking make up applied the finishing touches to a truly stunning and deservedly award-winning creation.

First Prize

Hollie’s creativity and skills impressed the judges so much that she was awarded the 1st year prize.

“Everyone here at the Cutting Garden are delighted with Hollie’s success” said Bill Roose, owner of The Cutting Garden. “We always encourage our stylists to develop their skills and talents. This starts with our apprentices and we all celebrate the creative ability of every member of our team.”
