Having been part of the Paul Mitchell ART Team for 6 years has fuelled Holly’s confidence and talent, which she has demonstrated on stage professionally, including showcasing in Poland and back here at Gershwins. Holly has featured in our video and editorial work across the country showcasing the best of her work. Holly loves to share her knowledge with her guests and educates the Team with Creative Collection sessions.

‘Being able to bring my knowledge back to Gershwins and use it in creative training sessions to develop my colleagues, makes all the hard work worthwhile. It’s really important in hairdressing not to limit yourself and accept any opportunities that are available to you.
