Product Description

Product Description

All six episodes from the first series of this popular television drama about hairdressers at war, in love and at work. Allie Henshall (Sarah Parish) and husband Gavin (Jason Merrells) own a successful hairdressing salon and Allie dreams of expansion. However, the site they had their eye on, across the road, is taken over by rival hairdresser Mia (Amanda Holden) and husband Finn (Ben Daniels). Finn, it transpires was Allie's first love and it seems that it was not a coincidence that he moved opposite her. Meanwhile there is a hairdressing championship to win.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of a growing number of female-centred dramas, the first series of Cutting It was a sleeper hit for the BBC. Though its rival hairdresser premise seems fluffy, its classy gloss, off-beat scripting and strong cast make it as addictive as many of the outstanding TV series coming from the US. The drama unfolds when ambitious hairdresser Allie Henshall (Sarah Parish) wants to open a second salon. But her husband and business partner would prefer to start a family. Even when she puts in a bid for a property opposite her salon, Allie is beaten by rival hairdresser Mia Bevan (Amanda Holden). As a business war begins between Allie's Henshall Ferraday salon and Mia's Blade Runner, Allie has to overcome the reappearance of an old flame, Mia's husband, who is happy to rekindle his relationship with her.

As the relationship histories among the characters become absurdly intertwined, it is to the cast's credit that the human dynamics of the story surpass its plot. Though there are certainly moments of parody (take Mia's yogic warm-ups with her staff each morning) and questionable twists, Cutting It gives its leading ladies some sharp and funny lines to work with and the space to do so. Both Parish and Holden run the gamut of emotions despite the seemingly clear-cut good woman / bitch divide between their characters initially. Their actions may strain the limits of credibility, but these women hold attention effortlessly. --Laura Bushell

With the second series having kicked off on BBC1 in May 2003, this is a great chance for fans to relive the original 'Cutting It' or those who are new to the show to catch up on the background. Sarah Parrish shines as Allie, the ambitious hairdresser caught between her loyal, family-man husband Gavin and Finn, her bad-boy first love, and with a few more skeletons in the closet besides the turbulence of her love life. Domestic dramas edge into the work place, whilst the rivalries between Henshall-Ferraday (Allie's salon) and Blade Runner, the salon spearheaded by Finn's wife Mia (a brilliantly manipulative woman played by Amanda Holden with lashings of bitchiness), are more personal than professional. In all, a hugely entertaining drama with a talented cast and a broad appeal.

I dunno about you, but me and the girls would take tuesday nights off in 2002. We'd turn off all phones and put on our PJs and eat ice cream while catching up with our new best friends at Henshall-Ferraday.
Yes, "Cutting It" had it all: a hateful, vengeful love child, adultery, back stabbing, a calculating blonde (or rather two) and the most barmy hairdresses in Manchester. And that's not even mentioning the lovely Jason Merrells!
We screamed at Ali to stay with Gavin! That Finn was no good! We cried as we shared their pain... and we gladly do it all over agin!
If you watched the 1st series, buy the DVD anyway coz it's just far too cool and if you've just seen series 2, buy the 1st to see what you missed.
Heck, just buy it!!

I only got this one as it became a bit same-y after the first series but its still enjoyable. Its already seeming a bit retro with the old smaller mobile phones and fashions and music but I think that's what I love most about it.

Well i think my title has summed up 'Cutting It'!
A fantastic series which has you on the edge of your seat most of the time. Whether your willing Allie to pick Gavin over Finn (or vice-versa!) or crying out for the Henshall sisters to see Mia for who she really is!
It captivates the world of love triangles, affairs and most of all Hairdressing!
Overall a fantastic series and worth owning to watch over and over again - especially the outtakes!

Cutting It was a series shown on BBC 1 and it had most of the younger generation hooked. It showed hairdressers at war, and with a gripping storyline it made itself known. The characters had history with each other that was made clear throughout the seires, and although it sometimes became confusing, it kept everybody interested. The things the hairdressers got up to were amusing to say the least, and you could see the rivalry not only between business' but also within love lives, and social. This series is far superior to most tv series today as it has you gripped right from the start. I would reccomend this series to anyone who is up for a laugh.

This is a TV series that I missed. Having now bought it as a DVD set I am very pleased with the programme. I particularly enjoy sarah Parish, first class actor, and Amanda Holden who was at that time proving her skills.

This has to be one of the bext series ever made! Parish and Holden are perfectly cast as the hairdressers at war and love. The series is capable of bringing a tear to the eye of the most hardened but also likely to make you chortle with laughter. Living in Manchester, it gave me a thrill to see all the parts of Manchester used in the series and I actually saw parts being filmed! This is well worth buying!! The series, at times, does descend into a parody of itself, but it is so well filmed and written, you don't mind in the least! Buy it!!!

This first series of Cutting it, centred around the tangled interwoven relationships of the employees of a Manchester hair salon, are just gripping! I just couldn't miss a single episode to wash my hair! So many relationship tribulations, career battles to be won, obstacles and complications to eradicate, and secrets to explode in just eight episodes! Can't wait for more!
