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
