It seems the knocks former Collingwood midfielder Brodie Holland received on the footy field hasn’t dented his post-football career.
Holland was recently showing off a bit of smoulder at a photo shoot for Port Melbourne beauty salon Secret Stylist, along with mate and
former on-field opponent Russell Robertson.
Friends since their draft days, and both hailing from the island state, the boys have both carved out successful careers in music, modelling and TV appearances, but are probably best known for their website and internet TV show Uncle Jimmy’s Pool Room.
“Things are going well,” said Holland, a guest on Football Nation’s online TV show ‘The F Word’ last season. “I’m enjoying the modelling and Uncle Jimmy’s is going well, getting plenty of fans and growing by
After coyly admitting to the occasional spray tan at the salon, a favourite amongst WAGs and celebrities, Holland said he was happy to get a bit of styling help to help attract the modelling jobs.
However, former Demon Robertson, who kicked 422 goals over 226 games, remains focused on his music, in particular the band he’s formed with Phil Ceberano and the occasional tongue-in-cheek song performed for Uncle Jimmy’s.
“Modelling is more Brodie’s thing,” he explained “He’s just asked me to come and help out.”
The band follows his success on 2008’s TV singing show It Takes Two with partner Kate Ceberano and the release of his album “Higher”, which was met with great reviews.
The boys were helping Secret Stylist CEO Serena de Comarmond with some publicity for her new range of male-focused beauty and styling treatments.
“We’d noticed more and more of our clients were men, so thought we’d come up with a range tailored to male skin,” Ms de Comarmond said.
“Robbo and Brodie were the perfect choice to be the public face of our new range,” she said.
Secret Stylist is at E1 63/85 Turner Street, Port Melbourne.
