Pixie, when you do cut it try to aim for an angled cut....I.e. wider at the bottom tapering slightly to the top. It will look better, be healthier and help you achieve a seemingly narrow hedge there as, at shoulder height, it will be narrower.
Ok, it may look bare at first but few things look their best in winter. Spring and new growth will soon be here
