She is a student at Ever After High. Holly is a Royal, due to being the older twin and getting the Rapunzel destiny and she is okay with this because she wants her destiny as the next Rapunzel. Soon Holly and Poppy learn that Poppy is really the older twin making making Poppy the one to receive the Rapunzel fairy tale. However, for years the reverse was thought to be true and Holly enjoys the idea of following her destiny. In "Truth or Hair" it is revealed that Holly is really Poppy and Poppy is really Holly. Their birth certificates were switched by their nanny, Nona. She and Poppy have agreed to keep this reality a secret from everyone else, because Holly wants to be Rapunzel and Poppy doesn't. Holly arranged for Poppy to go to Ever After High despite Poppy's lack of destiny making her a Rebel by default.
Being daughter of Rapunzel, she is already used to letting others use her hair for tower escapes and she seems happy to help. She enjoys reading and often tells her sister Poppy stories. Because of this she is regarded as smart. This is a pastime she will rely heavily on in her own fairy tale. Holly is a total Royal enthusiast and she is normally incredibly preppy.
Holly has very long auburn hair with a braid on the side. She has pale skin, aqua-blue colored eyes, and natural pink lips. Holly's choice of attire is quaint yet charming - she enjoys braiding her hair or styling it in an up-do and embellishing her accessories with hollies, hence her name. With her outfits, Holly normally wears pastel colors with gold. Despite the color "auburn" being a color literally to be a reddish-brown traditionally, her hair appears more strawberry-blond or redhead, looking to be a very light burnt-orange. But, in the books and characters' diaries, her hair is described as auburn.
Holly fancies reading in the library, as she knows that she's going to be doing much of it alone when she becomes the next Rapunzel. Along with reading, she indulges in writing as well. Be it writing stories or fan fiction about her friends, Holly claims that imagination is a princess's best friend.
Holly is also part of the cheer-hexing squad.
