I have 2 Goshiki False Holly Shrubs in a different location than the others and they look like they suffered a severe winter burn. Is there any way to restore them? I don't want to cut them down to the ground but they look really bad.

Winter burn should be pruned away to make the shrubs look more attractive and to encourage the development of new stems and foliage. You can wait until new growth begins and then prune the shrubs back to remove the obviously dead plant parts. Waiting until new growth begins will help you determine which stems and branches are alive and which have died over the winter months.
