All the action from The Coterie: In Session Manchester

by | 28 Nov 2022

Bringing the buzz of The Coterie: In Session to the streets of Manchester for the first time, click through our gallery for a fresh dose of creativity and inspiration


It was high energy and pure creativity, as four artists – Carlo Avena, Louis Byrne, Tariq Howes and Jody Taylor, let a packed audience join them on set, while they each created a trend-leading editorial look. As they worked, ELLE UK’s senior beauty editor, George Driver, got to quizzing, getting the quartet to divulge some of their session secrets and go-to styling tips. Culminating in an against-the-clock challenge set by George – avant garde with an editorial twist – the crowd called a close tie between some impressive quick-fire looks from pastel colour and a blunt fringe to a wet look and sculpted creation. More drinks and networking followed, before guests walked away with one very generous goody bag courtesy of evening sponsors BaByliss PRO – a cordless super motor clipper and trimmer collection, adding some serious gear to their own kits.
