Styling. Chatting. Socialising… Get ready for on-set hair action,
live and IRL!
On Monday 19 July, we’ll be throwing open the doors of a London studio and inviting you to join us live on set for The Coterie: In Session, our annual lid-lifter on the world of editorial shoots, held in partnership with BaByliss PRO. A glimpse into the day-to-day of not one, but two impressive hair artists, you’ll get up close on the cove with Sharon Robinson and Lauren Bell, as they create looks live, whilst divulging their session secrets and chatting about their careers to date with award-winning journalist Dr Ateh Jewel.
And what of covid we hear you ask? Well, as of 17 May, UK events were allowed to resume in line with protocol, but on 19 July, our event date, the UK is due to lift all remaining restrictions – yes, we are touching wood as we type this… So, we plan to be back in person, with drinks, a sit-in audience and socialising and we can hardly wait!
For those not already familiar with our first artist Sharon Robinson let us get you acquainted. Falling in love with hair aged just 14, over her impressive career Sharon has racked up credits including Vogue Italia, Hunger, KingKong, FGUK, Beauty Papers, Grazia and The Times Luxx, has worked shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris, for designers such as Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Balenciaga, styled for TV and collaborated with brands from Nike and Fila to Sony and Virgin. Over the last six years she made the move to session full time and has since assisted the likes of Malcolm Edwards, Sam McKnight, Guido Palau, Cyndia Harvey, Syd Hayes, Jawara and many more. Trust us, a browse of her insta is enough to give you a taste of the ingenuity in store for you on set.
Her cove counterpart is none other than Lauren Bell, an exciting name on the session circuit, just check out her work. At 28 years old, she’s already racked up 10 years of experience, working across high-profile publications like Schön, L’Officiel, ELLE, INFRINGE, Rollacoaster, marie claire, Grazia and Hunger, assisted Guido, Tina Outen, Anthony Turner, James Pecis, Adam Reed and Richard Phillipart on shows including Burberry, Dior Couture, Erdem, Roksanda, Natasha Zinko and Marques’Almeida, plus counts clients in The Rake, Sony and Puma. She’s also impressed judges at Creative HEAD’s The It List Awards, finalising for The It Girl, The Editorial Stylist and The Visionary due to her impressive portfolio, establishing herself as a hot talent to watch in our industry.
And what of our host, the incredible Dr. Ateh Jewel? Well, she’s a multi award-winning journalist, producer, director, influencer and diversity advocate! Ateh has written for titles including Vogue, Sunday Times Style, Financial Times, The Guardian and Harper’s Bazaar, plus can often be found sharing her expertise on This Morning. In 2020, she was awarded the CEW Achiever Award, in recognition of her diversity work over 20 years in the beauty industry. Wow, now that’s quite the resume.
