Well, what an amazing year 2017 was for The Coterie. We held six events that saw us travel to London, Glasgow and Leeds, had 17 – yes, 17! – incredible guest speakers and hosts… and a few of our Creative HEAD crew came along for good measure, too
We asked our panellists millions of questions (well, not quite, but there were A LOT), courted controversy, battled contentiousness, buddied up with brilliant brands and gave away hundreds of goody bags. There were also mountains of canapés, free-flowing drinks, and of course people like you giving us sell-out audiences at every single event!
To celebrate such a bumper year of inspiration and entertainment on the Coterie stage, we’re taking a look back at the events that rocked our world (and hopefully yours too). Get ready for us to take you back to May’s creative showcase, which featured LIVE recreations of the hottest runway and on-set looks. It’s time to relive ‘The Coterie: In Session’, held in partnership with BaByliss Pro…
WHEN: Tuesday 23 May 2017
WHERE: Jet Studios, London
WHO: Samantha Hillerby (A-list session stylist and owner of Samantha Hillerby Hair Studio), Joshua Goldsworthy (The It List Awards’ ‘It Guy’ 2016, session stylist and hairdresser at Goldworthy’s salon, Swindon) and Jessica Diner (Beauty & Health Director at Vogue)
WHAT: The super-talented two-some created a series of trend-inspired looks, all while being quizzed on their career histories, top technical tips and inspirations (for both commercial, client-based work and creative session jobs).
WORD ON THE TWEET:
“Samantha and Josh were both great – I’ve never seen a wig wrap before and Samantha’s insights from her career were so interesting. Your interviewer, Jessica Diner, asked lots of very good questions. The hair that both created was fab! Please pass on my compliments. These events are a great way to learn from the best and to network with other passionate hairdressers, and are a great way to spend an evening and £30!”
