Behind The Screens: Hollywood Hairstyling, Coordinating Intimacy, And Illustrating The Great British Bake Off


Join us as we go behind the scenes to meet people who make the shows you love really, really great. You’ll hear about the power and beauty of natural hair from the hair stylist for actress Issa Rae of HBO’s Insecure, and you’ll find out how the food illustrations are done for the Great British Bake Off. Plus, an intimacy coordinator talks about the ins and outs of filming sex scenes.

Join the conversation onFacebook,Twitter, and email.

  • Felicia Leatherwood is the personal hairstylist to Issa Rae and other actors and musicians. She’s also a public speaker advocating people to embrace their natural hair
