Sam McKnight is one of the most accomplished and well-respected hair stylists of his generation. His name is synonymous with modern, sexy hair - whether it's in magazines, on the runway or the red carpet.

He's won countless awards but perhaps the biggest accolade is the longstanding creative collaborations he has maintained with some of the best names in the business - Patrick Demarchelier, Nick Knight and Mario Testino; Karl Lagerfeld/Chanel, Vivenne Westwood, Balmain and Fendi to name just a few.

In the fleeting world of fashin imagery Sam's permanence is fixed in some of the most iconic images in modern history - Princess Diana's short, slicked back style, Agyness Deyn's bleached blonde crop, Madonna's Bedtime Stories cover, Cate Blanchett getting her Oscar, Tilda Swinton channelling Bowie, both Lady Gaga and her male alter-ego Jo Calderone plus countless covers and editorial stories of Kate Moss and all the supermodels.

The longevity of Sam's carrer career - over 30 years - provides a fantastic back-catalogue of references to bring to his work and it is this and his search for the new that keeps him so in demand.

    A Model Model

    Ever wanted to know what a life-sized bronze model of Kate Moss would look like? Look no further than this cover of Pop Magazine, featuring Kate in a sculpture created by iconic artist Allen Jones. She was photographed as part of a project for an auction at Christie’s, Kate Moss, From the Collection of Gert Elfering, a celebration of Kate being the ultimate modern muse. The auction raised over £1.5 million pounds in total, with this sculpture, A Model Model, reaching £133, 000 alone. Sam created the hair for this shoot, saying “it was shot in Allen’s home studio in Clerkenwell. He has been a hero of mine ever since I started, so I was thrilled to meet him and his wife and see some of his artwork at home”.
