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 Winning Formula

    The December issue of Vogue sees another collaboration between Sam McKnight, Kate Moss and the British fashion bible. “I think I have done around 80 covers for British Vogue, around 20 of these are with Kate”, said Sam. “I’ve worked with Kate more than any other model or celebrity over the years and she has become a good friend. As well as being a great beauty and model with unparalleled versatility, Kate’s a great person to hang out with, so a shoot with her is always going to be memorable one”. See here his hand-picked absolute favourites.
