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.

    Fendi A/W 2013

    The punk trend has carried over into Milan and with Fendi never failing to deliver when it comes to fashion theatrics, this season’s punk rockers were absolutely no exception. Sam’s “braided mohawks” were accented with coloured fox fur headpieces designed by Karl Lagerfeld to add a graphic element to the 3-D French braid that “ran like a seam down the centre of the head”. Teamed with deep purple-stained lips, the creations of make-up artist Peter Philips, London punk has truly come to Milan.
