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.

    ICEBERG S/S 2013

    Iceberg has the hippie, rock chick look down to a tea and this season was no exception.
    Feeling that there was a lot of colour and print in the collection, Sam wanted the hair to stay true to the identity of the ‘Iceberg’ girl, whilst keeping the look luxe and chic. He created a look that was simple, classic and Nineties, but with a contemporary twist. On clean hair, Sam created crisp middle partings and instead of twisting the lengths into chignons or a low ponytail, hair was tied at the nape of the neck and then rolled back on itself before being secured into a loop-the-loop with black elastic. Seeing as the Sixties are proving to be so in vogue this season, why not do the twist and try this for yourself?
