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.

    Mugler A/W 2013

    All aboard for the latest instalment of the Mugler show, inspired by the sophistication of air travel in the Sixties (fashion trivia: did you know that designer Nicola Formicetti’s mother was an air hostess and one of his muses?). Taking Nicola’s cue, Sam created a rounded, aerodynamic-shaped dome on the head to echo the shape of the hats and hoods in the collection, which was fittingly shown in an industrial hangar-like space. As an added bonus, music maestro Michel Gaubert created a soundtrack of jets taking off. Next destination? Balmain.
