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.

    Mulberry A/W 2013

    It would seem that the Mulberry girl has grown up… Gone are her playful plaits, ruffled and undone after a night out on the tiles (as seen last season),  and  instead her hairstyle has taken a turn into the more beautiful, refined and ladylike with these sophisticated blow-dries that oozed health and luxury. “We wanted the girls to look more polished than other seasons”, explained Sam. “This was real life hair, with an expensive-looking twist”. Accordingly, it was middle-partings all around, a smooth blow-dry that was then finished with quick tonging to bring a slight bend into the hair for a natural waves. The look was then topped up with a bit of Supremo Magic Move balm to make it look ever-so-slightly lived-in, before the lengths were tucked away into the big collars and roll-necks on offer in the collection. Super chic.
