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.
