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.

    Vogue’s Monday Makeovers

    There is no sugar-coating it – Monday can often be the hardest day of the week to get back into the swing of things after the weekend. For those looking for inspiration for their beauty look for the week, American Vogue have commissioned a series of new videos, entitled ‘The Monday Makeover’, for their YouTube channel to provide food for thought. Featuring looks from various hair and beauty creatives including make-up artists Hannah Murray and Yadim, Sam was asked to contribute a series of hair looks to motivate. See here the first two videos show-casing a modern, mussed-up chignon and a romantic braid, taking the standard how-to video to a whole new level.
