Sam McKnight is a professional hair stylist and legend who’s been working in fashion for 40 years. Sam was Princess Diana’s stylst for seven years and he’s styled every supermodel on the planet from Cindy Crawford to Kate Moss, who is also one of his closest friends.

“Sam has been doing this so long, he is a genius. He just flips his finger and the hair looks amazing”, Gigi Hadid told us backstsage at Balmain Spring 2017 collection in Paris.

Sam’s new book “Hair by Sam McKnight’, published by Rizzoli was released this week, it’s a personal visual diary of his remarkable career, “it’s forty years of fashion through hair”.

Sam creates the looks for the biggest fashion runway shows in the world, including Chanel, Fendi, Balmain and DSquared2 and has been working with Karl Lagerfeld for the last decade. We’ve been filming backstage with Sam during that entire time and had the opportunity to produce this mini-documentary film about Sam McKnight for Allure Magazine.
