A bounty of hairstyles, from nostalgic to androgynous, that have transformed women throughout the past forty years, from the legendary Sam McKnight, one of fashion’s leading hairstylists. With photographs spanning Sam McKnight’s entire career, this book is a dramatic anthology of looks—from retro to androgynous, romantic to sexy, red to platinum—all from the master hairstylist’s deft hand. Featured are some of the most iconic images in popular culture—Princess Diana’s short, slicked-back style, Madonna’s Bedtime Stories cover, Tilda Swinton channeling David Bowie, both Lady Gaga and her male alter-ego, Jo Calderone, plus countless editorial stories featuring the ultimate model for everywoman, Kate Moss, in myriad demonstrations of hairstyles.
McKnight has won numerous awards and has worked with some of the top names in fashion—Patrick Demarchelier, Nick Knight, and Mario Testino to name just a few. From ingenues to tomboys, from the girl next door to the Hollywood siren, the book is organized by theme and includes McKnight’s informative commentary throughout. Richly illustrated, it features photographs by leading fashion photographers and styles commissioned by Vivienne Westwood, Balmain, Chanel, and many others. A unique reference book that is at once a glamorous look through the past forty years of some of fashion’s most memorable looks and a style bible for glorious locks.
Sam McKnight has been working as a session stylist since the late 1970s and is one of the first hairstylists to carve a career solely within fashion.
Tim Blanks is editor-at-large for the Business of Fashion. He has been covering fashion around the world since 1985.
