Hair by Sam McKnight at Somerset House

A major exhibition celebrating Sam McKnight’s remarkable 40-year career from the late 1970s to the current day has arrived in Somerset House. Sam McKnight has been instrumental in helping to create some of the most iconic images in popular culture from Princess Diana’s short, slicked back style to Madonna’s Bedtime Stories album cover and Tilda Swinton channelling David Bowie.

McKnight’s work traces a vast array of movements and hairstyles, from nostalgic to androgynous, romantic to sexy, red to platinum, cataloguing the transformative nature of hair within the image.

He has worked on countless fashion editorial shoots (including over 190 Vogue covers), advertising campaigns and catwalk shows with supermodels Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell, and with international fashion designers Chanel and Vivienne Westwood. Hair by Sam McKnight is the first exhibition to contextualise the wider cultural significance of hair and the role of the session stylist within fashion.
