Do you remember Princess Diana’s short, sleeked back hair? Or Tilda Swinton channeling David Bowie? That’s all Sam McKnight’s hair magic. He has done over 190 Vogue covers, endless fashion editorials and many advertising campaigns. And we’d say it was about time all his magic was exhibited in one place. So from 2nd of November 2016 til 12th of March 2017 everyone can enter Sam McKnight’s world at Somerset House (Embankment Galleries) in London.

Not only will you see photography, magazines, catwalk and backstage photos, but also hair pieces, wigs, videos and audio, texts from Karl Lagerfeld, Nick Knight and others, and to mark the occasion, a book will be published where you can find images from his entire career.

We cannot wait to get our hands on the book! If you can visit the exhibition, do so and let us know how it went. You can buy your ticket here.
