My tastes for my personal fashion run to what I call “gentleman’s classic” or what some in the fashion industry may well refer to as boring. I take pride in how I dress, and I wear top brands almost exclusively but I’m 61 and living a real, professional life not 22 strutting on a runway in Milan.
That said, I do appreciate and enjoy the work of those in the fashion industry who have immense talent that can be recognized by their longevity. Sam McKnight is one of those people … a hair stylist extraordinaire.
Legendary hair stylist, Sam McKnight has worked in the fashion industry for five decades and created some of the world’s most iconic hairstyles, his styles gracing countless magazine covers, catwalks and celebrity clients. (From Kate Moss and the late Princess Diana).
The bio blurb is from his website and the Instagram shot below, from the Chanel show in Paris, is evidence enough of his amazing talent.

The beach came to @chanelofficial , rich beach hair , inspired by the 70’s jet set. Hair was unbrushed, loosely tonged into luxurious undone waves using #ModernHairspray, then sprayed with #CoolGirl texturiser or salt spray or moisture balm depending on their natural texture #hairbysammcknight #teammcknight makeup @luciapicaofficial nails @annyerrandonea_nailsartist #karllagerfeld #chanel #pfw #beachluxe #backstage #bts with beautiful @laurenjdg
