Hair by Sam McKnight explored the role of hair within image making. Using the career of session stylist Sam McKnight as a case study it prompted an interrogation into the way that hairstyles evolve inline with fashion. Celebrating McKnight’s forty-year career it was the first exhibition to focus on the craft of a session stylist. A term that describes a hairstylist working within the fashion industry on editorial and advertisement shoots and catwalk shows.
