    Princess Diana’s hairstylist on recreating her hairstyle for The Crown

    Princess Diana’s hairdresser admits it was ‘weird’ recreating his client’s signature style on actress Emma Corrin who plays the royal in the next series of The Crown

    • Sam McKnight recreated Princess Diana’s hairstyle on Emma Corrin for Vogue
    • Actress is set to play the late royal in the forthcoming series of The Crown 
    • Sam was late royal’s hairstylist for seven years – from 1990 until tragic 1997 death

    Princess Diana‘s hairstylist has told how it felt ‘weird’ recreating his former client’s hairstyle on The Crown’s Emma Corrin.

    Sam McKnight was the late royal’s hairstylist for seven years – from 1990 until her tragic death in 1997 – and is also renowned for creating Kate Moss’s rock-chick bedhead.

    He has since spoken about being asked to recreate Diana’s signature voluminous style that she donned in the ’80s on Emma Corrin – who is set to play her in the forthcoming series of the Netflix hit – for Vogue’s October 2020 cover.

    ‘It felt weird,’ he said, speaking to Vogue. ‘But then, it was one of my first jobs after lockdown so I thought, ‘You know what? You’re thinking about this too much.’

    Sam – who has created looks that have been copied across Britain – went on to admit that he had some doubts after first hearing the request.

    But he added: ‘To be honest, Emma is playing Diana before I even met her, so it felt fine,’ he explained. ‘We took a nod to the photos of Diana [in that period] and made a little pastiche of it.’

    Speaking of how he achieved Princess Diana’s ’80s look on Emma, Sam explained: ‘Like Diana, Emma has a ton of hair. I set it on hot rollers and treated it as I would have done on shoots for Vogue in the ’80s,’

    He went on to add that just like with most models he worked on in the era – regardless of the length of his hair – a hot roller set, backcombing and hairspray were his go-to.

    However, it was the androgynous-inspired hairstyle that Sam created on Diana in the 1990s that really came to define her look. 

    He recalled how it all came about when the late royal asked him what he’d do to her hair if he was given the choice, and he replied he’d ‘cut it all off and start again.’ 

    Sam also went on to reveal that the late royal credited him for helping her to change the way she felt about herself in the early ’90s. 

    He added: ‘Someone sent me a television clip of her, [filmed] around the time of the Andrew Morton book, where the interviewer asked her what sparked her confidence to change in the early ’90s, and she actually said that it was Sam, who cut her hair. I melted.’ 

    Throughout the 1990s, Sam also worked with supermodels Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.
