Princess Diana's Short Haircut From Sam McKnight

Princess Diana's Famous Short Haircut Was Actually a Spur-of-the-Moment Decision

While Kate Middleton and soon-to-be-Duchess Meghan Markle have redefined "royal hair" with their long, sleek blowouts, back in the '90s, Lady Di reigned supreme as short-hair princess (and actual princess). But as hairstylist Sam McKnight reveals in his new memoir, her legendary cropped cut was actually a total impulse job.

As Us Weekly reports, McKnight was doing Princess Diana's hair for a 1990 Vogue cover. The team decided to put Diana's shoulder-grazing hair back in a faux cut so they could show off her tiara.

In the book Hair by Sam McKnight, the legendary stylist (whose talents have graced the manes of Lady Gaga and Kate Moss) wrote that Diana actually ended up liking the look. According to McKnight, "As she was leaving, Diana asked what would I do to her hair if I had free reign . . . I suggested cutting it short and she, to my surprise, agreed, and we did it there and then." And with that, the duo casually made style history. No big deal or anything.
