  • Still to this day, Princess Diana's signature bob haircut is legendary but as it turns out, her supershort hairstyle was actually a total impulse job.
  • In the latest episode of Vogue's YouTube series Vogue Visionaries, Sam McKnight, who was the Princess of Wales's personal hairstylist in the 90s, talked about how it all started when his team decided to put her shoulder-grazing hair in a faux bob using her tiara for a 1990 Vogue cover.
  • After the shoot ended, Princess Diana asked McKnight the question every stylist dreams of hearing: what would you do with my hair if you had free reign" And the answer for McKnight was a no-brainer.
  • "I said, 'I would cut it all off and just start again,'" McKnight said in the video.
