Here’s Why Princess Diana Decided to Spontaneously Chop Off Her Hair
What better way to change your look than with a new haircut? Apparently, Princess Diana knew this well before handing the scissors over to hairdresser Sam McKnight during a photoshoot.
In a video for British Vogue, McKnight revealed the story behind Princess Diana's iconic short hair. According to him, the king asked how he would style her hair if he had the chance. And from there it was history.
"I said, 'I'd cut it all off and just start over," he recalled. "It was the early 90s and at that time I was doing a lot of shows and covers and a lot of the girls had short hair and we did moved from the great Frou-Frou-80s to the 80s, hot androgynous business chic of the 90s. "

Princess Diana allegedly said: "Well, why don't you just cut it off now?" "So then I cut it off and we never looked back," McKnight said. This short hair was her signature for years to come.
Princess Di's fashion and hair influenced culture both in the 90s and today. The modern Diana bob is one of the most popular hairstyles this year. Plus, Emma Corrin's portrayal of Princess Diana in The Crown has rekindled interest in royal style.
McKnight actually got the chance to work with Corrin on a Vogue cover. "From one Princess Diana to another," he said. "I remember that day. That was my first job after the first lockdown in summer , and I remember when the job came up I wasn't exactly sure I was the right person for it ... Indeed it was a pleasure and Emma was a pleasure, and I was quite impressed with how similar Emma looked to Princess Diana. And she was such a lovely girl that it raised all doubts and fears. "
