Her hairstyles were a true reflection of her personality. From shy, sweet and romantic Lady Di she would pass through series of transformations in her look, to become a modern princess, the Queen of Style for the generations of women.
While Diana’s clothes generated a lot of public attention, it was her hairstyles that had become the true expression of her style and her personality.
"She always wondered why people were so interested in her hair," said Richard Dalton, the hairstylist of Princess Diana. The Scottish-born stylist was Dianaa's hairdresser for ten years, acting as both her beauty and fashion consultant.
In the summer of 1990, Diana asked the advice of hairstylist Sam McKnight about updating her appearance. He suggested cutting her hair short.
The newly flattering style looked very sophisticated and modern. The new look reflected her way of life of a fashionable, professional working woman. Diana’s short, layered cut soon became her signature look: simple, sophisticated and glamorous.
