Celebrity hairstylist Sam McKnight MBE is hosting a Wig Exhibition at Selfridges in London.

Running until 25 September, the "retrospective" exhibition showcases a selection of McKnight's most iconic looks, including eight wigs from his styling archive.

The presentation features looks from Lady Gaga, Lindsey Wixson and Karlie Kloss, alongside recreations of "era-defining" runway shows such as Chanel, Fendi, Vivienne Westwood and Dries Van Noten.

Each look hopes to share insight into McKnight's fashion show heritage.

"Selfridges saw my wig archive in the studio whilst we were on a zoom call and it planted the idea," he said.

"The wig display is one of the first things people comment on in our studio, and its brilliant to open it up to let everyone see them.

"It feels amazing to have such a prominent display in the best department store in the world."
