Be­hind Bowie’s great­est hair­cut

New­ton’s dis­tinc­tive 1930s-style, vivid red hair was de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Bafta win­ning hair­styl­ist Martin Sa­muel. “Bowie re­quested the range of colour that I could get in Lon­don, be­cause he couldn’t get it in the States,” he tells SFX. “When I ar­rived we de­vel­oped the hair­cut. It’s be­come an iconic im­age over the last 40 years. David asked me, very gra­ciously, to stay with him for the Sta­tion To Sta­tion tour, right un­til he moved to Ger­many. We cut the whole thing off and he had that short blond hair. It was nice be­cause no one else took over New­ton’s look.”
