Meet Amoy Pitters

Celebrity Hair Stylist, Extensions Master

Amoy Pitters, a name that resonates through the bustling streets of Manhattan and beyond, is renowned as a weft master and a force within the beauty industry. Since 1998, her salon on the Upper East Side has attracted models, actresses, beauty mavens, and other influential women. She caters to every hair type and texture, and she's the go-to pro for those seeking to create their own star look. She is bold and unapologetic in her pursuit of life's finer things. Amoy's diverse travel experiences add a cosmopolitan flair to everything she touches. A fashion maven in her own right, she consistently redefines her style with each season, spotlighting her own line of couture hair extensions as the epitome of beauty and sophistication.

Her work has appeared in Vogue, W, Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Vanity Fair, O The Oprah Magazine, ESSENCE and British Vogue and on the runway at Chanel, Versace, Burberry, Oscar de la Renta, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rodarte, Missoni and Hermes, just to name few. She’s a celebrity mainstay on the red carpet for Naomi Campbell, Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow, Mariah Carey, Chanel Iman, Kerry Washington, Alfre Woodard, Joy Bryant and Joan Smalls.

Mentored by industry icon Odile Gilbert, Amoy launched her impressive career as a go-to hairstylist in the fashion industry, booking her first fashion show in Paris, Christian Dior couture collection in January 1998. She styled the house’s legendary designer John Galliano for his final bow and her career skyrocketed. Soon after, Galliano himself began requesting Amoy as his personal hairstylist. Fashion maven Donatella Versace followed suit and not only booked Amoy as her personal stylist but engaged her to create the look for her collections. Today, with beauty campaigns for DSquared, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton as well as film-work and popular TV shows under her belt, this style-maker is leading the way forward.

Amazing salon with amazing staff. Amoy colored and styled my hair. Janet did my shampoo and rinse. Both treated my hair with such tender care. The salon is very a relaxing space. I had no idea my hair could look so good! As soon as I stepped out the salon I had random strangers compliment my hair. Amoy is truly gifted!

Satisfaction! Satisfaction! Satisfaction! My experience as a first time guest was simply incredible. I scheduled a one on one consultation about hair extensions, then shown products for my style of choice. I couldn't be most happiest with the outcome. Service was fast, comfortable in a relaxed setting I'd definitely recommend this salon to all divas, trust me you won't be disappointed.

This was the best experience I've ever had in a hair salon. No joke! I have curly hair and I get so much anxiety getting my hair done b/c they pull and yank at tame it into submission. But not here. They love my hair and I can tell they understand it. Amoy talked with me and we discussed my concerns... gray hair and thinning hair... I didn't want to use ammonia to dye my hair...and I want to be able to wear my hair both curly and straight. She was so knowledgeable. I felt like I got a little education on how to best treat it and work with my hair. And I'm telling you her manner is so calming and warm I could have hung out there all day. (But alas I had to go back to work) My color came out amazing... my hair is shinny and bouncy. (No gray!) Her team is amazing... I loved every minute of it
Salon Review
Amoy is an AMAZING stylist. She has transformed my hair. Amoy possesses an incredible skill set that truly sets her apart in her field. Thanks to her, I can go from natural to weave seamlessly. She does a brilliant Brazilian. Her weaves are so natural, they are undetectable. But what sets her apart is her ability to cut and style.

AMOY literally changed my life today! I wasn't feeling myself and needed a change. She listened to all my concerns and transformed my look. I couldn't believe how beautiful my hair came out. I am someone who has no experience with weaves or extensions she made me feel so comfortable. No question was considered stupid she answered everything with kindness (educated me). She is worth every penny. I saved her contact in my phone as Amoy the GOAT. I can't wait to come back. The salon was spotless and so clean I have never been in a salon so well kept. What a gem.
