Stylists at Amoy Couture Hair clip strands into high-fashion coifs tested and approved by salon owner Amoy Pitters on her own sleek locks. Accomplished tress-tamers consult with clients about their hair type and styling needs before lathering up hair in a delicate shampoo, finished by a soothing scalp massage to set even the most stressed of substitute-teacher strands at ease. Depending on individual hair types, stylists prepare and apply a customized conditioning treatment using René Furterer products, including the deep-conditioning Karité cream, penetrating each strand with citrusy aroma and rich moisture from shea butter and quince extracts. Colorizing coiffeurs can streak newly supple strands with a half-head highlight, adding a striking contract that mimics natural sun blanching. Once the treatment is rinsed clean, stylists clip, blow-dry, and style hair as desired, employing high fashion strategies to frame faces as carefully as the Mona Lisa or Roger Rabbit.
The salon’s modern, sunlight-strewn décor alternates between dark wood and pearl-white chairs and fixtures, the entire scene blossoming with the radiance of white orchids and crystal chandeliers. Large windows allow shafts of sunlight to sluice in from the outdoors, where it is quickly captured and bottled into an all-natural self-tanner.

Pearl-white salon chairs and a chandeliered foyer create a calm elegance that parallels Amoy's penchant for creating striking, creative hairstyles. A random sampling of the master stylist's resumé inevitably reads like a beauty-school student's wish list. Highlights include serving as the go-to hair guru of Christian Dior runway walkers, spearheading her own successful product line, and separate stints as the personal hairstylist for fashion titans John Galliano and Donatella Versace. Today Amoy uses the salon as a home turf, revamping the tresses of both walk-in clients and celebrities such as Sheryl Crow, Rihanna, and Naomi Campbell.
