From the chicly styled locks of Campbell, Iman

A New York beauty industry veteran, Pitters has had a passion, and natural talent, for the worlds of hair, beauty and fashion since the start of her career. Mentored by industry icon, Odile Gilbert
- and featured in the famed work "Her Style" - Pitters launched her impressive career as a sought-after hair stylist in the fashion industry, booking her career-first fashion show in Paris, styling the locks of the runway models for the Christian Dior
couture collection in January 1998. There, recognizing her unique skill set, she was asked by the show's production team to style the house's legendary designer John Galliano's
own hair for his final bow. Soon after, Galliano himself began requesting her as his personal hairstylist. Fashion maven Donatella Versace
was next in line, after taking notice of Galliano's newly styled locks.
From there, Pitters was in-demand worldwide, styling hair for editorials and fashion shows, and transforming the looks of supermodels, Hollywood starlets, iconic ashion designers, Grammy award-winning musicians and, of course, Pitter's everyday clients at her modest East Village salon in New York City. Today, her impressive clientele includes Alicia Keys
, Kerry Washington
, Mary J. Blige
, Joy Bryant
, Selita Ebanks
and Maggie Riser
Setting herself apart from others in the industry is Pitters's hands-on method to developing her techniques - unlike many stylists, Pitter practices her styling techniques on herself before applying them on clients. Following such an approach allows her to develop and discover new cuts, shapes and colors, ensuring that her style and vision are always evolving. One of Pitter's most sought-after signature styles is extensions. A style that is done through various methods, Pitter has perfected a number of techniques - sewn-in (a process in which the natural hair is braided into a cornrow and the extensions are sewn onto the braid; the natural locks are completely protected from coloring and styling and are able to go from short-to-long, or long-to-short, without cutting or altering its natural state); interlocking (a technique in which the client's hair is sewn down on the top of the weft; the process does not involve cornrowing, bonding, heat or adhesive and results in a very flexible style); and great length extensions (the method bonds individual extensions to sections of the natural hair with keratin, blending with the client's natural locks; the process does not involve sewing or gluing). Pitter's one-of-a-kind approach to this complicated beauty procedure is known for creating beautiful looks that are easily maintained, modified and recognized in the industry as her trademark.
