Me, Amoy & My Ombre Weave!

Girls! Today The Fly Cut launches it’s second featured salon, Amoy Couture Hair! Now, if you haven’t heard of seriously sought-after celeb weavologist, Amoy Pitters, allow me to introduce her: She’s simply the genius behind some of the best ‘dos in celebdom — Naomi, Iman, Selita, Joy Bryant, Joan Smalls, and on and on. Basically, if you’re black and at all glamorous, Madame Pitters has had something to do with your hair. Plus, she’s just cool as shit.

And because she’s so maje, we simply had to offer some serious deals to her services — not just a weave with the master (mistress?), but also a wash and cut!! Hit www.theflycut.com to get into our unbelievable discounts.

The other thing about Amoy? She’s gorgeous, and has some seriously aspirational hair. This is great for business, because clients come in and want her hair. I am not immune. Earlier this spring (before I chopped my locks into a lob), I stopped by Amoy’s and fell in love with her stunning ombre sitch. I needed it — but since half of my hair was relaxed, I wasn’t trying to add bleach on top of it.

Amoy, shrugging: Let’s give you an ombre weave, then.

Me: A…weave? But I’ve never had a weave! I’m both terrified and titillated right now!

Amoy: You act like you’re getting some around-the-way look, with synthetic hair and an awkward closure. It’s an Amoy weave, you know I’ll hook it up.


I was convinced. And she did hook it up. It was crazy, because the actual weave was the same length as my hair, and the Indian hair looked like mine post-blowout — so it really looked natural. Especially since she left out my front layers and about an inch along the nape of my neck. That way, I could pull it up in a pony and no one was the wiser. I loved it! The cornrows took getting used to, I must say. I slept with a fine-tooth comb in my fist, so I could scratch my scalp with the sharp part all night. ** DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME **



I loooved it! I rocked it from March to May. Sooo great for transitioning. Having most of my hair braided up allowed it to grow safely and protected it from mad heat-styling and random environmental damage.  When she took out the weave, my hair was softer than ever…and shockingly long. Check out the whole thing, here…and go get your Amoy on!!

    How was the upkeep? Did you wash and style yourself while you and it in, or did you go to your regular salon?

    I washed and styled at home, actually! It was so easy…it actually saved me money. Since the hair dries pretty straight naturally, I just had to run a flatiron through it, and go. And I’d just blow-out the front pieces that were mine. I sooo recommend it.

    Love this style! I am looking to try the Ombre’ look. Did she dye the extensions or did you purchase colored hair?

    This look is fabulous. What length hair did she use to create that length? 14″?16″? Its a perfect length. Also what brand/make of hair was it?
