What are your favorite René Furterer products? Why?
I really do love them all! I especially love the René Furterer KARITE products for dry hair; as a lot of my clientele had chemical treatments, the dry hair products are essential to me, such as the leave-in/no rinse conditioner, intense nourishing conditioning cream and intense nourishing shampoo and COMPLEXE 5. Also love the NATURIA dry shampoo and VOLUMEA volumizing foam! These are all my favorites and the ones my clients need and request the most.
Why did you choose René Furterer?
I was introduced to the products in Paris about eight years ago and fell in love! I use the products on both myself and my clients and have tried several different types of products from the company and loved them all. Since then, I always knew that one day, when I opened my own salon, René Furterer would be the retail partner I would go with. I just adore the exclusivity, name and history of the company.

From sleekly styling the tresses of such stars as Naomi Campbell, Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow and Rihanna, to crafting the hair designs on runways of such legendary fashion hours as Christian Dior, hairstylist, Amoy has established herself as an authority on all things beauty and style.
A New York beauty industry veteran, Amoy 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 – Amoy 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, Amoy styled the house’s legendary designer John Galliano’s own hair for his final bow. Soon after, Galliano himself began requesting Amoy as his personal hairstylist. Fashion maven Donatella Versace was next in line, and the rest is history…
From there, Amoy was in-demand worldwide, styling hair for editorials and fashion shows, and transforming the looks of supermodels, Hollywood starlets, iconic fashion designers, Grammy award-wining musicians and, of course, Amoy’s everyday clients at her modest East Village salon in New York City. Today, her impressive clientele includes Iman, Kerry Washington, Mary J. Blige, Joy Bryant, Selita Ebanks and Maggie Rizer.
