|The stylists learned the latest in upstyle trends for special events and weddings at a training with Orlando Pita. They are very excited to bring these new ideas and trends to their clients at the Wingate.
For the last two decades, Orlando Pita has been a master of hair styles and fashions, the theatrical as well as the more realistic. Chances are that everyone who is reading this has seen numerous examples of his work. Pita styles hair for celebrities from Madonna and Janet Jackson to Gwyneth Paltrow and Julianne Moore. His work has graced magazine covers such as the Italian, French, British, and American editions of Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar, and Allure, and he has worked with such noted fashion photographers as Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Mario Testino.
Many of his most extreme and fabulous hair designs were created for the fashion runway. Pita has created looks for Michael Kors, Versace, Prada, Miu Miu, Christian Dior, Valentino, Gucci, Narcisco Rodriguez, Tommy Hilfiger, and Dolce & Gabbana, and has also designed hair for rising designers such as Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam. Pita has worked with John Galliano for over six years; and it took him three days to create the incredible, flat, square hairstyle worn by models for the 2004 Egyptianthemed Dior Couture show. Declaring that he missed actually cutting hair, Orlando Pita opened his own salon in January 2005, in New York’s meatpacking district.
