Hi my name is Kristi Bitetti. I recently relocated to Charlotte from NY and I have decided to continue my hair journey in Ballantyne by opening a suite in Salon Lofts. I bring 30+ years of knowledge and experience to my profession. I obtained a Master Goldwell Colorist certification through Goldwell academy in Baltimore, and attend advanced education courses regularly to keep not just my scissors sharp but my eye, as well. My favorite service to preform is any type of coloring service, and even combining techniques such as balayage, teasylights, foilyage, highlights and babylights on one canvas. I’m proud to share that my work was one of the top 25 finalists chosen from 725 entries in Goldwell’s 5th project Glossy International Competition. 


One of the most rewarding aspects of being a colorist is a color challenge. I absolutely love them! It makes me feel incredible when a client comes in with compromised color and leaves looking (and feeling) completely transformed.

Their entire demeanor changes, and they radiate confidence. I love knowing I had a hand in creating that feeling. I am not limited or partial to any one color of balayages, highlights, teasylights, foilyages or babylights. I will create caramel highlights to icy balayages, deep red foilyages to copper highlights. I work with your skin tone and natural hair color to determine what is best for you. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead hit that schedule button!if you can’t find a time that works out for you, text me directly and I can take a look!


I am so excited for this new journey, and I can’t wait to meet you!

I came to Kristi after another salon ruined my poor hair. Kristi and her assistant, Shi, were extremely accommodating and understanding. They were able to bring me in quickly and start to repair the damage. My hair was fried, broken, and blotchy with bleach and color. They worked so hard to revive what was left and gave me a fun soft pink/lavender with brunette root shadow! I’m so grateful to her for being willing to save it and not just cut it off. I cannot stress enough how incredible Kristi is, I will be following her instructions to bring my hair back to health and coming back to see her routinely!! Book with her, you will not regret it!

After hours of research on colorists I was blessed to find Kristi Bitetti. Setting up a consultation allowed me to show pictures, discuss the color, and the true look I was going for! Kristi and Shi (her awesome artist in training) delivered so much more than I asked for! I am so so so pleased with my buttery blonde bayalage and money piece. I never thought I could have my hair this good and truly makes me love myself ia little more

Kristi is an incredible hair stylist!! She listened to what I wanted from the adorable haircut to the beautifully executed balayage, foilayage, and teasy lights. I can't say enough of how thrilled I am with my hair and highly recommend her and her stylist in training Shy who was lovely and gave the best shampoos and toning applications.

Kristi is AMAZING!!! What she does with color is literally mind blowing. I came in with an assortment of significantly different pictures and she explained the differences of each and helped me decide what was best for me. I had box dye on my hair that had basically turned orange that she COMPLETELY fixed and got rid of the pretty bad damage. She always takes her time and is a perfectionist in the best way. The other thing I LOVE about Kristi is that she is super honest and will make recommendations and provide options catered to your hair/face/style (which I always need). I am elated that Kristi is now in Charlotte and I will go to her forever! Shy (her assistant) is also awesome and makes the whole experience so enjoyable :)

Charlotte - you are so lucky! Kristi has been my stylist for most of my adult life. She’s taken me from a short pixie style for many years to helping me be brave enough to grow out my hair to shoulder length and color it. Whether balayage, root smudging, or just covering the gray, she knows what she’s doing and will have you feeling (and looking) absolutely beautiful when you walk out of her salon.

Found my hair person! I found Kristi after moving from out of state and having a horrible experience with a stylist that left my hair a color mess. Kristi has turned my hair around in one visit! So happy with my hair and can’t wait for where she will take it in the future. She is very knowledgeable and gives you her full attention. Thank you Kristi!

I came to Kristi having no real direction of where I wanted to take my hair, I just knew I wanted it blonder. She understood my hair damages easily and took the whole morning - into the afternoon - to create beautifully blended colors I couldn’t have even imagined! She also used nice treatments on my hair to ensure it holds up the color and stays as healthy as it can be. If you are looking for a new stylist who just “gets it”, and actually cares about the health of your hair and your happiness when you style it, - Kristi is the girl for you! I got so many compliments on my hair at work
