At Simply Skin Laser Medispa, licensed medical aesthetician Sabrina J. Kharouba and Dr. Tamir Kharouba rely on lasers and private-label products to reintroduce clients to their younger, smoother selves. Prior to any facials or nonablative-laser treatments, Sabrina consults with clients to talk about their beauty goals. She then customizes a treatment directed toward a range of skin conditions, such as acne, unwanted hair, or wrinkles. A range of private-label Simply Skin products blend vitamins and antioxidants with green tea, white tea, and soy extracts. On-premise physician Tamir oversees treatments, allowing him to monitor procedures for safety and episodes of M_A_S*H for things a doctor would never say.
"Hair, make up, fashion and photography play a very important role in my professional life as a beauty creator. The synergistic mix of these industries helps to channel my creative process to fully understand the complexities of women and men.

The stylists at Bespoke Barber Shop may average 20 years of experience in grooming their diverse clientele, but their studio layout makes it look like they have second careers in interior design. The decor emanates both vintage and modern vibes, illustrated by the classic barber chairs with sleek armrests and the modern graffiti art positioned above framed black-and-white photos of a bygone era. Hanging within viewing distance of the waiting area’s leather sofa, flat-screen televisions play ESPN and live sports over the hum of trimmers and the swipes of straight razors. From scissor-cuts to mohawks, fade to tapers, stylists reinvent scalps of men, women, and children alike. In addition to touting its tress management skills, the shop uses old-school barber techniques of high-quality shaves and cuts, infusing it with new-school style. Bespoke has also garnered a following from high-profile heads, including the Yankees' own Mario Rivera.
