Kesha Lambert Photography and the AboutFace Makeup Artist Network teamed up to create Lash to Lens, a one-stop shop for customized portraiture and modern lifestyle photography. Published in the New York Times, Boston Herald, and OK! magazine, Kesha Lambert and her supporting cast of savvy shutterbugs create a relaxed and fun environment for capturing life’s most memorable moments, whether it be a candid family photo, a sizzling boudoir portrait, or a reproduction of The Last Supper starring a litter of beagles. Each session is tailored to the client’s style and personality, incorporating clever props and interesting locales to create a customized photo shoot as unique as the subjects it snaps. AboutFace’s senior makeup artist, Charlene Armstrong, uses top-quality beauty products to hide blemishes, eliminate shine, conceal red eyes, and distract attention from obtrusive bunny ears, resulting in camera-ready countenances.
The skincare experts at Advanced Aesthetic Solutions draw on 32 years of combined experience to promote healthy, beautiful complexions. Their custom facial treatments are tailor-made to address each face’s particular concerns, whether clients suffer from acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, or uneven tone. An office specialty, the HydraFacial sees aestheticians infusing the skin with nutrient-rich vitamins, antioxidants, and hydrating serums in a process designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, enlarged pores and brown spots. What’s more, the moisturizing treatment is suitable for all skin types including dry, oily, or sharkskin and yields no irritation or downtime.
Since introducing the FDA-approved, noninvasive VelaShape II technology to Westchester County residents in 2009, Synergy's licensed and certified staff has helped numerous bodies tone, tighten, and break free from lumpy fat cells. Working in a clean, upscale clinic, technicians bathe problem areas in a potent combination of mechanical massage, bi-polar frequency, infrared light, and suction to safely drain fat cells and sculpt limbs without subjecting clients to Michelangelo-esque temper tantrums. Additionally, because treatments don't break skin like classic liposuction, clients experience minimal downtime and can save Big Bird band-aids for decorating their cars' exteriors. VelaShape II takes no longer than 30 minutes per session and yields best results after an average of four–six treatments.

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.
Inside Stefanie's Hair Studio, eye-catching chandeliers and marble-topped work stations add to the highly trained stylists' sophistication. From behind sleek black salon chairs, they cut, color, and curl strands into new looks that complement their clients’ face shapes and favorite decades.
