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.
Within the full-service Salon Elle, guests get pampered with hair and nail treatments while soaking up bright waves of natural light pouring through large windows. The salon’s stylists offer a variety of color treatments to enhance cuts, including touchups, glazes, SoCap hair extensions, Brazilian blowouts, and partial or full highlights. Other services include waxing to remove unwanted hair from areas such as the eyebrows, upper lip, or chin, as well as manicures, pedicures, and keratin treatments.
The Lunaz Salon staff is highly trained in both dry and wet cuts, crafting new styles that range from trendy to classic. The stylists also apply highlights and lowlights and offer corrective-color treatments. Additionally, clients can treat themselves to soothing massages or have unwanted hair removed with waxing services in the salon's modern and upscale surroundings. Aestheticians also treat first-time salon guests to a complimentary eyebrow threading, when not combined with any other offers or promotions.

At Hernan Prada Hair, even a simple trim is a personalized opus. The stylists here all have trained in a specialized cutting technique that snips hair according to how it naturally falls rather than taking off a designated number of inches at a 90-degree angle. The result is a custom cut that flatters each guest's hair type and face. The team takes the same kind of meticulous approach to color treatments, which range from multidimensional bi-tone hues to hand painted balayage highlights, a more precise alternative to foils. The salon also stocks organic products from Surface.
The man behind these careful methods, Hernan Prada, has devoted most of his life to perfecting them. He began working as a stylist's apprentice in Argentina at age 16. At Llongueras—known for receiving such clients as the Spanish royal family and Salvador Dalí—Hernan accrued enough know-how to move to New York and open his own venue. Now, the Scarsdale Patch reports that he's styled models for Hermes and Valentino, among other companies. Despite his closeness to celebrity, he runs Hernan Prada Hair as an inviting setting for everyday guests and eco-friendly practices.
