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.
At Skin Clinic, owner Maria Anello Aponte creates an environment in which clients are treated holistically to address skin conditions that are often squelched with plastic surgery. During complimentary consultations, skincare professionals analyze each client's skin type while taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, and their complete medical history. With this all-encompassing view in mind, the spa's team designs treatments specific to each person's needs and desires. For instance, the aestheticians can recommend noninvasive skin-tightening treatments such as SmoothSculpt, which tones skin around the jowls and neck and smoothes away wrinkles without using any starch. Additionally, they educate their clients on how best to care for their skin on a day-to-day basis. The center's experts may also help boost self-confidence by reducing concerns associated with sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation by administering rejuvenating facials, microdermabrasions, or chemical peels.
If humans were shaped like perfect rectangles, tanning would be easy. But since human bodies consist of various curves and nooks, the team at Tropical Lights Tanning Salon has acquired ergonomic tanning beds with built-in facial bulbs. Custom airbrush tans also adapt to body shapes, with expert technicians bronzing clients evenly and naturally.
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.
At more than 140 locations across the country, tanners stand and Hollywood Tans delivers. Each salon has an average of 15 Hollywood Tans–manufactured standup booths that gilt pelts with high-performance bulbs, resulting in speedy tans. Since each location offers so many booths, no appointments are needed and clients are rarely asked to wait around or scrounge for scraps of sunlight. For a UV-free experience, the salons furnish their glow spas with Mystic Tan, a standup spray-tan booth that operates at four levels in less than a minute. To keep hides healthy, the shops stock their own brand of lotions, skincare products, and shower gels.
