Owner, Ashley Lauren Beauty Lounge

“Creating is my passion, whether it be a full face of makeup or a company that people can trust in,” says Ashley L. Cermele, award-winning makeup artist (The Knot Best of Weddings, Best of Westchester) and owner of Ashley Lauren Beauty Lounge, a full-service hair-and-makeup salon in Tuckahoe. Cermele, who trained professionally at the Make-up Designory, started her own company at age 25. Ashley Lauren Makeup Services was an on-location hair-and-makeup service that provided glam for special events, primarily weddings. As the demand for her services grew, so did her team. In 2016, Cermele opened her eponymous salon in her hometown, and the 29-year-old now employs several stylists, including a bridal team. Cermele has developed a loyal following of customers who visit for birthdays, photo shoots, weddings, and baby showers. In the year since her salon opened, she’s welcomed more than 1,500 customers. Cermele says, “Every day, I work tirelessly to continue growing my dream and do all I can to ensure my clients’ and team’s satisfaction.”
