Faces of Astarte, owned and operated by Christine Shahin, is an Eco-Zen Salon & Spa. Faces of Astarte uses and provides to the public all natural and certified organic products that are effective and produce desired results! The salon’s clients seek natural, non-invasive beauty options for many reasons: they may be chemically sensitive, have cancer or other severe illnesses, or perhaps they are ecologically concerned, or seek therapeutic beauty.

In addition to its salon and spa service, Faces of Astarte offers numerous weekly life-enhancing classes and seminars, to include:

Christine is passionate about Personal Body & Planetary Ecology's, where they intersect and co-create. She has been a forerunner in ecological beauty, having founded one of the first all-natural salons in central New York in 1990. By embracing her passions, her intention is to guide seekers to discover their personal beauty through natural health, non-toxic products, and cultural traditions that will in turn build a strong eco-economy and contribute to a legacy of integrated healthy body and planetary ecologies.

Christine is the daughter of an Antiochian Orthodox Priest, wife and a mother of six grown children, advocate of ecological & local living economy, and human rights activist for over two decades. She has lived in Newport for 30 years, and her children attended and contributed to West Canada Valley School. Most recently, Christine ran for County office as the Green Party candidate for the 17th legislative district. Christine explain her passion for involvement, saying: "I am moved by the hydro-fracking issue, I am moved to bring more voices and more choices to elections, I am moved for a strong local economy which is dependent on a healthy ecology and moved to assist citizens in their lives."

Flash Flood Update - Thank You Volunteers!

It has been a little over a week since the flash floods of late June and early July devastated the Mohawk Valley and damaged many of the businesses in Little Falls. Fortunately, all of the businesses in Little Falls are now re-opened and serving the local community. We would like to sincerely thank the many, many volunteers from the area who came out and helped to clean up the mud and debris. It was hot, dirty, smelly work, and we greatly appreciate your selflessness and community spirit! It’s people like you make Little Falls and the Mohawk Valley one of the best places to live in the country!

Here are some more photos of the clean-up provided by Elaine Cobb, who tirelessly helped in the clean-up herself:

Businesses in Little Falls Dig Out after Flash Flooding

As you are aware, flash floods swept throughout the Mohawk Valley on June 28, 2013. Many businesses in Little Falls suffered property damage from the water and mud, and several businesses suffered heavy damage.

We are happy to report that most of the local businesses in Little Falls are back in operation, and ready to serve you. The business community of Little Falls would like to thank the many volunteers in the community who came out on Friday to help us dig out of the muck. We cannot name everyone who helped, in part because there were so many of you and in some cases you did not tell us your names, so let us extend a representative thank you to members of Main Street First, many of whom spent the entire day shoveling mud and cleaning up shelves. The spirit of neighbor helping neighbor that so many people in Little Falls brought to life makes us proud to call ourselves members of this proud community!

A big thanks to Darryl Harrington for providing the photos!
