When it comes to making people look and feel beautiful, there's little the team at A Beautiful Reflection can't do. Owner Kerry Corduck has amassed a staff of aestheticians, massage therapists, hair stylists, and nail technicians, and Kelly herself is an eye-brow and makeup artist and a specialist in custom facials and microdermabrasion. That talent of the staff is matched by the quality tools and products they rely on, including skin care products by Dermalogica, mineral makeup by Youngblood, and an all-natural spray tan formula by Bronze Biologic. Of course, sometimes it's not the treatments themselves, but the little extras that make clients feel special. And so, A Beautiful Reflection also plans beauty-themed parties, including makeovers for weddings, proms, and traffic court appearances, and kids' parties that include mani-pedis, punch, and cake and cupcakes.

Whether she's drawing a teeny black bow or coating nails in a bright gel polish?which stays chip-free for up to 14 days?Rashel helps clients express their personality in a subtle way, unlike shouting their online dating profile through a megaphone. She performs all of her services inside the Polished Nail Boutique.
Singer Katy Perry is known for her candy-colored makeup and over-the-top outfits; it only makes sense that her hairstyles should be just as attention-grabbing. One of the hairstyles she favors—peekaboo highlights that show from beneath layers of hair—are a specialty for Katalyn, a stylist at Mane Attraction Salon. Katalyn's other specialties include chic haircuts, ombre color, and microbead extensions. Smoothing keratin treatments keep hair looking sleek between appointments.
