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.
The skin and body experts at A Beautiful Reflection and Day Spa found a kindred spirit in turn-of-the-century scientist Marie Carmichael Stopes, who pointed out that "You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing." With genuine joie de vivre, A Beauty Reflection’s six women go about their favorite tasks, leaving guest's bodies smooth, relaxed, and decorated with cosmetic details that reflect their personal style. Their ebullience has bubbled over from private sessions into parties, which can focus on tanning for adults or incorporate cake and punch in spa days for kids. To cultivate that inner quality so important to Stopes, the team has organized drives for the homeless in which they exchange their services for charitable donations.
Headlines International Salon’s well-rounded crew of stylists brings its many talents together to renovate outmoded ‘dos, consulting with clients before tailoring new hairstyles based on personal tastes. Amid a chorus of snipping scissors and friendly conversation, guests sidle up to styling stations where bilingual hairdressers chop away split ends, moisturize parched strands with deep-conditioning treatments, and blow-dry freshly sheared locks into bouncy styles. Along with their signature salon services, beauticians also whisk away unwanted fuzz on upper lips and eyebrows using wax––a much better method of hair removal than standing dangerously close to a shuttle launch.
A certified massage therapist, Jamie Faria performs multiple modalities and services designed to heal and detox the body. Jamie’s relaxation massages soothe muscles, while athletic and deep-tissue massages can more easily target specific issues and improve the body’s future performance, be it in playing football or running from a ref who claims massage tables don’t belong on a football field. Alternatively, she also offers spray-tanning services as well as detox body wraps and ear-candling sessions, which use aromatic lavender candles.
Within the vintage-bent confines of Breton Salon, friendly and accommodating staff members have but one simple goal: to pamper clients from head to toe. Even basic mani-pedi services include spa enhancements, including salt scrubs, hot-towel treatments, soaks with callous removal, paraffin dips, and massages for all 20 digits and the playdough that attaches them to the body.
