Like an iceberg, beauty mostly resides below the surface, but only its visible portion can gain the attention of an ocean liner. Look shipshape with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get a makeover package at A Beautiful Reflection and Day Spa in Turlock (a $92 value). The makeover includes the following:
- An eyebrow wax (a $12 value)
- A hairstyle with a shampoo and blow-dry (a $30 value)
- A makeup application (a $50 value)
At A Beautiful Reflection and Day Spa, staffers beautify visitors with a slew of spa services delivered with enthusiasm, expertise, and high-end cosmetics from Youngblood and M·A·C. Before makeovers, staffers meet with clients to discuss their ideal looks, whether preparing for a glamorous party or a sobering graduation from art school. An eyebrow wax shapes brows into flattering arcs before a stylist suds locks with olfactory-pleasing products, blow-dries wet tresses, and styles them until they bounce and shine like the mane of a shellacked carousel pony. To complete the new look, makeup artists paint faces with flattering hues from a toolbox brimming with high-end makeup. Youngblood’s mineral composition allows it to reflect light, glowing over lines and blemishes and protecting skin from the sun’s rays. The versatile pigments of M·A·C cosmetics make them popular among models during New York Fashion Week, as well as for actors in big-budget films and posh haunted houses.
A Beautiful Reflection & Day Spa
Diamond dust might sound like something movie stars brush off their furniture, but at A Beautiful Reflection & Day Spa, owner Kerry Strickland knows better. She uses the dust to exfoliate her clients' skin during diamond dermabrasion treatments, polishing away fine lines and light acne scars without aluminum oxide crystals, which can be irritating to the skin. But the results aren't dependent on diamonds alone—Kerry and her team of aestheticians carefully analyze and question each patron's complexion before and after each facial, chemical peel, or other exfoliating treatment, and then point the way toward Dermalogica products best suited to the patron’s particular problems.
Not content to limit their expertise to faces, the team at A Beautiful Reflection also offers custom hairstyles, nail services, and waxing to help clients feel better about what they see––or don't see––in the mirror. The salon's Bronze Biologic spray tans provide a finishing touch to any makeover and use a nontoxic, fast-drying formula to help bodies achieve a sun-kissed glow without taking the sun to dinner and a movie first.
