SOUTH AKRON — Mod, A Salon & Gift Gallery is a full-service salon for men, women and children and includes a gift shop located at 357 Reed Ave.

Owner Tara Koontz said she grew up in the Firestone Park area and is happy to bring the 9-year-old business to the location. She said she recently purchased the building her business is located in because she decided she wanted to stay in the area, and area merchants hope to create the next Highland Square there.

“You don’t have to travel out of the area to get salon services,” she said. “We are conveniently located near the library and a school.”

Mod, A Salon offers a variety of hair, nail and massage services. The hair services include cuts, coloring, highlights, straightening and styling, according to Koontz.

“We feature a Deva-certified stylist specially trained to cut curly hair,” she added. “We also carry the full Deva line of products, as well as other salon-quality hair care products”

The salon also offers manicures, pedicures, nail enhancements and shellac polishing. Koontz said shellac polishing is one of its most popular services, and the salon’s nail manager, Gina Cella, is an industry-wide instructor and expert on this service. Nail care products also are available for purchase.

Mod, A Salon also offers a variety of massages and spa packages.

Appointments for hair and nail services are available days, evenings and weekends. To make an appointment, call 330-724-9040.

Koontz said when she purchased the building, some extra space opened up for the business and she decided to add a small gift gallery to the business. The gift gallery features items handmade by local and other American artists.

“This seemed like a good fit,” she said. “We have unique gift items such as jewelry, greeting cards, baby gifts and more.”

Store hours are Tuesdays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
