SOUTH AKRON — Mod, A Salon & Gift Gallery is a full-service salon for men, women and children, as well as a gift shop that features local area artists. The business is located at 357 Reed Ave.

Owner Tara Koontz said she grew up in the Firestone Park area and opened the business there in 2004. She said she recently purchased the building her business is located in because she decided she wanted to stay in the area.

“You don’t have to travel out of the area to get quality salon services or products,” said Koontz about her business. “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 two Deva-certified stylists 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 and pedicures, nail enhancements and shellac and the brand new Vinylux products by CND. Koontz said shellac and Vinylux polishing are one of the 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.

Appointments for hair and nail services are available Tuesdays through Saturdays. To make an appointment, call 330-724-9040.

Gift certificates for services are available.

Koontz said the small gift gallery was added to the business after she purchased the building and found some extra space open up. 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 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
