Balms Away: The Secret To Eye Makeup Removal

Balms Away: The Secret To Eye Makeup Removal


We have all been there before, we finally find a mascara or eyeliner that doesn’t run and now we can’t get it off! At least not without irritation and burning. Eye makeup removal can really be the worst. Especially when you find a makeup product you love only to be reluctant to use it because it is hard to get off without damaging your skin. ​

Forget eye makeup removers if your eyes are sensitive. Using them on sensitive eyes can leave you looking like you have been crying for days. AND the burning! Oh the burning that can last for what feels like forever. Sometimes it feels as if you just poured acid on your eyelids. NO THANK YOU!!

?​ ?​

This was until the discovery of Balms Away!! When you get your hands on this magic makeup remover, you will find yourself thinking, “Where has this been all my life?” FINALLY!! No more burning your eyes to get off that eyeliner that wants to stay for days.


Balms Away is THE Eye Makeup Break-Up! Just take a dollop and apply to your closed eye. Keep your eye closed! Start to move the product around in a circular motion allowing the makeup to break up. Do this for about 30 seconds or so. Wipe away with a soft tissue.

That’s it!! Balms Away!!

3 Must Haves For Your Pool Bag

3 Must Haves For You Pool Bag

Summertime is right around the corner. ☀️​ It’s that time of year to be carefree, enjoy the sun, and spend as much time at the pool as possible!! ?​?​

So you’ve picked out the perfect suit, the perfect sunglasses, and of course you have your towel and sunscreen already packed in your pool bag. You slip on your flip-flops and are ready to head to the pool for a day in the sun! WAIT! What about your hair? Here are 3 must haves for  your pool bag that you can’t leave home without!

  1. Detangler- Wetting down those beautiful locks and spraying in a leave in conditioner before getting into the pool is always a great idea. Why you ask? This helps your hair absorb less chlorine. Chlorine, as we all know, is not our hair’s best friend and can fade our color. If you are like us, you just invested good money and time into getting the perfect balayage, so protect it from that awful chlorine. Team Mod recommends Unite 7 Seconds. 7 Seconds is an amazing detangler and adds moisture.
  2. Clarifying Shampoo- Once you get out of the pool it is best to shampoo your hair in the bathhouse to ensure there is absolutely no chlorine in your hair. We recommend Unite Weekender. The Weekender is a gentle cleanser that removes impurities while still being safe for that balayage. Follow with the 7 Seconds leave in.
  3. Sea Salt Spray- Leave the pool ready for anything!! Sea salt spray is a fun product to use to create beach-like texture. We recommend Unite Beach Day. What we love about Beach Day is that it is a hybrid styler meaning it can be sprayed in wet and left to air dry AND can be used once it is dry for finishing.

Read on to see what makes The Original Beauty Blender so magical!




You’ve heard the rumors about a magical makeup sponge that leaves your foundation looking flawless and you think to yourself, “Could this be for real?” The team here at Mod Hair Color Salon & Beauty Store is here to say, “Yes! It is real!”

So what is this magical makeup sponge? It is The Original Beauty Blender and we love it! ❤️​ We have tried to carry The Original Beauty Blender in our beauty store for the last year and finally in March we were approved to carry it. We were ecstatic!!

FINALLY!! We could recommend the very thing our guests were asking us about for the last year. We tried other imposters and were left to the same conclusion, Beauty Blender is were its’s at!!

So what makes it so different? Our simple answer is, it just is! However, if you want to know the technology behind it here are the key points that make The Original Beauty Blender THE Magical Makeup Sponge!!
1. The Material – The material that it is made out of ensures that makeup sits on the surface of the sponge giving you smoother, more uniform blending.

2. The Egg Design – The egg shape design guarantees effortless blending in both small and large areas.

3. The Flawless Look – There are no edges this sponge which eliminates lines and streaks that other sponges leave behind.

4. Minimum Water Retention – It has an open cell structure that only allows the sponge to absorb what is necessary for the perfect makeup application.
Now the next big question is, Which Beauty Blender Do I Choose? ?​ STOP in to Mod’s Beauty Store and let one of our makeup enthusiasts help you decide which one would work in your beauty regimen.

Everyone’s A Model At Mod: Why We Love Instagram

EVERYONE’S A MODEL AT MOD : Why  We Love Instagram


Read on to see why Team Mod LOVES Instagram and what types of shots they like to take of their work?



It’s no secret Mod Hair Color Salon & Beauty Store loves color. However there is one thing we love even more and that is to show it off on our Instagram page!!

Why you ask? Because it helps the rest of our community know what amazing work we do. With social media being all the rage these days it is the fastest and easiest way to get the word out aside from your personal referrals. Each one of our Expert Colorists here at Mod Hair Color Salon & Beauty Store has their own Instagram portfolio where they feature their best work. Mod also has a salon Instagram page where we show case our favorites from each of our Expert Colorists.

That is why we created our very own photo area where YOU the guest get to show off your modeling skills. Have no fear, if you are uncomfortable with us getting a full on face shot we will just take a picture of your gorgeous locks from behind.

Here’s a list of shots we like to take when photographing your beautiful new color:

Take a side shot- This shows off the cut and color from a more interesting angle. We may ask you to move your head in what feels like a strange way, just know it may feel weird but we are getting an awesome shot of your hair!

Take a shot of the back of your head- We generally ask you to look up at the ceiling so we can get an amazing shot of the movement of color within your hair.

Taking a front facing shot- Why would we like to get a front facing shot? Because we like to get a photo of how happy you are with your new color. ?​ Don’t worry, if you do not want us to take a picture from the front we won’t.

Take a video- A video you ask? Yes, VIDEO is awesome! With all of the cool new iPhone features on the 7 plus we are able to take slow-mo and time lapse videos that make a shake of the hair look AMAZING!!

So when you are in the salon and you see what looks like a photoshoot happening, you are witnessing every Mod guests modeling debut.
