Modest Spot Salon
You know when you walk into a friend's house, and they have this perfect, but not over done decor. It's Comfortable, but super clean. You know, like it's totally their personality, but it could also be yours. Oh, you get what I'm talking about, then I'll get to my point. That's the Modest Spot Salon. Stephanie Carrillo Created the perfect artistic space, while still keeping things clean and minimal. She wanted a space where artists could come in and make it their own, create their own vision. In a space on Mariposa Ave in San Clemente, the clean walls, simple accents, and neon sign (gifted by a client who made it by hand) does all of this!
So what's with the product? Who do they carry? Why?
To start off with, on the shelves of Modest Spot you can expect to find boutique salon favorite R+Co! We love that we're starting to see this pop up in some of our favorite shops in the area! This is such an affordable range of really awesome and unique products.
Next up is super boutique brand SEVEN haircare. This is a great line of products, that was completely new to us until our visit to Modest Spot, and after a few washes with SEVEN's Luster Shampoo and Conditioner, we're in love!
So what do these products have in common? When finding brands for the salon Stephanie wanted to make sure the brands were enviromentally friendly, focused on protecting your hair investment, and good for you. "We care about eating organic, but often forget about what we're putting in our hair!" stated Stephanie during our visit, and she's right. All the products in these lines are paraben free, sulfate free, and most are vegan.
So what are the products this environmentally conscious, super babe, salon owner can't get enough of? She wouldn't tell, but she did recommend a few great summer products to check out. Being in San Clemente, and so close to such tempting water, SEVEN's Sun Spray is a must have to keep hair safe from that summer sun. This bad boy has protection against UVA and UVB rays, plus it packs sunflower oil and other nutrients to protect against the elements.
Next on the list, is "He who Shall not be named!" Haha, sorry about the Harry Potter reference, I couldn't help myself. At the time of this interview they were testing a new styling product by R+Co, and lovingly started calling it "Unicorn Paste." They said it was amazing, and we were going to love it! Well, lucky for you I've watched a ton of detective shows and have found that this miracle paste is... BADLANDS DRY SHAMPOO PASTE! My detective skills, and not the release of this product, and a few Instagram posts figured this out.
So that's it, SEVEN Haircare, the release of Badlands.
Wait, there's one more thing...
Coming this fall, Modest Spot will open their very own General Store attached to their salon. This space will be chock-full of cute artists goods, jewlery, organic skincare, and so much more! How fun right? You bet we'll be there the moment it opens with the dish on all the goodies in store!
So whether you need a great color, the hippest new products, or maybe you're a stylist in search of a chair (I hear they're hiring!), stop by Modest Spot on your next visit through San Clemente! Or, maybe visit San Clemente next time you're at Modest Spot, it's up to you.
