Congratulations to MOD Hair Salon in beautiful Vista, California for joining the ANTIDOTE 1848 family.
Casey Brookshire, owner and master stylist, shared her excitement, "Thrilled to have Antidote 1848 in the salon and can’t wait to share it with more people!"
We had a chance to sit down with Casey to learn more about her and her approach to clean beauty.
Here's what Casey had to say...
How did you get into the beauty industry?
Being born the creative type, I knew that when I grew up, I would have a career that allowed me to use my imagination in order to put my talents to good use. I found that I loved doing hair shortly after graduating high school by experimenting on myself and willing friends. No doubt there were plenty of failed experiments, but what was interesting is how excited it got me, and how natural it seemed. With the beauty industry looking like the perfect fit for me, I enrolled in cosmetology school soon thereafter. I worked as a receptionist in a salon while going to school and became the owners office assistant which allowed me to learn the business end of a hair salon before I even got my license. Once I was working behind the chair for a few years, I knew I needed to do it “my way” and in 2013, MOD Hair Salon was born.
Describe your approach to beauty?
I believe in using the best quality products, that actually work, but that don’t compromise values, ethics or our health negatively. Days off I go bare faced with moisurizer, spf 30 and lip gloss and work days I’m full face with strip lashes and orange lips! I think your beauty routine should work for you and your lifestyle!
Describe your approach to health?
My approach to health is to eat as cleanly as possible, move as much as possible, relax as much as possible.
Why do you use ANTIDOTE products?
A few years ago, I was being treated at a naturopathic school and they had mentioned the EWG (Environmental Working Group) and suggested I do some research on the products I was using. It was truly horrifying to learn about the chemicals being absorbed into our blood streams by using some of these chemicals. Ever since then, I’ve been on a mission to reduce the amount of toxicity exposure on a daily basis. I was so thrilled to learn of ANTIDOTE's ratings on EWG and more so because the products actually do what they say they’ll do.
What is your favorite ANTIDOTE product?
I use the sandalwood multi styler on nearly every client!
Your favorite vegetable is…
How can you choose just one? I’m going super hippy and saying steamed broccoli!
The Vista, California area was settled by theLuiseño Indians thousands of years ago. Today, Vista is considered one of the best cities to live in. In addition to its perfect climate, Vista is also has MOD Hair Salon and ANTIDOTE 1848!
