Welcome to Mòdú, a one-of-a-kind hair salon located right in the heart of Vancouver at 626 Abbott Street.
“MODU” (모두) is a word in Korean that can signify all of the above. We chose this name because it evokes the kind of feeling and atmosphere we envision for our salon.
We want Mòdú to be everyone’s space. A place where everyone feels welcome to share their ideas, their passion, their energy and their creative drive. What makes this salon special is the unique bond we share and the contagious love we all have for hairstyling.
Hiro, the founder of Mòdú, has nearly 20 years of experience as a hairstylist in Korea, Japan and Vancouver. This has allowed him to perfect his skill set and taught him to cherish his clients and the lasting bonds he builds with them. Years of hard work have also made him realize the true importance of forging deep interpersonal relationships based on mutual respect and trust with his coworkers, as well as the value of maintaining a happy and stimulating work environment.
Hiro will provide you with a very personalized and unique experience thanks to his vast skill repertoire and expertise.
“Everyday I am constantly reminded that it is only with one's heart that one can see clearly. I believe that what is most important to us is invisible to our naked eyes. This is why I wanted my own hair salon so I could create a special space where there is much more than meets the eye. I welcome you to Mòdú!”

While growing up, Mia had always looked up to her mother who worked as a beautician. Her mother was the one who ultimately inspired Mia to pursue a career in the hairdressing industry. Mia worked as a hairstylist in Korea for six years after graduating from cosmetology school, and decided to resettle in Vancouver at the prospect of new opportunities and challenges.
Going forward, Mia’s goal is to prioritize the relationships she develops with her clients and connect with them on a deeper level. Mia wishes to share all the knowledge she has accumulated over the years and focus on building long-lasting bonds with her clients and coworkers alike that will outlive her time spent at the salon. Mia will continue to contribute to creating a fun and positive atmosphere at Mòdú so that every client can feel right at home and leave with a big smile.

Adah began working as an assistant in 2010 at JUNO Hair in Korea, eventually climbing the ranks to become a senior hairstylist. Influenced by her mother who was a hairstylist herself, Adah earned a degree from a beauty college in Korea and came to settle down in Vancouver after having refined her skillset as a hairstylist.
Communicating with her clients is what Adah values most in her work. She believes that good communication is the key to making her clients happy, and in turn allow herself constant room to grow and get better.
