Update at 10/4/12 — Phantacee Salon and Spa did not permanently close. It relocated to 2814 Washington Blvd in Lyon Park.

There has been some turnover among spas and salons in Clarendon.

The Phantacee Hair Salon and Spa at 3033 Wilson Boulevard recently closed up shop. Signs in the window indicate that a Casal’s dé Spa and Salon location will be opening in its stead.

Casal’s, which currently has two locations in northeastern Ohio, describes itself as a full-service, non-tipping salon.

“We operate with a team of hair, color, nail, massage therapy and esthetic experts committed to the health and beauty of our clients,” the Casal’s website says. “From day one, Casal’s has been a departmentalized salon and spa, staffed with the best professionals in their fields.”

Meanwhile, the Hollywood Tans location at 3000 N. Washington Boulevard has also closed. Customer accounts were moved over to the newer Palm Beach Tan location at 2900 Wilson Boulevard. Hollywood Tans customers were notified of the change via email last Friday.

    Was the closing due to the Obamacare tax on tanning?

    • DarkHeart

      Would that be a death/skin cancer tax?

      • drax

        The full title is the “Death/skin cancer/people who are too stupid to go outside and get a tan for free” tax.

    • Patrick

      Probably b/c Pelosi made sure to get the Botox tax taken out of the legislation.

    • R. Griffon

      Either that or maybe too many people finally woke up and realized what tanning does to you.

      Tobacco companies should be next.

  • G Clifford Prout

    I prefer to tan the old fashioned way: Standing in front of a 7-11 naked.

    I can’t believe that “Phantacee” wasn’t a winning name for that spa.

    • Juanita de Talmas

      I can’t believe people actually go to tanning salons.

  • John Fontain

    Palm Beach tans are too east coast for my taste. I mourn the loss of the fabulous west coast style tans offered by Hollywood Tan.

    • drax

      Pretty good, John.

  • Orange

    What happened to the old days when you’d just rub an orange peel all over your body?

    • nom de guerre

      Why don’t you ask Snooki?

    • 7-11 guy

      yeah what’s up with that?!

  • What’s the difference between a Hollywood tan & a Palm Beach tan?

    • Clarendon

      It’s like the difference between a sunrise and a sunset.

    • Plunkitt of Clarendon Blvd

      If you have to ask…………………

  • As a Seattle transplant, I can’t imagine why anyone in the area would *pay* for tanning. It’s practically sunny here ALL THE TIME.

    • Tabs

      You must be a recent transplant.

      It rained heavily and constantly last September, normally the most beautiful month, and it often rains a lot. Sure, maybe not the constant drizzle of a Seattle winter/spring (OK, 9 mths of the year I guess) but it’s normally pretty wet here.

    It is so refreshing that that an Aveda salon and spa is finally opening in Clarendon. No tipping? BRAVO! This area really needs qualified color specialists, and having gone to Aveda salons before, we are in for a treat.

  • Aveda is the best, I have visited the Casal Aveda salon while visiting my mother in Ohio for Christmas. What an experience. I am beyond thrilled they are in our area. And no tipping! —too cool and utterly classy! Plus the colorist are above & beyond. I feel lucky!
