Casal’s History:

In 1994, Thomas Ciarniello set out to create a spa and salon committed to providing the highest level of service to clients, to developing an outstanding and satisfied staff, and to be an asset to the community. His goal was to create a place where clients could unwind from the stresses of the outside world, find their style, and take home products both natural and essential to maintaining hair and skin health.  In addition, he established on-going education –both in-house and out—of-house, for staff to develop their skills and artistry.

Thom’s vision came to life in 1994 when Casal’s dé Spa and Salon opened in Canfield, Ohio as an innovative salon offering the latest in spa and salon services. The company has flourished since then and opened the Casal Aveda Institute in Austintown, Casal’s dé Spa and Salon in Howland, an Aveda Institute in Las Vegas, and the newest salon, Casal’s de Spa and Salon in Arlington, VA. Since day one, Casal’s has operated as a departmentalized salon and spa where only the best professionals practice in their areas of expertise. Every Monday morning the salons are closed for advanced education classes for our staff where they continue to master their specialized skills.

Casal’s at Clarendon:

Casal’s at Clarendon, open in June 2012, continues in the values that anchored the first salon in Ohio.  It is a full service Salon and Spa specializing in advanced Hair Color and Cutting techniques. We strive to create a relaxing and calm spa environment. Our non-tipping salon/spa offers complimentary value-added services –mini stress reliever, mini-facial, and make-up touch-up- that set us apart. We will be honored with your visit,and promise you an experience equal to the Casal/Aveda mission
