Just because you are on the Spanish soil, doesn’t mean your hair will stop growing. However, entrusting something so crucial as your hair to a person you don’t know and whose language you don’t understand is a scary endeavour. After all, you will have to live with the haircut for at least few months.


But don’t worry! We piled up a few of the best hair salons in Madrid and Barcelona to help you solve your hair-mergency without fear and, preferably, without disasters.


Anthony Llobet (Barcelona)


Anthony Llobet is by far the most known and also oldest English-speaking hair salon in Barcelona. Wherever you live, you don’t need to go far to find it because Anthony Llobet has as many as five salons in the best neighbourhoods of the city including Gracia and El Born. It’s friendly, welcoming, and with a chic vintage design! The staff are international but all trained in London.

Onda Salon (Barcelona)


If you are up for something really fancy, Onda Salon is the place to go. It was founded by a skilled Italian stylist Piero Zatra in 2009 (former style director for Toni&Guy). Most of the staff are very laid back English-speaking Italians. You can get any haircut or style you want as well as take advantage tons of other perks like massages, facial treatments or makeup.

SportsCuts Haircuts (Barcelona)


A sports fan for whom a haircut is more of a chore than a treat, SportsCuts is the perfect place to go. Relatively new to the scene, this is the first salon of its kind in Spain. The right haircut matters as much as the sports score. Located in Eixample, it’s easy to reach and a fun place to get a haircut.
