Spaniards spend a healthy sum of money frequenting hairdressers and purchasing beauty products. There aren’t many chain hairdressers and because of this, prices might be slightly higher than what you’d expect to pay. However, due to the independent nature of these shops, there is a more personal element and a higher quality of hairdressing is expected.

Hairdressers in Spain tend to have a full range of beauty treatments, such as waxing, pedicures and manicures. There are no hairdressers known specifically for their English speaking staff, but shops around the center are more likely to employ English speakers.

For centrally located hairdressers with a good reputation, try any of the following:
