When preparing a long trip to Barcelona, especially one involving work or studies, there is some valuable information you just can’t ignore. For instance, knowing where to have a haircut, a trim or a shave at an affordable price is essential if you want to look neat and trendy all throughout your stay, even if you are travelling on a tight budget.
Just like in any other city, most hairdressers of Barcelona today have both men and women among their clients; however, you will still find traditional barber shops that exclusively –and very professionally- offer their services to men.
CHEAP UNISEX HAIR SALONS IN BARCELONA
The franchise known as “Oh my cut!” (www.ohmycut.com) has two establishments in the Catalan capital (located at Muntaner and Vía Augusta streets respectively), and both boys and girls may get a cut, a diversity of moisturising treatments, have their hair dyed or done or get Californian highlights. Prices are considerably lower than in other hair salons but, even so, nobody would say you are sporting a cheap hairstyle.
HAVE YOUR HAIR CUT FOR ONLY 5 EUROS IN BARCELONA
“Easy cut” (www.easycut.es), with over 15 establishments across Barcelona city, normally offers amazing discounts for first-time clients, and this means that your cut, trim or styling may cost you only 5 euros. Do you think you will have a hard time trying to explain exactly what you want? If you can’t speak Spanish or Catalan, just bring a magazine with you for the hairdresser to get an idea.
