Best Barcelona Haircut - L'Adresse

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may know that I had a rather disastrous hair experience in Barcelona during the first year of my MBA.

Interestingly enough, I wasn't the only one. In fact I had several conversations with other expats in BCN who'd run into hair catastrophes. Finally one of them told me about a French guy she'd found at a salon aptly named Le Salon, who had given her not just a normal haircut, but a GREAT haircut. And as such my love for Damien was born. Unfortunately, he vanished from my radar during my summer in Bucharest and during my second year I was again adrift in the cruel waters that are the Barcelona haircutting culture. (Anyone who has been to Barcelona knows that the favorite hairstyle is the mullet.)

But, magically, I found him again! He fortunately had my mobile number on file and so when he opened his very own salon and sent out a text message announcement, I realized who it was and called him immediately. His space, L'Adresse, has been open for about two and a half years now, and it's gorgeous. Fabulous decor, great music, a tea selection he brings back from his monthly trips to New York, and awesome cookies. Oh yeah, and did I mention he gives fantastic haircuts and does amazing color? Men, women, kids, he does a great job with everyone. So much so that people (including me) actually fly to Barcelona specifically to see him!

So, whether you're someone who reads this blog regularly, or a random who has happened upon it because you googled "haircut Barcelona," I recommend you give him a call. Oh, and he speaks Spanish, English, French, and some Catalan. So never fear, your hair is safe with Damien!

This post was exactly what I was looking for. To echo someone else's comment, what sort of price range is Damien's service (let's say just a cut, no colouring)? Would you say it is in the 35 Euro range, 50, 80, 130? Just so I don't have a shocker and know what I'm getting in to. Thank a million!

To everyone who commented - I'm so sorry for the delay in my response! I never set up email notifications for commenting because, well, I'm blond. :)

I recall Damien's prices being quite reasonable. Definitely not more than 100! Give him a call and set something up - you will not be disappointed, I promise. He is such a sweetheart, he even called me out of the blue a few weeks back in NYC to see how I'm doing.

I am so delighted I found LÁdrese. I too have had some dodgy experiences in various salons in Barcelona (why can they not do blonde highlights here and a good blow-dry?!) and can honestly say my first time at LÁdrese will not be my last one! Just brilliant! The best in Barcelona without a doubt. Great colour which does not wash out after 2 weeks and turn orange in the process (had that so many times here) and a fabulous blow-dry.

Highly recommended.

I am so amused. I'm a current IESE student and was desperate for a hairdresser who just got it.
Someone mentioned Damien and lo behold I ended up at your blogpost... Calling for an appointment now... :)
