The first time I lived in Spain, I didn’t cut my hair. Not once. I was nervous and scared. I don’t even know what to say when I get my hair cut in the States, let alone in Spain…in Spanish. Needless to say, after I stupidly tried to cut my own hair, it was time to do some research and take it to the professionals.
Here are the most recommended English speaking hair salons in Madrid:
1. Looking for all natural hair dye?
Are You Ready? I got my hair done here. I did not want bleach as my hair was a bit damaged from last time I dyed it. The salon has English speakers and outstanding service. My cut and full highlights cost around 90 euros. My friend also dyed her hair a gorgeous burgundy color.
