Corta Cabeza – Lose your head!

I knew it was different the first time I walked in five or so years ago, and they asked me if I’d like a coffee, tea or beer. Beer? It was the first time I’d been offered a beer in a hairdresser’s. And from that good start, everything went so well that after 10 years of searching for a place to get my hair done without leaving feeling traumatized, I felt I’d finally found the place for me.

After more than 5 years of showing up there every 3 weeks or so, you’d think they’d be fed up of seeing me, but they are always friendly and welcoming. It’s the staff who make it a special salon; apart from being great professionals who work hard to understand what you want, these guys love working here. Many of them have been here since I started coming at the recommendation of a friend. One of the owners lived and worked for years in London, and he seems to get what this Londoner needs!

I love the decor, which is a mixture of industrial, shabby chic, upcycled aluminium scaffolding planks and kitsch, completed with Chesterfields, large mirrors and super comfortable basins, which you practically lie down on. The clientele is a complete mix from young to old; Corta Cabeza will send you out looking fantastic whoever you are!
