Great barber shops in Eixample

Written by Christine

There’s nothing quite like getting a fresh haircut and spending some time at the barber shop. Even though a barber shop is a place where you go to get a cut or a shave, the shop is traditionally so much more than that. It’s a place where men can chat, talk sports, and joke around. Everyone is a friend in the barber shop, even if only for a short time. If you’re looking for a great place to get a cut in Eixample, look no further than this list. These are some of the best shops that you will find in the area, offering the best services at competitive prices.

On Carrer Mallorca you will find a little barber shop called Mustache Barber Shop. Even though it is small, having only one chair, it is consistently rated as one of the best places to get your hair cut in Eixample. The shop has an old-school feel to it but you can get anything from a classic cut to the latest styles. The owner, Raul, has been said by many to be one of the most talented men’s hair care professionals in Barcelona as well. When you go to Mustache, you can get more than just a haircut, you can get a full barber shop treatment at a very affordable price. While in many cheaper shops things like hot towels and facial massages are a thing of the past, tradition still holds fast at this shop. This is also the perfect place to get your hair cut if you aren’t confident in your Spanish enough to convey the style that you’re looking for since the barbers speak English as well. While you might get lucky walking in without an appointment, it’s best to call and book ahead of time since this shop is usually buzzing with customers. Check out their website for contact information and make your appointment today!

Barcelona Barber Shop

Barcelona Barber Shop first opened its doors in 1987 and has been satisfying customers ever since. Due to success and the quality that this shop offers, they have since expanded to open 3 more shops in Barcelona: in Eixample and Gràcia. Whichever location you visit you will be greeted by members of the team of professional stylists who can offer you an array of services beyond the standard cut or trim. At very reasonable prices you can have the regular services like a cut, wash, and shave, or opt for salon services like beard maintenance or waxing of pesky hairs like the eyebrows, nose, or ears. Barcelona Barber Shop is open Monday through Saturday and doesn’t close during siesta, so you can easily make an appointment to fit your busy schedule.

One O Nine is probably the most unique barber shop in Eixample, or maybe in all of Barelona. This shop is another that has a traditional atmosphere but with a twist: not only can you get your hair cut or your beard trimmed, you can get a tattoo while you’re waiting. Part barber shop, part tattoo parlor, part hang-out space, One O Nine is a hybrid of services. While you wait for your cut (or tattoo) you can enjoy a drink and listen to music while chatting with the friendly staff. While the majority of the clients at this shop are men, there are also some services available for women as well. This shop is a place just to visit not only for the haircut but to experience it as well, to check out a something new and different. Whatever services you choose you will be sure to walk out feeling good, fresh, and confident.
