Good hair day

Ok, so
here´s the deal. I´ve got unruly, curly hair. This mop and its potential for
disaster in the hands of unknown hairdressers has filled me with dread all my
adult life. Oh how they love to tease, and twist and generally manhandle me,
until I come out looking more demented than Kate Bush.

 So it was
with some trepidation that I entered possibly the smallest hairdressing salon
in the developed world. Well in fact, the first time I waited outside for
twenty minutes in the damp March drizzle for Manolo to arrive to open up shop.
Things weren´t looking good. But
eventually the man with the magic fingers arrived, pulled open the graffitied
metallic shutters and let me in.

And you
know what, there´s a happy ending to this inauspicious start. Manolo knows how
to cut and colour hair. I say it like it´s a surprising thing. NEWSFLASH:
HAIRDRESSER KNOWS HOW TO CUT HAIR! But you never know in this world. 

 Ok so I
lived in London, yeah it’s the coolest city in Europe (blah blah) and like various other daft women, I
have spent almost 150 quid getting my haircut and coloured in pretentious
salons. But I would genuinely say that Manolo/Gloss (Manolo is Gloss by the
way) has done the best job so far and at a fraction of the price.

Bit of info
about Manolo, he loves guiris, he’s an anglophile, can be grumpy, but is mostly
very funny. And knows all the latest indie guitar bands coming out of my your
country that you’re too uncool to have every heard of.

    I went there on Thursday and he did a great job. I've just gone from long to short hair and was really nervous about getting someone in Seville that could cut short hair as almost everyone here has long hair. So thanks Mary, very useful blog. By the way, I didn't find him the least bit grumpy!

  7. haha, I think Manolo reserves his grumpiness for me then. He is of course charming, otherwise I wouldn´t go back. Glad your hair looks good and you´re enjoying the blog.

    Hi! I know this is a super old blog post but I've been scouring the internet looking for a Sevilla hairdresser recommendation! Really need to get my highlights redone but I'm super nervous because no one here has naturally blonde hair so I don't know if hairdressers are familiar with working with fair hair (if that makes any difference) PLUS, I have a deep dark fear of stripy hair which also seems to be a bit of a look here :/ what colouring did you get done? And would you mind giving me a ballpark price? Thank you!! 🙂

    • Hi Sophie, I had a half head of highlights, but I found Manolo originally through a friend who had very blonde hair, and he used to do her hair no problem. Of course, please don´t hold me personally responsible if he does your hair and it isn´t to your liking. On the ballpark front, for my half head and a cut it was 40 euros, so a full head I guess would be more, but he is pretty reasonable. Hope that helps
