Check Out the Best (BEST!) Hair Salon in Medellín

“I’d like to match my root to the color of the rest of my hair,” I asked the stylist, in Spanish. He chuckled at what presumably was some sort of grammatical error in my Spanish, then proceeded to mix up a color.

That smells an awful lot like bleach, I thought to myself, eyeballing the bowl of color he wheeled over to the chair, and proceeded to brush into my roots. It smelled like bleach because, it was. The stylist ignored my attempts at chitchat, and an hour later I left the salon, my hair dry as crackers, letting out a long sigh. I’d been trying to grow my hair out after months traveling on a motorcycle trip, the wind and sun damaging my hair, and now I was in a proper city again and I couldn’t find a good salon.

Several months later, I stumbled across several reviews of Livana Salon in Poblado, reading their stellar reviews about the warm, family atmosphere and incredible color correction. That was over a year ago now— every few months give or take I’m at Livana Salon, and every time my hair gets a little healthier, with an incredible cut or conditioning treatment or color touch up. (Check out the video below of my first time at the salon.)

We’ve all been there— on the road traveling, in need of a proper haircut or color or lovely conditioner from sun-damaged hair after hiking in the sun for weeks on end without a proper treatment. Then once arriving in a city, how do you know the best place to go?

Livana Salon in Poblado is the only salon in the city doing color corrections. You’ll be treated like gold from the owner, Tata, who also speaks English, and will communicate with your stylist to make sure your color/cut/keratin treatment/etc. is on point. Every stylist who has worked on my dry, long suffering, gringa hair has been spectacular. They carry multiple lines of salon quality products, and always have a recommendation for my hair— whether it’s a new product they’ve just gotten in, or a recommendation from a staple line depending on how my hair is that month.
