People from all over the world come here for shopping. When searching for clothes, shoes, or accessories, we might want to brush ourselves up and simply recharge the batteries during several hours in some beauty salon. You don’t need to search anymore – we present three of the best places to chill out in the Paseo de Gracia area.
Haute Custom Beauty – revitalize the face
This salon, which boasts over 30 years of experience in skincare, is located in the legendary historical building, Casa Amatller. A minimalist interior, original furniture, and dim light create ideal conditions for salon visitors.
The building acquired its unique appearance at the turn of the 20th century, when Antonio Amatller, a famous confectioner, purchased and reconstructed it. Nowadays, together with the adjacent Casa Batlló and Casa Lleó i Morera, the building of the Haute Custom Beauty salon is a part of the “Block of Discord,” called so due to the stylistic heterogeneity of the edifices constructed there.
Here, one should definitely try the unique regenerative massage-based lifting with semiprecious stones covered with 24-carate gold (from 110 €). Apart from the lifting effect, this technique is also perfect for a deep facial cleansing and skin revitalization.
Apart from that, this salon offers massage (155 € – 60 minutes, 190 € – 90 minutes), manicure (from 50 €), and pedicure (from 70 €) with a brand coating from Tom Ford or Christian Louboutin, make-up services (from 150 €), hair removal services, hairstyling, stylist and personal shopper services.
After conducting research on different skin types and external conditions’ impact on our overall state, Haute Custom Beauty together with the scientific research of the American Institute, developed its own cosmetics line that is manufactured in Barcelona.
This cosmetics line is made from only natural ingredients, making it beneficial not only for clients but also for the environment. The manufacturers decreased the amount of preservatives by using a special “airless” technology for all hydrating products, as well as by switching to glass packaging (glass ampoules) for all cosmetics products.

The Pink Peony – pamper the hands and feet
This salon of manicure and pedicure created in a New York style, combines Asian hospitality and European elegance. Peony Herrera Sy, the owner of the salon, opened it ten years ago, on St. Valentine’s day. Since that time, every year, on the 14th of February, as a part of the salon birthday celebration, the guests are invited to have a free express-manicure. The owner was born in Philippines, although the longest period of her life was spent in New York. When she moved to Barcelona, Peony realized that she really missed the American manicure and pedicure service system. As a result, she founded a network of salons, one of which is located in the area of Passeig de Gracia.
In this salon, they use only the coatings of the brands preferred by the U.S. masters, including Essie, OPI, and CND (Creative Nail Design) Shellac. Moreover, the salon boasts its own product line. For skincare, the salon specialists use such natural cosmetics brands as Dr. Hauschka and Dulkamara.
A manicure here costs 20 € (with Shellac coating – 40 €), an express-pedicure 20 €, and a classical pedicure 48 € (with Shellac – 65 €). Also, the salon offers a hand and foot massage, relaxation body massage, and cosmetic hair removal services.
The size of the salon area is over 100 meters. It is a great idea to visit this place in the company of your friends, family members, or colleagues, occupy seats near each other, and enjoy the process accompanied with splendid views from the windows.
