Opera is a hair salon located in Barcelona with a unique twist – it also functions as a contemporary art space and venue for cultural events. The salon’s concept is inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote “Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” The salon features the work of visual artists who have dedicated their lives to perfecting their craft, and head stylist Giovanni Lavorante has applied the same dedication to developing cutting-edge hair styling techniques.
Giovanni has mastered a unique coloring technique using henna, a plant-based dye that offers a multitude of blonde shades. This natural application restores the health of hair, adding volume and length. Originally from Salerno, Italy, Giovanni honed his hairdressing skills in Milan, working for 15 years with the esteemed Aldo Coppola, who has worked with celebrities such as Donatella Versace, Naomi Campbell, Sophia Loren, Monica Bellucci, and Linda Evangelista.
At Opera, the client is the absolute protagonist, occupying a central position and enjoying a unique 360-degree experience. The salon offers a personalized approach to hair styling, with a focus on individual preferences and style. The contemporary art space provides a visually stimulating environment that enhances the overall experience, creating a truly one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
