Art, Beauty, Culture Opera is a hair and beauty salon in Barcelona that fuses art, beauty and culture. The salon is located in a contemporary art space and events venue. Head Stylist Giovanni Lavorante devotes his creative talent to capturing authentic beauty, using innovative techniques in hair styling through sculpting, texturing and colouring. Originally from Salerno, Giovanni refined his skills as a hair stylist in Milan, working for 15 years side-by-side with the esteemed Aldo Coppola, a legend in the industry for his unique style, who has worked for Donatella Versace, Naomi Campbell, Sophia Loren, Monica Bellucci and Linda Evangelista, among others. Lavorante brings to this Eixample-based hair and beauty salon his specialty — shatush, an innovative coloring technique originally lauched by Aldo Coppola. Shatush takes balayage colouring to the next level; the treatment reacts differently to each client’s hair, resulting in a completely unique look.
