Vacations in the Algarve usually mean days at the beach, and the sun can wreak havoc on the hair and skin. Luckily, a hairdresser or beauty salon is never far away, so go ahead and book a day to pamper yourself. Here are a few salons and beauty parlors with raving reviews from Portugal’s southern region.

Mind Body & Soul

Treating yourself to a special day dedicated to your needs is good for the mind and soul as much as the body, a concept that this location understands (as noted in their name). Mind Body & Soul provides a long list of pampering, including (but not restricted to) massages, reflexology, non-surgical face lifts, both threading and waxing, and facials. Located in Almancil since 1999, it is much more than a simple beauty salon; indeed, they call themselves a health and beauty clinic.

Mind Body & Soul, Avenida Gondra 53A, Urb. Valverde, 8135-904 Almancil, Portugal, +351 289 392 218

Polished & Bronzed Algarve

One of the best things about a beachside vacation is the golden, sun-kissed tan, but laying in the sun is not the healthiest activity for our skin. Luckily, spray tanning has come a long way, offering an alternative to exposing your body’s largest organ to harmful UV rays, and Polished & Bronzed will go to you. Based in Lagos, this salon provides mobile services and will meet their guests at their homes or hotels. They also offer nail services and nutrition consultations.

B Hairdesign

This establishment is easily one of Faro’s best hair salons, meaning it’s also conveniently located for anyone in the Algarve with a car (the region is fairly small, after all). Spearheaded by third-generation hair stylist Bradley Querl, a native of Zimbabwe and a resident of Portugal, the salon is a one-stop shop for all things “hair” and provides services from pastel coloring to straightening, simple cuts for men and styling for women.
