Where to get a haircut in Rome
14 November 2019

Looking to get all gussied up for a night out or some holiday parties while you’re in Rome? Here’s our list of our favorite places to get our hair cut or blown out in Rome.

Useful words to know when getting a haircut or going to a salon

Before heading out to get a haircut or to the salon, you might find the glossary of terms helpful when you get there. In the center of Rome, generally hair stylists will be able to speak enough English to understand what you’re looking for. But if you’re brave enough to have your hair cut or colored in a foreign country, it’s probably a good idea to have a few basic words under your belt.

cut/haircut taglio (ta-lio)

blow out piega (pee-eh-gah)

color colore (co-lor-eh)

salon parrucchiere (pah-ru-kee-air-eh)

scissors forbici (for-bee-chee)

clippers clipper (klee-per)

barber barbiere (bar-bee-air-eh)

moustache baffi (bah-fee)

beard barba (bar-bah)
