Meet the Fabulous Luis Llongueras!
Impertinent, humorous and driven to continue perfecting the art of hair, Spanish beauty icon Luis Llongueras celebrates 60 years in the world of professional beauty.
Ambitious right from the beginning of his fabled career, Llongueras opened his first salon when he was 20 years old—or 22, depending on which historian you choose to believe. Consumed by his passion for art, beauty and business, he eventually built a veritable empire of over 100 salons, including those in Brazil, Dominican Republic, Italy, Japan, Portugal, Switzerland, Uruguay, Venezuela, and, of course, all over Spain. He founded the Llongueras Institute in Barcelona, a world-renowned academy where thousands of budding Europeans kick-start their beauty careers. And, after being smitten by the printed word, Llongueras also launched Peluquerias magazine, which remains the leading probeauty publication in Spain.
