About Us

Established in 2003.

In 1956, Xavier Valenti Sr. opened Valenti’s Beauty Salon at the corner of N. Rampart and Iberville Street. Within five years his business had grown substantially, necessitating a larger facility. Mr. Valenti purchased a building at 129 Chartres St. where he offered additional services in a more spacious setting. He operated at that location until 1974 when he left the French Quarter and moved to Park Esplanade, now called The Esplanade at City Park, a multi-unit apartment building at the foot of Esplanade Avenue. Mr. Valenti retired in 2003 turning the business over to his son; Xavier Valenti Jr, who now does business as Salon Valenti.

  • Xavier cut my hair and did a great job. He was the perfect blend of traditional barber and stylist. He knew all the right questions to ask, but just kind of went with the flow too.

  • The owner, Xavier, cut my hair, and he did a very thorough and professional job, plus he's a nice guy. I'll be back.
