Our History

Hair of the Gods in concept, started over 20 years ago, even before it actually manifested itself in 

San Francisco.  


Geno Valle landed out west in 1989 from Cincinnati, Ohio and was determined to open his own salon to house his extensive collection of art, photography and love of plants. . . he was inspired by Hindu gods and goddesses and one day it came to him in

looking at a picture of Shiva, 

“THE HAIR OF THE GODS IS SO ELABORATE” 

and that is how the name and salon was born here in San Francisco in 1997.
