It is in the heart of the traditional Yungay neighborhood and works in a building built in 1900. In addition to its gastronomy, visitors can enjoy the original setting achieved with old and curious objects, all for sale.

The restaurant, which offers international gastronomy with a French stamp for lunch and dinner, is part of Boulevard Lavaud, an interesting proposal that integrates a barbershop and the House Museum of Collectors.


The French Hairdresser originally operated in front of Plaza Yungay and later on Santo Domingo street. Since 1925 it has occupied the current building on the corner of Compañía de Jesús with Libertad.

This traditional neighborhood hairdresser began its operations in 1868 by Victorino Tauzan and two French hairdressers who served high society and French civil servants, since the French Consulate was located a few steps from the square.

It was Emilio Lavaud Jr., who on the death of his father took over the hairdressing salon, maintaining the French tradition and the European air of its decoration.

Despite the migration of high society to the eastern sector, the hairdresser maintained its style of work and renewed it with the arrival of Manuel Cerda (1963), who applied the barbershop technique with hot cloths, highly valued by former residents.

Although the political, cultural and economic changes of the 70s and 80s depressed the activity of the hairdresser, it survived the difficulties and began to be a meeting point for artists, actors, musicians and writers remembering the neighborhood’s past.

The repositioning of the Yungay neighborhood at the end of the last century reactivated the life of the hairdresser, which today has become Boulevard Lavaud.

Compañía de Jesús, 2789, Santiago.
