Art Cardiel, named by Los Angeles Magazine as “Best Haircutter in Los Angeles”, is the owner of Works of Art Hair Studio.

Raised in Los Angeles, Art trained in London (Toni & Guy), Germany (Kabus) and LA (Sebastian, Sassoon). He worked at Ravissant in San Marino before moving to the popular Los Feliz salon, Transcend, where he cut for over a decade, and developed a devoted following.

“No one will ever leave here with a cookie cutter copy of this month’s TV star hairdo” says Art. “Unless, of course, that’s what they want. Seriously, I approach each client as an individual. I listen to their needs and wants, then apply my skills and knowledge to put them in the right direction. It’s my job to make sure every client is not only happy with their cut today, but to make sure it’s going to work after he or she leaves.”

On the salon, Cardiel says:

“My motto is, ‘Open door, open space’”, says Art, who is the consummate host, introducing customers to one another and making sure everyone is happy. “I want to be an artistic nucleus for the neighborhood. My clients are a wide array of creative people, and I like being able to expose them to the community, and the community to them.”
