Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, appearance can make or break a person. It can affect all aspects of life, including employment, relationships and a person’s sense of self-worth. Good-looking hair, according to style experts, can be the cornerstone of an attractive appearance. The stylists at Hair Architects know this and their goal, according to owner Mark Graham, is to help people gain and keep self-confidence.


“We provide a service that helps people feel good throughout their life’s journey,” said Graham.

Graham has been cutting hair since 1991, and with the help of his father, opened the first Hair Architects in 1993 on Buckingham and Centinela. He opened the second salon in Fox Hills. In 2000, HA opened on Crenshaw and the salons have been successful ever since.

“Hair Architects blends both male styling and barbering right along with all phases of hair styling for women,” they said.
