An Exterior Look at the Connoisseur Art and Hair Studio

A short walk from Parliament Hill in center town / downtown Ottawa at the corner of Cooper and Elgin stands a modest cultural icon (for over 50 years). The Connoisseur Hair Salon has been trimming the locks of actors, athletes, ambassadors and politicians for decades and at one time cut the hair of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau and is also an innovative art studio.

The Connoisseur Hair Studio specializes in women’s’ and  men’s complete hair services (including cutting, permanents, foil highlights, eye and lash tints),  hand aesthetics  (regular, french manicures and polish changes), foot aesthetics (regular, french manicures and polish changes), waxing aesthetics (legs, face, bikini, brow, lips, chin, axils).

Gamal Rahman, an artist, architect, interior designer, painter and photographer hailing from Egypt, has owned the Salon for the past 15 years. In that time his love of art has transformed the small studio into an artistic haven.

“It’s good for everyone—artists, clients and even art galleries. Bringing this art to the people, and stretching our boundaries is worth it,” said Rahman. “People come for their hair, now they can stay for the art.”

Pop’t Art for The Connoisseur was held June 21st  and June 28 2014 at the Connoisseur Hair Salon, 202 Cooper St., Ottawa

  1. I highly recommend the Connoisseur. I’ve been getting my hair cut there for years and I’m always happy with the results. Apart from getting a great haircut, I enjoy chatting with Gamal and looking at his art.
