Established in 1977
Mane Attraction Salon was established in 1977, and has been in their Biltmore location since 1981. Kendall Ong and Beate Assmuth-Ong purchased MAS in 1998 and brought their innovative brand of hairdressing and expertise to Phoenix.
Both began their careers with the prestigious Vidal Sassoon organization. Combined, they have more than 50 years of international experience. Their creative talents have taken them around the world, whether teaching other hair stylist or designing new looks for clients; New York, London, Hong Kong, San Francisco, Munich and Beverly Hills, are just a few of the cities they’ve worked their magic.
In 2015 Chris and Jenny Knudsen joined the ownership of MAS. Chris is a third generation hairdresser and grew up around the hair industry in Wisconsin. He was inspired to enter the hair industry after watching most of his family and most notably his parents Erik and Carol Knudsen, who are internationally recognized hairdressers and entrepreneurs, succeed in the industry. Chris began his career at MAS and is one of the cutting educators, stylists, mentors and now business partners with his wife Jenny. Jenny brings her experience and knowledge having managed salons in the past.
Education is engrained in the MAS culture. All stylists go through an intensive internal training program to ensure the highest standards in our industry. Additionally, our staff travels nationally and internationally for advanced training to bring home the latest in hair and fashion to our clients. Recent trips have included education in Berlin, Edinburgh, New York, Brussels and London.
Because of this commitment to education our work has been seen in national and international media and trade publications such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Arizona Republic, Glamour, Celebrity Shortcuts, Good Day Arizona, Allure, Midday Arizona and Cosmopolitan, to name a few.
As an Equal Opportunity Employer, MAS recruits, hires, trains, promotes and makes all management decisions in all areas of our company without regard to race, color religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, medical condition, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or any other unlawful consideration.
