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.

MAS is committed to creating a fun, education driven environment of communication and sharing of ideas. If you are like-minded and looking for an opportunity to be a part of a great team and a company to grow and develop with, download the application (link below).

Mission Statement

We are committed to ongoing education of our team and clients through continual open and honest communications. Our mission is to create a friendly and sharing environment of creativity and technical expertise, and to be an ongoing resource of the newest beauty and fashion trends, where we give each client the necessary time to create their ideal look.


Everyone coming to Mane Attraction will have a great experience. We give each client the individual attention necessary to create his or her ideal look.


We will analyze your bone structure, body structure and discuss your lifestyle to recommend the best cut specifically for you. We work with your hair and not against it. Your ideal look will come from how well we have cut your hair not how talented you are with styling it.


Upon analyzing your skin tone, eye color, natural hair color and existing color, we will recommend shades and tones to enhance your look. The technique and placement of the colors will enhance the shape and texture of your haircut.
