Mane University Beauty Retreat


Mane Masters Scotty Kunha, Mario Dedivanovic, Jen Atkin and Tracey Cunningham


If you are passionate about all things hair, chances are you have heard of Mane Addicts. What originally started as a profile on Instagram created by Jen Atkins (also founder of Ouai Haircare) has grown into a website, university and social media powerhouse lead by a team of dedicated professionals.

 Mane Addicts recently hosted their first ever Mane Univerisity Beauty Retreat at the beautiful Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort in Hawaii. Susie Dimov, director of the luxurious Kundalini salon in Canberra, was lucky enough to attend this incredible weekend workshop.

 On hand were celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, Mane Masters Scotty Cunha and Jen Atkins as well as celebrity colourist Tracey Cunningham. In a series of workshops and masterclasses over the weekend each of these influential hair and beauty artists shared the secrets behind their signature looks.

Susie described her favourite part of the weekend as hearing the inspirational stories told by the Mane Masters. ‘They’ve all worked very hard to get where they are and none of it was by chance. They have experienced many knock backs, however they didn’t give up, and they kept trying.’

‘I employ so many young people at Kundalini,’ said Susie. ‘I wish more young people in the industry got to hear just how hard they worked to make it in the industry today. They didn’t give up, but just keep trying to be the best they could be.’

Lucky for the team at Kundalini, and for us, Susie is able to share her first hand experience of learning from these inspirational professionals at the Mane Univerisity Beauty Retreat. Now all you have to do to take advantage is to book an appointment at Kundalini.
