Why did we start CHEA?


We came to the conclusion that it was pointless for us to amass knowledge on curly hair only to keep it to ourselves. When we realised there was no quality professional education in Australia, a lightbulb went on in our heads.

Given that not everyone can afford to travel abroad for further education, we chose to share our knowledge and experience. Our aim is to build a curly community and empower, educate and inspire YOU, the next generation of curly hair artists!

Amanda’s Education

  • In 2013 I became a Deva Inspired Advanced Stylist. This course was my light bulb moment. It was when it all came together for me.
  • In 2014 I joined a group CHA,(Curly Hair Artistry), an astonishingly passionate collection of Curly Hair Artists in the world and have attended 2 CHA symposiums (Detroit, 2014 and Washington DC, 2015) to further advance my skills in all types of curly hair from wavy through to super curly.
  • In March 2018 I became Australia’s first and only Deva Certified Stylist.
  • In June 2019 I completed the Cut It Kinky class, working with tight curls & coils. Working with tight curls, kinks & coils gives me complete joy.

Peter’s Education

I have been trained by Amanda Rickman of Purely Curls, Australia and Ron Suriano of Moisture Salon, New York. I have been a hydrationist for 6 years and successfully trained over 80 Australian hairstylists in that time.

I completed further hydration education with Southern Curl in Atlanta and with Evan Joseph in New York. I am also a Certified Innersense Organic Beauty Educator.

My passion is to help curlies to achieve the best results they can through the art of hydration and correct product application.

don’t just take our word for it..

This intense weekend learning all things curly is a must! Amanda and Peter are very passionate and generous in their teaching. My team and I at @ 52 Hair Co, learnt so much. Highly recommend!!”
