Today, the group has two academies and nine salons in Malaysia.
Over the years, Kimarie has won numerous awards in hairdressing.

Kimarie also took home the Wella Trend Vision Awards for Regional and Theme categories and was the overall Champion of the MYSKILL Competition organized by the Department of Skills Development of Malaysia. Graduates from Kimarie Hair Academy have gone on to achieve great things in the hairdressing industry, from winning the Wella Freestyle Competition to bagging the prestigious L’Oreal Colour Trophy. They have became some of the most well-known stylists in Malaysia, opened their own equally well-known salons and won numerous hairdressing awards.
