  • Mission:
  • The Beauty Bus Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for chronically or terminally ill people and their caregivers by bringing beauty into their lives. Beauty Bus strives to empower our clients, help them maintain dignity and give them respite during difficult times.
    Beauty Bus accomplishes our mission through:
    • In-Home Beauty and Grooming Services: Beauty Bus' core program provides in-home beauty and grooming services, free of charge, to men, women and children whose illness or condition prevents them from accessing a salon or spa.
    • Pop-Up Salons: Beauty Bus creates Pop-Up salon where patients and caregivers can come for a moment of escape and receive a variety of beauty services in one stop, including hair, makeup, nails and facials.
    • Bag of Beauty Program: Beauty Bus provides a Bag of Beauty to each client and caregiver at the time of service so that the pampering can continue. Beauty Bus also sends Bags of Beauty filled with products to chronically or terminally ill men, women and children around the country and their caregivers to remind these isolated people that they are not alone and to bring them smiles. This program is reserved for clients whose illness or condition prevents them from accessing a salon or spa.

  • History:
  • Alicia Marantz Liotta and Wendy Marantz Levine are cousins who were born and raised in Los Angeles. In December 2005, they lost their brave cousin and sister, Melissa Marantz Nealy, at the age of 28 to a degenerative neuromuscular disease. Inspired by the way Melissa lived her life and the happiness, dignity and respite in-home beauty treatments gave her during her illness, Alicia and Wendy became dedicated to bringing a pampering experience and sense of self-esteem to patients and their primary caregivers.
    Since July 2009 Beauty Bus Foundation has provided over 600 beauty and grooming services in private homes, children's hospitals, caregiver retreats and other events throughout Los Angeles County. In the Spring of 2011 Beauty Bus Foundation was featured on ABC's Secret Millionaire as one of the charities picked by entrepreneur Ali Brown.
