Salon Owner Gives Back to Frontline Nurses – Event Covered by CNN


Marco Pelusi, an award-winning hairstylist, artist and Stylist News contributor wanted to give back to the frontline nurses who put their lives at risk every day during this pandemic.  He recently held a special makeover event in his West Hollywood salon to honor them. 

He teamed up with one of his longtime clients who works with the nursing department at the University of California, Los Angeles to pick out five nurses for a beauty makeover.

“These nurses have given their all and then some over the last year and I wanted to say ‘thank you’ in some way,” Pelusi said. “We thought this would be a great way to honor them as well as put a smile on their face.”

The makeover event generated great interest in the local media and CNN even ran a feature story. You can click on the links below to see coverage of the event from KTLA in Los Angeles as well as some Instagram footage taken behind the scenes during the CNN segment.
