Janet Wilson

"The main thing is making people feel better. It makes my day."

Janet Wilson regularly volunteers her time to give manicures to Beauty Bus clients. "You really enjoy the one-on-one time It's so appreciate dnad so needed. And it makes you feel good!" Janet was one of the first Beauty Bus volunteers and has served clients both at Pop-Up Salons as well as during in-home visits. "I'm so blessed to be able to give back and still have the empathy and the strength to do it."

The time she spends with the in-home clients she sees on a regular basis goes beyond simply providing beauty services. "You develop a relationship," she says, explaining that clients can come to feel like family. "I love bringing smiles to people's faces and giving a little bit of beauty to make someone's day. "It's all about making clients feel great about how they look and that makes you feel great!"

BEAUTY BUS STORIES

The sense of normalcy in a place so far from normal meant so much to all of us. Mom received a haircut, grandma a facial, and Bella a manicure. They gave all of us new energy to face the reality of what was to come. There is something kind and comforting when someone holds your hand or brushes your hair. There is a moment of peace and joyful distraction.
— Ceyonne, client at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital Pop-Up Salon

Even though I’m quadriplegic, can’t speak, swallow, or breathe without the aid of a mechanical vent, and write using my eyes through a communication device, I still want to look my best at all times. Call me vain, but you wouldn’t believe the number of people who see me, look past my wheelchair and ventilator face-mask, and say stuff like, ‘Man, your hair’s getting long.’ I can’t say enough positive things about the Beauty Bus. We found their service so extraordinary and helpful. The world really would be better if their operation was larger.
