Welcome to Our Family: Beauty Bus Founders, Alicia Marantz Liotta (in yellow) and Wendy Marantz Levine (in pink) with Lindsay Marantz Mauro and Melissa Marantz Nealy (in her signature color – green), the beautiful inspiration for Beauty Bus.

Beauty Bus was founded in 2009 in memory of Melissa Marantz Nealy, whose life was cut short at 28 by a degenerative neuromuscular disease. As her mobility became compromised, preventing Melissa from leaving home, her family arranged for in-home haircuts, manicures and facials. Melissa said these treatments made her feel "human again." Inspired by the dramatic impact of these services on her emotional wellbeing, Melissa’s family founded Beauty Bus Foundation to bring this same dignity, hope and respite to other families when they need it most.
