Breast Cancer Awareness
Joico’s Beauty for Hope Initiative is a year-round campaign that includes fundraising events and promotions plus education, support, encouragement and inspiration for professional stylists bent on setting up their own breast cancer-related events. In 2012, Joico announced a new program that essentially doubles its annual efforts in its fight against breast cancer by partnering with Beauty Systems Group to offer special edition Joico and ISO Breast Cancer products benefiting Susan G. Komen For the Cure. Visit the Susan G. Komen website.
To acknowledge the salons and stylists who continue to participate in Beauty for Hope events Joico has created an online destination offering downloadable breast cancer programs – including cut-a-thons, silent auctions, “Touch of Pink” ribbon events and service and product promotional programs. Each salon can customize the downloads to their individual businesses and communities. Each package contains posters, planners, letters, press alerts and other printables.

The Beauty Bus Foundation was founded in loving memory of Melissa Marantz Nealy who passed away the age of 28 from a degenerative neuromuscular disease. Melissa loved a good day at the spa. When her ability to leave the home became compromised, Co-Founder Alicia Marantz Liotta, Melissa’s cousin, was able to schedule in-home beauty services through her connections within the beauty industry. Witnessing the hope, happiness and respite these services brought to Melissa, Alicia and Co-Founder Wendy Marantz Levine, Melissa’s sister, were inspired to launch Beauty Bus Foundation.
