On April 15, Marinello Schools of Beauty presented the American Red Cross with $25,000 to help rebuild Japan after the devastating earthquake and tsunami. The funds are a result of a company-wide Cut-A-Thon fundraiser, which took place March 29 through April 2.
As part of the Cut-A-Thon, 45 Marinello campus locations offered $5 haircuts to the public and $2 wristbands with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross. Marinello's Burbank campus came out on top giving 241 haircuts. Coming in second place was Marinello's Ontario campus and third was its location in Layton, Utah.
"With all our campuses joining together for the greater good, we are pleased Marinello can help quake victims in Japan," said Dr. Nagui Elyas, president and COO of Marinello Schools of Beauty. "We'd like to extend a thank you to the clients who participated in the Cut-A-Thon. We couldn't have done this without their help."
Marinello Schools of Beauty has been providing beauty education on the West Coast since 1905. Offering a variety of cosmetology, nails, and esthetics programs, Marinello has created a proprietary educational system called the Marinello Method based on more than 100 years of experience, which combines theory and hands-on instruction.
