Most Creative Businesses in West Hollywood

Creative City Awards: Honoring Innovation in Business | West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce | West Hollywood, CA.

Tonight, the Chamber will honor some of the most creative business in West Hollywood.  Some of our faves have been nominated.  Last year, Vanity Girl was nominated for Creative Communications, for the way that I’ve been able to put my brand on the map — with a little bit of Online Fame plus a little bit of Offline elbow grease.  I lost out to a little known company called HBO (hello!), but honestly!  That was truly a case of, “I’m just happy to be nominated!”

At any rate, this year I found myself behind the camera, producing some of the pre-event pieces and even working on capturing the night.  More of that to come – but in the meantime make sure to click on the link above to see if one of your favorite WeHo Businesses have been nominated!

2013 Emmy Hair Recap with Marco Pelusi

Join me as I chat with globally recognized celebrity colorist Marco Pelusi.  His salon is smack dab in the heart of ultra chic Robertson Blvd, right near Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR Restaurant (having dinner there this Saturday with my travel blogger gal pals of FourPlayGo), Christian Loubitan and the ultra glam Phyllis Morris showroom.  This street might be my fave in the West Hollywood Design District.

On the vanity side, we talk Fall Hair Trends and the evolution of ombre and Emmy Hair!  Of course – I had to sneak a little bit of Breaking Bad since I binge watched the entire series in two weeks, thanks to my BFF and TV curator Julie.  Don’t judge me.

On the business side, Marco talks about how he got his start, how he garnered his celebrity clientele and how Facebook and Twitter factor into his marketing mix.   He grew up in the upscale salon business and then was recruited by Italian and Los Angeles companies to train on his techniques and he generously gives some advice to up and coming hairdressers in this podcast.
