Winners were announced on the night of Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the gala hosted by the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at The London West Hollywood.

The nominees were chosen for their innovation in their approach to business and/or creative merits in product and service by the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Membership, its Board of Directors and the Special Events Committee. Marco Pelusi, the studio's owner and guiding spirit, was nominated for the John Chase Art & Design Award which is given to a business that falls into the categories of art, performance art, fashion, design, architecture or any other creative arts realm.

A criterion for selection was that the business be a Chamber Member and have made significant contributions to the West Hollywood community.

Marco’s premier studio, Marco Pelusi Hair Studio, is located in the heart of West Hollywood Design District on Robertson Boulevard. His involvement with his neighborhood runs deep.

"We need to contribute to our community as salon and spa owners," says Pelusi. "The community is our home and also our clients' home. You get what you give. Give to your community and it will come back to you. And the cycle will never really end! I also feel it's important just to show up -- life is really about just showing up. Your/my presence at community events speaks for itself, and shows support and leadership."
