American Salon Exclusive: Matt Beck and Mark Bustos

Mark Bustos has caught the attention of the media –everything from the New York Times and Huffington Post to the Today Show, other leading news programs and our own beauty trade media – by simply being himself. A humble, soft spoken celebrity stylist/mens groomer with a gift for connecting with people all of kinds, Mark burst into the industry consciousness following mass media reports of his quietly cutting the hair of homeless men in NYC. The New York based hairstylist sat down with Matt Beck at IBS NY to share his story.
