WORDS FROM THE
Publisher Kathleen Sanchez It’s a new month, a New Year, and we are back with another issue. We have a lot to talk about. Let’s get started. We are now conducting our First Annual Reader’s Choice Poll. You can vote for your best restaurants, salons, car dealers, toy stores, schools, doctors, realtors, teachers, coaches, painters, concert venues, donut shops, you name it. The categories of things you can vote for are listed on pg. 16. All you have to do is go to our website, 909Magazine.com, select your city, and start voting. Everyone who completes the poll will be placed in our drawing for a brand new Google Nexus Tablet. The results of the poll and the winner of the tablet will be announced in our “Best of Issue” in April. The poll is live right now. This is your chance to show your appreciation for the best businesses in your city. Let’s vote! We have received several requests for clarification of our distribution. Let me take this opportunity to explain how we do this. This month we will be mailing to 45,707 homes in Upland & Rancho Cucamonga. Next month we will mail 45,707 more magazines to the homes in these cities that we did not reach this month. In other words, we are now mailing to every single home and business in Upland & Rancho Cucamonga, for a total circulation of 91,414 homes. However, if you do not want to miss an issue you can get a free digital subscription to the magazine on our website. Just want to remind everyone that we email out 50% off deals from local salons, restaurants, car washes and other locations in Upland & Rancho Cucamonga. You can sign up for the deals on our website (909Deals.com) or simply text 909deals (one word) to 99000 to be automatically registered. When you register you can select a local school to support and every time you buy one of our deals one dollar from the deal will be donated to the school you have chosen to support. The more people signed up to support a particular school the more money that school will make. We have iPhone and Droid Apps for the deals. These apps also have coupons from local merchants for you to use. Just show the coupon on your phone, the merchant will tap the “Redeem” button, and that’s it. We made it easy. We intend to start a reader’s comment section in the magazine. Please email us with any comments, complaints or suggestions. We want to hear from you. It’s your magazine, we just mail it to your home. Until next time,

INSIDE claremont Cycling in Claremont
Claremont is perfect, as it offers routes through Indian Hill, Mount Baldy and through the Glendora Mountain Road at the top of Benson. When going through Azusa Canyon and Glendora Mountain Road there are 30 plus routes that Muschler’s group has used. Although many cycling groups are from other cities, Claremont does have its own groups like Jax Bike Shop. They ride Thursday nights at 7 p.m. to Donut Man in Glendora and back, where they enjoy some good doughnuts along with their bike ride.
Claremont also has the fastriding Bud’s Group, who Muschler said are mostly tier 1, 2 and 3 sponsor-leveled athletes. They actually originated from Jax Bike Shop when it was known as Bud’s Bike Shop. This group has been riding for the past 30 years. If Christmas was good to some of our readers, there will be a few extra cyclists on the roads this year. So there could be some new cycling members or even groups. Claremont is the perfect location to have some fun and tryout new trails for cycling.
ABC’s Keeping You Safe
It is a new year and it still remains that cycling is a popular Claremont activity. It is interesting to know that most cycling groups come from neighboring cities and not necessarily from Claremont. Although, with Claremont’s abundant trail options, who wouldn’t travel there for some good cycling? Andy Muschler, a CPA from La Verne who lives in Upland, is a former member of the Cycling Connection from Rancho Cucamonga with 180 other riders who frequent Claremont. “Most of these groups actually originate in Rancho Cucamonga or San Dimas,” said Muschler, who rode with the Cycling Connection for four years.
We have all enjoyed another New Year’s celebration and Claremont has remained a safe city, even while offering a 2 a.m. last call at one establishment. Claremont has a great night scene that has also been kept safe with the Claremont Police Department enforcing the ABCs. This is not making the intoxicated recite the alphabet, but is rather known as the Alcohol Beverage Control state program.
Claremont received a grant this year from the state for ABC. A yearly state budget for the Alcohol Beverage Control state program, selectively awards grants to applying agencies. The grants are used for sting operations, meeting overtime costs, education and enforcement to reduce alcohol to minors. Sobriety and DUI checkpoints are good deterrents to breaking the law, but so is the use of decoys
iphone & Droid app
INSIDE claremont known as “shoulder tapping.” “We have several types of operations, one of them is called the shoulder tap which is where we have minor decoys, someone who is 17, 18, 19 years old,” said Claremont Police Officer Hardin. “We get them outside of a liquor store or someplace where you can buy alcohol. They’ll ask customers coming inside ‘Hey, I’m not 21, can you buy me some beer?’ If the person purchases alcohol for the minor, we’ll contact them and they’ll either get a citation or get arrested with a misdemeanor.” Sting operations even include decoys walking into restaurants or bars to try and purchase alcohol. Typically, Hardin said that other departments that employ decoys are doing so through grants from ABC. With such a great program available, Claremont police are able to make sure locals can enjoy their late nights in Claremont.
Becoming a Reserve Police Officer If you have ever thought about wanting to protect your loved ones and do more to help enforce law in your city, then the police reserves might be right for you. Those interested in pursuing a law enforcement career or serving as a part-time officer with the Claremont Police Department can start looking in 2013 to become a reserve officer. Once the necessary requirements are met, these reserves are
AAA AAA GOLD
given the same equipment (including firearms) and arrest powers as any other officer. They protect and serve for special events, or where Claremont PD needs them. Claremont currently has three reserves and is always looking to add more to the pool. The only difference between a reserve and a full-time officer is the pay. Reserves can continue any existing full-time jobs while protecting Claremont as a part-time officer, or they can be put on a wait list if they’d like to join Claremont PD fulltime. “What we do is put them through our training program as if they were a full-time paid officer,” said Sergeant Robert Rauchfuss, who is in charge of the reserve program. “That way if we do have an opening in the future, instead of going outside, we have a pool of officers that are already trained, that have already been to the academy, and already know our city’s policies and procedures,” said Rauchfuss. Rauchfuss does interviews
twice a year after he gets enough applicants. Since 2007, Rauchfuss has promoted three reserves to fulltime officers. “Once they go through all three levels of the reserve academy, they have gone through the same training as any officer would,” said Rauchfuss. For someone with no law enforcement experience, it takes 12 months for an extended police academy. Rauchfuss said this commitment usually takes Tuesday and Thursday nights and all day on the weekends. The academy is doable while working a full-time job. The only drawback to Claremont’s department is the pay. Once 16 volunteer hours per month are met, reserves get $40 for uniform cleaning. Other departments might pay hourly. It is still good for those who desire to protect Claremont. For those interested in becoming a reserve, they can go to the city of Claremont’s Web site to see the reserve officer requirements under employment opportunities.

mas mulch. All they need is proof of residency. Mulch helps prevent weeds and keep moisture with plants by helping the soil retain water. “Yeah. That would be effective,”
said a worker at Upland’s Highland Gardening Center about Christmas trees as mulch. So this year, instead of putting your tree in the garbage, put it to good use in your garden as mulch.
Packed House Quiet as a Mouse
Christmas is over but you can still give your plants some holiday spirit this January by having the city turn your Christmas tree into Christmas mulch. Christmas tree mulch is something the city of Upland is offering this year. When recycling the tree, residents can put the tree out on collection day like always and cut the tree into pieces not longer than 6 ft. Trees can be collected on pickup days from December 26th to January 21st. Then on Saturday, Jan 26th, Upland residents can go to the Upland Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center at the City Yard from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for their Christ-
Upland’s City Council December 1st meeting was packed, but the audience was still quiet as a mouse as the city budget was discussed by city councilmembers. The biggest worry was not to end up like San Bernardino. It seemed that no subject was untouched. It was described as the lowest budget in 10-12 years. At that time Upland city’s reserves were down from $4.2 million to $932,000. “No more money for sidewalk repairs. No more money for street repairs. That’s why we’re taking recommendations,” said one councilman. Street repairs, sidewalk repairs and alley repairs are underfunded or possibly not funded at all cur-
rently. Post-employment benefits are also underfunded. The city has already reduced full-time employees by 25%. One of the proposed changes was also to ask employees for concessions, which would save $1.03-$1.36 million this year. Some budget reductions included exploring alternative ways to provide various city services, such as efficiency with fire and police services, animal services, library, inspection services, added city service fees, fleet maintenance, information systems and engineering services. Six council members voted on different measures. Councilman Gino Fillipi did not want to
INSIDE Upland finalize the recommendations because there was a lack of consistency in the total savings that he said went from $2 million to $4 million in estimated needs. At the same time though, the council wanted to meet most of the budget head on since it would just cost future council members grief if they didn’t start solving problems now. In the end, council members had given City Manager Stephen Dunn the ability to move forward with a list of long-term recommendations to free up money in the general fund. City Officials are working very hard to rebuild the reserves. After some exploration and debate it was determined by the members that the proposed budget cuts will come back to the full city council for further discussion on January14th.
Pine Haven Cafe: Dining to Help Pets On December 1st Pine Haven Café and Catering joined Upland Animal Services and Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center to partner for the Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption Event. The restaurant/café gave 18% of its receipts for that day to both shelters. The money will help out needy cats, dogs, guinea pigs, and the
like, to get shelter and needed care by the two city services which consist of mostly volunteers. Sharon Ellis is the owner of Pine Haven. This is the first time her business has given donations to animal services but they have been active with helping other groups before. “We have worked with the shelters before,” said Ellis. “We are involved with a lot of the organizations like Foothill Family Shelter, not [just] an animal shelter obviously. We did a fundraiser for them in September and when we did that we put it out there that if anyone would like to do some fundraising we’d love to help you out and they kind of reached out to us.” The Rancho Cucamonga shelter came to show off some animals at the Upland shelter which is a block south of Pine Haven. It was a good day to also participate in the Winter Wonderland Pet Photos where pet owners were able to bring their animals (old and new) to take holiday photos for a $10 donation. This may be their first time donating to the city’s animal service, but Pine Haven Café is reaching out to different groups. “There’s a lot of local charities around; some are more well-known than others,” said Ellis. Jon Knowlton of the Upland Animal Services said this was the first time a restaurant has given help with donations to animal shelters. Along with the donations, the event was a success with Upland having
14 animals adopted. It is great to see two communities come together for a common cause.
INSIDE rancho cucamonga Jump For Joy With Your Toddlers
“There’s always a demand for more, and we always wish we could offer more.” A woman named AJ was the energetic moderator who said the libraries have been around for 7-8 years, offering these kinds of family programs for free. There are other programs for kids and the whole family, like cul-
tural arts nights that are offered quarterly. Other events include crafts, story tellers, art exhibits, and musical groups; they are all free for the most part. Join in on the fun and excitement with your family. For more information and on how to rsvp, check out the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center Web site.
Health Plans Increase Again
What time is it? It’s family time! For parents who want to start 2013 spending some quality time with their toddlers and (young) family they can come with them to Toddler Time story time! It’s exactly as it sounds. For fans of toddler shows like Barney, comes the chance to bring your kids to story time at the Paul A. Biane Library of the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center. Here, as a group of a dozen parents and toddlers, you will sing along with a library moderator reading children’s books out loud. These events are very popular and must be rsvp’d early. “The story times require registration in advance. They usually fill up within less than an hour when we open our registration,” said Children’s Librarian Jason Daly.
Anthem Blue Cross and many other companies will be issuing rate increases in 2013 for individual health plans. In the past, rate hikes also affected group plans that are often offered with city and union employment. Rancho Cucamonga has seen rate increases in the past and made a decision like any other person would to find better rates. “Up until last year we had Anthem Blue Cross and Kaiser both,” said Human Resources Director Chris Paxton. “Our broker came back with bad news for us. For Anthem Blue Cross they were looking
at over a 30% [rate increase]. That just wasn’t going to work for us.” The city now goes through Blue Shield and Kaiser for its PPO and HMO insurance. Most employees select HMO coverage. Although HMOs have limited networks and won’t allow people to see certain specialist doctors or hospitals, most of the premiums for HMOs, like Kaiser, are almost always covered by employer contributions, as does city of Rancho Cucamonga. Rancho Cucamonga covers a fixed amount for two different tiers of workers. City employees hired
INSIDE rancho cucamonga before 1996 get $995 a month towards their insurance. People hired after 96’ get $700 a month. Paxton said the new change did require two conditions with the health insurance companies. One was signing a three-year contract. The other was discouraging healthy employees from leaving group plans by getting rid of a $200/$300 in lieu of benefit that employees would usually get if they opted out of the insurance. A large factor behind insurance rate hikes is when a group has too many pre-existing individuals that constantly use insurance benefits; there aren’t enough healthy individuals who don’t use the insurance to balance out the premiums. Although group HMO insurance rates may be well covered through work, individual HMO health plans for families are more expensive than PPO insurance. If getting insurance outside of work it is usually best to speak with a broker. Paxton said the city does have a lot of part-time employees who are responsible for providing their own insurance. With new laws they may be required to offer them insurance compensation as well. Even if you do not work for the city, it is good to know what is going on with current health plans. Many employers will be facing these same rate increases, which will affect their employees as well.
Santa Barbara Townhomes has Joined the Healthy RC Smoke-Free Recognition Program
The Smoke-Free Recognition Program is part of the Healthy RC initiative, which strives to encourage a healthy and sustainable lifestyle for those who live, work, and play in the community. To be considered for recognition, participants must demonstrate that they have taken significant steps beyond current local, State, and Federal smoking regulations to provide a smoke-free environment for their residents, patrons and employees. At a minimum, eligible apartment communities must dedicate at least 75 percent of their apartment units as smoke-free; hotels must provide 100 percent non-smoking guest rooms and lobby; and restaurants must dedicate their entire outdoor dining area as smoke-free. Eligible participants will be invited to a City Council meeting to receive a Certificate of Recognition designating their business as a smoke-free establishment. They will also be listed in City publications and highlight-
ed on the City’s online registry of smoke-free establishments. Santa Barbara Townhomes, located at 10855 Church Street, is a brand new development by Lewis Apartment Communities that features lush landscaping, outdoor gathering spaces, and a 5,500 square foot recreation center overlooking a pool and spa. Their smoke-free efforts go above and beyond current smoking regulations and include 100 percent of their apartment units designated as smoke-free, smoke-free outdoor common areas, and smoking prohibited within 20 feet of entrances to indoor common areas. This smokefree environment allows residents and visitors to breathe easy while they enjoy the wonderful outdoor amenities offered throughout the Santa Barbara Community. Santa Barbara Townhomes was recognized for their smokefree efforts at a November Rancho Cucamonga City Council Meeting.

10 New Year’s Resolutions to Help Seniors Stay Active & Vibrant The beginning of a New Year is an ideal opportunity to make a fresh start. If you’re a maturing adult, you can benefit from resolutions that are specifically geared toward helping you maintain physical and mental health, improving your social life, and helping you life a happier, fuller life. This year, vow to incorporate these ideas into your life: 1. Eat more fresh foods. While processed foods are easy to prepare for a meal, make a promise to eat more fresh healthy fruits and vegetables and you’ll see a noticeable difference in the way you look and feel. 2. Read at least one book per month. Set aside a certain time during the day to do some serious reading. Keeping your mind active is vital as you advance in years. The books at your local library are free and it will get you out of the house! 3. Make a commitment to walk one mile at least twice a week. It is tempting, especially if you live alone, to stay in your pajamas all day if you have nothing planned. Getting up and out will not only benefit you physically, but the fresh air will do wonders for your well being. If you can’t start off with a mile, build up to it. As always, check with your doctor before starting an exercise plan.
4. Call on friends more often. Ask them to a take in a play or a movie, or just chit chat. People who are involved with other people stay healthier and live longer. Make one new friend this year! 5. Volunteer for a worthy cause. Organizations are always looking for volunteers and love the loyalty and work ethic of older adults. If you are healthy and mobile, volunteer to help other seniors get to doctor appointments or the grocery store. It will nourish your soul. 6. Challenge your brain. Keep your mind in shape with games, crossword puzzles and brain teasers. These help the brain’s speed and memory. For maximum benefits, spend 30 minutes a day on brainrelated activities. 7. Take an adult education class at a nearby high school. It’s never too late to learn something new – maybe Spanish, a computer course, or flower arranging. You might learn a hobby you enjoy, and meet people who share the same interest. 8. Make your home safer. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in three adults over the age of 65 falls each year. Many of these falls are preventable, especially if
home safety tips are implemented. Moving cords out of walkways, having good lighting near beds, and taping down edges of carpet and rugs can help tremendously to decrease the number and severity of falls for seniors. 9. Schedule regular doctor visits. Unfortunately, with age comes an increased risk of illness and other complications such as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and other medical conditions. Making sure that you schedule a regular annual checkup can help in early detection and prevention of many diseases. 10. Laugh a little! Research has shown that the health benefits of laughter are far-ranging. Laughter can help relieve pain, bring greater happiness, and even increase immunity.

Is your family too busy to be a family?
he summer flew by too quickly and school is back in session. As a working mother of two, I look forward to the summer as my family gets a wellneeded break from all of the activities that we do during the school year. In fact, at the end of each school year I vow to not over schedule my family the following fall. Despite my best efforts, the schedule seems to fill up quickly with soccer practice, Karate class, and Boy Scouts. I add to the misery by committing to volunteer activities for the school board and church. From my perspective, our activities are getting us to spend time together. In the end, we spend a lot of time in the same space, but do not interact with one another. Before I know it, my family is too busy to be a family.
During the week, I transform into mom the chef, soccer mom, karate-mom, cheerleading-mom, and volunteermom. At times is seems as the entire family is like a family of hamsters, running on a wheel at every waking moment. While you may be spending time with your family physically during these activities, it is not a substitute for quality family time. Most of the activities we enroll our children in do not involve direct, one on one, interaction with our children. Even when I am leading the activity, I am not spending quality time with my son. As the year progresses, my family spends more time doing solitary activities and less time interacting with each other. The emotional distance that overbooking activities creates is difficult to reverse, but not impossible. If you notice that your family is spending more time shuffling from activity to activity rather than interacting with one another, then it is time to incorporate family
activities that they are involved with. Allow them to speak freely about their desire to continue with the activity. Many children will become physically and emotionally exhausted if they do not have down time. Children are blessed with so much energy, but many do not know how to recognize when they need rest. If you have come to the realization that your child is overbooked with activities, have him list his activities in the order that he enjoys doing them. Make the final decision on which activities you will exit. Next, create a list of activities that your family has enjoyed in the past, but no longer do. When I performed this activity, I was surprised at how many activities we eliminated from our routines. For example, we love to bowl and used to go bowling twice per month. Friday nights used to be â€˜junk food and movie night.â€™ Our schedule was so booked up with activities, that we abandoned both activities. We also cut back on family time due to me
returning to the workplace. Finally, incorporate some simple activities into your family’s routine. I have provided some things that even the busiest family can do together. Family Night – Designate one night per week as family night. Families with teens may need to designate one night during the week. Most families already spend time watching TV in the evenings, but in separate rooms. Gather everyone in the family room, turn off all cell phones and lap tops, and choose a show that everyone will enjoy watching. Make some popcorn and get some sinful take out food. Sunday morning breakfast– At least one Sunday per month, sit down and eat a hearty breakfast with your family. Engage the entire family by having everyone plan the menu and cook the meal. To make it special, cook all the favorites, sausage, pancakes, bacon, etc. After breakfast, encourage the family to sit on the couch and read the Sunday paper. If you have little ones, encourage them to bring some toys into the living room and play with them. Pray with your children – Give thanks to your higher power either before dinner or before bed on a regular basis. Spirituality brings a family together. Plan short outings – Bowling, a regular trip to the ice cream parlor, or shopping at the farmer’s market creates memories and bonds the family together. Break out the Board games– Remember the games that you loved as a kid? Monopoly, Yahtzee, Candy Land, and Life are played by families until this day. You already know the rules and could probably teach your kids a thing or two about playing! Even though they probably will not admit it, teenagers love to play games. Celebrate the little things– While it may seem trivial to you, an A on an Algebra test may be a major accomplishment to your child. A cupcake with a candle and a congratulations card goes a long way. Purchase several cards ahead of time
and a few decorated cupcakes from the supermarket and keep them in the freezer. Then you will be able to take some time celebrating your child’s life on any given day. Take a class together – If your child is interested in Karate classes, but not thrilled about testing for higher belts, seek out a class that the entire family can participate in. Community recreation centers provide a wide range of family activities that only cost a few dollars to do. Talk it over – Have a family meeting to discuss upcoming vacations or outings. Allow your children to have an equal vote in the process. If you have teens, this will enable them to buy into the activity. This will make them more likely to participate. In thinking back over my childhood, I recall many happy memories that were shared with my family. Some of the happiest and most vivid ones were created in our home or while we were spending a little family time together. Give your family time to be a family so that your family can create memories as well.

Meet Your Neighbors The Ramos Family of Rancho Cucamonga
909: How long have you guys lived in Rancho Cucamonga?
909: What could be done to improve your city?
Jesse and Melissa: 6 years.
Jesse and Melissa: It would be a huge relief if the city would improve our road access to our schools. In addition, recoup funds lost by our school district.
909: What made you decide to live in Rancho Cucamonga? Jesse and Melissa: Our family was growing and we needed more space for our kids to run around and play. Also, finding a city with a great school district was especially important. Rancho Cucamonga fits our family’s needs perfectly. 909: How do you like Rancho Cucamonga? Jesse and Melissa: Rancho is a great city. It’s quiet and very family oriented. The people who live here are friendly and care about their community. It’s definitely a place where families can settle and invest the rest of their lives here. We enjoy it’s diversity in people.
909: How did you two meet? Melissa: Jesse and I met at a social venue in March of 1997. We exchanged phone numbers, but neither one of us made contact. Coincidentally, two weeks later, we saw each other at the same location. From that day on, we never parted. 909: What made you fall in love with her? Jesse: I fell in love with her “spunk”, her intelligence and her gentle heart. Melissa has a very caring nature for others. She is an amaz-
ing wife and mother. 909: What made you fall in love with him? Melissa: Jesse is the most sincere and honest person I know. He has a huge heart and cares for the wellbeing of others. Most importantly he is a family man. I fell in love with his playful personality and his passion for life. 909: What do you two do for a living? Melissa: Jesse is a physician’s assistant and has been practicing for over 14 years. I have been a happy homemaker for 9 years and recently became a licensed cosmetologist. 909: Do you think your jobs are challenging? Melissa: Our jobs are very chal-
lenging for the both of us. It’s important to us that our clients are very happy with the services we provide. For Jesse, a patient’s health and quality of life is priority. He takes his job very seriously and is respected in the health industry.
joys camping and taking road trips to San Diego and Las Vegas. On most weekends, the kids bring all of their blankets and pillows downstairs for movies and popcorn. Quality time together in each other’s arms is what we all enjoy most.
909: Tell us a little bit about your family?
909: How did the kids affect your life when they were born?
Melissa: Jesse comes from a large Mexican family, and is the oldest of five boys. I’m Eurasian and am an only child. Having three children has been a wonderful blessing to us both. Jakob is 8 years old and is very sweet natured. He enjoys science, art and making people happy. Adrian is 6 years old and loves to play baseball. He enjoys the outdoors and helping others. Emma, our youngest, is 4 years old. She has a great balance of dressing up like a princess, but enjoys playing rough with her brothers. She also loves to sing and dance.
Melissa: When the kids came into our lives, it was a huge adjustment. Jesse had to pick up more hours at work and finding alone time together was difficult. Nine years later, we’ve learned how to balance everything. Our children give us purpose; our greatest gifts from God.
909: What do you guys like to do together? Jesse and Melissa: Our family en-
the world, where would it be? Jakob, Adrian and Emma: We want to live in Florida, so we can be closer to Disneyworld! 909: Do you guys like our magazine? Jesse and Melissa: Yes. We think the magazine is great. It’s nice to have something just for us and our community. It keeps us updated on what’s current in our city and the cities around us.
909: Tell us something unique or special about your kids? Jesse and Melissa: Our children are very caring and compassionate people. They enjoy helping others and giving back to the less fortunate. For the kids: 909: If you could move anywhere in

Much like choosing a health care professional, choosing a salon can be a daunting task. There are many factors to consider, and the outcome can have a tremendous impact on your sense of self and wellbeing. At Clippings Hair Design, we take our profession seriously. We strive for excellence in all we do so you can trust us with the care of your hair, skin and nails. We understand some of the common challenges clients have with salons and make every effort to exceed your expectations.

education plays in our salon. Although a licensed salon professional has completed the training required to obtain their state license, beauty schools do not necessarily equip salon professionals with advanced skills or the hottest techniques. You can feel confident in our team’s expert hands. They regularly attend advanced hands-on training to master the hottest trends, stay inspired and keep their skills polished. From head to toe, the Clippings team has you covered with our full service salon menu. We feature women’s cut, color, texture, styling, skin care, nail care, men’s grooming and even special occasion hair & makeup packages. We have partnered with leading manufacturers to bring you the best in hair, skin and nail care. Featuring products by: Eufora, Eufora Beautifying Elixirs, Eufora Hero for Men, Unite, Dermalogica and OPI. Have you ever had a stylist double-book during your appointment time? It can make you feel rushed through the salon, almost
resembling an assembly line of sorts. You won’t experience that at Clippings. Your appointment is our first priority. We dedicate your appointment time exclusively to you, so you can enjoy the one-on-one relaxation of having your salon professional’s full attention. Our stylists even take the time to give you a rejuvenating scalp massage and hot towel treatment with every hair service.

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE IN CHOOSING WINDOW BLINDS There are a lot of window treatments available, which can make choosing one a hard decision. Now that you have chosen to install window blinds in your home, you will also need to decide on which type of blinds will be best suited for each room of your home. Remember that in whatever window treatments you choose, you need to consider two things: functionality and artistic quality. This rule applies even to window blinds. However, different rooms in your home have different needs, there are specific window blinds that will be best suited for them. Here is a quick guide on how to choose window blinds for your home.
Blinds for the Living Room The living room is perhaps the easiest room to choose window treatments for. There are limited considerations in terms of getting wet or stained, etc. You can play with whatever type of blinds you want for your living room. Just remember to complement your furniture.
Blinds for the Bed Room Window blinds with relaxing colors and soft fabrics are usually the best ones to be used in the bed room. This is especially true for cluttered and overly decorated bedrooms. Blinds that can keep out the light are a plus for some. For the bed room, roman and roller blinds
are usually appropriate. These window treatments have a wide blackout range perfect for blocking out sunlight when you want extra hours of sleep.
Blinds for the Bathroom Choosing window treatments for the bathroom can be a little tricky. You need to factor in humidity and condensation, because these can affect the quality of your blinds in the long run. Roller and venetian blinds that are water resistant are a great option for the bathroom. You should avoid fabrics and real wood as they can collect mildew in a heavily damp environment.
Blinds for the Kitchen We also have factors to consider in the kitchen. Changes in the room temperature as we cook can affect the quality of the window treatments that we have. It will also be worthy to note that some homes are designed to let more sunlight in the kitchen. You will then need to consider blinds that have a wide range of blackouts if you have such a home. Never ever use heavy fabrics as they easily absorb cooking smells and moisture. In addition, choose something that is easy to wipe clean as your blinds may get splashed by kitchen materials every now and then. The most recommended blinds for kitchens are those that combine the practical nature of Venetian
blinds with the look of Wood Venetian blinds. It is not really wood so you will not have worry about the wood warping in humid conditions. With these tips in mind, you should be able to pick out the perfect window treatments for your home.
