Attitudes Salon Nominated For 2 Best of the Desert Awards!

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Attitudes Salon in Apple Valley has been nominated for the 2009 Best of the Desert award. Salon owner Jennifer Vacarri sat down to chat with me about what makes the Salon so special.

Me: How long has Attitudes Salon been in Business?

Jennifer: We opened the salon in 2005.

Me: What do you enjoy most about owning your own salon?

Jennifer: The people it’s a joy coming to work each day knowing the people I see each day are like family.

Me: What makes Attitudes Salon different than other Salons?

Jennifer: We do a lot of charity work. We have sponsored a cut-a-thon, giving free haircuts. All tips and donations we received were given to the Hurricane Katrina Relief. We donate hair to Locks of Love and collected toys for our military troops and their families.

We are also starting a program after the first of the year where we send our hair clippings to Matter of Trust which  is an organization that  use the hair clippings for the environment to soak up oil from spills.

So there you have it folks, as you can see Attitudes Salon, in my opinion, stands out among all the others. I am super excited for them knowing firsthand how hard the staff works to make sure their customers come first!!!!

Helping Those In Need

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

With the holidays quickly approaching most of us are running around like mad trying to get our parties' planned, house decorated, and buying gifts for our loved ones. Let's stop for a moment and remember the people that are less fortunate. For thanksgiving I arranged a canned food drive at the office, it was a success and all of us felt great knowing we were helping those in need.

Burlington Coat Factory is taking coat donations. They will take coats, hats, scarves, & gloves. The items will be donated to a local charitable organization. So lets clean out our closets and head over to a store near you.

Is there something special you like to do to help those in need? Let us know!!!

Happy Holidays!
