SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - On Dec. 18, nuSalon celebrated its one-year anniversary. “It’s truly been a great year,” said owner Ling Sam, who purchased the former Brush Stop and reopened it as nuSalon in December 2013. “We are so thankful to all our clients. Our success wouldn’t be possible without them.”

Located at 132 South Plainfield Avenue in the Walgreen’s shopping center, nuSalon is more than a full-service hair and nail salon. nuSalon offers toe nail reconstruction, single-use paraffin treatments and hair removal using the nufree antibacterial/antimicrobial system. They also provide massage and reflexology and eyelash extensions, perms and tinting. Additionally, nuSalon uses only the highest quality salon exclusive products, including but not limited to, Goldwell, Inoa, Brazilian keratin treatments and Juvexin hair taming systems as well as Shellac and LCN.

“We offer the type of service one would expect in New York without having to travel out of South Plainfield,” said Ling.

Over the past year Ling has made many changes to the salon, including new pedicure chairs, nail stations, a waxing/massage room and other cosmetic changes. She also brought in a computerized record system and a professionally-trained front desk staff to assist clients and make them feel at home. Additionally, nuSalon offers a monthly Blow Dry Boot Camp where clients can learn how to style their own hair using the tools they have at home.

Ling herself has more than 22 years of cosmetology experience, and all eight of nuSalon’s license cosmetologists are always keeping up-to-date with the latest styles, trends and products. Ling often seeks client feedback on the many products she handpicks for the salon. “We want to know what clients like and don’t like before determining if it’s a product we are going to continue to use and carry,” she said, adding that nuSalon’s overall goal is client satisfaction. “We want every client to walk out of here with a smile on their face.”

Dedicated to the community, Ling is proud to have opened her business in South Plainfield and has adopted the local corner - a section of Oak Tree Avenue – which nuSalon maintains monthly.

nuSalon is open Tuesday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday and Monday by appointment. For more information call 908-753-6969 or visit nuSalon.com.

You Meet the Most Amazing People on the Trail

The weather cooperated this weekend, so I went for more than one hike. After all, there are only just over fifty days before my walk to Maine commences, so why not.

This Saturday, some friends dragged me away from housecleaning (thank you!) for a quick jaunt through Watchung Reservation.  While we were there, we ran into two individuals from Westfield; the cosplayers introduced themselves ...

Go Take a Walk

Friday, March 30 was Take a Walk in the Park Day, so I did.  I really didn't have an excuse to not do so; the sun was shining, I had the day off, and I had no plans for the rest of the day.  So after a session with Abbe, my trainer at LifeTime Fitness, I made the short trip to Lake Surprise in Watchung Reservation. 

As I made my way around the lake, it was easy to see how ...

ROXBURY, NJ – She lost her 10-year-old son three years ago in a boating accident on Lake Hopatcong, but Laurie D’Amico is sure her beloved Christopher speaks to her all the time. It’s subtle but firm, she says; messages that come as sparks of recollection, inspiration or intuition.

One of those unexpected inklings led Laura and her husband Chris to a jewelry ...

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.

The German Girl

The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa (Washington Square Press, 2016)

For each of the twelve million victims murdered during World War II there is a gutwrenching story to be told. I have read hundreds of memoirs, biographies, plays, and novels that recount the stories of the martyrs; some are exceptional, some are fair. The German Girl by Armando Lucas Correa, an award-winning journalist, ...

The Skin Collector

The Skin Collector by Jeffery Deaver (Grand Central, 2014)

Jack the Ripper. The Boston Strangler. The Texas Watchtower Killer. The Zodiac Killer. The Angel of Death. The Butcher. BTK. The police and the press have a long history of dubbing serial killers with names that catch the attention of the public, usually having the effect of instilling greater fear and selling more print media so that ...

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Random House, 1965)

 

In Cold Blood is, quite simply, the grand-daddy of true crime writing, dubbed by Capote, himself, as the first non-fiction novel (although Norman Mailer argued the point when he published The Executioner's Song in 1979.) The conditions under which I read In Cold Blood for the first time were pretty weird, which was another ...
