Mayor Anesh became the first customer at Cosmo 21 when he surprised Revathy by asking for a shape up. The mayor did appear to look younger, but twenty-one years of age may have been pushing it.

“What a beautiful place, and Revathy gave me a great cut,” said Anesh. “I wish her and her family much success.”

Revathy has over ten years of experience in the beauty services industry and hopes to open additional spots in New York City and Philadelphia after she gets fully settled into the South Plainfield location. Her husband, son and daughter were with her for the opening.

Positions are still available at Cosmo 21 as they look to fill out their staff. The store can be reached by phone at 908-205-8792 and online at and
