CALDWELL, NJ — Nicole celebrated the official grand opening of her new salon, The Lash Lady, with a celebratory ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sunday at 79 Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell. Nicole welcomed Caldwell Mayor John Kelley, Councilwoman Christine Schmidt, Pompton Lakes Mayor Michael Serra, family members and friends to the opening.

Nicole explained that after moving to Verona last year and commuting to her New York City owned salon, the Laser Loft, she wanted to move her new business close to her home in New Jersey.

As he welcomed Nicole to Caldwell and wished her the best, Kelley said that The Lash Lady is going to be able to tap into a significant market in Caldwell, especially with Caldwell University right around the corner.

"All our businesses are a great contribution to our community, and we want to welcome The Lash Lady to Caldwell," said Schmidt. 

Nicole said she is excited to welcome new clients to The Lash Lady as well as the many existing clients from her New York City salon who have followed her to her new location.
