Racquel Cabrera sits alone waiting for a customer in the Icon Hair Studio in Bound Brook, where she works part-time. You stroll past them in the grocery store, sit behind them at the gas station, stand next to them at your kid's soccer game.

After reading the article about that poor hairstylist in Bound Brook, I don't feel sorry for her at all. Being in the industry myself, I know summer is the worst time to keep a full appointment book going. 6 clients on a summer saturday ain't all that bad. I think she is very clever in tricking people to fill her book.
Three things I would like to say...
1- she has money for cigarettes.
2- she must take a lot of food from the food bank.
3- how can I get an article done about me so that people can help me too?
