Giorgina Nigro of European Hair Designs killed in apparent murder/suicide

Giorgina Nigro of South Plainfield’s European Hair Designs was killed in an alleged murder/suicide by her husband Vito Nigro on Wednesday morning in Colonia. Giorgina and her Vito operated European Hair Designs located in the Oak Park Commons Mall in South Plainfield. The two have been fixtures in South Plainfield’s hair salon network.

South Plainfield residents were stunned by the news of the popular hairdressers. “I cannot believe this,” said Amy Cardinal on TAP into South Plainfield’s Facebook Page . “I have known them for about 15 years. This is horrible and so tragic. I loved Giorgina and so did my kids. This is just beyond belief.”

“George was a fantastic woman with a heart of gold. She didn’t just cut your hair. She warmed your heart and quickly felt like someone you’d known forever while you sat in her chair,” stated a client of Giorgina who requested anonymity. “She was much more than someone who did our hair. She had a large clientele that loved her, just as much as my family does. She will never leave my heart.”
