Beauty parlors provide endless opportunity for creativity. Smitty's, on Clark near Bryn Mawr, has relocated. The nicely structured art for A Step Above is on Howard at Ridge.

Salonique, on Touhy at Ridge, has changed names and signs. The delicate Nail World hands are on Montrose near California.

My Hoa and Tank Noodles are on Argyle near Broadway. The Tank Noodles theme speaks for itself.
