Beauty store robbed of $500 in hair by 2 women

Two women stole more than $500 worth of hair Thursday evening from a beauty store near the Chicago-Evanston border, according to police.

Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said the women took four bundles of hair and ran out of the front door of Howard Beauty Supply, 1123 W. Howard St., shortly before 7:30 p.m. They had been shopping with another woman and two men.

Three of the bundles are valued at about $140 each and one at about $120, Parrott said.

Police described the women as black, 17 to 18 years old, between 5 foot 5 inches and 5 foot 6 inches tall and having slim builds. One woman wore a pink North Face coat with blue jeans, and the other wore a purple jacket.

Police are reviewing surveillance footage of the store, Parrott said.
