Peacock Beauty Salonof
Thelma Collins, Artistic
The whitewaslier and kalsomin
er have long since been replaced
by the painter and decorator—the
old barber and barber shop are
fast becoming obsolete, in their
stead we have the “tonsorial artist”
and “tonsorial parlor,” the “beauty
shoppes” with their hair-dressers
and beauticians are rapidly being
superseded by “beauty salons”
where “beauty culturists” and cos
meticians” hold sway.
The finest example, on the South
Side of this fast growing tendency
is the ultra modern Peacock
Beauty Salon (see ad—page 11).
The “Salon” proper is a thing
of artistic beauty and exquiiste
taste, but one must visit the ‘‘Sil
houette Shop’’ downstairs to behold
how completely its genial manager,
Miss Thelma Collins, has equipped
it, to perform her alchemy of beauty
magic, for matrons and maidens of
this district.
