Arthur Goldman, 73, of Germantown, owner of a hair salon there, died of pulmonary failure Tuesday at Roxborough Memorial Hospital. A 1954 graduate of Simon Gratz High School, Mr. Goldman took business administration classes at Temple University for a few years before leaving. In 1968, he opened his salon, King Arthur's Court, in the lobby of the Hathaway House, an apartment building on Chelten Avenue near Wissahickon Avenue. In the late 1970s, Mr. Goldman renamed it Arthur's Hair Designers, which by then had a racially integrated staff and clientele, said his son, Peter.

A makeover for most American women doesn't involve a stint on the reality show Extreme Makeover, for which contestants undergo fairy-tale metamorphoses valued at the price of an executive home. No, most of us don't spend megabucks on lid lifts, tummy tucks and dental work that render us perfect strangers to family and friends. However, we may easily spend $100 a month visiting our favorite hair salon for color, cuts and styling that transform our everyday hairdos into Vanity Fair coifs.

Phyllis and Victor Freeman want to spread the word of the Lord. Their hook is haircuts. The couple opened their newest venture - and christened it Divine Touch - six months ago. The rules are posted on the white walls of the salon: no cursing, and no smoking. On a glass table, a Bible is opened to Psalms. Booklets of verses are just a hand-grab away. Take 'em or leave 'em. The Freemans say they don't want to push religion. Divine Touch has struggled in a depressed neighborhood and unsteady business district of Paulsboro, one of Gloucester County's poorest municipalities.

Nothing like a coup to put life in perspective. "Politics is important," said Era Alevsky, 36, a manicurist from the Ukraine. "But you have to take care to be beautiful, too. " The talk these days is of glasnost and manicures at Shideh's, a nail and skin salon on 18th Street near Sansom. There, four Soviet emigres file, buff and polish nails while keeping a scorecard of who's who and what's what in the Kremlin. Much of the talk at lunchtime yesterday, before news of the coup's failure, was comparing the sudden and mysterious health problems of the self-proclaimed Soviet leaders.

A Philadelphia woman died at the hands of an unknown assailant Monday in the Bucks County nail shop that she owned, according to police. Annie Huynh, 30, was found dead after police went to the store, Kim's Nails, when employees arrived there about 9:20 a.m. and found the business still locked. Police would not say where Huynh's body was found in the store, which is in the Pike Plaza Shopping Center, on Second Street Pike in Upper Southampton Township. No obvious signs of trauma were visible on her body, and it was only after an autopsy was completed Monday night that Huynh's death was declared a homicide, said Upper Southampton Police Chief Ron MacPherson.

The Erotic Literary Salon pounds with words, those words, the ones not usually uttered in polite company - or in private without a blush. But few at the Bohemian Absinthe Lounge at Time, a restaurant-bar at 13th and Sansom Streets, look particularly shocked. Not Lou Ludovici, 70, of Fox Chase, a commercial radio engineer in the middle of a divorce. Nor Rachel Fogletto, 24, a social work student at the University of Pennsylvania who's interested in "anything on the taboo side.

LAST WEDNESDAY, Hien Bui was angry and tense. She was puzzled why the city and the Philadelphia Housing Authority would want to shut down the North Philadelphia nail salon her mother started nearly 23 years ago and put another business in its place. "I couldn't sleep last night," Bui said Thursday, the day after she got a letter from the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority telling her that PHA planned to seize her business under eminent domain. Bui said she's been running Ann's Nails, on Ridge Avenue near 23rd Street, for 18 years.

Carl Adams, 49, of Southwest Philadelphia, has been homeless for much of the past year, since he was released from prison. "When I got out, family and friends were gone," Adams said. Despite lacking a home and family, Adams got an important boost last week: a makeover from a traveling salon that provides free hair washes, cuts, color, and styling. In preparation for a meeting with a lawyer, Adams got a beard trim and a haircut in a blue-and-white trailer in the parking lot of the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, on 13th Street north of Vine Street.

More off-putting than dark roots, unkempt cuticles, and a face in need of a good peel was the condition of the Biaggio Salon & Spa in Marlton when it wound up in court-appointed receivership in 2007. Checks to employees and vendors were bouncing, the landlord had begun eviction proceedings, and the company owned by Thomas J. Fabiani and his son Thomas M. was $1 million in debt. "Biaggio had such a dark cloud over it," recalled Kim Carulillo, who at the time was working the salon's front desk after a 12-year career as a paralegal left her wanting a more people-oriented job. Eight years later, a makeover of enormous proportions has turned a high-glamour business on the brink of failure into what industry players say is one of South Jersey's busiest salons.

In the eight months since Pennsylvania's indoor tanning law took effect, the state health department has sent letters informing nearly 2,800 facilities that they must register, pay annual fees, and comply with new rules designed to protect consumers, especially teens. So far, only 133 facilities, less than 5 percent, have signed up. That may not be surprising, since the state won't start annual inspections and enforcement until next year. But two medical groups that lobbied for the law are calling attention to the apparent recalcitrance.

Rihanna. Kate Hudson. Michelle Obama. All of these women have had their hair styled at one of the three Paul Labrecque New York locations. But while names like these would bring an undisputed level of swank to any beauty establishment, they don't single-handedly keep the salons' keratin treatments straightening, balayage processes coloring, or scissors trimming. That's why a team at the three-month-old, $5 million Hair by Paul Labrecque salon in the newly renovated Rittenhouse hotel is focused on building a book of Philadelphia A-listers.

Nick Berardi's hair salon is seven blocks and a world away from the homeless shelter in a church basement on Broad Street, just a block north of City Hall. Every week, Berardi and his stylists handle more than 400 customers. Clients pay top dollar for cuts or color, with an average bill of $100. For Clarence Briscoe, 71, home is a cot at the Arch Street United Methodist Church. He'd still have an apartment in Northeast Philadelphia if he had not lost a $200-a-month rent subsidy.
