Arlene's Salon on the far South Side unexpectedly became a drive-thru Thursday morning.

Just after 5 a.m., a white Lexus SUV hit a pole and then plowed into the beauty salon near South Cottage Grove Ave and East 103rd Street, a witness told police.

Now that's a bad hair day.

Fortunately, no one was inside the one-story brick building, reports WBBM NewsRadio, so no one was hurt.

Well, no one except the driver of the SUV.

The driver limped out of the stolen vehicle and hopped into another car, where a female driver waited for him. The two sped away, a witness told police.

Police are investigating local hospitals.
