Beauty Parlor is an uncompromising look at the lives of two beauticians, Sally and Joan as they struggle to survive in the big city. Unable to make rent with their meager salaries, both girls fall into becoming escorts for rich older men. A life of ill repute quickly leads to Joan taking the fall in an extortion scam. Sally is forced to marry one of her repulsive clients so she can bail out her friend, but selling her soul may be too steep a price to pay.
