Beauty shop bandits steal $90K in human hair.

Chicago police are investigating a hairy heist.

Nearly $90,000 worth of "top of the line" human hair was stolen from a beauty supply store Sunday morning.

Thieves apparently knew what they're were targeting and made off with the hair from Beauty One.

"A huge steel door had been pried open, with two deadbolt locks on it," one police sergeant said.

Whoever broke in also damaged the door's frame and bricks on the building around the rear door.

Beauty One owner Jay Han's security cameras caught the men in the act, prying open the door and dragging out the merchandise.

Han blames the economy for the theft and thinks the thieves will sell the goods on the street or even at the market.
