... I now live in Louisville with my husband. We are going to be moving to Pittsburgh with his job fairly soon. We drove in this past weekend and we are trying to gather as much information as possible to start our new adventure!
I am a hairstylist and a client of mine lived in Pittsburgh. I explained that a was looking to live in a scenic,friendly,artsy,vibrant community. Ideally, some where with coffee shops, bookstores, yoga, shops, and last but not least great salons...... all in walking distance from my home. The areas she suggested were SHADYSIDE, SQUIREL HILL and MT. WASHINGTON.
If anyone can share some insight on any of these areas I would be soooo grateful. Here is another question. What are the top five salons in the area?
Are any of them near these three locations? Thank You neighbor.
sincerely, sarah

You're on the Philly thread. You need to post this on the Pittsburgh one.

Where do you live now in Louisville? If you're looking for a 'highlands' type atmosphere then Squirrel Hill is quite similar. It's got the park (Schenley Park), main street (though Murray Ave is probably a bit less kooky than Bardstown) and the wonderful homes and architecture.

Squirrel Hill is a traditionally Jewish neighborhood and many students from the local universities rent apartments there as well.

What this guy said
about Louisville applies to Pittsburgh as well, in most cases.

Mt. Washington is scenic, but lacking in the rest of your criteria. I'd stick to Shadyside and Squirrel Hill, and maybe throw in Regent Square, Bloomfield, and the South Side as well.
