Every Southern woman knows there are few institutions on earth more important than the town beauty parlor. At Truvy Jones’ salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, neighborhood women gather to swap stories, share gossip, and of course, style their hair.

Steel Magnolias is a hilarious, heartwarming portrait of the strength and beauty of female friendship.
