This much beloved story about the bonds and strength through good times and not so good, is set in Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, LA where all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire, Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby, is about to marry a “good ole boy”. As the story proceeds through comedy and tragedy we learn how these women have been each other’s strength through friendship and love.
