.Gossip and Curling Irons in Steel Magnolias

Stronger than any gel or acrylic manicure is the bond between a salon owner and her clientele—especially in a small town. In the beloved story Steel Magnolias, Truvy’s Beauty Salon has the hottest curling irons and gossip in all of Chinquapin, Louisiana, and Truvy is just as fast dishing it out as she is styling an updo for prom. Based on the experience of the death of author Robert Harling’s sister, the comedy-drama beautifully illustrates how humor and lighthearted conversations can help one cope with the seriousness of many of life’s difficult situations.
