The heartfelt and hilariously true-to-life narrative of Steel Magnolias captured hearts worldwide and inspired the smash-hit 80’s film of the same name, which starred the likes of Julia Roberts and Dolly Parton.

The story of Steel Magnolias 

Take a trip to small-town Louisiana, where Truvvy runs the best beauty parlour around - you better believe that all of the ladies have a standing appointment! When six women come together at the parlour, a powerful connection is formed, a bond stronger than nail glue, and more beautiful than any hair style. Soon, they discover that they can conquer anything.

The women show their resilience in the face of love, loss and life, as they balance children, marriage, work and tragedies. There is refuge in their solace, joy in their gossip and a safe-haven in the walls of the salon. This heart-warming comedy proves that one trip to the beauty salon may just change your life.
