All the ladies who are anybody come to have their hair done at Truvy’s hair salon. Truvy is helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, who is not sure whether or not she is still married, and Truvy dispenses shampoos and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon Ouiser, (“I'm not crazy, I've just been in a bad mood for forty years.”); an eccentric millionaire Miss Clairee; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter Shelby is about to get married. Later Shelby, a diabetic, risks her health to have a baby. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which makes them a truly touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.
