This month, Girlie Night journeys to the best place on earth, home of big hair and even bigger gossip: Truvy's Beauty Salon.

In this charming little parlor, you don't just get your hair and nails did-- you get life lessons from some of the best and sassiest actresses to ever grace the screen. Without STEEL MAGNOLIAS, how would you know that there are so many different shades of pink (including Blush and Bashful), or that all gay men have track lighting? Without Ouiser Boudreaux (Shirley MacLaine, in all of her cantankerously awesome glory), how would you discover that it's possible to be in a bad mood for 40 years? And without Clairee Belcher (Olympia Dukakis), how would you learn that the only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize? Don't even get me started on Truvy Jones (Dolly Parton), whose folksy wisdom and bedazzled ensembles basically make life worth living.

These ladies are guaranteed to inspire you just as sure as they'll make you bawl your eyes out and then crack you up. Because we all know laughter through tears is the best emotion. So tease up your hair, grab your bestie and join us for a cinematic celebration of friendship, perms and Southern living. It'll be even better than a slice of armadillo cake. (Sarah Pitre)
