Rufus Ward: Annus mirabilis 1811

Posted 11/26/2011 in Columns

Annus mirabilis is Latin for "year of wonders." It is most recognized as the title of a poem by John Dryden about the miraculous year of 1666. However, there was also such a memorable year in the history of Mississippi. It was the year 1811.

 

David Creel: From stocking stuffers to divinity candy

Posted 11/26/2011 in Columns

The mantles in my home are already adorned with holiday garlands, festive ribbons spilling from underneath branches of twinkling little lights and the Christmas trees dressing up most rooms with fa-la-la. I love the holidays for many reasons, but mostly for the gifts both large and small that I can give to those I adore. Since I trust you can all keep a secret, I will share some splendid things on my shopping list this season.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: You da man

Posted 11/25/2011 in Columns

There is a man, who moves fast, but talks slow; who gives much but takes little, a man whose dreams are so small that to most people, they are huge. The man meets a woman alone and afraid.

 

 

David Creel: Beautiful class is in session

Posted 11/19/2011 in Columns

Recently I held a workshop at my salon for two days, kicking off the holiday season, and I learned a few things in the process. Now, I'm no stranger to teaching small audiences everything I know, from lipsticks to lightening hair. The salon was adorned with all the glittery things you would expect, from twinkling white trees to snow globes, as the holidays were our theme for a sparkling weekend of fun.

 

 

David Creel: Thanksgiving, of memories and makeovers

Posted 11/13/2011 in Columns

One of my best memories is quite a simple one. The night before Thanksgiving, falling asleep with the sounds of Mama clinking pots around in the kitchen, the smell, how heavenly, of turkey baking slowly in the oven put me right off to dreamland many nights.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Cha-cha-changes

Posted 11/13/2011 in Columns

I was fascinated by the news this week about the former British rugby player who claims a stroke turned him gay overnight (The Daily Mail).

David Creel: Does changing seasons mean changing your hair?

Posted 11/11/2011 in Columns

"There is a season, turn, turn, turn ..." It was said first in Ecclesiastes, at least as far as I know, and then it was sung by the Byrds. Since then, it has been applied to matters of life and death, the rise and fall of empires, the success and failure of relationships, even a person's changing interests as he or she matures.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Cha-cha-changes

Posted 11/11/2011 in Columns

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another."  Anatole France

 

 

Adele Elliott: While I slept

Posted 11/11/2011 in Columns

It's been a pretty tough week at the Elliott-Hannon household. We worked really hard creating a pre-Halloween event. Maybe it was just too hard for me, because, although our tour was a huge success, I spent the rest of the week in bed with all sorts of ailments.

 

 

David Creel: Forty years of lessons learned

Posted 10/30/2011 in Columns

It's been a long time coming -- 40 years to be exact -- but my birthday is next week. And, yes, it's the big one, so I thought I would take a few moments and share a few things I have learned along the way.

 

 

Adele Elliott: On the road

Posted 10/30/2011 in Columns

Chris and I took a little road trip last weekend, because I was hired to write a series of travel blogs for a neighboring state.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Advice cop

Posted 10/22/2011 in Columns

It is said that the difference between women's magazines and men's is that magazines aimed at women are all about self-improvement, and men's are about how great they are. I do most of my magazine reading in the checkout line at Kroger (aka K. Roger, thanks to Ms. Stone!). It appears that there is much truth to this.

 

 

David Creel: Behold: Younger eyes, younger you

Posted 10/22/2011 in Columns

I have been in the business of beauty for 20 years, whether in the hustle and bustle of one of my salons or armed with an arsenal of brushes at the makeup counters, so this fellow knows some tricks you are sure to find a treat this fall.

 

Rufus Ward: Gen. Grant's Columbus ploy

Posted 10/22/2011 in Columns

History is like a big puzzle. There are scattered pieces tucked away in different collections, archives and books just waiting to be assembled. Sometimes these scattered pieces come together and what had been unassociated events help to form a complete story.

 

David Creel: Different styles for different faces

Posted 10/15/2011 in Columns

It's time to put your best face forward. Facial shapes come in a variety of different forms: round, oblong, oval, square, triangular, diamond and heart-shaped. You don't need a how-to book or even a stylist to help; simply face the mirror and trace the outline of your face with an eyeliner pencil. Stand back and marvel.

 

 

Betty Stone: The funnies

Posted 10/15/2011 in Columns

Lately, because of my growing addiction to newspaper puzzles, I have taken to reading the funnies again. Some of them are frankly political, even though they are usually the ones that can make me laugh out loud.

 

 

Adele Elliott: October

Posted 10/15/2011 in Columns

October is my favorite month. It is in this month that Southerners expect to feel a coolness in the air, finally. It is the time when leaves turn to flames and jewels. It is the month of Halloween.

 

 

Adele Elliott: The care and feeding of fear

Posted 10/8/2011 in Columns

These days everything we buy comes with instructions and detailed warnings. Aerosol cans have labels that warn us to keep them away from open flames. Shampoos clearly state that the contents are for external use only.

 

 

David Creel: 'Ombre' lets your hair light up the season

Posted 10/8/2011 in Columns

The holidays are almost upon us, and I can't think of a more appropriate time to turn up the volume on your hair color by switching gears with one of the newest buzz-worthy trends of the year -- ombre.
