Drive along Snowden Farm Parkway in Clarksburg and you can catch a glimpse of two completely different worlds. On one side, a landscape of narrow roads snaking their way around rolling hills, still snow-covered and dotted with farm equipment and red barns. But across the road, the bucolic scene gives way abruptly to rows of half-finished town homes and handsome brick-and-stone multistory houses, packed tightly together and abutting Little Bennett Elementary School. The scene hints at the explosive, sometimes painful, growth hitting this part of Montgomery County — officially the fastest-growing area in Maryland.

It's Saturday morning in any neighborhood hair salon. Dryers are whirring, curling irons steaming. Amid the machinery, women are gathered - talking, laughing, gossiping, and at times maybe even crying. There are rollers and bobby pins, yes, but more importantly, there's intimacy here. And comfort. The neighborhood beauty shop is a place where stories are told - which is what makes it a perfect setting for a movie. Over the years, many filmmakers have picked up on this notion and set their movies in or around the goings-on in beauty salons.

The name of the Towers Beauty Salon - the sign says Towers East, the answering machine says Towers West - matters little to the seniors who come in weekly to get their locks trimmed, curled and hair-sprayed into homespun perfection. Customers come in to share local gossip and consume free coffee and cookies while under giant domed hairdryers. They tell stories about being real beauties years ago, though many possess a beauty few can hope to have in their 80s. They also share photos with their stylist, who seems to know exactly what to do for each customer.
