Jefferson Beauty Parlor (Location Key)


Jefferson's barbershop figures in 11 different texts, but there is no mention of where the town's women get their hair done until the last two volumes of the Snopes trilogy, and Eula Snopes is the only character in the fictions who is associated with a "beauty parlor." That is what Charles Mallison calls it when he sees Eula's hair on the last day of her life in The Town and says "as soon as you looked at her you could tell that's where she had been" (324). Eula's visit to the "beauty parlor" is mentioned again in The Mansion by V.K. Ratliff, who says that this is the only time she ever went there (162).
