    The 25-year-old Magnolia resident lost more than 100 pounds after deciding to change his lifestyle after receiving a cancer diagnosis four years ago.

  •  Hazel Denham has learned in her 70 years of hairdressing experience that customers tend to love the styles they wore when they were young.

    She is no exception with her careful posture, crossed legs and simple but neat blouse and dress pants. Her favorite hairstyle is from the 1930s – a smooth permanent press associated with early-20th century glamour.

    The 91-year-old Hodgenville resident has seen the death and resurgence of many looks, including the French twist and the page boy, since she saved for her first permanent wave machine in the 1930s.

  •  When Hazel Denham walked into a beauty salon in Glasgow for her first-ever permanent as a sophomore at Temple Hill High School, she knew then and there what she wanted as a career.

    “There was just something about the friendliness in the shop, the interesting way the operator fixed not only mine but others' hair, I just felt I had a knack for it, and from that day I decided to be a beautician.”

    Her career prediction proved to be accurate as she has styled hair at Hodgenville's Powder Puff for 61 years and has owned it for over 55 years.
