The highly trained stylists at Barnette’s Salon are accustomed to hearing compliments from satisfied clients, but in the past few years they've also had to get used to reading praise in print. Along with being named a "Top 100 Salon 2011" by Elle Magazine and "Reader's Choice for Best Salon 2012" by Mississippi Magazine, the salon––which boasts three locations––has also earned the title of "Best Beauty Shop of Jackson 2012" from the Jackson Free Press](http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2012/jan/25/best-of-jackson-2012-urban-living/), who proclaimed, "the staff is not only friendly and professional, but also immensely talented, consisting of some of the top stylists in town." Those top stylists owe much of their success to the salon's training program, which divvies the staff into five levels, according to experience, and inducts new stylists only after they have endured at least one year of extensive training and learned to identify each hair color by its smell. Specialists if precision cuts and custom color, the team reaches for products from Aveda, Bumble and Bumble, MoroccanOil, and CareTrico, and add instant length and volume using 100% human hair extensions by Great Lengths. For tresses in need of a new texture, they can also calm unruly curls with Keratin smoothing treatments or set strands with permanent waves to help cut down on time spent dealing with hot curling irons or hot rollers.

Designed by celebrated architect Frank Gehry, the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art exalts the work of George E. Ohr, a ceramic artist and moustache enthusiast known as the "Mad Potter of Biloxi." After it was destroyed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina, the campus reopened in 2010 amidst a grove of ancient live-oak trees, featuring a series of six aesthetically impressive pavilions that include a welcome center, a gallery of African-American art, and an interpretive center inside a reconstruction of the house of emancipated craftsman Pleasant Reed. Current exhibitions include collections from some of the art world's biggest names, including Andy Warhol and ceramic sculptor Jun Kaneko, as well as selections from Ohr's Gulf Coast collection, which inspired the American Modernist movement and several MLB baseball teams to wear ceramic pots instead of baseball hats.
