If you have a passion, stay with it. That's what Callie Terrell has done. The beautician from Memphis, Tennessee, earned her cosmetology license in 1945 and has been doing hair for 73 years. She is the oldest licensed cosmetologist in Tennessee.
She once had her own thriving beauty shop, but now rents space in another, and has decided when to retire. Her last day will be on her birthday this November, when she turns 100. The customer she's had longest is her daughter Inez, who is too old to drive. Terrell picks her daughter up and brings her to the shop for haircuts, since the 100-year-old still drives. Even after retirement, she'll still be buzzing around town, keeping busy.
