Whether it’s for a super special occasion or just a date night out, a professional makeup application is an easy way to look amazing. When it comes to professional makeup, there are many choices out there, but only one you need to know about: airbrush makeup.
Generally speaking, airbrushing uses compressed air, which mists your foundation lightly across your skin, using unique foundation cartridges and a pen-like applicator that sprays the makeup. If you’ve ever watched an awards show, you’ve probably seen makeup artists applying airbrush makeup on celebrities as they walk down the red carpet. With that said, airbrush makeup isn’t just for the rich and famous; it’s for you, too!
This revolutionary technique creates a flawless finish and a natural look for your skin. We can brush off skin imperfections using high-def makeup products, leaving you ready for your close up on any special occasion. With airbrush makeup at Chroma Hair Studio & Spa, you can wear your makeup all day and never have to powder your nose. This unique makeup foundation is even smudge-proof and waterproof, meaning you can perspire and even touch your face without worry.
A few benefits of airbrush makeup include:
If you’re looking for a cost-conscious way to stand out from the crowd, we recommend stopping by hair salon in Johns Island, SC. Our team will speak with you about your event, talk to you about your makeup preferences, and will work hard to give you the look that you’ve been craving.

Today, our bodies are constantly bombarded – by pollution, stress, and a host of other irritants. These problems often manifest on our faces, which can quickly become riddled with oil and other substances that leave you looking worn-out and tired. One of the most popular ways to refresh, rejuvenate, and reverse the signs of stress and pollutants is with a professional facial from Chroma Hair Studio & Spa.
There’s no facial more personalized to your needs than our custom blend facials. Each step is a fusion of science, aromatherapy oils, natural botanicals, and luxurious techniques combined with clinical-strength ingredients designed specifically to deliver results. The first step begins with a SkinReading® which we use to determine your concerns and goals. We follow that up with an invigorating cleansing, deep exfoliation, and relaxing skin sedation.
If you're looking to switch up your hair color but can’t decide between Balayage or Ombre because, well, you don't know the difference – don’t worry. You’re not alone!
Balayage is a French technique for highlighting the hair in which the dye is painted to create a natural-looking effect. The goal is to create soft, subtle highlights that make your hair look like it’s been kissed by the sun.
While Balayage is the technique of painting the hair, Ombre focuses on the style of the hair. It is the transition of a lighter shade to a darker shade. Typically, Ombres work best for brunettes, but the style can is suitable for blondes too. To achieve the effect of an Ombre, it is crucial to have a smooth transition between colors. While the Ombre is a beautiful look, you’ll need to work with a professional to get the best results.
Luckily, we offer both Ombre and Balayage hair coloring at Chroma Hair Studio. Short on time? Busy schedule? Only available on weekends? Chroma Hair Studio offers flexible appointment scheduling to accommodate even the busiest clients. You deserve a fresh new style, and we’re here to help when the time is right for you.

JAMES ISLAND (WCSC) – The Town of James Island will be requesting millions of dollars in state and federal grants to fund a project designed to make a local creek safer to swim.
Dave Schaeffer, the James Island Public Service District’s district manager, discussed the grants, which would allow over 200 properties near the creek to switch from septic tanks to water and sewer lines, during a meeting of the James Island Creek Task Force, Thursday afternoon.
“Right now, as what we’re seeking, there would not be out of pocket tap fees and connection fees, impact fees to the residents,” Schaeffer said.
The town said they will be requesting $6.4 million in federal and state funding to help make the project happen. In addition to the requested money, Schaeffer said the town will commit $1.8 million from American Rescue Plan funds that the town had received.
The James Island Creek Task Force consists of members from the City of Charleston, James Island and Charleston County.
Charleston Waterkeeper Executive Director Andrew Wunderley, who is part of the task force, said the group was formed in 2020 to find ways to clean up the creek and make it safe for swimming.
“Right now, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to get this right with the American Rescue Act funding that’s coming to the state of South Carolina and is specifically earmarked for projects like this that are tied to public health and are tied to water and sewer upgrades,” Wunderley said.
Fred Schuh has lived alongside the James Island Creek for 20 years. He said he uses the creek regularly with his grandchildren and wants the septic tanks in the area removed to better the community’s health.
“It is concerning,” Schuh said. “Except for people who take an interest in testing it, we would not know there’s anything changed about it, but when there’s scientific studies done to show that there’s a problem, we need to pay attention to it.”
As a possible solution, Schuh also suggested that septic tanks should be inspected more frequently, so property owners could know when to repair their tanks.
However, for now, he said he supports the town requesting the funds to help solve the problem.
“If we could make the public aware of this and ask whatever funds possible be diverted to this extremely useful endeavor, I say I’m all for it,” Schuh said.
Schaeffer said during the meeting that he hopes the project gets funded when the money from the federal government begins being distributed in January or February.

Charleston isn’t the first place people think of as a winter getaway, but it can be a perfect destination for those seeking to escape the big chill of the Northeast or Midwest.
Compared to more popular warm-weather favorites—like Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, or Scottsdale—hotel accommodations and restaurant reservations are easier to come by in Charleston, and short-term winter rentals are plentiful at more favorable rates.
Admittedly, you aren’t likely to find beach weather in Charleston during January, February, and March. Still, temperatures hovering around 50-60℉ make it comfortable enough to spend time outdoors without bundling up in warm winter jackets and gloves. In late December or early January, the slight chance of passing snow flurries might even add a bit of pixie dust to the beauty of the city.
Most attractions and historic sites are open year-round, complemented by unique seasonal festivals and events that woo winter tourists.
The city offers a range of accommodations from classic to contemporary at various price points. Many are described on the Explore Charleston website, but here are a few worth checking out:
Emeline, located in Charleston’s historic district, is a captivating perch from which to explore the Holy City. The boutique hotel has 212 all-king bed guest rooms, including 128 luxury suites. In addition, the hotel is home to Frannie & The Fox (a wood-fired eatery with Italian sensibilities), Clerks Coffee Company (a more informal cafe and eatery with a hint of nostalgia), and Keep Shop (an exceptionally well-curated gift shop).
Charleston Place, A Belmond Hotel is another luxury hotel located in the heart of downtown Charleston. The Club Level accommodations, a two-floor collection of renovated rooms and suites, offer private elevator access and check-in. Custom wallpaper in the elevator lobby depicts a circa-1820s map of Charleston, an homage to the city’s history. A concierge can help guests coordinate private tours of nearby plantations and gardens.
The Spectator Hotel on State Street offers an Art Deco-inspired interior reminiscent of the glamor of the 1920s. The boutique hotel is the only one in Charleston with personal butler service, available 24/7, who can coordinate anything from delivering freshly baked gingerbread cookies to setting up in-room eggnogs. Be sure to stop at the Prohibition-era-themed cocktail lounge, The Bar.
Sweetgrass Inn at Wild Dunes Resort is the property’s new 153-room hotel. Award-winning amenities available at the resort year-round include championship golf, nationally ranked tennis, an expansive private beach, a 10,000 square-foot luxury spa, and a 2,750 square foot fitness center.
The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers 255 guest rooms, many with magnificent ocean views. Especially appreciated by golf lovers, the resort is located on a barrier island about twenty miles from downtown. The gracious 255-room hotel is South Carolina’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five Star hotel.
Sweetgrass Properties is a boutique vacation rental company on Kiawah Island offering a searchable database of luxury rental properties on Seabrook Island, Wild Dunes, and Isle of Palms.
Explore Charleston, the convention and visitors bureau website, is an excellent resource for visitors.
The Charleston Heritage Foundation’s Essential Charleston Passport is available for purchase online. It offers guests a digital ticket that includes admission to five remarkable historic houses, the Charleston Museum and the Gibbes Museum of Art.
Direct flights to Charleston are available from Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New Orleans, Boston, New York City, Denver, and several other major cities.

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Johns Island residents have concerns about a proposed Medical Village on Betsy Kerrison Parkway.
Plans were presented at a Charleston County workshop last week, but no formal plans have been submitted to planning yet.
The conceptual planned Island Park Place Medical Health and Wellness Village is proposed to be built along Betsy Kerrison Parkway, right across from Rosebank Farms.
Plan from DesignWorks show it intends to offer a village-like setting with healthcare and wellness services.
The conceptual plans for the Island Park Place show a 40,000-square-foot Main Medical Facility along with other practices throughout the village like physical therapy, pain management, women’s wellness, chiropractic’s, orthopedics, dentistry, family medicine, cardiology, nutrition, life fitness, pharmacy, health grocery and eateries.
James Stanton lives a few miles from the proposed location. He says he’s in favor of having more medical facilities in this area of Johns Island, but has concerns about the exact site.
“Myself, many of our neighbors, we’re very pro-development and understand where the infrastructure needs to be improved,” Stanton said. “We just want it to be done in a smart way.”
Other people like Rich Thomas, who lives right across from the potential medical village, are worried the medical village would change the character of Betsy Kerrison Parkway.
He feels areas like Freshfield Village or Maybank Highway would be better suited for this type of development.
“Part of the road, about half of it, directly across the road from here is swampy, wetlands,” Thomas said. “So that land would have to be filled in to build a proposed development. Doing that would cause the run-off to go around and back across my property actually if you look at the flow path.”
The workshop meeting last week was the first step for the developer to introduce the planned development.
However, in order for it to ever come, the site would first need to be rezoned to a planned development (PD) through Charleston County Zoning and Planning. The current zoning of the property does not allow the proposed use.
As of now, Charleston County Zoning and Planning Department says they do not have a formal application. Therefore, it is not currently scheduled for any upcoming Planning Commission meetings.
“There’s a feeling around here at times that things just get done in the dead of night,” Thomas said.
He says he hopes there’s a strong public/private conversation if this medical village moves forward in the future.

The S.C. Department of Transportation has released detailed information about the planned Interstate 526 extension, and everybody who wants to be in the discussion should first study it. When I learned that Johns Island is expected to triple its population between 2015 and 2050, my initially favorable view of this project changed.
The highway extension by itself is only a partial solution. Once built, it would trigger the widening of roads all over the area. The monetary and environmental costs of those roads appear nowhere in the otherwise diligent impact study. We have arrived at a waypoint where we must question uncontrolled growth based on car traffic and become serious about public transportation.
The region has made a promising start with the Lowcountry Rapid Transit project. However, the low densities on James and Johns islands call for a different concept: multiple lines of smaller buses branching out into these islands. But how can these buses get there without being stuck in car traffic? The I-526 extension presents a one-time chance to achieve this through these steps:
• Build the I-526 extension as proposed in Alternative G with four lanes between West Ashley and Johns Island. This section of the highway is badly needed to connect Johns Island with destinations north and would reduce congestion on Main Road and Maybank Highway on James Island.
• Continue the extension to James Island and S.C. 30 as a two-lane bus road, accompanied by a bike and pedestrian path. If this section is built for car traffic, it will have a disproportionate impact on neighborhoods and the James Island County Park while bringing ever more cars into the city where parking is already scarce. As a green corridor, serving electric buses and bikers, it would be quiet and improve access to the park.
• Make future development on the islands conditional on improving bus service. Establish small park-and-ride lots where the bus lines connect to developments. As bus traffic increases, reserve two lanes on I-526 and S.C. 30 for “green” traffic.
In its study for the I-526 extension, the Department of Transportation does not mention buses or public transportation. This is the mindset of the 1970s, when road planning destroyed the urban fabric of cities and made them dependent on individual car traffic.
Perpetuated today, it is an astonishing denial of the challenges that are posed by climate change. It also constitutes social injustice toward residents on the islands who cannot drive cars because of their age or lack of monetary means.
Electric cars will not reduce congestion. Autonomous cars will increase demand and make it much worse. Future development on the islands is acceptable only if a significant amount of commuting can be served by public transportation. The I-526 extension offers a unique chance to do so.
