Let’s be honest: DIY hair kits can be tricky to get right. They can be complicated to apply and usually have hard-to-understand instructions.

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 Walterboro, 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.
Picking the perfect wedding dress is tough, but choosing your hairstyle can be even more difficult. On your wedding day, you want to be sure that your appearance is stunning and flawless.

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.

New language changes to an existing Colleton County ordinance could mean that hunting dogs could be considered running at large even during an active dog hunt.
Colleton County already has an animal ordinance in place. This existing ordinance says that animals are deemed to be “running at large” if the animal is off of its owners’ property and is not under immediate and direct supervision of the owner, including a restraining device. Traditionally in Colleton County, however, hunting dogs have been exempted from this ordinance, as long as the dog owner was actively looking for the animal.
If the new changes are approved by county council, hunting dogs in an active hunt would no longer be exempt and that hunting dog would be considered an animal that is running at large.
Colleton County Council gave first reading to the proposed new changes on Dec. 7th, 2021.
A second reading was scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 4th. Then, a public hearing and subsequent third and final reading was scheduled for this topic on Feb. 1st. However, on Monday, Colleton County Council At-Large Member Gene Whetsell said he was going to ask that the issue be tabled until council got more information on the pending changes. As an at-large representative on Colleton County Council, Whetsell represents all Colleton residents, no matter the district lines.
According to Whetsell, he had received “multiple calls” over the New Year’s Eve holiday from upset and concerned hunters, saying their dogs don’t know how to read property lines.
Whetsell also said these dog owners told him they want to be able to continue to search for their hunting dogs. “I need more information on this,” Whetsell said, on Monday. “I know this ordinance wasn’t sponsored by me.”
The scheduled Jan. 4th Colleton County Council meeting came after this newspaper’s print deadline. However, more information on this topic will be available on our social media sites and in future print issues of this newspaper.
Meanwhile, on social media, dog hunters have taken a very loud stance against any changes being made to the existing ordinance. Comments include hunters asking for an in-person public hearing on the issue, and not a virtual one; asking for dog hunters to contact their councilmen on the issue; and discussion on how GPS isn’t always the best means to track and recoup a roaming hunting dog.

Civil Air Patrol members in 52 wings and in overseas squadrons are celebrating CAP’s commitment to serving America's communities, saving lives, and shaping futures. The South Carolina Wing of Civil Air Patrol is also marking this birthday with virtual birthday celebrations, outreach opportunities throughout 2022, and with a proclamation from Gov. Henry McMaster declaring 1 December 2021 “Civil Air Patrol Day in South Carolina.
Dec. 1 marks the 80th anniversary of the founding of the organization, which became part of the U.S. Air Force “Total Force” in 2015. Over 56,000 members embody the organization’s core values of integrity, volunteer service, excellence, and respect as they serve—strengthening their communities and the nation with over $280 million worth of volunteer hours in fiscal year 2020 alone.
In South Carolina, sixteen squadrons with around 850 members serve local communities in three groups—the Upstate, the Midlands, and the Lowcountry. Community-based squadrons like Charleston, Aiken, Greenwood, Greenville, Sumter, Marion, Myrtle Beach, Cottageville, Beaufort, Lexington, Rock Hill, Spartanburg and Columbia are all part of the Civil Air Patrol organization. Civil Air Patrol members serve their communities in disaster relief—responding locally after Tropical Storm Joaquin (2015), Hurricane Matthew (2016), Hurricane Irma (2017), Hurricane Florence (2018), Hurricane Dorian (2019), and Hurricane Isaias (2020). Additionally, members respond to this emergency services mission after floods (Joaquin) and tornadoes (April 2020, Walterboro), as well as aviation disasters (recently, Colleton County plane crash).
Civil Air Patrol members, especially those who learn leadership through the Cadet Program, go on to serve their communities. Former South Carolina Wing cadets now serve their communities through their local school systems (Col. Jay Lindler), through the United States Air Force (1st Lt Josh Fugle), and as the current Regimental Commander of the Corps of Cadets at The Citadel (Cadet Col. Kathryn Christmas, former Cadet 1st Lt. in Civil Air Patrol).
The origins of Civil Air Patrol’s story began in 1936, when Gill Robb Wilson, World War I aviator and New Jersey director of aeronautics, returned from Germany convinced of impending war. Wilson envisioned mobilizing America’s civilian aviators for national defense. The proposal for a Civil Air Patrol was approved by the Commerce, Navy and War departments, and CAP was founded Dec. 1.
In January 1942, Germany U-boats started attacking U.S. shipping lanes along the East Coast. By June, enemy attacks had destroyed nearly 400 merchant vessels and oil tankers off the Atlantic coastline, often within sight of its shores. Civil Air Patrol was called into action by a short-handed military.
Using privately owned airplanes armed with light bombs, civilian volunteers became the eyes of the home skies, flying a total of 244,600 hours patrolling and safeguarding the Atlantic and Gulf coastlines and aiding the safe movement of war materiel to the battlefields of Europe and the Pacific.
Since World War II, Civil Air Patrol has continued making a difference in communities by training civilians to serve in three primary mission areas—aerospace education, emergency services and cadet programs.
CAP’s aerospace education mission has helped inspire youth and adult members alike to reach for new heights. Some notable members include Lt. Col. Nicole Malachowski, the first female Air Force Thunderbird pilot; Space shuttle pilot Col. Eric Boe; and SpaceX Crew Dragon pilot Dr. Sian Proctor.
The Emergency Services mission has given members of all ages the opportunity to respond after tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters. Additionally, CAP members actively supported the responses to the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Finally, Civil Air Patrol is training cadets to be leaders in many professional arenas through its aviation opportunities, cyber defense training and character development training.
Today’s Civil Air Patrol may look different than it did 80 years ago, but at its core the organization remains the same. It continues to support America’s communities with emergency response, diverse aviation and ground services, youth development and promotion of air, space and cyber power.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — It’s been five years since Kamiyah Mobley was reunited with her parents.
Kamiyah was found safe in South Carolina in early 2017 when she was 18 years old, after being kidnapped from a Jacksonville hospital as a newborn in 1998.
More than 2,500 tips were given to officials that led to the arrest of then-51-year-old Gloria Williams.
Pretending to be a nurse, Williams kidnapped Kamiyah just hours after the little girl’s birth at University Hospital, which is now known as UF Health Jacksonville.
The only picture of Kamiyah was a composite because she was abducted just hours after being born. Police were able to compile a few sketches of Williams.
On Jan. 13, 2017, police tracked down Kamiyah, who was going under the name Alexis Manigo, in Walterboro, South Carolina.
Police in Walterboro matched up the birthday of the missing girl with a different name and fraudulent documents. DNA tests confirmed that the girl was the missing newborn.
The fake birth certificate listed that Kamiyah was born at Trident Medical Center in Charleston.
Kamiyah was reunited with her mother and father, Shanara Mobley and Craig Aiken, just a day after being found.
Williams was sentenced to 18 years in prison for the first charge of kidnapping and five years for the second charge of interfering with custody. The sentences run concurrently and Williams received credit for 511 days of time served.
In 2019, Kamiyah’s father Craig Aiken said that Kamiyah was moving with him in Jacksonville.
The story got national coverage and was made into a Lifetime movie, “Stolen by My Mother: The Kamiyah Mobley Story.” The family told Action News Jax that they did not have a big part in helping with the film. The movie premiered in January 2020.
