Go against the status quo and let your hair down this season. Pixie cuts and shags are all the rage, but rocking a Rapunzel-like haircut will set you apart from the crowd. If you're looking for a more natural, classic look, this could be your haircut.
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 from 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, there must be 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 in Moncks Corner, SC! Short on time? Busy schedule? Only available on weekends? Chroma Hair Studio & Spa 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.

Two local students who hadn’t set foot in a classroom in 49 and 24 years respectively have recently demonstrated that it’s never too late to chase your dreams, particularly as it pertains to securing your college degree and/or high school diploma.
Delores Thompson Davis Whack — a grandmother who is well into her sixties — donned her cap and gown on Dec. 12 to officially receive her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of South Carolina. The 1973 Macedonia High School graduate, moreover, earned her credentials by scoring a 3.5 GPA.
The seasoned scholar’s motivating force was to “show her grands [and] also all young people the importance of education.” And she did so after a successful career at The First National Bank of Boston after migrating to the Northeast in her youth. She later relocated back to South Carolina, where she served as an employee of the South Carolina Department of Transportation before retiring.
Throughout her travels from Moncks Corner to Massachusetts and back to the Palmetto State, Whack never allowed naysayers, claiming she was “too old” to resume her education, to deter her from completing one last sprint to the finish line.
Following her achievement, Whack advised: “Don’t let what people say to you or about you modify your goals. Also, set goals and try your very best to achieve them.”
Similarly, adult education graduate Tina Driggers, 44, celebrated her decision to go back to school in June, when she finally took her triumphant walk to the stage at the Cane Bay auditorium to receive her graduate diploma from Heather Taylor, Berkeley County School District’s Chief Administration Officer for Secondary Schools.
The Summerville resident embarked on the road less traveled before attaining her latest educational feat in that the one-time Stratford High School student ceased attending school as a senior, shortly following her father’s death.
The then-teenager lost a lot of friends and “went down a bad road,” before becoming a mom in her twenties.
After years of working as a Bingo attendant and then for a local Dollar Tree, Driggers took the leap to become an adult education student and went on to pass her math and English courses, as well as social studies, which she found particularly challenging.
Next up for the enterprising scholar is pursuing a career as a certified nursing assistant at Trident Technical College.
“I did it — I did it on my own,” she said proudly.

UPDATE: After our report on Wednesday, DHEC reached out to News 2 letting us know they have approved the water permit, so the store can begin the process of opening. DETAILS HERE.
MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCBD) – People living in Moncks Corner have been long awaiting the opening of a new Publix shopping center. While the grocery store appears to be ready to open, many are now wondering “what is the holdup?”
“If you live in the area, you are excited about the store coming in. What we’re not excited about is how long it’s taking for it to open,” said Robert Esclavon, who stops by the center occasionally to see its progress.
The 75,000 square-foot Publix at the new Moncks Corner Marketplace was announced about two years ago. Today, things basically look finished – there are grocery carts inside, fixtures in place, and shelves waiting to be stocked. But still, the store sits unopened.
Based on a January 2021 press release, the shopping center was slated for completion in June 2022, with Publix expected to open in fall 2022.
“The few people I run into say it looks like it could be mid-September before it opens. I don’t know if they know what they’re talking about, but for a store that’s complete – except for product on the shelves – it makes you wonder what’s holding it up,” said Esclavon.
Esclavon reached out to News 2 to find out what is going on. Leaders with the Town of Moncks Corner said they are waiting on final approval from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
“Right now, we are just waiting on DHEC to approve the water supply system over there. All the engineering has been done- the water is clear, it’s just a matter of getting everything signed off on the state DHEC office and they’ll be able to start moving in people and supplies,” explained Douglas Polen, Moncks Corner Community Development Director.
One person, who was familiar with the construction project, said they had to wait a few weeks for Berkeley Water and Sanitation to get their water meters installed. That process is now complete, and they have been waiting on DHEC for the past week and a half.
Officials with DHEC tell News 2 they are going to see what they can do to expedite the rest of the approval process so the store can finally open for business.
Esclavon said that is why he called us for help.
“Just having you guys, like you guys research it a little bit and maybe you push them along to have this project move up … they’re ready to go, I think,” he said.
Moncks Corner officials said once DHEC gives its final approval, Publix could open in as little as three to four weeks.

The lights are on, the cameras are rolling, and the action is taking place in Moncks Corner.
The film industry is back in the Lowcountry, with filming kicking off Tuesday along Main Street.
“I kind of equivalate it to a major sporting event,” said Moncks Corner Mayor Michael Lockliear. “Because you’re going to bring people into town that usually wouldn’t come this way.”
With construction cones in place and law enforcement directing traffic, the stage is set for the pharmacy.
Delta Pharmacy has been transformed and prepped for Hollywood’s Woody Harrelson and Laura Linney, the stars of the drama film Suncoast.
But for Lockliear, the town and its businesses are the show's true stars.
“They’re going to be shooting all the way up until noon tonight,” he said. “They’re closing down Main Street at seven and will shoot on the Hwy 6 Main Street, so that’s exciting. It will expose those businesses, and it’s exciting to have a Hollywood studio production here in the Town of Moncks Corner.
Tuesday afternoon, the tents and truckloads of gear in Delta's parking lot caught the eye of Monica Early, who was shopping across the street.
“I knew something was going on, but I didn’t know what it was,” she said. “Put our little town on the map like it’s never been before. I believe you need to use local small towns when possible for these big movies. If you can use local, that just ups the value of your town.”
While Charleston has captured the eye of Hollywood in recent years with the filming of the series Outerbanks and Righteous Gemstones, Lockliear hopes the same recognition can translate to what he calls South Carolina’s best-kept secret.
“When people come from outside that normally wouldn’t come to Moncks Corner and see what we have to offer, they want to come back, and it’s great to have that,” he said.
Now is your chance to play a small role in Suncoast. To learn more on how to sign up to be an extra in the film, click here.
Through his travels on both coasts, barbering has been a rewarding experience for Julian Kelly, who owns and operates his CTB (Confidence Through the Art of Barbering) shop in Moncks Corner.

Through his travels on both coasts, barbering has been a rewarding experience for Julian Kelly, who owns and operates his CTB (Confidence Through the Art of Barbering) shop in Moncks Corner. But individual success isn’t what life’s all about for the Los Angeles native, as he’s currently seeking to expand the pool of aspiring barbers he can shepherd through the process of gaining certification and realizing their career dreams.
Until now, Kelly, 47, has welcomed a host of trainees to learn and work in his place of business — located at 391 Corner Square Plaza — as part of his on-the-job instruction program, which limits him to two shop apprentices over an 11-month period.
Going forward, the enterprising philanthropist hopes to generate the necessary funds to open a college that would allow Kelly to service 30-90 people a year. As a member of this group, each student would be able to earn a barbering state certification over a period of eight months to two years if needed.
If all goes according to plan, per the one-time Naval officer, seven or eight out of every 10 of his students will consist of foster children, disabled individuals or formerly incarcerated men and women who are seeking a second chance in life.
“To me, in my experience dealing with that, a lot of people go back and forth to jail because they really don’t have a map in life. They really don’t have anything to lose. So, our purpose in that is to try to give them a reason to stay out of jail, to try to give them a way of life they may not have thought of and give them an income — a purpose,” explained Kelly, a father of five, who has been cutting, shaving and grooming heads at a professional level since 1998, although he initially acquired his skills back in high school.
“I mean, it’s the same thing for foster kids and a lot of them lose their way because they don’t have anything to keep them structured. So, I try to create structure and give them a reason to [work] and to be able to pay their bills, and be able to look their family in the face and be something — give them something to be proud of.”
Kelly prepares his students by advising them to put in their “mileage” in terms of working on as many heads as possible before he can confidently deem an individual ready to undergo state testing and ultimately emerge as a full-fledged barber.
That testing also entails plenty of reading, said Kelly, which includes tackling literature on the history of barbering, where it originated and what people did before the advent of modern-day barbers.
Once someone has refined their cutting and grooming skills, he added, their next challenge is building a strong client base, which nowadays requires both novices and grizzled pros to broadcast their work via social media channels (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube etc.).
To that end, barber stations inside CTB are all equipped with cell phone holders that are used when the cutter and/or hair stylist is attempting to record video while tending to a customer.
“That’s how you get your following and how get people to know what you’ve been doing. I believe that in this field, everybody should know you as a barber and then you won’t really have to be looking for people to fill your chairs up,” continued Kelly.
The other key to mastering the art of barbering is servicing a wide range of customers, including females, to avoid falling into a routine of providing everyone with the same haircut, which can sometimes happen in large chain businesses.
Being versatile, he noted, means being well-versed in handling any type of follicle variation and/or texture, along with knowing how to work with the elasticity of different skin types.
“I like to cater to everybody in the community. I don’t care what your ethnicity is, what kind of hair it is, I like to teach my students not to be scared to get into anybody’s hair and give them what they want.”
