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.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - What should have been a new chapter in their lives has turned into a nightmare for some Mount Pleasant homeowners. Mold, ventilation problems and structural issues are just some of the complaints listed in lawsuits filed against the builder and HVAC contractor.
The Midtown Townhomes by Lennar are one of the newer builds in Mount Pleasant. It’s located off of Hungry Neck Boulevard and they’re listed as luxury townhomes. From the outside, many would think it’s true but neighbors say things have gone wrong.
“I started looking around, I mean opening closets, and I was just like ‘Oh my God,’” Kim Conway, who bought her townhome in 2020, says.
Conway says she was gone last summer for about six weeks. But when she came back, there was mold on every floor.
“My furniture, my bed, my mattress… everything was damp when I came home,” Conway says. “Like my sheets were wet. Everything was wet. And I lived in here for four days like this. And my furniture, these chairs… they had to come in and clean every piece of furniture. Everything. There was nothing left in this house.”
Conway says she had to move into a hotel while Lennar cleaned it up. According to documents from her attorney, it cost about $14,000.
She’s not the only one dealing with issues.
“I need to have the air conditioner work properly so that there’s not too much humidity in the house and it won’t blow constantly,” Karen Tinsley, who bought her townhome in 2021, says. “I think the unit is not the correct type of unit. I have a sink in the kitchen that’s cracked from the factory. I have a water heater that I’ve replaced because the plumber said that it was too small for my unit.”
Tinsley says she’s had problems since day one.
“My oven didn’t work properly. I have a gas stove and it was flickering so they had to go in the attic and make a bigger line for that. And I’ve had cracking of brick on the outside. There’s all kinds of wall problems upstairs. I have a bowed out floorboard and someone came in and said, ‘well we’re going to have to take out the wall because the plate and the wall isn’t attached to the sheetrock.’ So that means they’re going to have to come in and tear out the wall and fix that.
Tinsley says of the laundry list of items she has sent to Lennar to fix only about 25 percent has been done. And she’s wary if they’re actually done correctly. She says the most concerning thing to her, though, is the cracking bricks.
“I have these dreams where that my entire house is falling down from the outside and everything inside is all going to just fall down,” Tinsley says. “It’s like how scary is that? That’s what I’m stressed out about.”
All in all – neighbors just want their new homes fixed and for Lennar and the other companies to own up to the problems. That’s why they filed the lawsuits.
As of Thursday, the lawsuit against the HVAC company, Fogel Services, is pending in Charleston County. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit against Lennar for procedural reasons, but a motion for reconsideration of that dismissal is currently pending. Neither company has responded for a request for comment as of Thursday.
“I think Lennar should accept what they’ve done and they know they’ve messed up these buildings,” Conway adds. “They should fix them. They should be responsible and just fix them. And learn how to build.”
They’re also offering some advice to home buyers.
“I would say don’t rush into buying anything get an inspector,” Tinsley says. “Maybe get two inspectors. Get some advice from other people to go in and look at the history of the place. Don’t rush into a brand new construction because they’re taking shortcuts these days to sell.”
This isn’t the first lawsuit against Lennar. There are more than a dozen listed in Charleston County alone listed on the court’s website dating back more than a decade alleging similar problems.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant leaders are set to discuss the design of a new food, entertainment and public gathering space coming to the town Wednesday night.
The space is called Gather Mount Pleasant and it is set to be on Midtown Avenue right across from MUSC Midtown in Mount Pleasant and off of Hungry Neck Boulevard. It is set to be a project that could have an economic impact of more than $30 million. The plans for Gather Mount Pleasant include a unique indoor/outdoor area with different food options, local small businesses, and shops with local crafts.
“An amazing place to be in community with family, friends, co-workers and strangers,” Mack Cross, with Four Oaks Property Group - the development company over the project, says.
Gather Mount Pleasant is modeled after Gather Greenville but this one is going to be much bigger.
“We’ll have complementary uses around it – small offices, small retail spaces, there will be a boutique hotel component here with 36-rooms and an event space,” Cross says.
The space is also going to be able to host live music. But, that’s something neighbors who live at Lennar at Midtown Townes aren’t happy with.
“How do you avoid that?” Tomi Dinkins, who lives at Lennar at Midtown Townes, says. “So you have your AC on maybe you have white noise on and then what do you do next? What’s the next step? Do you have to wear earplugs in your own house to avoid the noise that’s inevitable when you have a place that’s having three to five outdoor music festivals or events. You know, that many times a week. How do you how do you escape? Like, if I’m someone going to a concert? Awesome. I love a good concert, you know what I mean? But then I get to go home. The 72 people that live here, not only do we not want to go to your concerts that are in our front yard, but we also can’t escape them.”
“I want to feel confident in assuming that they didn’t fully know what was happening and how close it was to actual residences,” Dinkins says.
The developer says they have changed their plans a little to try and help with the noise.
“We shifted things further away from the Townhomes a little bit,” Cross says. “And the news right now is the changing noise ordinance in Mount Pleasant – whatever that ends up being when the project is operating is what we’ll comply with. It will be open-air – but the project will kind of frame the courtyard – we like to call it an outdoor room essentially in the middle of the project to a large courtyard. So the structure should help buffer that sound.”
Dinkins also brought up the concern of parking and traffic. Cross says their new plans include a parking lot for the facility.
Gather Mount Pleasant is expected to cost $30 million and the goal is to have it open by early 2024.
The Design Review Board Committee Meeting is set for 5 p.m. Wednesday. To see the proposal, click here.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The Shemwood One neighborhood in Mt. Pleasant is celebrating a re-zoning win against overdevelopment. Their motto is keeping the Lowcountry land low-density.
The group showed up with dozens of people wearing red to a planning commission meeting to stop a re-zone that would change land next to theirs from low density to medium density.
Those neighbors say they aren’t against a developer building a few more homes next to their homes over on Russell Drive off of Coleman Boulevard, but they don’t want the land re-zoned to allow too many houses.
They say they live in Mt. Pleasant because it’s different and want to protect the feel of the town.
“In order for Mt. Pleasant to remain different growth has got to be controlled. We don’t want to continue changing low-density to turn our town into a big city. I think our collection of 10 to 15 pages of signatures against this rezoning speaks volumes to how we all feel,” says Angela Bridgefield, a Shemwood One Resident.
Neighbors cited traffic, a nearby school where kids walk and ride bikes, drainage, and the natural land as reasons to stop the re-zone.
The city did note at least three historic trees on the property that would have to be protected.
“That’s part of our scenery. I sit out on my back porch at night, I listen to the frogs, I listen to the crickets, I sit under those oak trees, and to do this rezoning would change the dynamic of my entire backyard,” says Karen Campbell, a Shemwood One Resident.
Despite developers saying they would work around trees, neighbors say there’s no need to re-zone the land.
The current low-density would allow for 17 houses to be built. The re-zone to medium-density could allow between 20 and 24. The commission agreed with the people in Shemwood One neighborhood.
Commissioner Kathy Smith initiated a motion to deny saying in terms of development, she wants to listen to the people already in the area.
“I think we have an obligation to existing homeowners whenever we’re dealing with a project to do it in a way that’s really sensitive to the people that are already living there, to protect their property values, to protect their quality of life,” says Smith.
Commission Member Gary Davis seconded her motion.
“Mt. Pleasant is getting overdeveloped right now. I think if the owner of this property wants to come back with an alternate plan… more acceptable to the people who live in the area that will not infringe on the quality of life, then they can come back to the board again,” says Davis.
The entire board voted to deny the re-zone. Neighbors left the meeting feeling relieved and open to the idea of developing some houses on the land with the zoning as is.

There’s a place tucked into the thickets of Murrells Inlet — north of the bustle in Mount Pleasant and south of the Grand Strand’s endless party — where history, nature and art thrive together. It is a conservatory, an enormous 9,127 acres boasting a collection of figurative sculpture, a 250-acre botanical garden and a zoo full of animals indigenous to the area. It is a place for preservation and peace, where the native flora and wildlife of South Carolina reign proudly.
With a calendar full of exciting events and a second-to-none setting, it’s also the perfect place to get away for the day. This is a slice of our coastline that is tucked away from the ado, a sanctuary for all living things. It’s a place to become like one of the statues peeping out from behind a blooming magnolia tree or like a doe just passing through the brush—an ethereal hideaway.
Brookgreen Gardens is beautiful on any day, but some of the coming summer events offer prime times to visit the grounds. Summer Light: Art by Night is an amazing display of light-art installations and music that takes place after hours. On Wednesday and Saturday nights only, May 11 through August 13, the botanical gardens are set aglow to create a unique aesthetic for guests to enjoy. A host of different bands plays at each event, while many options for food and beverages will be available. This is an art show unlike any other in the Lowcountry and a chance to experience technology and nature in a brand-new way.
Another event to check out is the Brookgreen Gardens Art Festival, June 4-5. Both national and regional artists and craftsmen will exhibit their talents during the weekend showcase. Patrons can browse through collections of paintings, sculpture, fabric art, pottery, glassware and more during the two-day event. This is a great place to add to your own collection or get an off-season start on holiday shopping for the most unique and meaningful gifts.
These events only add to the wonder of Brookgreen Gardens. If you aren’t able to make some of the mentioned dates, there’s still a ton to experience. With the arboretum, three art galleries, research facility and Keepsakes gift shop at your disposal, there is always something to explore at the gardens. These attractions, decorated by the works of over 425 artists and Mother Nature herself, promise an excursion filled with the wander and respite we all need just a little more of in our hurried lives.

MOUNT PLEASANT — A decade-old restaurant near Shem Creek is now under new ownership after selling March 14 for $3.2 million.
Charleston-based Perry Hospitality Group, which owns Charleston Sports Pub locations in the Lowcountry and other dining spots, has added The Shelter Kitchen & Bar at 202 Coleman Blvd. to its portfolio of restaurant venues.
Perry Freeman, who co-owns the restaurant group with Aaron Perry, said they plan to retain The Shelter’s name and menu and tweak the operation as necessary.
“We are going to keep everything as it is for now,” Freeman said. “We like the brand they built.”
Perry Hospitality Group reached out to The Shelter owners after seeing the restaurant listed and decided to pursue the addition because the venue has been performing well.
“We are not trying to fix something that’s broken,” Freeman said. “But we might try to pinpoint an area to squeeze more blood out of the turnip if we can.”
The Shelter was closed Monday because of the transaction, but it will be open daily beginning March 15. The dining spot opens at 11 a.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. weekends. It’s usually open until 2 a.m.
The Shelter was locally owned and operated by Thomas Berry and Ryan Kaufmann, who opened the venue in 2012 after leasing the property. Two years later, they bought the 0.34-acre site for almost $803,000 through an affiliate called Dart Properties LLC, according to Charleston County land records.
Kaufmann said he and Berry decided to sell the operation to concentrate on their new Port of Call Food + Brew Hall on Market Street in downtown Charleston.
“That’s our new baby,” Kaufmann said. “It’s taking up a lot of our time. We had a great 10 years at The Shelter, and the restaurant is doing better than ever. But it’s time to get out while the getting is good.”
Perry Hospitality Group owns Charleston Sports Pub locations in the Charleston area on James Island and in Goose Creek, Mount Pleasant, Summerville and West Ashley.
The restaurant group also owns two other Charleston Sports Pub locations in Clemson and Greenville in the Upstate as well as Coconut Joe’s and Lawrence’s Seafood Co., both on the Isle of Palms.
