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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - For people with loved ones at some correctional institutions across the state, taking a visit to see them in prison earlier this week was not possible because of staffing shortages, according to leaders with the South Carolina Department of Corrections.“We’re always going to go with safety,” South Carolina Department of Corrections Director Bryan Sterling says. “If we can’t visit—and I know loved ones really want to visit, either through video or in person—if we have ...
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - For people with loved ones at some correctional institutions across the state, taking a visit to see them in prison earlier this week was not possible because of staffing shortages, according to leaders with the South Carolina Department of Corrections.
“We’re always going to go with safety,” South Carolina Department of Corrections Director Bryan Sterling says. “If we can’t visit—and I know loved ones really want to visit, either through video or in person—if we have to cut something, we’re going to cut something.”
SCDC has hired 126 people since July 1, but there are about 1,300 correctional officer openings at prisons across the state, according to Stirling, though he says they only have funding for about 450. There are about 97 vacancies at Lieber Correctional Institution in Ridgeville.
“Programming, out of cell time, things of that nature—[staffing shortages] affect almost everything we do,” he says.
The department has had staffing issues for years, and Stirling blames low pay for the problem.
“In 2013, I took over—they hadn’t been given a pay raises in 10 years,” he says. “Besides maybe some updated pay across the board for the state, nobody had ever asked for a pay raise for our officers and they weren’t getting paid overtime.”
To combat the issue, however, Stirling says there have been significant pay raises for correctional officers within SCDC. There has been a $30 million pay raise across the board for security and correctional staff, he says.
“Some folks are going to see a 37 percent increase in their pay,” Stirling says. “The other thing we did, we went to General Assembly and asked them if we could drop the age to be a correctional officer from 21 to 18. You can now come out of high school in South Carolina and apply for a job at a corrections facility across this state and make close to $50,000 in your first year. And that doesn’t include overtime and bonuses and things of that nature.”
SCDC is set to increase pay for other jobs within the department, including nurses and maintenance workers like plumbers and electricians, according to Stirling. However, he adds improving retention is another important piece of the puzzle.
“We’re not going to hire our way out of this problem, we have to retain also the folks that we have,” he says.

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - As we head into the second week of school for Lowcountry schools, an area media specialist hopes to keep her students excited about reading.
For many years, Media Specialist Ebonie Ervin has been creating a library environment that helps open her 300 students’ minds to the world around them. She recently says her school, Clay Hill in Ridgeville, converted from a middle to an elementary school.
Ervin says the switch has left her with the task of rebuilding most of the library book collection in the school to reflect the needs of her younger readers.
“There’s a small budget for the library but it’s not enough to build an adequate collection for the students for the different reading levels and different interests so there’s definitely and need,” Ervin says.
For her Donor’s Choose project, Ervin is hoping to to get about 90 class sets of chapter books that she says will help 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students read together and complete a grade level project based on the book.
She says her kids have the desire to read and now they just need the resources and opportunities.
“This helps them build a lot of skills they will need in education and even in the future their critical thinking and reading skills and it’s also important for our reluctant readers. We always have those students that are not really into reading but when they come together to read with their class it really changes it,” Ervin says.
Ervin says she has seen firsthand how reading a book together as a class and discussing the book positively impacts students’ relationships with one another, their love of reading and their ability to collaborate.
This Donor’s Choose project entitled Let’s read together still needs $457 dollars and expires very soon.

A 3 million-square-foot facility – equivalent in size to 52 football fields – is Walmart’s first import distribution center in the state of South Carolina to leverage the Port of Charleston.
Walmart has opened a $220 million import distribution center in Ridgeville, S.C. The April 22 grand-opening event featured remarks from South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and Mike Gray, Walmart’s SVP supply chain of operations, along with a congratulatory video from John Furner, president and CEO of Walmart, and ended with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Our team of more than 980 associates from Dorchester County and the surrounding communities are excited to officially open the doors to our new import distribution center,” said Jeff Holzbauer, general manager of the new facility, at the event. “South Carolina is home to some of the country’s most convenient and efficient modes of transportation, including the Port of Charleston and Interstates 26 and 95. Being a member of this community means having the advantage of the region’s existing infrastructure as well as a pool of experienced associates familiar with it. Cutting this ribbon today signifies our commitment to that community.”
“Walmart has been a long-time partner of South Carolina, and as years have passed, they have continued to double down on their commitment to our people and reinvest in our state,” noted McMaster. “Walmart hasn’t only created thousands of jobs in our state – it has become an integral part of the communities in which it operates. Today’s celebration is the result of our state working hard to be the ideal place to do business and a company recognizing the benefit of having our incredibly skilled workforce and premier ports system in its backyard.”
Dorchester County was chosen as the location for the facility because of South Carolina’s business-friendly environment and the county’s proximity to the nearby deep-water Port of Charleston. The new import distribution center will store and sort imported goods that arrive through Charleston – the country’s eighth-largest port – for delivery to 850 regional Walmart and Sam’s Club locations across the Southeast. Once fully up and running, the facility is expected to boost local port volumes by about 5%.
“Walmart is the recognized leader in supply chain innovation and performance,” observed SC Ports CEO Jim Newsome. “Having this world-class company choose our market for their seventh import distribution center is the ultimate vote of confidence in SC Ports and in South Carolina, further solidifying SC Ports as a leader in retail distribution. The strategic investments we have made in port infrastructure enable SC Ports to support global retailers’ supply chains. We are thrilled to partner with Walmart to further their growth and impact for years to come.”
The company also reportedly operates import distribution centers in Alabama, Georgia, Texas and Virginia, among other locations.
“We know our customers count on us for a broad assortment, and this new import distribution center will give us expanded access to seaports, in turn allowing us to deliver a wide selection of merchandise from around the globe,” said Mike Gray, SVP supply chain operations at Walmart. “We also strive to be a store of the community and are proud of how we’ve been able to leverage our investments in supply chain to create economic opportunity and jobs for the Dorchester County area.”
During the grand-opening event, Holzbauer revealed that the new facility is well on its way to exceeding its initial hiring goal of 1,000. Working with the Department of Commerce, Walmart expects to soon employ more than 1,300 local full-time associates at the facility. The company celebrated its commitment to the community with a contribution of $10,000 to Going Places, an area nonprofit organization that gives bicycles to kids in need.
Located at 1030 Timothy Creek Road, the 3 million-square-foot facility – equivalent in size to 52 football fields – is Walmart’s first import distribution center in the state of South Carolina to leverage the port.
Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart operates approximately 10,500 stores under 46 banners in 24 countries, and e-commerce websites, employing 2.2 million-plus associates worldwide. Walmart U.S. is No. 1 on The PG 100, Progressive Grocer’s 2021 list of the top food and consumables retailers in North America. The company operates 122 retail units and employs more than 35,000 associates in South Carolina.

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – While inflation is impacting what you pay for food at the grocery store, a local farmer is making some changes to deal with economic realities.
Hickory Bluff Berry Farms for years has offered a chance to pick your own strawberries. But you’ll soon have the chance to pick other produce in an effort to help you – and them – save money and time.
Lowcountry farmer Michael Parker listed off many of the items grown at the farm in Ridgeville.
“We grow strawberries, blueberries, blackberries – we grow a large variety of produce. We do green zucchini, golden zucchini, Zephyr squash; we grow lots of tomatoes and okra,” he said.
Since opening in 2008, they had strawberries available for U-Pick; but because it has become harder and harder to find people to help harvest their produce, they decided to make a change.
“We’ve actually implemented something this year to try and help with that. With the cost of labor going up and the lack of labor being able to help us, we’ve had to adjust,” Parker explained.
They have a new business model moving forward.
“Most of the produce that we generally pick and sell to large distributors, we’re not picking now till you pick and that allows the everyday person to bring the kids out or come out and select what they want at a fraction of the cost at the store or even here at the stand.”
You can pick the produce, not including the berries, for just a flat rate of $1.50 per pound.
“I like all of our produce; it’s $1.50 a pound. People [can] dig their own potatoes, pick their squash, go pick their own cucumbers.”
Parker went on to say, “We’re trying to shave cost as much as we can. We’ve changed the way that we farm- we’re not spraying the toxic pesticides and chemicals and stuff as much anymore because it costs so much to get it.”
Parker said they are trying their best as farmers to feed as many people as they can at an affordable price.
The Hickory Bluff Berry Farms is open Monday through Saturday from 9 AM until 5 PM. They may open Friday nights from time to time.
New Jersey-based Saxum Real Estate Development and Investment Co. plans to build a pair of cold-storage warehouses at the Ridgeville Industrial Campus to take advantage of fast-paced growth in frozen and chilled food products moving through the Port of Charleston.The state’s Fiscal Accountability Authority on May 31 approved the State Ports Authority’s plan to sell 30 acres at its Ridgeville site to Saxum for $3.3 million, or $110,000 per acre.Saxum’s plan is to build two temperature-controlled warehouses tota...
New Jersey-based Saxum Real Estate Development and Investment Co. plans to build a pair of cold-storage warehouses at the Ridgeville Industrial Campus to take advantage of fast-paced growth in frozen and chilled food products moving through the Port of Charleston.
The state’s Fiscal Accountability Authority on May 31 approved the State Ports Authority’s plan to sell 30 acres at its Ridgeville site to Saxum for $3.3 million, or $110,000 per acre.
Saxum’s plan is to build two temperature-controlled warehouses totaling 395,100 square feet at the site. The $90 million project — which previously went by the code name Project Aardvark — eventually will employ about 100 people moving roughly 985 million pounds of frozen and refrigerated goods, such as pork and poultry, each year. That amounts to an additional 5,000 cargo containers moving through the port’s terminals annually.
A construction timetable was not provided.
It would be the second tenant at the 1,000-acre, rail-served industrial park located at the intersection of U.S. 78 and S.C. 27 in Dorchester County, which the SPA purchased in 2018 from paper and packaging giant WestRock.
Walmart opened a 3 million-square-foot import distribution center at the site in January that supplies about 850 stores with retail goods brought through the port. That $220 million project employs about 1,000 people and is expected to boost annual cargo levels at the port by 70,000 containers.
Dorchester County Council has given initial approval to incentives that would reduce Saxum’s assessed property tax rate for the Ridgeville facility to 6 percent from the 10.5 percent normally charged to industrial sites. The agreement would also refund 25 percent of the company’s tax payments over a 10-year period to help pay for infrastructure and equipment costs. The council is expected to give final approve to the incentives at its June 6 meeting.
Refrigerated cargo at the Port of Charleston has more than doubled in recent years, with growth driven by the Southeast’s booming population and changes in grocery consumption. A report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows there were nearly 151 million pounds of beef and 334.6 million pounds of chicken in cold-storage warehouses in the region — increases of 7.4 percent and 20 percent, respectively.
Within the past year, cold-storage leader Lineage Logistics spent $34 million on an expansion of its North Charleston warehouse, and developer RealtyLink Investments announced plans for a temperature-controlled warehouse at the Camp Hall Commerce Park off Interstate 26 in Berkeley County. Those warehouses join an existing Agro Merchants Group cold-storage facility in Summerville.
The SPA also has invested $73 million to boost its capacity for cold-storage cargo, including expanding its refrigerated rack and plugs and creating a dedicated cold-storage service area at the Wando Welch Terminal in Mount Pleasant.
Privately held Saxum specializes in cold-storage facilities and multifamily developments, with a $2 billion portfolio of more than 2.6 million square feet of warehouses and 1,400 rental units. The Ridgeville facility would be Saxum’s first development in South Carolina, according to the company’s website.
