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 Seabrook Island, SC! Short on time? Busy schedule? Only available on weekends?

SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Seabrook Island neighbors are petitioning their leaders to cap the number of short-term rentals, stating there is overcrowding due to what they called over-tourism, but the mayor said the town has no plans to do so.
Seabrook Island homeowner Ted Flerlage says over 700 of his neighbors want to cap the number of short-term rentals on the island.
“What we’re trying to do is cap, not end the process of short-term rentals, cap at roughly the present numbers, evaluate what happens after that,” Flerlage said, “and then, determine whether or not we should lower the number of short-term rentals.”
As of June 19, there are 484 of these properties on the island, which residents said has led to overcrowding on the island’s streets and amenities.
Mayor John Gregg said for this year, data gathered over the past few months suggest otherwise.
“We’re not going to be looking at imposing limitations on the number of short-term rental units,” Gregg said.
Coastal Getaways owner Nancy Buck said more people are starting to call the island home, and good rentals are full for around 40% of the year.
She says all of her clients are property owners who rent to help offset the costs of the amenities, taxes and insurance.
“We’ve also gone from 35% permanent residents to 60% residents in the last two years,” Buck said. “Twenty-five percent of the properties have turned over since 2019.”
Buck also adds the majority of the amenities are mostly used by members and not rental guests.
However, the homeowners want the town’s government to hear them out.
“I’d like him to reconsider,” Flerlage said. “I’d like him to look at the reality and listen to the people who are property owners here, the residents on the island. You know, 700 people is a big number.”
“Let’s wait and see how this year goes,” Buck said. “They instituted the short-term rental ordinance couple of years ago, or actually, last year, so let’s give it a full year to see how it goes.”
Both Buck and the homeowners said they want to work out their differences over the next several months to come up with a solution that works for everyone.

The Technical College of the Lowcountry has hired Chef Francine Marz to serve as Dean of the Culinary Institute of the South.
Chef Marz has over 30 years of industry experience, most recently serving as Culinary Director for Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. While at Northampton, Marz oversaw the renovation of the school’s student-run restaurant, culinary kitchen and related facilities. She also headed up the college’s culinary program overseeing faculty, catering and students in the program.
Marz replaces Chef Miles Huff who retired in June, after working to launch the Culinary Institute of the South, which opened in November of 2021.
“I’m very excited about the building and all the potential opportunities that are here,” said Chef Marz. “The team at the culinary school and the college itself were just the right fit.”
A native South Carolinian, Marz said she was also excited to be relocating to South Carolina’s Lowcountry. “I love this area and the fact that it is a growing area, and just everything it has to offer.”
TCL President Dr. Richard Gough said the college was “very happy” to have Chef Marz join the team.
“Having worked in the industry and also having opened and worked at not one but two culinary schools similar to ours made her the ideal candidate for the dean’s position,” he said. “Her energy and enthusiasm will certainly have an impact.”
Prior to working for Northampton Community College, Marz worked for Montgomery County Community College in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, where she was responsible for opening its Culinary Arts Institute and launching the school’s curriculum. She was also instrumental in opening two additional foodservice outlets and managing the institute’s rapidly growing programs.
Before moving into education, Marz worked in a number of restaurants, hotels and resorts across the country, such as Marriott Hotel and Contemporary Resort in Walt Disney World, often serving in leadership roles or as executive chef.
Marz recently earned her doctorate in Organizational Leadership, Innovation and Learning in 2021 from Wilmington University in New Castle, Delaware.
In addition, she holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in International Business and Finance from Argosy University in Phoenix, Arizona, a Bachelor’s Degree in Food Service Management from Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina, an Associate Degree in Baking and Pastry and an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts, also from Johnson & Wales. While in college, Marz worked for several venerable Charleston institutions including the Mills House Hotel, Seabrook Island Resort and Peninsula Grill.

SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - An ongoing battle over short-term rentals is brewing on Seabrook Island, where homeowners say uncontrolled growth of properties is affecting their quality of life.
Homeowners Ted Flerlage and Paul McLaughlin said although they do not want to end short-term rentals on the island, the effects of recent growth have prompted them to call for a cap on short-term rentals.
“If you come here in July, around July Fourth, as a resident walking out boardwalk one, let’s say, to north beach, there’s no space, and that is a rental issue,” Flerlage, who has lived on the island since March 2020, said. “That is a noise issue. It is a parking issue because every spot on the limited parking area is taken.”
The two homeowners have spearheaded the Preserve Seabrook effort. A letter sent to residents as part of the effort says concerns “center on the uncontrolled growth of short-term rentals, especially on streets where there are many full-time and private residential properties.”
“We aim to retain a reasonable offering of properties that can be rented by guests who love to visit and vacation on our beautiful island, while ensuring Seabrook does not gradually morph into a resort community,” the letter states. “We believe adding a cap on the number of resort properties on Seabrook would protect the unique qualities of our island while allowing revenue generated through rental properties to continue to flow back to the town through state and county accommodation taxes that the renters pay.”
Over 300 residents have signed a petition to cap the number of short-term rentals on the island, according to McLaughlin.
The petition seeks a single question on the Nov. 2, 2021 ballot that asks if voters support:
“Seabrook, when I bought here in 2002 and built our house here in 2009, it was more like ‘Cheers,’” McLaughlin said. “Everybody knew your name. Now, with the influx of 500 rental properties and growing, it’s changed a lot, and the quality of life on the island has changed a lot.”
Seabrook Island Mayor John Gregg said a petition from those calling for a cap has been sent to a committee, which will conduct a factual inquiry and then report to town council with recommendations.
“The object for the ad hoc committee was to identify inquiries of factual matters that could inform council as it considers whether or not it is warranted to do further regulation,” Gregg said.
The mayor added that to operate a short-term rental on the island, homeowners need to have a business license and a permit from the town.
McLaughlin and Flerlage said they welcome the data-driven effort but want more communication from the town and to work with them on a solution.
“Our question to them: What is the tipping point? If 500 isn’t the tipping point, is it 600? Is it 700? Is it 800? So, in the meantime, we need to figure it out,” McLaughlin said. “We need to halt what’s going on. Everybody keeps what they currently have, and we study the problem, and we figure out what the solution would be. We don’t make the problem worse while continuing to study it.”
“These are people who live in South Carolina and vote in South Carolina who live on the island and vote on the island,” Flerlage said. “These are the people who are their direct constituents – the people who vote for the mayor and the town council. It’s more than 300 of those people who signed up, which is nearly as many as who voted for them in the last election on Nov. 2, and in our opinion, there has been no communication and we’ve been getting fairly short-tripped on the issue.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- We have reached the unofficial end of summer which means locals and vacationers alike are probably hoping for one last hurrah before the weather turns chilly.
But, according to Charleston Waterkeeper, there are a handful of waterways you should avoid swimming in if headed out on Labor Day weekend.
Out of 20 tested sites, Charleston Waterkeeper reported high levels of Enterococcus bacteria at 10 sites– Melton Peter Demetre Park, lower Ashley River, Wappoo Cut Boat Ramp, Brittlebank Park, Northbridge Park, Hendricks Park, Ellis Creek, Sol Legare, and upper Shem Creek.
It is no surprise to see more RED on the map this week as heavy downpours have caused sewer overflows and as more polluted stormwater runs off into local creeks and rivers, higher bacteria levels often result.
Consider the Ashley River completely off-limits this weekend as REDs were reported at each tested site along the river. Swimming here could open you up to a host of nasty viruses and infections, so it is not recommended.
Unsurprisingly, high bacteria levels were found at Hendricks Park again, so your best option for water-based activities toward the North is Daniel Island’s Children Park where GREEN was reported.
Even though Wappoo Cut Boat Ramp showed RED this week, there are other options available if you are hoping to put the boat. Head over to Hobcaw Creek or Patriots Point, instead!
Swimmers should use caution when diving into Shem Creek as the lower parts of the creek (Shem Creek Boat Landing and Shem Creek Park) have been cleared, but the residential portion is RED.
Unfortunate news as you head over to James Island where high levels of bacteria were found in both parts of Ellis Creek. Sol Legare also came up RED for the first time this summer, so stick to the Folly River or Clark Sound.
There is good news for hopeful beachgoers! DHEC found no signs of trouble on Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, and Folly Beach. No data was collected for Kiawah Island or Seabrook, but have been clear in previous reports.

One of our very favorite turtles is known as CC001415 in the database for the genetics research project that the Turtle Team has participated in for 13 years. She has nested at least 16 out of 29 times on the Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island. The Google map shows her locations. Some of the pins for the Isle of Palms are on top of each other and not visible. This amazing project identifies individual nesting loggerheads from our collection of a fresh eggshell from each nest. Inside the shell between the membranes that line it lies the secret of her identity where a few of her cells are picked up as the egg travels down her oviduct to receive the shell before being laid. For 13 years, we have put an eggshell from every nest in a vial of alcohol for SCDNR to collect and send to the University of Georgia where Dr. Brian Shamblin is conducting this research project which spans North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and parts of Florida, reading the DNA of thousands of loggerhead sea turtles. It has been said by many that these turtles only return to the beach where they were hatched, but this project has proved that to be wrong. Some turtles can nest in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia all within one season whereas others tend to prefer to stay closer to home. The amazing results from this research show not only where an individual has nested over the years but also records how many eggs are laid and how many hatchlings are produced. Our special girl, #1415, was nesting in 2010 when the project began. That means she might have been nesting for decades before that year as well since they can live more than 100 years. She usually lays five nests during a season at two week intervals. Then, like other loggerheads, she takes a year off to rest up and recover her strength after laying about 600 protein-rich eggs before doing it again. In 2010, she nested at Cape Romain and at Kiawah andFolly Beach. In 2012, she was at Seabrook and again on Cape Island in Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. In 2014, she went to Cape and Bulls Islands and once to the Isle of Palms and twice to Sullivan’s Island. She must have liked our neighborhood because in 2016 she nested twice on the Isle of Palms and twice on Cape Island. After that she came back in 2018 and this time laid five nests, all on the Isle of Palms.
She did not take 2019 off and laid five more nests on the Isle ofPalms. Our early results show that she is back this year and laid 142 eggs in Nest No. 2 at 5th Avenue on May 18 and 137 eggs in Nest No. 7 just a half block away at the 5A path on June 1. These healthy nests had hatch success rates of 94% and 96%. We are guessing that three more of our 2022 nests will belong to #1415 as well, but the results are not in yet.
As of Aug. 3, Isle of Palms has recorded 41 nests and 14 hatchings. Sullivan’s Island has recorded 13 nests and four hatchings.
