Natural Textured

In a time when extravagant dyes and unique hair extensions are all the rage, the natural look will always be trending. This haircut is a great way to rediscover yourself and let your beauty shine organically without overdoing it.

The Shag

The Shag

This medium-length haircut is a classic throwback to the 79s, with a layered look, messy bangs, and lots of attitude. If you like to get ahead of trends before your friends, bring back the shag and rock this retro style with pride.

Curly Bangs

Curly Bangs

This cut will look great during the summer and will give you an innocent look that will get plenty of attention. Great for a short-term haircut or even something special for a big party or Gen-X event.

Long Length

Long Length

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.

Find Your French Flair with Balayage

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 St. George, SC! Short on time? Busy schedule? Only available on weekends?

WASHINGTON, Utah, Jan. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Yaw Ababio Boateng, MD, Ph.D., FACP, is being recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Trusted Nephrologist for his exemplary work in the Medical field and his praiseworthy contributions to the healthcare communities at University of Utah Health, St. George Regional Hospital, Dixie Kidney Clinic, Hurricane Dialysis and Kidney Clinic, Iron Mission Kidney Clinic and Mojave Desert Dialysis and Kidney Clinic.

A seasoned nephrologist with 23 years of experience in nephrology practice and 39 years as a physician, Dr. Boateng is affiliated with University of Utah Health. He sees patients at University of Utah Dixie Kidney Clinic in St. George, UT, Iron Mission Kidney Clinic in Cedar City, UT, Hurricane Dialysis and Kidney Clinic in Hurricane, UT. and Mojave Desert Dialysis and Kidney Clinic in Mesquite, NV. He is Medical Director of Davita Mojave Desert Dialysis Center and Davita Hurricane Dialysis Center. Dr. Boateng specializes in general nephrology, ICU nephrology, all dialysis modalities (hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and home dialysis), chronic kidney disease, electrolyte abnormalities, and hypertension.

As a nephrologist, Dr. Boateng provides hospital and ICU consults for patients who present with chronic kidney disease and hypertension. His main hospital practice is at St. George Regional Hospital in St. George, UT. His expertise is in chronic kidney disease, and he has done extensive research in the area of the use of natural methods of healing. In fact, he has authored a new book on the topic released this month (October, 2022). The book is called: "Reverse Chronic Kidney Disease- How to Improve Kidney Function and Avoid Dialysis." It is already available in ebook form and the paperback should be available in a few weeks.

Davita Hurricane Dialysis Center has 12 dialysis stations and a team of professionals to support their patients receiving dialysis. The associated clinic also provides care for patients with kidney conditions that include chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, and others. Mojave Desert Dialysis and Kidney Clinic has ten dialysis stations and a kidney (nephrology) clinic in the building and functions in a similar manner.

Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the kidneys. It is the study of normal kidney function and disease, the preservation of kidney health, and the treatment of kidney disease from diet and medication to renal replacement therapy. Nephrologists have advanced training in treating kidney disease. They diagnose and treat kidney failure and help patients by prescribing medications, offering particular diet advice, and coordinating dialysis care or kidney transplantation when necessary.

With a broad educational background, Dr. Boateng obtained his B.Sc. in Human Biology and his medical degree from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology School of Medical Sciences (KNUST-SMS) in Kumasi, Ghana. He also holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree (Ph.D.) in Clinical Pharmacology from the University of Aberdeen in the UK. Upon relocating to the United States, he completed his internship, internal medicine residency, and nephrology fellowship at the Montefiore Medical Center North Division/New York Medical College.

He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP), and is board-certified in nephrology and internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM). The ABIM is a physician-led non-profit independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world. The doctor is also a member of the American Society of Nephrology.

Dr. Boateng currently serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Utah. He is a published author in peer-reviewed scientific publications, including the British Journal of Pharmacology, the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, and the European Journal of Urology and Nephrology. The doctor is also an author of children's books and has published three titles with Heinemann International. He recently published a paperback and ebook on Chronic Kidney Disease: "Reverse Chronic Kidney Disease- How to improve kidney function and avoid dialysis". It is available on Amazon.

In light of this recognition, Dr. Boateng wishes to honor the loving memory of his father, Stephen Oti-Boateng. On a personal note, the doctor has been married to Mrs. Cecilia Boateng for 39 years. They have three children. He also would like to acknowledge the guidance of his mentor, Jinil Yoo, MD, professor of Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, and the continual blessings of Almighty God.

Community helps well-known local figure experiencing homelessness in Lancaster

LANCASTER, S.C. — You can often see Mr. George walking around town in Lancaster, usually talking to someone near the doorway at 107 S. White Street.“He’s very kind and you can talk to him for 20 minutes or 30 minutes,” said Bill Selvitelle. “Mr. George usually walks around the city of Lancaster at different places he makes his home he’s been doing that for years I’ve been told.”But in recent visits, Selvitelle has seen the health of Mr. George decline as he has been experiencing h...

LANCASTER, S.C. — You can often see Mr. George walking around town in Lancaster, usually talking to someone near the doorway at 107 S. White Street.

“He’s very kind and you can talk to him for 20 minutes or 30 minutes,” said Bill Selvitelle. “Mr. George usually walks around the city of Lancaster at different places he makes his home he’s been doing that for years I’ve been told.”

But in recent visits, Selvitelle has seen the health of Mr. George decline as he has been experiencing homelessness.

“His feet were getting so bad. He couldn’t stand up and walk and he got to the point as the months progressed, that he was no longer able to walk,” said Selvitelle. “He was just laying down all the time.”

Beckee Garris noticed Mr. George’s condition as well. She works across the street on S. White Street, and she told Channel 9 about her last conversation with him.

“I asked him if he needed anything,” Garris said. “And they said, ‘Yeah, I’d like some coffee,’ and I said, ‘Well, how would you like it?’ and he said, ‘Black.’”

But that was a few weeks ago. White Street hasn’t seen Mr. George walking around because he’s in the Lancaster hospital after community members rallied to get him care.

“They came up with a game plan to get him off the street under a protective custody order,” said Selvitelle.

“Thank God, he’s getting the help he needs now,” Garris said.

But Selvitelle says Mr. George’s situation is part of a larger issue, saying he’s “just one of many.”

“Other people are living in the woods or living behind buildings, and there is a homeless population that really needs a lot of help,” Selvitelle said.

Garris said she’s just thankful Mr. George has a community looking out for him.

The College of Charleston is ranked in The Associated Press’ Top 25 poll for the first time in two decades.

The Cougars, 14-1 overall and 2-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association, have one of the nation’s longest win streaks at 13 games, and are ranked No. 23 in the AP Top 25 poll that was released on Jan. 2.

Charleston was No. 26 in last week’s poll, just 10 points behind No. 25 North Carolina and 24 points back from No. 24 West Virginia.

North Carolina lost to Pittsburgh, 76-74, on Dec. 30, while Kansas State defeated West Virginia, 82-76, on New Year’s Eve to open the door for the Cougars.

Meanwhile, the Cougars trounced Hampton, 89-61, on Dec. 29 and defeated defending CAA champs and preseason favorite Towson, 76-74, in overtime on Dec. 31.

It’s been 20 years since the Cougars made an appearance in the AP’s Top 25, the last time coming in early December 2002 after Charleston captured the Great Alaska Shootout for a 6-0 start.

The Cougars received 116 points from the 61 AP voters, six more than last week.

Charleston’s 14-1 start is the best since joining Division I in 1991. The Cougars have won 13 straight contests, good for the nation’s third best winning percentage (93.3).

The Cougars sit at No. 49 in the NCAA NET rankings and No. 90 in the KenPom rankings. The Cougars lead the CAA in scoring offense (80.4 ppg), offensive rebounds per game (13.40 rpg) and 3-point field goals made (10.13 pg).

Charleston is the first CAA team in the AP Top 25 since Navy was ranked No. 18 in January 1987. George Mason cracked the coaches top 25 poll in the 2005-06 season.

Rankings and winning streaks have been subjects that head coach Pat Kelsey and the players have been reluctant to address during their win streak.

“I’ve avoided talking about polls, like crazy,” Kelsey said after the overtime victory over Towson. “In my heart, do I feel like we are deserving, yeah. I do. Obviously, it would be a really good thing for recruiting. A really good thing for our city. A really good thing for the university and good for what we’re trying to build.

“Those things are out of my control. I think we’ve done everything we can to put ourselves in the best position to do that.”

The Cougars will travel to Greensboro, N.C. to face North Carolina A&T on Jan. 4, before returning to TD Arena on Jan. 7 to take on Delaware beginning at 5 p.m.
