Insider Guide: Charleston

Slow down, there. This month, we’re headed to Charleston, South Carolina. The gorgeous seaside city, known for its Civil War history and graceful architecture, is a perpetual favorite of southern belles and warm weather lovers. We asked Darcy Shankland, editor-in-chief of Charleston, for her favorite local picks.

Best Thing About the City

I love that the city is cosmopolitan yet laid-back.

Charleston in a nutshell

Naturally elegant and refined.

Hottest local beauty trends

The Charleston magazine editors and I have been spotting lots of top knots, plus porcupine tips, ends that are dyed an alternate, hopefully complementary, shade. On nails: the reverse French manicure with bold colors as well as some interesting graphic designs.

Our style director Ayoka Lucas’ Style File and Street Style blogs — most definitely.

If I moved away, I’d book trips back just for…

Hair cuts and blow outs with Kelly Baldwin at Parlor on King Street; trips to Cos Bar to get primped and fawned over by the great staff; and sugar brow shaping at Sweet 185.

Best beauty splurge in the city

Facial and Moroccan Oil treatment at the Spa at Charleston Place — divine!

Favorite homegrown beauty lines

Deep Steep body washes and butters, Secret of the Islands coconut salt scrub, and makeup artist Andrew Petersen’s MISIU lip glosses.
