The Value of Organic Beauty

Posted on: April 17th, 2015 by admin

5 Reasons for (1)

We all want what’s best for our children. As your daughter reaches the age when skin care and make up become more important, we suggest stocking her regimen with pure, natural products. Charlotte, our resident beauty expert breaks down five reasons why you should consider organic beauty for your teenager or young adult.

  1. Keeping the cells and blood stream clear of toxins helps your teenager to grow into a more healthy adult. 60% of what you put on your skin goes directly into the blood stream!
  2. Chemical ingredients in non-organic beauty products clog pores and sebaceous glands, which can lead to breakouts and acne at a time when your daughter’s skin is most vulnerable.
  3. Organic products use pure and gentle plant extracts, grown without harmful herbicides or pesticides, which can prevent healthy cell regeneration and turnover.
  4. Organic make-up and skincare are much gentler on skin than their chemical alternatives, and are much less likely cause negative reactions on the skin or in the immune system.
  5. Organics are eco-friendly and an excellent choice to teach your child about caring for the environment!

Head to Ooh! Beautiful’s location on Pitt Street in Mount Pleasant’s Old Village for more information about organic makeup and skincare, and for a refresh and consultation by one of our talented beauty experts. Call (843) 856-3585 to book an appointment!

Kelsey & Grahams Cotton Dock Wedding at Boone Hall

Posted on: April 7th, 2015 by admin


Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. When I walked into the Cotton Dock on Saturday and saw how everything looked, but especially the greenery on the tables and the greenery around the menu, I was completely blown away. You have an image in your head of how everything is going to look, but you still don’t know what to completely expect until you arrive. Needless to say, I was already excited to see the finished product, but I still managed to be blown away by the real thing. You and your team did an absolutely amazing job, and we can’t thank you enough. You helped makeSaturday even more special than it already was for Kelsey and me, and we can’t thank you enough.And stepping back, we thoroughly enjoyed working with you and the rest of the Ooh!/Out of Hand team over the last few months. The only thing is that I can’t believe you were going to let us get away without having a dance floor! It was the hit of the party!Thank you again for everything. We are fortunate to have crossed paths, and I’m glad you were able to play a key part in our big weekend.

All the best,

Graham & Kelsey



















Easter Outfit Inspiration

Easter’s around the corner, but there’s still time to shop a fresh Spring look for the occasion! Read on to see our picks for this year’s festivities.


Take a simple dress to the next level with a colorful light scarf for Spring. We love these two options from Blank London. They add the perfect touch of color and style during the day and keep your shoulders warm on chilly Spring evenings! What more could you want?


You can’t beat a classic: pastels on Easter. This year, change up your usual look! Layer sheer floral lace and a delicate statement necklace over a classic blouse and pastel culottes like the Tracy Reese ones pictured here (that’s right, ladies, they’re back)!


And if pastels aren’t your thing, go vibrant! We can’t get enough of Blank London’s watercolor prints with tribal-inspired accessories. Bright beads, layered necklaces, and tiny tassels? We’ll take them all!

For even more attire inspiration, visit Out of Hand on Pitt Street in Mount Pleasant’s Old Village, where our girls will help style your perfect Easter outfit!

South: Try a Moscow Mule in our Copper Mugs!

Posted on: March 24th, 2015 by admin

Spring has sprung, and we’re craving a refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for warmer weather: the Moscow Mule. It’s hard to believe, but this cocktail was first mixed at the famous Las Vegas Cock N’ Bull out of necessity. The Cock N’ Bull owner had a large amount of homemade ginger beer to use at the same time a friend was looking to get rid of a large stock of copper mugs. They combined resources, added fresh-squeezed lime juice, and the rest is history. The Moscow Mule became one of the most popular cocktails of the 1950s and 1960s – and has experienced a recent revival, finding it’s way back onto many cocktail menus. Pick up a copper mug in SOUTH– available in a small ($25) and large ($30) size – and try making this cocktail at home! Our favorite recipe is below.


The Out of Hand Spring Trend Report

Posted on: March 5th, 2015 by admin

Here on Pitt Street, we are more than ready for Old Man Winter to get on his merry way. Jill Bowman, Out of Hand’s Store Manager and Style Guru, is looking on the bright side and gave us her Spring Trend Report. Stop in to see Jill at Out of Hand, and reset your mind while restocking your closet using her Top 10 Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2015.

1. Leather and Suede

Kind of like that Stevie Nicks song, but not quite. These fabrics are not just for fall any more. We have a beautiful collection in-store from illia that mixes lightweight leather, linen, and cotton.

Leather and Suede

2. Bold, Bright Colors

We’re loving this season’s burst of luscious lemon and red. After a cold and dreary winter, a refreshing splash of color in your wardrobe is a basic necessity.

3. Novelty & Floral Prints

Do these scream “Spring is in the air!” or what?

4. Tea Length Skirts

Quite simply the epitome of femininity. {Channeling Audrey Hepburn!}

5. Body Chains

These delicate chains are feminine, sexy, and subtlety enhance almost any figure. Some of our favorites come from Chan Luu.

6. Glitter and Sparkle

Just add a little glam to your outfit with glitter, shimmer, and rhinestones. We’re all about glam-accessorizing with makeup, body lotion, jewelry, and nail polish.

7. Laced-Up Looks

Laced-up shoes and clothing should be your best friends this spring. Because, really, what’s better than wearing something comfortable and sexy?

8. A Bucket Bag

Big or small, the bucket bag is this season’s “it” purse. You need one. Trust us. You’ll never look back.

9. Sneakers with Anything (and Everything)

Sneakers have come a long way, baby, and this season, you’ll start seeing these kicks everywhere. Think of sneakers as your new spring shoe staple.

Embellished Sneakers

10. White Dresses

You know that “rule” about never wearing white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day? Break it.

Ooh! Beautiful: Meet Charlotte

Posted on: February 16th, 2015 by admin


Walking into Ooh! Beautiful you may have the opportunity to meet Charlotte Yeager, the newest member of the Art of Creating Team. Charlotte has moved to Charleston to enjoy a slower pace of life after making a name for herself as a makeup artist in Los Angeles, London and Chicago. She is embracing her new Mt. Pleasant lifestyle, while breathing new life into our Old Village shop. Charlotte prides herself on building special relationships with each customer and celebrates all kinds of beauty. She truly is a bright light that leaves you feeling more beautiful inside (and out ) after having a makeup or skincare consultation; even brightening your day with just a touch up!


She has implemented a new beauty menu at Ooh! Beautiful; the most surprising being the “full face airbrush”. An experience I can attest to! I was a guinea pig during the trial phase and can tell you with 100% certainty that your makeup will not melt off your face during your sweltering gorgeous summer wedding in the south!
