About Tim: Although he is a Columbia native, Tim has also lived in Clearwater, Fla., and Kansas City. Tim has traveled to Guatemala, which he says is one of the best places he’s ever visited. However, he also enjoys Clearwater, as well as Bull Shoals Lake if he’s looking for a weekend getaway. “I love to be part of the community,” he says. “I love to volunteer for festivals, especially True/False Film Festival and Roots N Blues N BBQ.” Although this “mobile partier” can be the ringleader or a great time, Tim hates public speaking. “I can debate or have a natural conversation, but in front of a large crowd, I get nervous. As long as I keep eye contact with someone, I’m fine.”

Charlut loves: Lipstick and eyeliner; she never leaves the house without them on.
About Charlut: Charlut had recently seen “becoming a model” on someone’s bucket list, and she decided to add it to her own, which brought her to the Columbia Home Fresh Faces Casting Call. She has now checked that off her list, in addition to a lot of other activities that would categorize her as a daredevil. She’s jumped off cliffs in Mexico, swam with dolphins and sharks, gone parasailing and even driven a fleet of huskies on a dogsled. You go, girl! When she’s not out being adventurous, Charlut enjoys living in Columbia with her husband of 38 years.

Behind the Scenes of Fresh Faces
Our four fashion models received the full treatment from Blanc Studio’s stylists.
Each of our models was touched up using Dinair makeup. Why do master stylists Victoria Araujo and Jennifer Hovis choose to use the airbursh applicator instead of traditional makeup techniques?
What it is: A lightweight makeup applied through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup and creates a very matte finish, a finish that can be thin or heavy depending on the application.
The benefits: Airbrush makeup is long lasting. Unlike traditional makeup, your picture perfect makeup will not rub off or look anything less than flawless and fresh even if it’s mid-evening.
Airbrush makeup has become extremely popular in the past few years. This is largely due to the perfect complexion on models who are airbrushed to give every part of their bodies a flawless finish. But there’s a difference between airbrushed photos and airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup is a technique used to directly apply makeup to models. It is nontransferable, which means that slight rubbing or brushing against something or someone will not cause the makeup to come off of the face. Black clothes will remain black after hugging someone wearing airbrush makeup. Airbrush is also used often to camouflage tattoos or any unwanted skin discoloration or imperfections.
Airbrush makeup sessions start at $35.
Style Me Handsome
Tim Chancellor, our male model, played nicely with all the estrogen in the salon on photo shoot day. And believe it or not, Tim received just as much styling as the ladies did. However, stylists Victoria and Jennifer know that when men come into their studio, they’re all about quick and easy looks. But the stylists want to warn men that quick and easy doesn’t always mean aesthetically pleasing.
Men, here are some simple tips to get you on the right style track:
Start to Finish: A trendy, short cut begins with a good haircut and ends with good product.
Knowledge: Product knowledge is key for men, not only for the look of their style but for their scalp health. Cheap product can lead to clogged hair follicles, which can lead to loss of the follicle, aka hair loss!
Quality: Having a good stylist behind your hair not only ensures that your hair will always look nice, but also it helps you keep your scalp a healthy, happy place for hair to grow.
Long story short, the incentive for a men’s haircut should be a good haircut, not a 10-minute wait and a pitcher of beer.
Male haircuts start at $25.
