Hey There!

Hi! I'm Ann! I opened Wake Up and Make Up to provide high quality salon and spa services, with love and care. I love everything about my work, but the most enjoyable part, to me, is meeting and connecting with people. I love the satisfaction of building relationships with my clients by learning about their needs and helping them feel beautiful inside and out!

Come in and experience the soothing, refreshing, ambient setting of Wake Up and Make Up by Ann, away from the every day stresses of life.



All About Ann

My name is Ann Covalt.  I worked as a Certified Medical Assistant for 10 years in Orthopedics, Internal Medicine, and Podiatry.  In June of 2018, I made a career change to help women improve their outlook on their lives both internally and outwardly. I trained at the Aveda Institute in Chicago and graduated in November 2018. I learned Aveda Facial techniques, special makeup techniques, and waxing techniques. All geared to your personal/individual skin type.


I provide a calm, quiet oasis for all my clients.  You will feel rejuvenated and relaxed, away from the daily stresses of life. I enjoy working with each of you personally to bring these elements into your everyday life at home as well.


I visited the Kryolan Professional Makeup Center in Chicago and fell in love with their brand of makeup. I have been trained and certified on how to apply makeup for everyday, weddings, photography, tattoo coverage, disfigurements, theatrical, vitiligo etc..  I will customize to your specific needs. 


The most enjoyable part of my work is meeting and connecting with people, building relationships with my clients, and the satisfaction of giving my clients beautiful, healthy skin. I love to work with people to help them unwind and feel great inside/out.


I also love to spend time with my husband, Dave of 33 years. We have 3 grown children, 3 grandchildren and one on the way, 4 cats and a 25-year-old turtle!


God has truly blessed me in this journey with amazing, supportive people that surround me continuously!  I love bringing joy to everyone!


Thank You for your support!
