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!

Meet Danielle

My love of hair started when I was about 7 years old. I would cut, color, and style any doll I could find! At 15 I began working in a local salon as a shampoo girl/receptionist. This solidified my journey into the field of cosmetology.

I specialize in all areas of hair design, cuts, colors, highlights, fashion colors, Brazilian blowouts, extensions, special occasions, and even perms.

Several years ago, I fell in love with Aveda products. They leave your hair in excellent condition using natural ingredients. Not only are the products good for your hair but also the environment and small villages around the world.

What I love about doing hair is meeting lots of people! I enjoy getting to know myclients personally and establishing friendships.

People trust me because I am very honest. I will always answer questions truthfully and will never make a decision about your color or style without your approval.

On a personal level, I have two amazing children! A son and a daughter, both in college. They are my best friends! I also have 1 sheltie named Jovi, who visits the salon frequently, 2 cats, and 2 rabbits. So, you know I am an animal lover!

When I am not busy doing hair, I find myself doing a myriad of crafts. Check out my hair bows that are for sale in the salon. When time allows, I also love to cook and bake. I am also a crazy Cubs fan and have been my whole life! Baseball in general just makes me happy! So does my hair band music!

I am a lifelong resident of Crystal Lake. My family has been here for multiple generations. All CLC graduates…Go Tigers! I love this community and want to keep it a good place to live. Someday I would love to be mayor! I have a lot of good old stories that I love to share.

We are different

What sets Kryolan apart from other make-up brands, professional or otherwise, is our dedication to meeting professional make-up artists’ needs and demands. Every sector has its own expectations, for example theatrical make-up must be extremely hard-wearing, so we only produce formulas that can perform under industry pressures.

Cruelty Free

Our products are cruelty-free. We do not test any of our products on animals. Our products are industry leaders in safe animal-free testing.

ECARF certified

The products and services we certify have been fully adapted to the needs of allergy sufferers. An independent advisory panel of 15 leading international scientists and technicians has developed the criteria we use to evaluate different product groups, such as creams, vacuum cleaners and hotels. They include threshold values and exclusion criteria that make an allergic reaction very unlikely. The criteria are regularly updated to reflect the latest scientific findings. A product receives the Seal when it can be proved through audits or studies that the criteria have been fulfilled.
