We recently chatted with the Bridal and Event Coordinator at ANiU Salon. If you’re looking for wedding hair and makeup services at ANiU, Carolyn is your go-to gal! ANiU is staffed with stylists with advanced bridal training, and Carolyn will work to pair you with the right one for your style and schedule. She will work with you to coordinate all of your appointments and help ensure you don’t miss any beauty-prep details!
How long have you been in business?
We have been in the business of weddings for over 30 years since our opening in 1988. I took over my current position during wedding season in 2017 and am excited to continue to build on ANiU’s excellent reputation.
Why did you choose to pursue your current profession?
I have always had a passion for weddings! Helping each bride have a fun, easy start to such an important day makes me feel amazing! Our talented Artists are capable of creating stunning beauty looks and it’s such a joy to match each bride with an Artist who can deliver on our promises of excellence.
What sets your business apart?
The experience of coming into a space where everything is ready and tailored to you makes the day run smoother. Each bridal party leaves our space each morning looking amazing and feeling more at ease about the coming day. Our Bridal Team is fantastic and has trained with Celebrity Artists and Beauty Influencers from a variety of backgrounds including Project Runway stylist and International Platform Artists. Our Artists prioritize their education and it shows! We offer trials and consultations for brides looking to explore a variety of options and I work exclusively with each bride to schedule all appointments. We love our brides!
Describe your ideal client(s).
The ideal client would be a bride looking for a professional salon setting and great customer service. We have high-standards and hope you do too! We love all the unique personalities that come through our doors and love celebrating beauty and love with each of you!
What is your most frequently asked question from engaged couples?
The most common question I hear is, “When do I book my appointments and trials?” I suggest brides book their wedding-day appointments 5-6 months in advance to ensure they get the day and time they want. Trials should be scheduled about one month before the wedding date since your length and color will be similar to how it will be on your wedding day. You can consult our Bridal Beauty Checklist for a helpful timeline of suggested beauty services!
Who inspires you?
My mom is a huge inspiration to me. She taught me to pay attention to details and make sure everyone is happy and taken care of!
Do you have a quote you live by?
“Only Up” has always been an important mantra in my life. No matter what happen, you can always go up! This drives me personally and professionally to always seek excellence and find ways to improve on each experience or situation.
