Tonya Carter
Salty Waves Salon

Salon Owner & Stylist

I opened Salty Waves Salon in May 2016 with a dream of creating a welcoming & come as you are environment in a local Midcoast Maine salon. I have been in the business for 14+ years and have run other local salons, but felt it was time to take on my own to create that dream.

I have traveled all over the United States to advance my education and stay up to date with current styles. I went to school at Capilo Institute in Augusta, Maine. I love being a cosmetologist and pride myself in my ability to properly consult with my clients. We all see the same image differently, so my job is to consult properly to make sure we both see the same thing.

I live in Friendship, Maine, a little fishing village in Midcoast Maine. I have raised four beautiful children and am excited to focus on my career and build my business to be bigger and better now that I have completed my #1 focus. Some of my hobbies and interest include traveling to new locations whenever possible. Whether it be to watch sporting events, somewhere warm in the cold winter months or to educate myself in the beauty industry. I also love summertime in Maine, anything at the beach or on the water is the best!!
