UKMUA was created by the founders of Wigs Up North, Jackie Sweeney, Liz Armstrong and Vicky Holmes.
After launching Wigs Up North (WUN) in 2004, the ladies expanded their business a year later to incorporate the sale of professional make-up supplies. When they moved into new premises in 2007, they created a little Aladdin’s cave for Make-up artists. Over the years, the range of products they stock has grown and they created their own range of professional kit products called UKMUA.
To mark 10 years in business, their internet retail site has been re-branded as UKMUA to reflect their commitment to supplying makeup artists, students and individuals in the UK and abroad.
The two companies complement each other and work together to provide a comprehensive service to a wide variety of production companies. They can provide teams of Make-Up Artists for live events or outside broadcasts or offer a full design service for theatrical productions including staff, supervision and controlling budgets.
