The Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists (MUAH) Guild Awards season is upon us.
The MUAH Guild honors both make-up artists and hair stylists outstanding in motion pictures, television, commercials and live theater. Each year they dedicate two special Lifetime Achievement Awards, one for hair and make-up, to the most accomplished MAUH artists in the industry.
Last year’s well deserved winners, make-up artist Rick Baker and hair stylist Kathryn Blondell, were thrilled to be receiving such award. Not to mention winners Dick Smith and Gail Ryan the year before last.
Check out this video of Rick Baker on the red carpet at last year’s gala.
Some excitement on Twitter about the special award has stirred the conversation as to whom next year’s MUAH Awards winners might be.
The MUAH Guild posted on their Twitter account that the online voting will begin Oct. 13th.
