The MUAHS Awards honors outstanding achievements for make-up artists and hair stylists in motion pictures, TV, commercials, and live theater.

The big film winners at last year’s MUAHS gala were Coming 2 America, Cruella and Being the Ricardos, but the combined Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar ended up going to The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Before that, one of the guild’s marquee winners — for period makeup/hair, contemporary makeup/hair and special makeup effects — had gone on the claim the Oscar every year since the modern MUAHS began in 2014.

The guild — IATSE Local 706, which has more than 2,100 member worldwide — made history in the spring when it elected Karen Westerfield as its business rep. In a re-run officers election, she knocked off incumbent Randy Sayer to become the first woman and first Asian American to hold the MUAHS’ top post in its 85-year history.
