PRETTY UGLY Cosmetics was birthed in 2009 from Owner and Founding Member of the local giant Studio 7 the Salon and Spa, Rosalind Holsey. Rosalind was an avid makeup user for many years and loved the brand MAC Cosmetics. Despite her love for MAC products, she constantly would have allergic reactions to the products. She began researching manufacturers with the same quality but specialized in being hypo-allergenic. After extensive research, she found a manufacturer based in Canada. Rosalind decided to create her own cosmetic brand based on a personal need and eventually sell inside her salon to all of her clients.
As Studio 7 the Salon and Spa grew, Rosalind didn't have much time to spend on developing the makeup. Her eldest daughter Shanicka was what we considered a "Makeup Addict" since a child. Always sneaking into her mom’s makeup in her earlier years, she became fascinated with applying makeup. Just like most young girls, Shanicka was loyal to well known brands initially until she tried PRETTY UGLY. From the 1st time she put it on, she felt like EVERYONE should know this brand. She would wear products and get so many compliments.
Flash to 2017, after much success in both Mother and Daughter’s separate businesses, they both decided it was a great opportunity to re-brand PRETTY UGLY and make it accessible to women of all shades worldwide.
