Standing between the

decide the fate of the contestants.

Taking up the
mentoring roles are: Tane
Tomoana

& Tea salons – Tane’s chopped the locks of Anika Moa,
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Hollie Smith. Joining Tane
is Gee

After spending years perfecting their
craft in their bedrooms, which MUA will prove they can make
it on the mainstage of Glow Up NZ’s
studio?
