About Us

UGLY MODELS Agency.

We like our women fat and our men geeky, we like the extremely tall and the shockingly small. No one is too abstract for our books! We are Ugly. And we are the leaders in character modelling.

With a unique outlook on modelling, our philosophy is simple – “Any beauty can be airbrushed but we want our look to have true character.”

We know each and everyone of our artists by name and face, and are the first and last modelling agency to still send books to clients; each jaw-dropping, coffee-table sized book shows off all our talent and their bizarre attributes!
                                                                                                                                                                               
We hand pick all our models to make sure we have a look for every market. With over 1,000 models on our books ranging from 18-100 years old, sizes 6-30, we have the most individual, wacky and peculiar looks in the industry; from trannies to grannies, burlesque to bikers, wee folk to rock blokes! We have the rarest and most eye-catching individuals in the country.
 
Guinness World Record breakers?  No problem. We represent the tallest guy in the world - Sultan Kosen. At 8ft1, he’s got legs to die for! Need two human pin cushions?  Prince Albert is scattered in 241 piercings. Not enough? Then we have Elaine Davidson to top that with an astounding 2,520.

We have worked with everyone in the business, giving the fashion fix to Vogue. Literally providing Calvin Klein with a new set of nashers. And tattooing our mark on Bizarre Magazine. Just look at our portfolio page for a taster.

We represent the niche market with Ugly but we also represent conventional models with Rage. Rage focuses on more traditional looking models so with both agencies we are able to fit the right face to the right fad. If you have luscious locks and fab-abs you’re still Ugly to us!

We placed one ad in 1969 for a unique appearance and since then the rest is history.  We’ve never advertised since.  We have four decades of expertise and saw a gap in the market creating a key movement in the industry. We hold auditions every 18 months to join Ugly specialising in the extreme not mainstream, so if you think you have that special unique something that sets you apart from everyone else, then apply now.
