No-brainer

My experience with Faye Smith Agency was a no-brainer. From the onset their speedy responses, their flexibility and ability to provide many artists (we had 5 on my day!!) made our morning start of the wedding day bearable (9:30am start!), and made their cost worth it! My makeup artist was lovely and so sweet, and it was very comfortable getting my hair and makeup done with her and being honest after the trial what I liked and did not like. I would definitely recommend Faye Smith (and already have to 2 of my friends getting married) for anyone who is interested in the whole hair and makeup package!

So Pampered!!

I worked with Hanna who I booked as a Junior Stylist but she actually was recently promoted to Senior Stylist! Which is super exciting for her and was an amaKnf deal for me. Because I was out of province, I didn't have time for a trial. Hanna was so good and worked so well with me that even without the trial she helped me figure out what I wanted and it looked amazing. It was even better than what I imagined. She was so sweet and professional as well. I felt to pampered for my special day and I am so so glad I booked with Faye Smith and Hanna!! (I got hair and makeup for bridal in 3 hours!!!)

Still dreaming of my H+M 1 year later!

My husband and I are coming up on our first wedding anniversary and I'd be remiss not to give a huge shout out to Faye, Anastassiya, Jessica, and Caitlin from Faye Smith Agency for doing the most stunning hair + makeup for myself, bridesmaids, and mom. Faye did my bridal H+M and it was everything I asked for - classy, simple, natural, and light. I don't like wearing makeup so felt a little uneasy with the process, but Faye made me feel so comfortable and adjusted everything to suit my needs. She also did a beautiful job with my abundance of hair! I also received glowing feedback from my bridesmaids and mom for their H+M done by Anastassiya, Jessica, and Caitlin. It was a difficult process to choose my H+M vendor and, without a doubt, I'm so happy I chose Faye Smith Agency. Highly recommend and I'll be using them again in the future!

The best possible agency I could have gone with for my special day!!

The artists from Faye Smith I chose — Iki, Alice and Alexandra, had a daunting task ahead: do the hair and makeup for the bride (me), and do the hair of 9 bridesmaids and 1 future mother in law in less than 4 hours in order for our ceremony to start right on time.

Not only did everything get finished with some time to spare, but everyone, absolutely everyone, looked drop dead GORGEOUS, and most importantly, confident!! Iki absolutely crushed it with my makeup and hair, I felt like a fairy Princess which is exactly the vibe I wanted, not to mention she was so lovely and made me feel so comfortable, even when I was starting to get the nervous wedding jitters! Iki, Alice and Alexandra really worked their magic with the hairdos of my bridesmaids and my mother in law to be as well, everyone couldn’t stop smiling with how radiant and beautiful we all felt at their hands!!!

Thank you to Faye Smith Agency for sending these angels to us, making my special day feel extra special and being so gracious, patient and warm with us on a day we all needed it most with so much happening at once. I will never forget this experience, and all my future bride-to-be girlfriends will be sent your way!!! 🤩🤩

BRAVO! Super talented art work!

First of all, BRAVO! to the artist, Alice, and her manager.
I was on a very tight budget so I couldn’t book for makeup and hair trials. But I was emailing the details of what I want to have with the artist manager.
And they understood very well what exactly I wanted from pictures and sentences! Beautifully done.

I was too excited for my own wedding day and couldn’t sleep the night before.
So Alice lets me sleep during the session and I felt freshly awakes!
She was punctual, very gentle, and kind, and made me calm and relaxed to relieve stress.

And I was so tight schedule, and I was probably super in a hurry and couldn’t even say goodbye to her in the end.
I’m so sorry, you were amazing and awesome. I just didn’t have any space in me that time to appreciate you there.
Thank you so much for your hard work and special talented gift!

I will definitely recommend Alice to my friend who is going to be a bride next year😉

Faye was the best!

I absolutely loved the serve from Faye for my wedding, she went out of her way to text me the day before the wedding. I was super indecisive on what look I wanted, I loved how my trial went however changed my mind after doing a fitting with my dress so we just winged it on the day off and she understood exactly what I wanted, made me feel so beautiful!! Would highly recommend her! Thanks Faye :)

Faye Hart
Owner & Lead Stylist

Faye Smith Makeup & Hair began in 2007 when I started my career as a solo makeup and hair artist. My training began in my home country, England, and continued across seas to Canada where I attended the world-renowned makeup school, Blanche Macdonald, in 2008.

Since then, I have grown my company into a team of incredibly talented artists, and have rebranded the company as “Faye Smith Agency.” Myself and my team have won the BC Wedding Awards Best Wedding Hairstyle award in 2015 and 2018, and acheived a finalist position in 2019 and 2020.

I now offer a range of beauty services at my studio, Primp & Proper, which includes makeup and hair artistry, professional hair and makeup education, lash lifting, brow and lash tinting, brow and facial threading.
