    Cherrie did an amazing job!

    My usual hairdresser unfortunately needed to go out of town on my wedding weekend, and she recommended I try reaching out to Faye Smith Agency. I sent them an email and they promptly replied the next day.
    After providing some information about our wedding, I was provided with three portfolios to choose from. I liked Cherrie's style and decided to book a trial.
    The trial went great! I asked for a half up-do with a braid and she nailed it. She also made the awesome recommendation to rent hair extensions (which were a fantastic price) to make my hair look even better.
    I had to reach out a few times to change my appointment time and schedule a color match for the extensions but the Coordinators were awesome and always super quick to reply.
    I highly recommend the Faye Smith Agency. They will make sure you look absolutely amazing no matter the occasion.

    Blown away by how great we all looked!

    Working with the artists from Faye Smith was truly amazing! Iki is AMAZING and my makeup looked exactly as I had envisioned it would look. Taylor and Harinder were also fantastic and as a team they had my bridesmaids and I looking flawless all evening.

    Professional and Talented

    I cannot say enough good things! I had so many questions and the team's email responses were always so quick and so helpful. When it came time for the wedding day hair and make-up, Anastassiya and Sima were an amazing team! They arrived on time and were done ahead of schedule and were both SO TALENTED! Myself and my bridesmaids looked drop dead gorgeous! Highly recommend this fabulous company. ♡

    The best makeup ever!

    On my wedding day, I was worried about the makeup as I have a really oily skin. But the after look was so beautiful, I felt confident with my makeup. For the whole day till dinner time I didn’t have to do a touch. Everyone loved my make. Would definitely recommend Faye Smith Agency my bridesmaids and I looked stunning.

    Thank you :)

    Bride and Bridesmaids Hair & Makeup

    We had the best experience getting our hair and makeup done by the Faye Smith team. We had 10 bridesmaids, 1 bride, and 1 mother of the bride getting their hair and makeup done. They were easy to communicate with, and were very flexible. I was concerned about the timeline being tight, so for a small extra charge, they sent an extra stylist to solve the problem. We had 6 stylists (Alice, Zohal, Gretell, Decca, Ali, and Leila). They sent a clear timeline/schedule beforehand so I just had to slot in each bridesmaid to their time. Everyone was very happy with their hair and makeup! It was an extremely hot day, yet everyone's makeup lasted all day and night. They did an excellent job! After my bridal hair and makeup trial, I had a couple changes that Alice took note of for the wedding day, and it turned out perfect! I would definitely recommend! Thank you for helping make our day so special!

    Faye Smith Agency's reply:

    Thank you so much for this wonderful review. This is exactly the experience that we aim for and we are so happy you chose us as your wedding day hair and makeup vendor. Congratulations on your new marriage! We can't wait to see photos and hope to get to work with you again on more memorable moments in the near future.

    Best wedding makeup & hair artist!

    I can't even begin to say enough good things about Faye! She did my wedding hair and makeup, and truly made me feel and look like a princess. Not only is Faye an absolute talent, but she will also listen to all your ideas and ask your opinion throughout the process. I fully enjoyed my trial and of course enjoyed my time with her on my wedding day. She is an absolutely talented, kind and professional artist.

    Don't waste your time looking anywhere else - you've found your gal!!

    Faye Smith Agency's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this amazing review! I am so happy I could step in and make your wedding makeup and hair experience a great one. You are truly beautiful and it was a joy working with you. =]

    Amazing!!!

    Everything with Faye Smith Agency was absolutely amazing. I cannot say enough great things about Faye and her team. If you are getting married in the greater Vancouver area you need to book with Faye and her makeup artists! She and her very talented team do everything from subtle to full glam. Some of my bridesmaids don't wear a lot of makeup so they wanted a more subtle look which they were able to accommodate. As the bride, I wanted a full glam look and Faye delivered! I couldn't be happier with how things turned out. There are many makeup artists out here but Faye and her team are by far the best!

    Faye Smith Agency's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write this amazing review! We have seen some of your wedding photographs and WOW! You look so amazing. Congratulations on your new marriage. We hope to get to work with you again on more memorable occasions. =]

    The worst professional makeup I have ever received!

    I genuinely don't often leave bad reviews, but in this case I feel it’s best to warn other brides-to-be. I had booked Faye Smith Agency for my bridal hair & makeup, as well as for my mother & bridal party. I was left so appalled by the makeup I received at my trial (even after requesting the bright pink cheeks to be reduced, the uneven, men’s-looking eyebrows to be sorted out, the heavy Avril Lavigne-style eyeliner to be reduced, etc), that I ended up canceling my whole booking. Despite booking more than 10 months before my wedding, I was never given the option to choose my MUAH artist. When I expressed how unhappy I was after my trial, they were unable to switch me to a new MUAH artist. We’re not talking just wanting to change the lip colour on the day - I walked out looking like a cross between a drag queen & a clown (nothing wrong with drag queens - but not the caked-on look I was going for on my wedding day!). I did not feel pretty, or look like myself, or like a bride at all. I felt so self conscious walking back through town looking like this. Both my fiancé, my friends & my mom thought it looked awful as well. You don’t want people’s reaction to be, “Whoa, that’s a lot of makeup” - you want them to say, “Wow, you look beautiful”. Within an hour of being home, it had smudged down my face. I couldn’t wait to wash it all off. The MUAH artist & office manager were nice people, but the makeup skills were just not there, & my overall experience was very stressful. To summarise: I do not recommend booking with Faye Smith Agency!

    Faye Smith Agency's reply:

    Georgina, we appreciate this feedback and are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our services. Our goal is to make our brides feel beautiful on their wedding day and we pride ourselves on the work we do to make that happen



    We are sorry we were unable to provide you with other available artist options after you were unhappy with your trial. Destination weddings pose more challenges with artist availability due to long drives, ferry rides and overnight hotel stays being involved. We did try our best to fulfil this request for you. We assure you that you were booked with one of Vancouver's most well-known, skilled and experienced artists who is extremely capable of adjusting your makeup and hair design for you so it is perfect for your wedding day. We have since wrote a wonderful blog for our Brides so they can learn more about the trial process, https://fayesmith.ca/prepare-for-your-wedding-hair-makeup-trial/. We are sorry we couldn't make you happy.
