    Beautiful makeup!

    My mom, sister and I hired a Faye Smith makeup artist for our brothers wedding in November and she was amazing! I had so many compliments through the night. Her skills enhanced the look I wanted as it was a fall wedding and I was so happy with my makeup!

    Faye smith agency review - not recommended.

    For our November 2018 elopement to Vancouver, BC I wanted amazing hair and make-up for the big day. Our wedding planner referred Rose Quartz http://www.rosequartzbeauty.ca/ however I was unable to get up to Vancouver for a required trial session with Rose Quartz as we were traveling from out of the country, so was unable to use them….something I regret!!!

    Back to Faye Smith Agency...my grand total invoice was $624.75 (gratuity not included) Before the wedding, for about 6ish weeks I communicated via email with who I thought was Faye Smith, owner of the company, who would be doing my hair and makeup. I was asked for inspiration photos for hair and make-up and was told the look I wanted was doable. At some point, after signed the original contract I added hair extension rentals, which were added to the quote. A week before our wedding I was told a woman with a different name, let’s call her Alice (fake name), would be doing my hair and make-up in our hotel room. Alice? Who was Alice? Could I talk with her before the wedding? Could I see her portfolio? I was told no due to privacy issues. So Alice could know my information as the customer, but all I could know about Alice was her first name. When I asked how Alice would know what I wanted as I had been emailing Faye, I was told all my pictures would be added to my file for Alice.

    So Alice was a lovely person who arrived on time. She had no clue what I wanted other than she was told I wanted a messy updo. So at 6am we had to start from scratch as far as how I wanted my hair and makeup to look as I had to be ready to go by 8am. Basically the many emails sent between Faye and myself were a colossal waste of time.

    In the end, my makeup looked good, but not exactly the smokey eye I was hoping for. I had to touch up my eyebrows a bit myself and one edge of my lashes wasn’t adhered to my eyelid. My hair was not great. The top was flat against my head, which I specifically said I didn’t want. Only three single clip hair extensions were used in my hair at a total cost of $225….just for the hair extensions. My hair style was more fitting for a young girl attending the prom instead of a middle aged bride. The style created did not represent the inspiration photographs I submitted. Honestly, I feel that the stylist Alice did a great job under the circumstances. It seemed she was thrown in at the last minute and was not provide with much information. However, this is not the service I was expecting for $624.75.

    The three hair extensions used were rentals that costs $75. They were added to my contract as an afterthought, so I wasn’t aware they were to be returned in 5 days time or you would lose your deposit. Faye and I even emailed about the extensions and she told me just to “pop them in the mail” afterwards with no addition of within 5 days. The information was in the contract, but since I added the rental extensions as an afterthought, I missed that part of the contract. My bad. When Alice was doing my hair, I stated let’s forget the extensions and she said...well let’s just put a few in. The color didn’t even match my hair color. So, I got the three, single clip, nasty brassy hair extensions added to my hair. Our wedding was on Saturday. Sunday we left for our honeymoon. Thursday, which was Thanksgiving in the USA, we returned home. Saturday the three little hair extensions went in the mail to Canada. Due to a postal strike they were not received by the Faye Smith Agency timely which result in the loss of my $150 deposit. So in the end, three little hair extensions cost $225.

    Out of all of our wedding vendors, the Faye Smith Agency was the most disappointing. No confirmation email ahead of our event or even an email after to check in. All our other vendors both confirmed and thanked us for our business after the wedding.

    If you are considering using this company for your wedding or event, I would recommend you take your business elsewhere. .

    Hey Thea,

    Faye Smith Agency is a makeup and hair artist agency which is clearly stated on all of our online social media platforms, on our website, in our email signature and on our contracts. It is the same business model as Roze Quartz actually. It is clearly stated at the bottom of all of our emails and in our contract that Faye is not always the assigned artist. Our website show cases 17 of our featured artist portfolios. We are sorry if you missed reading this information. I believe we emailed you Andrea's portfolio for you to view and you were very happy with her work and trusted our choice of artist for you. As you mentioned, your stylist, Andrea did a great job. All of our artists are skilled, experienced and we are very proud to have them on our team.

    All of your notes were relayed in great detail to Andrea. She was extremely well communicated with. More so than usual. She had all of your styling notes and reference photographs. She had photographs of the makeup you wanted with detailed notes to go with them. She had photographs of the hair you wanted, with notes. She even had photographs of yourself so she could see what you look like along. There were also notes about your skin and hair type. She was very well informed, more so than our usual bridal clients who choose not to or cannot do a trial run of their hair and makeup before their wedding day. We recommend all brides have a trial run before their wedding day in order to avoid situations like this, though we understand that with elopements, it sometimes is not possible and we are happy to accommodate these brides to. It sounds like Roze Quartz turned you away because you were unable to have a trial run with them before your wedding.
    It is normal for your artist to want to run through your notes with you in the beginning of your makeup and hair session in order to ensure that she understands what you want. It is a good thing that Andrea did this. It really is!

    All of our company policies are listed on our contract that you sign before booking us. The contract is not written in lawyer language and it is not long. It is very clear and easy to read and understand by your average person. There is nothing we do not communicate clearly. Our hair extension policy gives you 5 days to return the extensions to us, plus another 6 days to get part of your deposit back. After the 11 days, we use the deposit to purchase a new set of hair extensions to replace the ones that the bride who has rented them, has not returned. We have requested from you a copy of your receipt that shows you mailed the hair extensions back at a time where they would normally arrive back on time to get your full or partial deposit back. We are waiting for the copy of your receipt and are happy to help you. If the parcell was late due to the postal strike, we are happy to discuss this with you and we have asked to talk over the phone numerous times. Our policies are in place for a reason but we are more than happy to assess unforeseen circumstances and bend the policies under unforeseen circumstances such as a postal strike.

    With regards to the colour of the hair extensions, it was explained via email that blonde is a difficult colour to match without us seeing you in person. Andrea was sent with numerous sets of extensions so we had the highest chance of a good colour match for you. We have done our best for you. We really have and we are still trying to make you happy.

    Faye & Team
