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!

Simply Amazing!

Faye Smith Agency was a wonderful company to work with. I used their makeup services for myself, my bridal party, and family members - everyone only had great things to say and felt beautiful for the big day! They are very responsive, kind, and overall super professional. I would highly recommend their makeup services to any future brides :)

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😉

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!!! 🤩🤩

Great Experience!

I loved working with Faye Agency. They’re
professional and very responsive. I worked with Farrah and Gretell they both did at great job at doing my bridesmaids hair and make up. And I felt so beautiful on my wedding day too! They made the getting ready part a really fun and memorable experience!

Makeup Artist Become Friend

I had 2 experiences here. First I tried airbrush and got an allergic reaction. After this happened I had the most in depth conversation with Faye about what happened what products we used at the trial. I had suggested another artist I liked and Faye went to check her profile to make sure she was a good artist for me before I booked her.
I ended up booking Victoria in Toronto. OMG Victoria can do wonders. I have rosacea on my face - she used all non-alcohol based makeup, DID NOT go all glam, went Suttle on the makeup but enough to show its there which is exactly what I wanted.
Let's just say at our first look, tissues were involved!

Very very happy

They were easy to communicate with. They delivered beyond my expectations and I’m glad I went with them. They are understanding and easy to work with. The girls that did my bridesmaids were all so nice and really talented and of course Faye blew it out of water. I felt so pretty and it was exactly what I wanted. I had me, two moms, two flower girls and 7 bridesmaids. My only wish is that I had given myself more time and had the photographers come after the hair and makeup was done. You can’t rush perfection. But the girls were all really fast and efficient.

Just wonderful!

The communication was stellar, and my team of artists (Noa and Kseniia) were beyond accomodating, talented, and just a treat to work with! I was a little nervous with my vision being to look like a whimsical fairy princess, but both girls were super excited to work a little bit outside the box of a tradtional bridal look. Everything held up super well through the heat, sweat, and tears. I couldn't recommend them enough!!!

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.
