Michael was a great choice for my wedding. His team arrived very early to have myself and 5 others ready for 10:30am. He was professional, he was able to match my vision and he made me feel beautiful. He also gave me some great tips! Would definitely recommend.Sent on 05/08/2019

Fantastic Attitude, Great Result
I very much enjoyed working with Michael Fels. He came to my suite and did hair and makeup for myself and a group of my family and friends, and everyone loved how he made them look. He and his team were fun to work with and had a great attitude. Everyone thought I looked stunning. He's an especially good choice for brides who like a natural look and who don't do heavy makeup themselves, although I have no doubt that he could work with anyone.Sent on 17/01/2019
Michael Fels Beauty | Hair | Makeup's reply:Thank you so much Kristen! We were so happy to make all of your beauty dreams come true and we had an amazing time with your friends and family and of course with you! I think there may be a photo of me shedding a tear of happiness when you came out in your gorgeous dress. I definitely shed a tear of happiness over all the snacks your mom put out, haha. Thank you so much for letting us be part of your day!

He made me look and feel gorgeous!
Michael was great and fun work with! He did my my hair and makeup for my engagement photoshoot, and my makeup for the wedding day. I absolutely felt beautiful, and I received many compliments! I'm not used to having my face fully done since I wear minimal makeup on the daily, but I totally loved how my look wasn't heavy, and I especially loved how it turned out in the photos! He also made all my bridesmaids and MOHs look gorgeous on my big day! I would definitely recommend him if you're looking for a fun, easy-going and talented makeup artist!Sent on 27/11/2018

An Honest and Fun Make and Hair Artist
I'm not a woman who likes a ton of make-up on or is used to having anyone else do my make-up. Michael was able to make me feel relaxed and made me feel like he really valued what I had to say and my opinion. His honesty was SO refreshing. I loved it and got us to come to a decision on things that much faster. I can't say enough good things about Michael's services. =)Sent on 09/10/2019
Michael Fels Beauty | Hair | Makeup's reply:Awwww thank you so much Selena! It makes me SO happy to hear that I put you at ease. I was so happy with the time we got to spend together and I'll never forget doing your trial in that little hotel room you had when you first came to town! You are the most chill and laid-back bride I think I have ever had and I had such a great time with you and loved how we worked together!

Simply the best
The process: My beautiful bride and her daughter spent a full day sorting through different artists. I had her decide on her top 3. I went through Michael's reviews first. Every review came from the heart. A few of them put tears in my eyes. I moved on to the next artist. They were good reviews but none came from the heart. I didn't even review the last artist. I knew Michael was the perfect fit.
The trial: Before the trial date, we went everywhere looking for dresses. We found that perfect one that brought tears to my beautiful bride's eyes. Unfortunately, it came with the company. After our trial with Michael, she looked at me and said "This was the first time I have felt like a bride". During the session, my step daughter got the music going and Michael shook his rump. My step daughter ate it up. She loved it. My beautiful bride looked amazing.
The big day: A few days before the wedding, my bride was a wreck. She was nervous about walking down the aisle and very nervous about giving her vows. She was concerned about crying all the way down and she was going to race through her vows. I don't know what Michael did or said to her, but she came out, grinning from ear to ear and she crushed the ceremony. I was the one blubbering through my vows. It was a pretty incredible day. Fortunately, everything went smooth, we made some great decisions on our vendors. By far, Michael was the best. He did many things, large and small, that made our day perfect. I can't thank him enough.
Michael, you are amazing.

Owner & Lead Stylist
I am Michael, the Owner and Lead Stylist at Michael Fels Beauty.
I absolutely love the experience of working closely with my clients to make them look and feel their best and bring their vision to life. For me it's not just about hair and makeup, it's also about the connection and conversation along the way! I think it is so fascinating to hear someones story about where they came from, where they are now and where they are going.
I've been an artist all my life but it wasn't always hair and makeup!
I studied Fine Art at the University of British Columbia Okanagan and went on to study 3D Animation at the Centre for Arts and Technology Okanagan, graduating with Honours in 2008. Working on a computer felt like a dead-end job, which led me to the Makeup Artistry program at the John Casablancas Institute in Vancouver, where I graduated with Honours in 2015.
I then worked for MAC and Anastasia Beverly Hills where I received further extensive training, while also working in many other areas of hair and makeup such as photoshoots, fashion shows, music videos, short films, trade shows, conventions, and in salons.
Eventually I left the world of retail cosmetics to pursue fulltime freelance and start my own business: Michael Fels Beauty.
In my spare time I also like to paint, and sell both my original works and prints of my paintings!
