Fancy Face Team | Stacey

Makeup Artist + Hairstylist

Stacey

Stacey has been in the Beauty Industry for over 6 years after studying Cosmetic Techniques at Seneca College as part of their 2 year program. She first enrolled in the program for Cosmetics for a selfish reason; to learn how to apply on herself. She would do her own hair and makeup but never felt fully confident with the results even though she enjoyed the process and playing with different looks. For big events though, she would turn to the professionals but she would get comments from others saying “she didn't look like herself”, and those kind of comments would put a damper on the happy occasions. She knew that if she felt this way, surely there would be others out there who felt the same. She found that some artists didn't listen to what she was looking for and after her certification Stacey vowed she would never be that kind of artist, would always make what the client wants a priority. That is when that initial selfish reason for her enrolment faded, and it became so much bigger than herself. She feels strongly that the beauty industry is ever-changing and ever growing and she is constantly updating herself on all things beauty; whether its spending hours on YouTube or enrolling in specialized hair and makeup courses. She wants to be the kind of artist that is recognized based on the work she has done. If someone should see a Fancy Face client and know Stacey glammed her up-that would be a defining moment of her career.
