Primp & Proper is sister companies with Vancouver’s top Makeup & Hair Artist Agency, Faye Smith Agency. P&P first opened in 2015 when Faye Smith Agency, formerly known as Faye Smith Makeup & Hair, outgrew its live/work studio. As the company introduced more beauty services, including eyelash extensions, eyelash lifts and brow threading, the salon rebranded to Primp & Proper.

In 2020 the Founder, Faye Smith, alongside her longtime friend Joanna Keller, owner of Joanna Keller Beautique, decided to combine their businesses under one roof. Consequently, a unique, women-led space was born!

Following a period in Vancouver’s Chinatown district, in July 2020 the duo finally settled into their current location, 73 East Cordova St, in the historic Gastown area.

This quaint little salon offers a wide variety of beauty services, specializing in lashes, brows and blowouts. The retail collection here consists of some of the best in beauty products. If you love Olaplaex, K18 or Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics you will love shopping online or in-store with this small business. Primp & Proper offers free shipping on orders over $99 and free local pick up at the salon located at 73 East Cordova Street in Vancouver BC Canada.
