With the addition of Rod Stewart and Ron Wood the "small" part of the original band name was dropped, and they continued as Faces. Still, their first album was released in the U.S. under the name "Small Faces" due to a "mistake" by their record company.

Their most successful songs included "Had Me a Real Good Time", their breakthrough UK hit "Stay with Me", "Cindy Incidentally", and "Pool Hall Richard". As Rod Stewart's solo career became more successful than that of the group, the band became overshadowed by their lead singer. A disillusioned Ronnie Lane left the band in 1973, replaced by Tetsu Yamauchi (who had replaced Andy Fraser in Free). Released at about the time Lane left, Faces' final studio album was Ooh La La, about which Stewart was very scathing in the musical press on its release, much to the anger of the others.

A live album early the following year, Coast to Coast: Overture and Beginners, was criticised by reviewers for being poorly recorded. They recorded a few tracks for another studio album, but had lost enthusiasm and their final release as a group was the late 1974 UK Top 20 hit "You Can Make Me Dance, Sing, or Anything". In 1975 Wood began working with the Rolling Stones, which brought differences between Stewart and the others to a head, and in December the band announced that they were splitting.

All members had varied post-band careers. Wood joined the Rolling Stones as a full member; Lane formed Slim Chance and had a modest solo career that ended prematurely when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Lane also worked on an album with Who guitarist Pete Townshend. Jones joined The Who after the death of Keith Moon; McLagan was considered by Pete Townshend to join the Who as well, but was touring with the Rolling Stones at the time. He married Keith Moon's ex-wife Kim, moved to America, formed the Bump Band (which tours and records to this day), and became a successful session musician; and Stewart's solo career was massively successful. 

There was also a Small Faces reunion in the late 1970's (without Ronnie Lane) that resulted in two albums. Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriot did however both work on the Majik Mijits album.

Although they enjoyed modest European success compared to contemporaries such as The Who and The Rolling Stones, Faces have had considerable influence on latter-day rock revivalists. Their good-natured, back-to-basics (and frequently liquor-laden) live performances and studio albums connect them with such bands as the New York Dolls and The Damned, as well as Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols.

As well as punk rock related bands, various acts playing different kinds of music, ranging from The Replacements and The Quireboys to The Black Crowes and, groups such as The Charlatans, BRMC, Primal Scream, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Whiteout and Stereophonics have all taken influence from the Faces in some way.
