Alpha and Ame are THE dynamic duo! They work very well together, efficient and most of all, the sweetest human beings! I enjoyed their time with us. I would definitely recommend them to people that I know in the Bay Area and San Diego area. They are very dedicated to making the entourage presentable and even more! I love their patience and enthusiasm! The girls were very satisfied with their work! I really liked their company. Alpha even stayed after the wedding which my sister was really amazed and appreciated it. More...

Alpha was wonderful! I don't wear a lot of make up so usually when people do my make up I get overwhelmed. I asked her to do it natural and it looked great! Very flawless. Totally loved it! I wish she can do my make up everyday! ;) I would def recommend her and use her for future events! More...

Alpha was amazing, in presentation and quality of work. I contacted Alpha on a Friday evening for a Sunday morning make up and hair session. She checked her availiblity, sent me a quote, asked for some examples and showed up promptly for a 7am Sunday morning appointment. She was energetic, personable, fresh and ready to work. I asked for a natural look in my makeup design, because I do not have a daily make-up routine and she proved that applying a natural look in makeup could make you look and feel beautiful. In regards to my hair, she was able to create the hairstyle that I wanted exactly by simply asking me a few questions. She made me feel incredible for my bridal shower and the compliments kept coming throughout the event. Thank YOU so much Alpha. I will definitely reccomend her, as I will be using her for future events. More...

I had broken out so bad before my wedding she covered my chest and back for me too. I don't wear make up regularly but My makeup felt so light and comfortable the whole day.

Alpha has helped me out in some hair and makeup type emergencies and she’s been great! Her makeup techniques look great in person and on camera. The makeup stays on all day/night, and I get lots of compliments on my hair. Also, she’s super sweet and has a great energy to be around. I will definitely continue to use her! More...

Working with Alpha from Sweet Fuss was a pretty awesome experience. Initially I thought that the price was a bit on the high side but after seeing her transform me on my wedding day made it all worth it. During my make-up trial, she had given me the look that I had wanted -- very natural face while still highlighting features like the eyes and the eyebrows, and a romantic updo for the hair. I wasn't used to having a lot of makeup since I don't typically wear much makeup and so I didn't know what to expect once I saw the results. I thought it was a good job, but up close something seemed kind of off to me and couldn't quite pinpoint what it was. I had expressed this to Alpha and so on my wedding day she made some adjustments and I fell in love with the look! I was so happy! During the wedding day she had brought a team of 2 other ladies with her to work on my bridesmaids. They all did a wonderful job as well, going off of magazine pictures that I had given them as far as what hairstyle I wanted my girls to have. It seemed like we were on a time crunch as well, but they were able to get everyone done in time, including myself. Alpha was also there to touch up during our photo shoot that followed. She made sure that every strand of hair was in place. She even gave me a little lip kit for the day to ensure my lips wouldn't dry out and lose its lipstick color. She's such a hard worker, meticulous to detail, down to earth, and easy to work with. More...

Two thumbs up to Alpha for doing my wedding makeup! She is very professional on what she does and responds to emails and texts in a timely manner. She is also very nice, friendly and always comes prepared. My sisters also loved her work. I did an outdoor wedding and the hair/make up stayed good and I didn't even need much post ceremony touch up. She did a perfect job on my wedding hair and makeup! More...



21 May 2017

Very accommodating. She really listens to you regarding your ideal wedding day look.



21 May 2017

Sweet Fuss (aka Alpha) is amazing. I have had Alpha do my hair and make-up twice now, once for a Boudoir Photo Shoot and most recently for my wedding. What I love about her is that she makes you look fabulous, but you don't feel as though you have TONS of make up on. Her attention to detail and service is phenomenal, she helped keep me calm and hydrated while at the same time makeing me look beautiful. More...



21 May 2017

For my August 2013 wedding, I found Alpha through recommended vendor lists I received from wineries in Temecula, California. She’s super responsive and so full of energy that I fell in love with her (and her work) during my make-up trial run in November 2012. I liked her work so much that I also hired her to do my make up for my boudoir photo shoot (for my husband’s wedding gift). I cannot say enough about her skill, professionalism and personality. She’s also just fun! Her pregnancy prevented her from doing my wedding makeup but, in true Alpha form, well before my wedding, she recommended other make-up artists for me to try. (I ended up going with Monica from Say Eye Doo.) I would recommend Alpha without reservation. You will not be disappointed. More...



21 May 2017

Alpha did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos and I absolutely loved it. She is so sweet and very professional. We had a blast talking and getting to know each other while she was working. If I didn't have a destination wedding, I would have had her do my makeup for my special day as well. I highly recommend her and would work with her again if I need to have my makeup done for a special occasion. :D More...



21 May 2017

If you want to look your very BEST on any special day, you must go through Sweet Fuss Hair & Makeup Artistry. You will NOT be disappointed!



16 October 2016

I loved Alpha! She was so amazing. Everyone looked so beautiful and couldn't stop raving about how good they looked. She is a true professional and I would recommend her to anyone.



20 August 2016

This review is definitely overdue and I am really sorry for that. Let me first start off by saying that Alpha is AMAZING!!!!!! Amazing is probably not even the right word to describe her. Alpha exceeded my expectations in every way imaginable. She is very personable, sweet, extremely talented in what she does (hair and makeup), flexible, caring, and I mean the list can go on and on. Going into any makeup or hair trial, every girl is a little nervous, but Alpha's personality makes you feel like one of your best girlfriends is taking care of you, which sets you at ease and makes the experience that much more better. I would definitely recommend Alpha to anyone I know. Love this sweet lady! Thank you again Alpha for being a part of my wedding day and making it that much more special. More...



30 July 2016

Alpha is the best! She and her team did hair and makeup for me and my entire wedding party. Everyone was so beautiful! Makeup was natural and stayed on the whole night--airbrush makeup is magic. And her team was the best! So friendly and professional! The hair & makeup trial was great too. She came to my apartment and basically nailed the look I wanted on the first shot.

It was also helpful that she kept reminding me to "breathe, girl, breathe" while she was doing my hair and makeup the morning of my wedding. I guess I was nervous! :) Thanks, Alpha!



29 February 2016

Alpha is SO wonderful. I don't wear makeup regularly so it was important for me to feel comfortable and still look like "myself" with wedding make up on. Alpha was both accommodating and understanding. Seriously, wearing makeup makes me feel anxious so I was super happy when I looked in the mirror and still felt like myself. She's really nice and fun to hang out with which was even better because sitting in a chair while someone's doing your makeup can be really awkward if you choose the wrong person! I couldn't be happier with her work or how perfect she makes you feel.
PS. Alpha's super good and woo-ing your hovering parents, too(;



7 February 2016

Alpha is AMAZiNG!!! She did my make up for a wedding I was in, and her work is completely stunning! She will make you look absolutely fabulous. Highly recommended, very talented!



28 November 2015

Alpha is AMAZING! Her work is AMAZING! I actually booked her months before my wedding because I was so impressed with her work. With all the craziness of planning a wedding, Alpha was the one who reminded me that I needed to schedule my trial when it was a month out; she kept me on track. She gave me a prep sheet of things I needed to do/not do prior to the trial itself. If she was already that prepared for a trial, then I knew I could count on her for my big day. She is completely professional and personable all in one. She makes you feel totally at ease. During my trial, she asked me questions to make sure it was the look I wanted. I don't wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis so I kind of entrusted her with getting me that beautiful and natural bridal look. And she did not disappoint! She even checked up on me later that night to see how my hair and makeup held up -- and it definitely did! I was so impressed after the trial that I booked her to do my hair and makeup for the rehearsal dinner. Everyone was raving about how lovely I looked just for the rehearsal. And of course, my look for the wedding day was more of the same amazing beautifulness. I truly did feel like a beautiful bride. She even helped me put on my dress, prep me for shots with the photographer, spent extra time with me, etc. -- just being so much more helpful than she needed to be. Honestly, Alpha was my only vendor who I was truly, 110% confident in PRIOR to the wedding; she was one less thing I had to worry about on the day of. She also did makeup for the entire bridal party and all the ladies loved their looks. Alpha is incredible at what she does. She cares about the "product" she puts out there. She is well worth the money. I will definitely be booking her in the future for any and all events I will be attending. More...

Alpha did my bridal hair and makeup for our wedding in Malibu, CA. I chose the package that provided an in-home trial (she traveled to my house), full, day-of/on-site hair and makeup services, and touch-up services for before and after pictures. What I appreciate the most about Alpha is her attention to detail, ability to listen to requests (or lack of direction) and execute them well, and professional and personable personality. After spending hours with Alpha for the trial and day-of services, it was important for me to feel comfortable with her and confident that she would execute my vision and requests for this special day. There was not one moment that I felt insecure or uncomfortable with Alpha's work. She is also a complete sweetheart, and is so easy to get along with. The day-of results were even better than the trial, and really exceeded my expectations. Her packages and work are worth the price, and I would 100% recommend her to every bride! More...



1 November 2015

Alpha did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for myself, moms, and bridesmaids. She is sweet, on time, and works miracles . I would highly recommend her her services for a wedding, prom, or any other event. More...



18 October 2015

Alpha did an amazing job on my makeup. I can't even keep track of how many compliments I received about my makeup (even from men!) that day. She was so fun and easy to work with & always making sure I felt comfortable about the way I looked. She is definitely one of the best make-up artists I've ever worked with and feel so lucky that I was able to have her during my wedding day. Thanks Alpha & team! More...



12 September 2015

Alpha did my make-up for my sister-in-law's wedding and I was very happy with the results. Her professionalism and charming personality helped to alleviate an already hectic wedding day for the bride and (I was one of the bridesmaids for my sister-in-law) and the rest of the bridesmaids. I would recommend her highly to any of my friends. More...



4 July 2015

Alpha is so wonderful to work with. She is so easy to get along with, and makes you feel instantly comfortable and beautiful. Her and her assistants listened to everything that me and my bridal party wanted, and Alpha was so flexible to my changes on the big day! I couldn't keep her there all day, but she was kind enough to lend me some of her tools, so I could do my own touch ups. She is so personable, sweet, and very professional. I can't wait to have another event so she can fuss over me! More...



23 May 2015

Alpha is amazing! She's based in SoCal, I live in NorCal, and my wedding was on the Central Coast CA. We were able to collaborate and set up an appointment for my trial in northern CA. My hair and make-up were fantastic. It was what pretty much what I wanted, but Alpha made sure that every detail was on point and that I would be very happy on my big day. Alpha listened to my feedback. One being that my fiance (now husband) is very particular about too much make-up, and Alpha was able to find a harmonious balance with "picture-perfect make up" and a natural look on the wedding day. Come the big day, my hair and face were flawless! She nailed it: The timeline of all the maids, mothers, aunties, and bride, the artistry and skill, and she even had the energy to look amazing herself and stand next to me as my MOH. Thank you, Alpha. You're truly one talented rockstar diva. More...

If you want to look like your most beautiful self on your big day - choose SWEET FUSS! Alpha (the owner/makeup and hair artist) is Amazing. From my first inquiry, she was helpful and informative. I don't wear makeup on a daily basis - she definitely made me feel absolutely gorgeous while being comfortable in my own skin. I first contracted for makeup only (I loved how she had an air brush option - weightless and breathable). However, last minute I asked her to add hair services. She was completely understanding to my bridal needs and found an associate to help her with my and my bridal team (ten girls!) hair. My bridal team LOVED their hair. Personality wise, Alpha is easy going and cool. If I have any other events where I need makeup, she's my girl! Thanks Alpha :) More...



11 October 2014

Alpha and Sweet Fuss was excellent on our Wedding Day! She was so easy to work with and always listened to my wants for hair and makeup. The extra time you get with her for touch ups after the ceremony are an added benefit. She's very flexible with her hair and makeup trial and asks all the right questions to get the look you want. Also, Alpha has an amazing personality and is so fun to talk to. Hope to work with her again! -Crystal (Bride) More...



28 June 2014

Alpha was wonderful! She didn't mind changing things up last minute and was very prepared for my trial and event. I loved working with Alpha for my wedding!



21 June 2014

If you are looking for make up and hair services for your wedding or event, Sweet Fuss is the vendor to book. The owner, Alpha is so professional, talented and fun to work with. These are he qualities I was looking for when booking someone to do my hair and make up for my wedding. She also handled my engagement photos, trial and my wedding party for the big day. I had so many compliments on my make up.

She responded to e-mails and phone calls immediately and was very flexible and clear. She was on time, if not early to set up her station and had chair, lighting, styling tools, and the makeup options were endless, yay for fake lashes! I was at a wedding recently where we were moving around lamps, mirrors and chairs to accommodate he make up artist, Alpha has all that ready to go and would never ask the bridal party to lift a finger!

I loved my hair and make up. I showed her some pictures of what I had wanted and she was able to interpret what I described. The outcome was exactly what I envisioned. It's not always easy to articulate what is in your head but she was very understanding and was more than willing to make adjustments and modifications without it being an issue. My make up and hair lasted until the end of the night.

I truly appreciate her services for me and my wedding party. She was so sweet, and when you have someone in your face for 2 hours its nice to have someone friendly and easygoing. She was good with the moms who were a little bit hesitant about hair and make up and great with my maid of honor who was a little more particular about what she wanted.

Again if you want someone reliable, punctual, flexible, and talented then Sweet Fuss is worth every penny spent. It was one of the best decisions I made!



8 June 2014

Alpha was highly recommend to me and I was so lucky to have found her!
She knew exactly what colors to use and being Asians, we have different eyes and I have always felt other make-up artist didn't know how to work with us!
She did an amazing job on us and our photographs turned out beautifully!!
I have recommended her to my friends and family for their special events!!



3 May 2014

Alpha was professional, extremely friendly and flexible. She was ready for our appointment on time, made us feel comfortable and took extra time to ensure that my daughter was happy with her work.



8 March 2014

Alpha was extremely professional and creative! She made the experience fun and really made me feel special! I loved my hair and makeup!!!!



26 January 2014

You can not go wrong with Sweet Fuss for your hair and make up. I am a soon to be bride and really did not know where to start with finding someone to do my make up and hair for my wedding. I did tons of online research, talked to friends in the cosmetic industry and finally came across the Sweet Fuss site. ( i may have first seen her on Yelp but I can't remember for sure). Anyway, after contacting her to ask about rates and availability she got back to me immediately. This is something I appreciate. I just had my hair and make up done for my engagement photos. I am so confident that I made the perfect choice for the "big day". She showed up a few minutes early and spoke with me about what look I was going for - looking at my pinterest photos. She then set up here chair and lighting and supplies and quickly got to work on my hair and make up. Alpha is extremely professional while still being warm and friendly. I really did feel like she was a long time friend! I had the works, 40's glam hair with airbrushed make up and lashes. I felt beautiful by the time she was done. She let me borrow a red lip pencil for the photo shoot since I am not typically a Red Lip kind of girl. I also had a little snag with online payment(my fault not hers) - I paid more than once and she was great about making sure to refund the amount quickly without hesitation! I highly recommend Alpha. She made me feel special, and the outcome was great. I have gotten so many compliments on my engagement photos and can't wait to work with her again for my trial and wedding. More...



24 January 2014

Alpha came to my home to do my hair and makeup for my engagement photo shoot and went above and beyond my expectations. She listened to every little detail that I wanted (and there were many) and transformed me into a person I never thought I could look like. It felt amazing to feel so beautiful for a day. I've already booked her now for my wedding! When hiring Alpha, you won't be disappointed. More...



19 January 2013

Alpha and her Team at Sweet Fuss are amazing, they made me and my Maid of Honors and Bridesmaids look stunning for my Big Day. Can not Thank you enough. Would def. refer to Sweet Fuss to anyone getting married or in need of incredible hair and makeup. It certainly is and was niced to be fussed over. Thank you Sweet Fuss.

Sweet Fuss worked with me each step of the way to make sure I was prepared for everything: the trial session; proper skin and hair care so that I'd look my best before the wedding day; and the actual wedding day. She sent me tips and was very responsive to my emails. I also was planning my wedding from out-of-state and kept changing the wedding day schedule and how many people I wanted her to do make-up and hair for, but she adapted quickly and seemingly effortlessly (that's an amazing ability - the last thing you want is for a vendor to make you feel bad for what you want). She is also great about getting you to reveal what you really want so that you're truly happy with the result on your wedding day.

Alpha at Sweet Fuss is one of those vendors that at the first meeting, makes you feel as though you're with an old friend. I was so calm and happy on my wedding day while she did my hair and make-up; I knew I could trust her completely, and I've got a very critical mother who doesn't like me to wear much make-up, but she raved when she saw my hair and make-up. It's also amazing when you see your reflection and you've never seen your face look that way before, but it still looks like you and you love it. I also should point out that one of the reasons why I picked Alpha at Sweet Fuss is that she's good at doing make-up on any race, and possibly the best I've seen at doing make-up on Asian faces (me and all of my bridal party that she worked on were Korean and Chinese, with varying skin tones and colors). It's difficult to find good make-up artists for Asian faces, which makes her an especially valuable resource for Asians.



8 December 2012

Alpha was absolutely wonderful! She went above and beyond my expectations by also fixing my hair and putting in my veil at no extra charge. She was really sweet and her makeup application came out beautifully. I received many compliments! More...



18 November 2012

This was my first time ever hiring a make-up artist and hair stylist so I wasn't sure how everything was going to go. Sweet Fuss was awesome! they kept in contact with me at all times, they come to you which is great! and my make-up and hair looked beautiful! without sweet fuss I would have hated my wedding pictures!! I definitely recommend Sweet Fuss Hair and Make-up Artistry to anyone who wants their special day to go smooth and to have pictures they will love and treasure forever. More...



17 October 2012

Alpha was absolutely amazing! Her hair and makeup skills were great, and she is such a sweet person to chat with during all of her services as well. I had her do both my hair and makeup for my engagement photos as well as my wedding, and I was definitely not disappointed! Also, her Sweet Touch personal assistance services were a blessing throughout the ceremony and photos afterwards!! More...



13 October 2012

Alpha is just amazing! Take her a photo and she will duplicate it for you EXACTLY! I've used her on several occasions for makeup, including our wedding and she is just the best! Period! Highly recommended!



2 September 2012

She is amazing!!! Got my hair and makeup done for a Boudoir and maternity shoot. She does amazing work.



16 June 2012

Alpha did my my makeup and hair for my wedding on 6/16/12. She is truly amazing...from trial session to wedding day. On both sessions, she came right on time and fully prepared...complete with her own chair! I loved seeing her set up...all her make up organized and brushes ready to go. I knew she was ready to make me look beautiful.

After my trial session she took many photos and then put them in a photo collage and sent them to me. This helped me see the little changes I wanted to make. I absolutely loved how she made me look, there was only a few minute changes that I knew would make me feel better (those little things that every woman notices about themselves...hehe).

On my wedding day, she really listened to those small tweaks I requested and made me feel that "wedding princess day perfect"!! She arrived right on schedule and again, set up so quickly. She amazes me with her organization! I was feeling a bit stressed as brides do knowing that there was so much going on (ceremony set up, reception set up, etc), but she was so calm and so positive. She help me relax with humor and her positive energy. I really enjoyed talking and laughing with her through my whole session. It's like having a good friend dolling you up for your wedding. I even asked her to stay for our reception (unfortunately she had other plans). She did stay with me through my preceremony photo shoot, touching me up when I needed it (I get really oily at times). I felt like a movie star as she would powder my face and touch up my lips. Loved it! After my ceremony she again touched me up after my tears, making me feel refreshed and ready for more pictures!

Alpha as I said earlier is truly amazing!! She was definitely and integral part of making me feel absolutely wonderful on my wedding day! I can't tell you how many compliments I received on how I looked that day and the questions about who did my make up and hair!!

If you have a special day that you want to look and feel absolutely fabulous for, I highly recommend you book Alpha from Sweet Fuss! She is not only gifted at what she does, but she exudes such positive energy and also truly cares about making you feel wonderful for your event!



20 May 2012

I cannot recommend Alpha highly enough. I won her services for a trial session and wedding day hair and makeup for both me and one other person through a wedding auction and could not have been more pleased with the results. At my trial session, she immediately put me at ease with her warm and friendly personality. Alpha carefully executed the hair and makeup looks I was going for and even took photos at the end of our session. She promptly sent the photos, which were great for seeing what I liked and what I wanted modified, along with being able to send them to my family and bridesmaids for feedback.

On our wedding day, Alpha and her assistant had to get up very early to make the drive to Santa Barbara. They arrived ahead of schedule and with bright smiles on their faces, ready to work. They made my bridesmaids look beautiful and I felt like the most beautiful version of myself. Alpha really took my suggested changes from my trial session to heart and executed the exact look I had envisioned. The one word our guests kept repeating was "stunning" and I have Alpha to thank for it!



22 April 2012

Words cannot describe how amazing Alpha is, but I will do my best. Let me begin by saying that I am incredibly picky when it comes to makeup and having my makeup done. I always opt for doing my own makeup because I am always disappointed in the results of what "artists" come up with. For some reason many makeup artists have a difficult time using colors that work well on me and compliment my skin tone. I honestly think they see blond hair with blue eyes and and immediately go for pinky cool colors, and on me this is not flattering. I end up looking like an 80's Barbie reject.

So when it came time to look for a makeup artist for my wedding I was more than a little apprehensive. I wanted an artist that could clearly do a better job then I could do myself. And, I was also looking for a more natural look, but one where all my features stood out. Personally, I don't like seeing wedding photos where the bride doesn't even look like herself and you hear the comment "That's you?!"

I ended up searching through a ton of artists profiles, web pages, portfolios, and reviews. I finally found Alpha through my wedding planner and I could not have been happier with the result! Not only is her portfolio impressive but she is incredibly personable and takes feedback without getting offended. Now to be honest, she is a little pricier then other artists out there, and I was on a tight budget for our wedding, but I am sooooo happy that I decided splurge a little and go with her. Alpha goes above and beyond any artist I've ever seen and/or worked with.

I only booked Alpha for makeup, but she worked with me every step of the way. I had warned her early on that my skin tans pretty quickly and between the time of the trial session and the wedding my skin had become at least two to three shades darker! Many times this can be an issue, but not with Alpha! She had me send her pictures of my skin and adjusted her makeup palette accordingly so there were no last minute surprises or issues on the day of the wedding. I also had Alpha stay throughout pictures for touch-ups. Not only did she touch-up my makeup but also my hair (which was totally not her responsibility since I only booked her for the former). She stayed by me and helped me throughout the photo session by bringing me water, fixing my makeup, and at one point she even fixed the shirt of a groomsman whose button came off.

If you're looking for a great makeup artist for any occasion, but especially for your big day definitely go with Alpha! And for all you budget brides (I know, I was one myself) cut your expenses in another area. Alpha is worth every penny! She will make you look your absolute best while still looking like you!



15 January 2012

Alpha and her team did a wonderful job on myself, my bridal party, and our mothers. They made us all look so beautiful! Alpha also did a teriffic job on me during my bridal trial session. She was very professional throughout the whole wedding planning process. She is very personable and makes you feel at ease when getting your hair and make up done. I would highly recommend her especially if you want to look your best on your special day. Thanks Alpha! More...



16 December 2011

Alpha not only did a fantastic job with my hair and make-up but she was also very professional, SUPER easy to get along with, and very supportive. She was a body of positive energy matched with a grounded calm that made my stressful and exciting day absolutely PERFECT! She constantly checked in with my comfort level and executed my hair and make-up exactly the way I had envisioned it. I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. Alpha was exactly the type of person I needed and wanted to be there for my special day and I will be sure to use her again for any event where I want to look my best. More...



26 November 2011

Alpha is wonderful. She was really easy to talk to from the get go. She made me feel like I was just hanging out with an old friend the day of my trial session with her. My family and friends go on and on about what a great job she did. Even though I contracted Alpha for just my make-up, she was there to help me with more than just that. She helped me, my mom and my sisters with their hair (we hired a salon that I've been going to since I was a kid) because the some of the ladies rushed. Alpha is stellar, she definitely goes above and beyond. She loves what she does and it clearly shows. More...

In the beginning, I chose Alpha for my hair and my makeup because she has an amazing website with tons of beautiful pictures of her work and second because she had a lot of great feedback from brides who had used her services previously. Looking back, I know that I made the best decision choosing Alpha for many more reasons.

I work a lot and a hair and makeup trial during the work week was going to be a huge challenge for me, especially since I live in Glendale and she is in Orange County. Alpha arranged to drive all the way up to my house and do the trial in my dining room after I got off work. She showed up early, brought her own lighting to achieve ideal results, and tolerated my Boston Terrier sniffing around underneath the table chewing on a squeaky toy. I'm not totally into makeup and I don't normally wear too much, and Alpha was able to translate my personality into a glam makeup look that did not make me feel too made up or overdone.

On the wedding day, it was more of the same. Alpha showed up early and powered through my mom's makeup, my best friend's hair and makeup, my niece's hair *phew* and then my hair and makeup! She is so passionate about what she does, and somehow manages to make the experience feel relaxing and mellow - which is exactly what a bride needs on her wedding day. To have spent my wedding day getting beautiful with all of my favorite ladies and enjoying every minute of it was priceless to me.

Everyone loved their hair and makeup, we probably all consumed too many See's candies and macaroons in the process and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. If you are at all hesitant because the cost may seem high, let me assure you that it is more than worth it. Alpha is as skillful as she is fun, and I truly believe that this was a wedding expense that was worth more than what I paid. Thank you Alpha for giving me everything that I wanted in a wedding look and wedding hair and makeup experience.



10 September 2011

I seriously waited until about a month before my wedding to start looking around for a hair/makeup artist. I was sort of nervous about booking someone so late, but Alpha to the rescue. Alpha scheduled my trial a few weeks before the wedding and she's very organized. After the trial, she sent me a collage of photos from every angle so I could see exactly what she'd done.

The payments all run through her paypal invoicing system and we emailed the contract back and forth. There were a few times where I wished the email responses would've have been a little faster, but as soon as I called her I always received a prompt call back.

Alpha did a perfect job on my wedding hair and makeup. She also did makeup for my Mom and friend and hair for my sister and cousin. Everyone loved the work that her and her assistant did. They were there on time, very flexible about setting up, and she brought along a floodlight with her to make sure the makeup would look great. I basically changed everything from the trial because of my indecisive nature and Alpha totally rolled with it and gave me exactly what I wanted. She even pleased my sometimes hard to please mom and sister. The makeup and hair lasted from noon to midnight without a single glitch.

Lastly, Alpha is just about the sweetest person you'll meet. She followed us from our "get-ready" location all the way to our ceremony about a 30 min drive away just to touch up my makeup for pictures and my ceremony. This was at no extra cost to me, so if you think she's pricey, just remember you are going to get someone that really cares about how you look that day rather than a wedding factory company. She seriously was the last one waiting with me before I walked down the aisle, holding my dress train so it wouldn't get dirty and snapping pics at the same time.

Thanks Alpha!

I LOVED working w/Alpha! She has a very pleasant personality & answered any questions or concerns that I had. On the day of m wedding she did everything I asked of her and more. My wedding makeup still looked great when the wedding was over which was my biggest concern. More...

I love Alpha! I don't even know where to begin! She is such an amazing person, so down-to-earth, professional, talented, and always happy. I am so happy that she played such a huge part for my wedding.

Alpha's super talented with make-up and hair. I am definitely not the type of girl who puts on make-up regularly or even gets her hair done (ever!). The day of the trial, Alpha knew exactly what makeup would work perfectly and I loved it! It was not heavy, it was perfect!
I let her know that I wanted a braid as part of my hairstyle and what she did was AMAZING! It was better than all other pictures I've looked through. I really didn't want to wash off the make-up or take out my hair at night!!
One of my friends told me to leave my hair longer so that I have more styles to choose from...I felt really bad because I think I left it too long but Alpha didn't complain at all! She worked super hard to give me the most beautiful hairstyle ever!

On the day of the wedding, she came early with her assistants to set up and started working her magic with the moms and bridesmaids. Alpha and the assistants were super nice, professional, and laughed with us the whole time. They refused to eat until they've finished with all of us...it was 4pm when we were done! We were running late but she was there to make sure I was perfect before letting me walk out the door.
All my moms and bridesmaids loved their hair and make-up too!

I really truly felt beautiful the day of my wedding and Alpha made it all happen. I told my husband that if I ever need hair and make-up done again, I'm going with Alpha in a heartbeat because SHE IS AMAZING!



7 July 2011

I love Alpha and I would like her to come every morning to do my makeup.

Alpha was my MUA for my July 7, 2011 Dana Point wedding. I originally found her via Weddingwire as well as Yelp. I am a makeup novice. I only wear lipstick and @ times tinted moisturizer, so I needed a MUA to ensure I didn't look washed out for my wedding pictures.

Alpha worked her magic on myself as well as my MOH. We looked like Super Models. Due to her artisty, my makeup was spot on even @ my wedding dinner(7-10pm).(The only touch-up I made was to add more lipstick @ the dinner.) And that is amazing considering my makeup was completed @ 12:30pm. That's before I helped to setup chairs, took photos @ the beach, and ran around like a crazed frazzled bride until we married @ 6pm.

I can't say enough of Alpha's professionalism(invoices, contracts, and paypal) as well as her friendly and warm personality(we were laughing and talking the entire time.) I can't wait to book her for another event.

Thank you Alpha for turning this plain Jane into a Super Model bride.



2 July 2011

Alpha truly went above and beyond during my wedding! Not only did I look amazing but she also helped in many other ways. During the rush before the wedding, my entire wedding party was still getting ready and there was no one available to help me get dressed, pack up, etc....alpha to the rescue. She got me in my dress, helped my bridesmaids, supplied items forgot by others, and even carried my luggage out of the hotel! She helped me reall enjoy my day by being so much fun to be around but also there to remind me to let the stress go.
She worked great with all of my other vendors and the photographer even commented about how great it was that she had her own lighting with her to ensure that your makeup will be photographed exactly as it should.
I gave her 4 stars on responsiveness only because in the beginning it was a little difficult to reach her, but later this was not a problem. I would recommend her to ANYONE! Alpha is truly great!



10 June 2011

Alpha and her team were absolutely amazing!!! I used them for my wedding in Temecula on June 10, 2011. She and her team did hair and make up for the entire bridal party. They were fun, professional, and did an amazing job. I received so many comments at the wedding about how great my hair and make up were, and I am now receiving them after friends are viewing the pictures. Thank you Alpha and Team for the wonderful job you did, I strongly reccommend them to anyone!!!! More...



1 June 2011

I love Alpha! She is such an awesome hairstylist and make up artist. I used her for a last minute session and she was able to coordinate me in on a holiday weekend. She did exactly what I wanted with my make up and hair look. I would definitely recommend her to others. She was super fun and I felt like we were long time friends. Thanks Alpha for everything!!! You rock, Love

I had Alpha do my hair for my best friend's wedding. She drove an hour out of her way to do my hair and the bride's hair. Alpha is a very sweet person. She was easy to talk to and make suggestion to. She had a great sense of humor. She made my hair look 10 times better than I could ever have. I was really surprise by her act of kindness when she travel to the wedding site to make sure our hair made it safely to the country club. I will be calling her again if I have another event. Thank you so much Alpha. More...



21 May 2011

Alpha is a wonderful artist to work with! I've gone to her for a hair cut, had her do my makeup for my engagement shoot (11/20/10), and had her do my hair and makeup for my wedding as well (5/21/11). She's fun and professional, and soooo easy to work with. She and her team traveled to our hotel on the morning of my wedding. They were quick to set up, super efficient, and did an awesome job. All my girls, along with my mom, looked absolutely fabulous! And I loved everything that Alpha did for my hair and makeup. I wanted a wow factor and asked her to make my eyes look as big as possible, and voila! Lashes for days! She nailed the look I was going for and I couldn't be happier!

She was at hand after the ceremony as well, wearing her handy dandy makeup tool belt, armed and ready for necessary touch ups. I think this is a wonderful service she provides for her brides at no extra cost. I discovered that she doesn't book more than one wedding a day, because she truly wants her brides to feel special and give them the proper attention they need on their special day. Isn't that awesome

I didn't want to wear my veil during the reception, but I didn't have a hairpiece to add that special touch. Alpha came up with a great idea and took flowers from my toss bouquet and designed a cute hairpiece of her own. She was truly amazing, and she made me feel that much more beautiful on the best day of my life. Thank you for everything, Alpha!

BTW - she also cuts hair, so if you're in the Long Beach area, make an appointment with her!



26 March 2011

If you're looking for a very creative, talented and professional hair and makeup artist for your wedding, look no further! Alpha and her team at Sweet Fuss are the best! Not only is Alpha talented and professional, she is very easy to talk to and flexible. I was really unsure about how to do my hair and makeup and Alpha was very patient with me and helped me figure out the "perfect look" that I wanted. I also had an unusually large wedding party (15 bridesmaids!) and Sweet Fuss was able to make us all look beautiful in time for my wedding without sacrificing quality.

Alpha also offers personal assistance by touching up your hair, makeup, dress, veil, etc. before and after your ceremony which was a godsend for me since I knew I would be a mess. I also found a stain on my dress right before I walked down the aisle and Alpha was ready with a Tide stain remover pen in her handy dandy emergency kit!

What else are you looking for?!? Book Alpha and her team today!



17 March 2011

Amazing wouldn't do Alpha any justice. She is very attentive and her attention to detail is great. She made me look like a princess and I am so pleased with her work. Not only is she a wonderful professional, but a lovely person in general. She uses great products and makes sure you are comfortable through the whole process. She is so helpful and is very accommodating to any beauty needs or requests. She certainly shows that she is passionate about her work. I had a wonderful time getting to know her! Alpha will definitely make you look fabulous!!! More...



26 February 2011

I recently had the opportunity to work with Alpha for my wedding on February 26, 2011. She is such a talented hair and make up artist. I found her through Yelp when I was doing my research for a wedding hair and make up artist. When I first inquired about her services, Alpha was always so quick to respond and was very friendly. She did my hair and make up for our engagement shoot as well as our wedding. My husband was very impressed with the way I looked as well. She's not just someone who does my hair and make up but we've had quite a few good laughs together. I definitely had a good time with her! The morning of the wedding, she met me and my maid of honor in our hotel room. She set her stuff up and started working on my MOH first. After that, it was my turn. I was so excited and definitely had a lot of butterflies in my stomach. After all, isn't this every girls' dream? I've found the man of my dreams! :) Alpha is a very great person to work with. She made me feel so comfortable on my wedding day. My mom also came to the hotel because I wanted her to help me get my dress on. Little did I know, she didn't know how to tie a corset dress! For a second, I got stressed out. But in a calm voice, Alpha told my mom how to do it and they both did it together. I loved how she approached my mom in a calming voice. Otherwise, my stress level would have definitely increased! She then met us at the church and just kept applying touch ups as needed. She was with me right up until our reception. Alpha is so down to earth and definitely someone I would recommend to anyone getting married or just wanna get made up for a special day. Thanks Alpha! See you soon! :) More...



4 December 2010

I recently got married this past December and Alpha was absolutely amazing! My original hairstylist backed out on me 3 weeks before the wedding. I called up Alpha and she was SO accommodating and was able to do the day of my wedding. After I gave her the necessary details, the turnaround for the contract and scheduling the trial was so quick! Alpha has definitely got some GREAT talent and a WONDERFUL personality. For the quality of the service, the price is definitely right! The fact that she came to my venue to make sure I was absolutely FLAWLESS before I walked down the aisle was an added plus! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Alpha to anyone wants to look absolutely stunning for their wedding or special event! More...



27 November 2010

I did a boudoir photo-shoot a couple a months ago with Alpha going into it a bit shy and intimidated by the whole thing. As soon as I sat in the chair, she made me feel sooo comfortable. Her vibe and personality made me feel like I had nothing to worry about. Her calmness made me calm and that's exactly what I needed on a day like this. She took her time with my make-up, attaching each individual eyelash with precision. But what I loved most was the make-up. I'm a person who doesn't wear a lot of make-up, and in the end result of her finishing, she made my skin look incredibly amazing, the make-up didn't look caked on, and her vision for my hair was spot on. I felt glamourous. What i love about Alpha is that she really does know her hair and make-up and personalizes it to that individuals features. Thanks Alpha! More...



8 October 2010

Words cannot express just how truly lovely Alpha is and how wonderfully talented she is at what she does. I used Sweet Fuss services for my Fall 2010 wedding at Ponte Winery in Temecula. I like many other brides believe that hair and makeup is just as important as the wedding dress itself so in no way was I not going to search for the best of the best. Luckily I found that with Alpha and her super sweet personality and her extremely professional manner.

When you choose Alpha as your hair and makeup professional you are not only getting her services for one or two hours it may take to get you beautiful. She as well will stay with you for a few hours after to help do touch up after the ceremony or before picture taking. That was the cherry on top for me for sure!! Alpha was such a big help to me on my wedding day and I am truly grateful to her for everything she did.

I have always been a girl who doesn’t wear much makeup or get my hair professional styled very often so it was hard for me to describe precisely what I wanted to look like on my wedding day. My terminology was horribly wrong but sweet Alpha listened to everything I said and was able to create a look for me that was perfect and exactly what I wanted and dreamed of for my special day.

Working with Alpha feels more like two old friends hanging out playing dress-up instead of some business agreement where she is only there to do one thing, get paid, and leave. I am so lucky to have found Alpha for my wedding and can only hope anyone who reads all these amazing reviews will also hire her and her team to make their special occasion unforgettable.

Thank you Alpha and I hope we will get to work together again!!!! YOU ROCK : )




25 September 2010

Alpha did my hair and make-up for my September wedding. Alpha is a talented woman and takes the time to understand what you are looking for and capturing that in her art – you! She is professional, calm, cheery and an absolute sweet heart, exactly who you want to have in your bridal suite (yes, she comes to your venue!) on your BIG day. Alpha dolled me up and I have never felt more stunning! She went above and beyond in stepping in to help however she could that day. After a photo shoot in 100+ degree weather, she fixed my hair and reapplied my make-up before I walked down the aisle to make sure I looked flawless. I also want to note that the makeup photographed beautifully. Alpha is passionate about her work and takes pride in it! I will continue to recommend her to any bride-to-be! Thank you Alpha! More...



19 September 2010

Alpha and Brie were amazing! They were so much fun and do such incredible work. I was part of a bridal party, and I absolutely loved the way my hair and makeup turned out. Alpha and Brie were really flexible with both specific requests or more general requests. The pictures came out great and my hair/makeup stayed put all day long. Alpha and her team were professional, personable, and a lot of fun - they are definitely the ones you want taking care of you on your wedding day! More...



7 August 2010

I work in the entertainment industry and have had the pleasure of working with many talented celebrity makeup artists for my client. When I heard about Alpha, I checked out her website and was immediately impressed by her work. My friend was getting married, so I told her about Sweet Fuss and said she should have a trial session with Alpha. My friend did so and immediately booked her for the wedding for herself, mother of the bride, and bridal party.

The day of the wedding, Alpha was a total doll! She was friendly, fun, and professional. Everyone's makeup was impeccable as Alpha knows how to bring out each person's best features. The makeup not only looked good, but photographed extremely well......and it lasted all day and night! You can just tell how much she loves what she does and how much pride she has in her work.

Alpha is definitely on par with some of the best celebrity makeup artists in the business. Not only are her technical skills impressive, but her attitude and personality make her easy and comfortable to be around. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a hair/makeup artist for any occasion or event, and I will be letting all my friends know about Sweet Fuss!



31 July 2010

Not only is Alpha a super talented hair & makeup artist, she is an amazing person! I live in SoCal but had my wedding up north in Half Moon Bay. She was so accommodating with my trial, contract amendments, location, etc. She is extremely professional and organized. It was a treat to have her with me until 6pm that evening! Her positive personality is contagious and so great to have around!

Alpha was not only my vendor but I know will be my friend for many years to come! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone looking for an uber talented artist!



17 July 2010

First off, let me start by saying I'm extremely picky when it comes to my hair and makeup, especially it being for my wedding day. I have had my hair and makeup done on numerous occasions and never have been fully satisfied with the end result. On my wedding day I can honestly say I was fully satisfied and I've never felt so beautiful. Alpha = Amazingness :) Alpha came to my rescue one week before my wedding day after lets just say a not so great experience with another makeup artist and stylist. She put me at ease and made me feel confident that everything would be perfect the day of my wedding, which it was. My hair was awesome, exactly what I envisioned. My makeup was flawless, the airbrushing was natural looking and incredibly clean and smooth. I love the look of false eyelashes but am always reluctant to wear them because of how sensitive my eyes are. My wedding day was the first time I was able to wear false eyelashes for more than a couple hours. Not sure what her secret is, but I had them on for about 9 hours and never had any problems or irritated eyes. They didn't look overdone or costume-y; they just enhanced my eyes and made for a more dramatic but but still natural look. My bridesmaids also had their hair and makeup done and looked equally as fabulous as I. It was a pleasure working with her, she has such an awesome personality, very professional, and extremely talented at what she does. I wish Alpha could do my hair and makeup everyday! More...



5 June 2010

Alpha was awesome! My makeup lasted all day and night. I have to say she had everything handy and ready to go! Without her my pictures wouldn't of came out so good. ;)



10 April 2010

OMG! Alpha is just amazing! She did my hair and makeup for my 4/10/10 wedding. Not only was she professional but she really cares about her clients and their happiness. She did everything to make sure my hair and makeup were just perfect, and was such an important part of my big day. I can't tell you how happy I am with all of her work, and she is just plain fun and amazing to have around. You would be lucky to have her be a part of your big day!!! More...



29 March 2010

Alpha – Your work is so amazing! You really know how to make a woman look beautiful with your awesome talent. You know exactly what to do with the hair styles and the make-up.
I was a little afraid that my curly thick hair was going to scare you and you surprised me with your talent. You just took charge and did what you thought was good for my face structure and you made it happen. “YOU ROCK”! You made my photo shoot so comfortable and enjoyable. You are the person I will call on any special occasion I have and will 100% recommend you to all my friends. Love it!!



20 March 2010

Alpha recently did my hair and makeup for my boudoir session and she was absolutely fabulous! She made me feel so comfortable and she did an excellent job on creating the different "looks" that I wanted to emulate. Not only is Alpha a fantastic hair/makeup artist, but she is one of the coolest, sweetest, and most fun gals I have ever met! And it didn't hurt that she made me feel oh so sexy... ;-) More...



14 January 2010

I contacted Alpha to style one of my clients for her engagement shoot based on word of mouth reviews I'd heard. True to the rumor mill, Alpha was fantastic. Not only did my client look stunning, she told me how relaxed and at ease she felt. As a wedding planner, I know exactly how stressed brides can become over the smallest detail, but Alpha's cheery nature and incredible talent made the early morning session a delight for my sweet bride. She was very flexible with our early time table and the prices are competitive. I continue to recommend her to other brides!

Alpha is a very talented woman! I went to several trial sessions to find the right look for my wedding, and Alpha was the only one who got it exactly the way I wanted - natural and elegant. Alpha takes consideration of your skin type, face shape, even the color of your dress -- She is very professional, organized, flexible, creative, and FUN! Her work comes out beautifully in pictures and lasts throughout the night. You can tell she loves what she does because it shows in her beautiful work. I would definitely recommend her to friends, as she is the best in the business! More...



10 October 2009

Alpha Borriboonratana of Sweet Fuss hair and makeup is nothing short of sensational. She executed the hair and makeup for my engagement party and engagement photo shoot.

I feel like it's extremely difficult to find such personable and professional people for some of the most moments in your life, and Alpha more than supersedes all those requirements. She really gets personal and hands on with the client to the point where you don't feel like you're just another job. I felt so comfortable and confident throughout the whole process, and I'm truly glad to have someone like her being a part of my most precious and dear moments.

Thanks again Alpha, to a fabulous journey, and exquisite work. Can't wait to have you do the wedding!!

Sweet Fuss did my make-up for my wedding. After searching for a make-up person and going through many trials I was not completely satisfied, until the person that was doing my hair recommended Alpha, the make-up artist. From the first moment, she was very responsive and detailed about her work. She asked for some information like pictures of me, my skin type, and details about my dress in order for her to get an idea for the best make up. She was very detailed and made sure that my make up offered me full coverage and would last. She was very profesional, when she first opened up her make-up case, I knew that after seeing her very organized that I would be happy with her work. I payed for two more hours to have her redo my make up just to ensure that I looked beautiful all day and It was money well spent. She was very easy to get along with and I enjoyed having her come to my house to do my trial and to do my make up for my wedding as well. I would recommend her in the future without a doubt.

14 August 2009

Alpha recently did my hair and makeup for an amazing boudoir photo shoot, and I could not be more excited!! She was such a positive, happy, professional & friendly woman. She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, and is a true artist. She was meticulous and loves what she does. I have never felt so relaxed/beautiful while having someone doing my makeup before, and i've also never looked so beautiful in my life! More...



27 June 2009

I highly recommend Alpha at Sweet Fuss Hair and Makeup. She was very professional and extreemly talented. For the cost and performance she can't be beat. She provided a pre-wedding run through so we could get the makeup just right for my big day. On the day of my wedding I felt like the false eyelashes we had chose at the pre consult were too big. Alpha was well prepared and broke out 3 other styles for me to choose from. My makeup was simple yet eligant, I looked like me, but better! Which is what I was wanting. I have no doubt that her talent extends into extreem fashion makeup as well if that is what you prefer. More...



9 September 2006

Alpha listened to what I wanted and made sure I was happy with my hair and makeup. She took her time with me but also worked efficiently. She is very personable, professional, and creative. I truly enjoyed utilizing her services. More...
